Tax Day Treats: Freebies and Discounts You Don’t Want to Miss at Hooters

HomeBusinessTax Day Treats: Freebies and Discounts You Don't Want to Miss at...

As Americans filed their tax returns for 2024, a smorgasbord of restaurants aimed to ease the pain with delectable deals and mouthwatering freebies on April 15th. From doughnuts to wings to pizzas, eateries big and small dished out specials to help sweeten Tax Day.

Krispy Kreme’s ‘Sweet Tax Break’ Deal

The doughnut giant Krispy Kreme once again served up its “Sweet Tax Break” promotion, offering customers a free Original Glazed dozen with the purchase of any dozen at regular price – paying only the sales tax amount for the freebie. This deal was available for in-store purchases with a limit of two dozen total per customer.

For those ordering online or via the mobile app, the limit was just one free Original Glazed dozen with any dozen purchased. But the tasty tax relief came at minimal cost, with customers only ponying up a few dollars in sales tax for those 12 free glazed gems.

Wings and Beer at Hooters to Help Drown Tax Season Sorrows

The beach-themed sports bar and grill Hooters aimed to take the sting out of Tax Day with some calorie-laden cures. Customers who purchased 10 wings at any Hooters location could get another 10 wings free, no matter the style or flavor.

To help wash down all those meaty morsels, Hooters also offered $4 draft beers of the Dos Equis variety as well as $4 Legendary Margaritas. And for members of the HootClub Rewards program, a free dessert valued up to $6.99 was on the house.

Tax Day Relief Via Discounted Delivery from GrubHub

For those looking to avoid crowded restaurants on Tax Day, the delivery service GrubHub stepped up with $15 off any order over $25. However, this promotion was only available to the first 1,000 customers to use the code TAXBREAK at checkout on April 15th.

So GrubHub’s tax relief came in the form of convenience and discounted delivery fees rather than free food items. But for households looking to sit back and be served without going out, it provided a solid money-saving option.

Buy One Sandwich, Get One Free at Potbelly

The sandwich chain Potbelly took a straightforward approach to its Tax Day promo – buy one Original or Big sandwich and get another Original sandwich absolutely free using the code BOGO online or through the app.

With most Potbelly sandwiches in the $5-10 range, this allowed patrons to pick up two filling handhelds for the price of one. Whether opting for the classic Italian sub or a breakfast sandwich, it was tough to beat this buy-one-get-one deal.

Arby’s Rewards Members Get Free Sandwiches All April

Not content to limit its giveaway to just Tax Day, Arby’s is providing Rewards members with a free sandwich every week throughout the entire month of April as part of its “Free Sandwich Month” promotion.

Each week, a new free sandwich option automatically loaded into the accounts of Rewards members who could then redeem it via mobile order or online with any purchase. Even for non-members, it was easy to quickly sign up for the program to start taking advantage.

Dave & Buster’s Half-Off Food Deal Through April

The restaurant and arcade chain Dave & Buster’s went big with a 50% discount on all food items from April 15th through the 28th. However, this deal was only available to members of the D&B Rewards program.

The timing coincided with the launch of over 20 new menu items at Dave & Buster’s, including Loaded Barbacoa Fries, Cajun Shrimp Pasta, and other enticing offerings. So members could essentially get half-priced sampling of the new expanded menu for two weeks.

Get $10 Off $40 Spent at California Pizza Kitchen

The California-inspired pizza chain rewarded big spenders on Tax Day, offering $10 off any purchase over $40 for those signed up for the CPK Rewards program. This discount applied to both dine-in and takeout orders.

While not as dramatic as a freebie, the $10 off $40 deal represented a solid 25% savings at California Pizza Kitchen. It could potentially trim enough off the total bill to allow diners an extra appetizer or dessert.

$10 Off $40 Orders at BJ’s for Tax Day Relief

The brewpub chain BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse also went with the $10 off $40 minimum purchase route for its Tax Day promo. But this deal was only valid on takeout and delivery orders made online with the code 10OFF40.

So rather than dining in, BJ’s customers could ease their Tax Day woes by taking advantage of this 25% discount to enjoy some deep dish pizzas, handcrafted burgers, or other menu items from the comfort of their own homes.

TGI Fridays Celebrates with New Cocktail and BOGO Entrees

The casual dining staple TGI Fridays unveiled a new limited-time cocktail called the Tax Break along with a buy-one-get-one free entree offer for Rewards members to help ring in the “holiday.”

The Tax Break cocktail featured tequila, citrus, agave, and fruity notes of strawberry and passionfruit. It even came with a complimentary pour of Hennessy to ease the pain for those writing big checks to the IRS – or celebrate for those getting refunds.

Meanwhile, the BOGO entree deal allowed Fridays Rewards members to get a second entree of equal or lesser value for free with every entree purchased through the end of April.

Free Pastries and More Tax Day Goodies

A number of other chains and local eateries jumped on the Tax Day bandwagon with their own deals and freebies:

Paris Baguette – Free pastry with any beverage purchase for Rewards members
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria – $10.40 off orders of $30 or more with TAXDAY24 code
PDQ Restaurants – Free chicken tender with any purchase
Burgerim – Free dessert or kid’s meal with purchase
Whether looking to ease the sting of a hefty tax bill or celebrate a nice refund, restaurants across the United States rolled out the red carpet on April 15th with an array of discounts and delicious giveaways. From doughnuts to burgers to cocktails, there were plenty of opportunities to indulge without breaking the bank on Tax Day 2024.
