NBC NATIONAL NEWS — The time-honored tradition of Tax Day freebies comes with a new twist this year. Retailers who offer them up to ease the pain of paying taxes are going viral with their message.
You can go to Arby's Facebook page for a coupon for a free order of curly fries. The coupon for a bargain on bagels is on Bruegger's page.
By liking Panda Express on Facebook you'll get a free serving of its Shanghai Angus Steak.
Seattle's Best Coffee has free coffee available on its page, while Firehouse Subs is using Facebook to get word out its Tax Day "Double-The-Meat" deal.
Chili's website is where you go for the coupon for a free appetizer or dessert.
Still, not every deal requires a download. Some call for a trip to the store.
Office Depot is offering anyone who comes in today or tomorrow up to five pounds of free shredding as well as 25 free black and white copies of anything.
A trip to MaggieMoo's Ice Cream or Marble Slab Creamery pays off with a free scoop of frozen yogurt from 4 to 7pm Tuesday, and PF Chang's is giving a 15-percent discount on dine-in and carry-out orders to ease the sting of Tax Day.
