April 17, 2012 – A date most taxpayers and preparers want to ignore but fear of the IRS keep us fulfilling our annual obligation. To help the day go a little smoother or at least get us in their doors, retailers are rolling out the freebies.
A good chunk of retailers are celebrating this special day with free items when making a purchase, e.g., 20 chicken wings at Hooters for $9.99 or Bruegger’s Big Bagel Bundle (bakers dozen plus 2 containers of cream cheese) for $10.49. But I’m just focusing on freebies that don’t require you and me to hand over any cash.
