Mr. Taxman cometh

Mr. Taxman has reared his ugly head. He may not give a crap that YOU and I didn’t get a bailout, but some retailers are giving us the props we all deserve. Today the free stuff abounds. Oh how the cheap girl in me is singing! Check out some of the free or near freebies out there. Sure you’ll have to spend another 12.3 hours on the freakin’ treadmill after you make the rounds but hey it’s FREE!


Get two free bite-sized cupcakes from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at participating mall locations as part of “Tax Day Bites!” Flavors include Chocolate Passion, 24-Carrot Cake, Vanilla Bliss and Cinnacake Classic.

(Do you think they’ll let me bring one of these?) 

Get free brewed coffee all day Thursday if you bring your own mug. The gang at The Bucks is going easy on our wallets AND the environment with this promotion.


Get one free slice of ice cream pizza – ice cream with red frosting to look like sauce and white chocolate to look like cheese – at participating locations from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.

IHOP YEAH mommy can take the night off ALL April long. IHOP has extended their tax “credit” to parents! IHOP is offering free dinner for one child age 12 or younger with each adult meal purchased 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. all month long.

  1. I'm surprised that it's health-code-approved to bring your own coffee cup in to Starbucks!

    (Yes, that's what I took away from this post. Sorry.)

  2. I'm kicking myself for missing out on Starbucks' free coffee! Not having to spend the money would have helped ease the pain a little bit. It all helps, and Starbucks is so expensive. Here in CA we call it Fivebucks.
