Tax Day Freebies

2022 Tax Day Freebies and Deals

Ahh, glorious Income Tax Day is upon us with but a single day to spare. I've still yet to finish mine. I've only entered in my name and address on my Turbo Tax account, but the status bar still reads as 0% complete. That's not too encouraging if you ask me. I might just end up filing for an extension this morning. Hooray Democracy! At least I'm a few steps ahead of Homer Simpson.

While I toil away at figuring out which of my plants count as dependents (hey, they couldn't live without me!), enjoy this list of 2022 Tax Day freebies and deals! I should note, you may see other frugal sites reporting additional freebies, but I didn't include those. Everything below are offers with hard evidence for them online.

Unless otherwise noted, these freebies are available on Monday, April 18, 2022 only.

Free Arby's Fries & Drink

Free Arby’s Fries and Drink

Calling all Arby's fans!

nope

Hey, where'd everyone go?

It's not the most fantastic of deals, but if you're in the market for a cheap lunch, then why not get a free small fries and drink with the purchase of an Arby's Loaded Italian sandwich? This freebie is valid through 3/28/18.


Free Auntie Anne's Pretzel

Free Auntie Anne’s Pretzel on March 3

Free Pretzel Day Monday, April 26, 2021 which means you can get a free Auntie Anne's original or cinnamon sugar pretzel. However, this year we only get freebies if one million people RSVP ahead of time. So far, they're a sliver over 200k, so we've got a ways to go.

Assuming we hit our milestone, head to your local spot from 10am to 2pm and pick up your free Auntie Anne's pretzel.

The only downside is you have to leave your house in order to get the freebie and that means you have to put on pants. And who willingly wears pants during the weekend?

🎂 Birthday Freebie Reminder 🚨

Don't forget to sign up for Auntie Anne's birthday freebie and get a free pretzel every year! 🥨

[thanks to everyone who sent this in!]


Free BJs Wholesale Membership

Free BJ’s Wholesale Club Membership

While the free membership deal is no longer available, BJ's is constantly offering their $55 membership for only $25!

My East coast Hiffers might be interested in a free 90-day BJ's Wholesale Club membership. You'll need to scroll down to the bottom right of their homepage, then click on the green box that says “get a free 3-month membership.” (Look for the image below) After filling out the form, you'll receive a confirmation email and can pick up your membership card at your local BJ's Member Service Desk.

I know I've got one of these fairly close to me, so I might stop in and check it out. At the very least, I could buy a 20-gallon jar of honey mustard that should last me until July. Oh, who am I kidding, June at the latest.

They only have stores in 15 states, so I wouldn't be surprised if some Hiffers don't find this useful. You know, when I open my own brick-and-mortar company one day, I'll build a store in every town in America! That way, anybody anywhere can visit one of my stores and participate in a freebie. I won't even bother with all of those nerdy things like “return on investments” or “profit margins.” Who cares about that stuff?!

*KAPERRRZ* A time machine suddenly appears, future Goob steps forth and punches current Goob in the face while muttering something about potential investors digging up this post in the future.


Free American Red Cross CPR Classes

The American Red Cross is waiving their usual $25 fee and offering free CPR classes on Saturday, March 19. There are over 100 participating locations, but be sure to check the map on their site because they're randomly scattered across the country. My nearby branch isn't participating, so looks like I'll have to teach myself via a YouTube video. Don't worry, I'm sure xAwesomeDude003x has valid credentials.


Free Lowe’s & Toys R Us Events on 04/17

I guess these free Lowe's Build & Grow Clinic are every weekend now, because tomorrow from 10-11am they'll be building a free flower planter. After your finished playing Bob The Builder, head over to Toys R Us from 11am 1-pm for a free Thomas the Tank Engine event.

Okay, I had to put my cat down this morning, so I'm not feeling the funny today. She was a fantastic, old kitty who loved sunning all morning, sleeping on our chests at night, and slyly letting the dogs get close enough to almost sniff her butt before smacking their heads at any hour of the day. In other words, she spent 19 years rockin' out. She'll be dearly missed in the Goob household, but damn, you could not have asked for a better cat.


Free Whataburger Coupons

From December 2nd through the 24th, Whataburger is giving away free coupons every other day. In order to get them, simply sign up in advance and you'll get a random coupon e-mailed to you each day they're released. Speaking of food, I think it's time to head back to the fridge. Twelfth round of Thanksgiving leftovers, here I come!


Coupon: Free KFC Meal

Not to be outdone by Chick-fil-A, Oprah is giving away a coupon good for two free pieces of KFC chicken, two individual sides, and a biscuit! Plus, the terms say you're limited to four prints of the coupon. Talk about an amazing offer – toss in a water and you've got yourself four free meals.

You have until 9:59pm CDT 5/6/09 to print the coupon. You can then redeem it at any participating KFC location from 5/5/09 to 5/19/09, excluding Mother's Day.

Now come on, who was planning on taking their mom to KFC for her Mother's Day meal?

Update: As many people have commented, KFC is no longer accepting these coupons. They are instead issuing rain-checks.
