Where to get free food to ease the pain of Tax Day


The average U.S. tax refund is $3,000, but while Reuters suggests using that refund for fun things like buying 600 mocha frappuccinos from Starbucks, we suggest getting some free food come Tax Day (which is tomorrow, in case you forgot).

In the fast-food world, Arby's is handing out free curly fries with a coupon.

Chili's is offering a free appetizer or dessert when you buy an entrée, also with a coupon.

Grab two free Cinnabon Bites from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Marble Slab Creamery and MaggieMoo's Ice Cream are handing out free scoops of frozen yogurt from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Flavors include lemon créme, birthday cake, and forest berry.

Panda Express is dishing out free Shanghai Angus Steak entrées, with offers available on Facebook.

And as for your caffeine fix, Seattle's Best Coffee is sending out free coffee samples (in exchange for a Facebook like).

There's plenty of other Tax Day food relief stunts out there for some Tax Day fun. Or just spend your entire tax refund on two VIP tickets for Madonna's concert at Yankee Stadium.
