Have you enjoyed your free cup of McDonalds coffee today?
Your free curly fries from Arby’s?
Or shredded documents (up to five pounds) at Office Depot…for free?
These are just a few examples of the Tax Day Freebies that companies around the country are offering today to ease the squeeze on your bank account.
Well…isn’t that special. Or is it?
Are these retailers — like Great American Cookie who is giving away free chocolate chip — doing this out of the goodness of their hearts (and love of free publicity)? Or is it for the tax break they can take for offering these incentives?
I would guess the latter. (And really, who can blame them?)
Oh, and if you’re looking for me this evening, I’ll be ‘singing for my supper’ at Hard Rock Cafe — sing a song, get an entree.
Do re free!
