I do my taxes as soon as possible and take them to an accountant that I have used for years in order to get my refund back as quickly as possible. Because of this I do not get any freebies or other discounts or things of that nature that are offered by bigger companies.
Every year on April 15th, many businesses offer freebies in honor of Tax Day. A majority of people take advantage of these opportunities while others may not know about them or don't care about the freebies. I was one of the few who didn't know about the Tax Day freebies, I was too busy filing my taxes at the last minute to concentrate on the freebies. Although, if I wasn't preoccupied about my taxes and had known about the freebies beforehand, I would've taken advantage of them.
This year's tax day "freebies" didn't tend to be free at all, rather requiring a purchase I may have not otherwise made in order to acquire anything of actual value. I don't tend to clip coupons or seek out free "swag," as my time is more valuable when spent working for actual wage that chasing down handouts.
No, I didn't take up the offer of any Tax Day freebies. I didn't know such a thing existed, or I would have. Companies should do a better job of advertising that they do this. Such things generate goodwill in the buying market, and I would have loved to try something new that I might have stuck with.
