Today is/was your final day to file your taxes… I know, I know. It’s stressful. Whether you had to call a previous employer to track down a W2 or crunch numbers to pay back what you owe, I think it’s safe to say we’re all glad it’s over with. And I do mean all of us – Several restaurants and retailers are offering a deal or freebie of some kind on this #TaxDay2016. You know, so you don’t have to part with that refund so soon…
Here are a few that I know of:
Arby’s: Get two Arby’s Gyros for $6 until the end of the April.
