Tax day is here, and whether you are a procrastinator who waited until the final hours or you had your return in the first week of January, plenty of area stores and restaurants want to reward you for your number-crunching efforts.
Once you’ve filed your taxes, treat yourself with one (or several) of these freebies and discounts (offers are good for April 15 only unless otherwise noted):
Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay will offer one free admission (good through May 22), for each tax return mailed via the onsite mobile post office.
Zappos is making tax day a little easier by sponsoring free coffee, pastries and stamps at various locations: Grouchy Johns, 8520 S. Maryland Parkway; Grouchy Johns Truck, Sunset Post Office (4-7 p.m.), 1001 E Sunset Road; Sambalatte, 750 S. Rampart Blvd.; Sambalatte, 6555 S. Jones Blvd.; Sunrise Coffee, 3130 E. Sunset Road; Bronze Café, 401 S. Maryland Parkway; Tipsy Coffee House, 6496 Medical Center Drive; Tiabi Coffee & Waffle Bar, 3961 Maryland Parkway; Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf locations.
Schlotzky’s Deli is offering one free sandwich with the purchase of a 32 oz. drink and chips.
Get your sweet reward from Great American Cookies, which is handing out one free chocolate chip cookie to everyone.
The less bashful can take Hard Rock Café, 3771 Las Vegas Blvd. South, up on its offer to sing for your supper. Only on tax day, hungry filers can sing a song (picked from a list) and win a free entrée. Call 702-733-7625 for details.
All Sonic slushies and drinks are half price.
If food is not your stress-reliever of choice, try a free mini-massage (available April 15-18 with coupon) from area HydroMassage locations.
