Tax Day falls on Monday, April 15, this year, adding the Monday blues to the Tax Day blahs. Whether you anticipate receiving a refund or expect to owe money to the IRS this year, these restaurants and food chains are giving you a break — deals and freebies to ease the pain of Tax Day 2024.

Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant: The Mexican eatery, which has locations across eight states, mostly in the South, is offering its Mi Abuelo’s Rewards members $10 off their next visit when they spend a minimum of $50 during a promotional period, April 15 through April 18. The deal will automatically apply, and members may earn the reward more than once if they make separate visits during the promotional period. However, there is a limit of one promotional reward per visit.

Arby’s: Because Tax Day falls in April and April is Free Sandwich Month at Arby’s this year, the chain’s Rewards members can have one Free Sandwich deal loaded into their account to fuel themselves through a last-minute filing or celebrate submitting their returns. Rewards members can get one Free Sandwich Deal every week in April and redeem for any Arby’s sandwich when placing an order for any purchase online or on the Arby’s App.

Fazoli’s: Fazoli’s Tax Day deal revolves around its popular breadsticks. The Italian dining chain is offering six free breadsticks with a $5 purchase at participating locations when you use the code Tax24.

The limited-edition sip is available for $7 at participating TGI Fridays locations through Tuesday, April 30 — and it comes with a side shot of Hennessy V.S., which the chain says is “perfect for softening the blow of owing money after filing or rejoicing in the celebration of receiving a refund.” The chain is also offering a new $5 Happy Hour featuring a range of $5 beverages and bar bites at participating locations, Monday through Friday, 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. until closing time — so, it says, “guests can take a break from crunching numbers without breaking the bank.” Plus, through April 30, “to ease the pain of tax season,” it’s offering Fridays Rewards members a free entrée with the purchase of an entrée of equal or lesser value, along with the usual Rewards perks such as free chips and salsa or $3 off any appetizer when dining in.
