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.

  1. They must have changed the wording on the Sonic deal. Page now reads, “Offer includes single-patty SONICยฎ Cheeseburgers (approx. 1/4 lb. precooked) only. Add-Ons cost extra/ Not good in conjunction with combos,”

  2. These were stated in my local paper as well:

    Office Depot โ€“ 25 free black and white copies one sided

    Panda Express โ€“ Free Samurai Surf and Turf (4/17)

    Chick-fil-A โ€“ (I like this one its creative). Buy anything on 4/15 save your receipt and take back on 5/14 to receive a full refund.

    • Thanks Jackie. The Office Depot offer is legit, but beware the Chick-fil-A Panda offer. I’m pretty sure it’s only regionally in two or three small areas.

  3. LOL free dates to “help singles take their mind off taxes!” I think a trip to Tahiti would help me take my mind off taxes … just saying.

  4. The town I live in only has a Wendy’s, a Dairy Queen. a Dunkin Donuts and a Pizza Hut. The only one of the places in this freebie that I have even heard of in Maine is Starbucks and I would have to travel almost 50 miles to get there. There used to be a Cinnabon on the Maine Turnpike but I heard it closed down. Oh well, I guess I am saving a lot of calories.

  5. I visit your website daily, a couple times a day & enjoy it.
    Thank you for posting the freebies, especially for the Starbucks Free Coffee for Tax Day. Pike’s Peak Place coffee is awesome!

  6. Well, boo hoo…. Subway here didn’t honor the ‘free cookie’ deal. Sigh… At least I got my coffee though. Thanks for the post.

  7. Actually what you could do with the Starbucks deal if you have more than one store in your area when you run out at one store just go to the next store for your refill…

  8. I think the Starbucks one is only good up to 20 oz. but it doesn’t say there’s any sort of limit to the number of times you can get in line, so… take a field trip to the car & come back for a refill??

    Also, if you sign up for their rewards program & make it to 5 stars (=5 purchases)… you can have FREE refills on brewed coffee (same visit only), a FREE drink on your birthday, AND two hours of FREE wi-fi whenever!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Happy birthday to me! I get to pay taxes and only one freebie. Oh, well…several years ago a friend gave me an insulated 64 ounce coffee cup! Guess what I’m taking to Starbucks!!! (after which I will be able to stay on-line for 5 days straight!!!!!)

  10. don’t forget about the free fry’s at jack in the fox on friday! i know it’s no longer tax day but its close. i can only go to starbucks because none are in my area. thanks!

  11. so i sent this email to my department and some other folks, not including my boss and next thing i knew she said my email made its way up the building and back to our office lol. spoke to a coworker and now I am also planning on doing the McCormick and Schmicks deal. if you sit at the bar you will get both the certificate (valid next visit only duh lol) and a $10.40 meal special. Ii wonder what meal that would entail though? I’m so excited!!

  12. Nothing in my area, but starbucks but I don’t drink coffee. This really sucks since I live in AL, & can drive easily to GA, but no Whole Foods locally.

  13. Not a lot in my area. But oh well! Someone on Facebook mentioned that Taco John’s is giving away a free taco, too, and I still have the free Cinnasopillas coupon from my birthday last week…so I might have to try that!

  14. I am very sad. The only one I will be able to use is Starbucks. I live in CA. and it seems we never get any of the good stuff! (if I have a cinnabons near, will not use it, too many carbs!!!)

  15. Maggie Moo’s giveaway was AWESOME!!!! Free full size scoops of the best ice cream in the world at Blacksburg, VA location. Thanks for the heads up!

  16. I went to an O’Charley’s in Indianapolis and they had little things on the table saying that they are giving away free homemade strawberry lemonade all day. It is more for administrative professional day, but it’s the same day as tax day!

  17. Goob, you’re lucky you don’t live in NY. After I entered my name and address into the free online tax software (TaxAct) it said that I owed the state $6.
