Have you filed your taxes yet? Time’s up, yo. A number of companies around the country are giving away free stuff to ease the pain of having to pay your taxes. (Although my taxes actually went down this year—despite what those troublemaking teabaggers said.)
Turns out there are plenty of merchants here in Albuquerque taking part in Tax Day giveaways. P.F. Chang’s China Bistro is giving 15 percent off dine-in or carry-out. Boston Market is offering buy one dinner get a second one free with a coupon off the restaurant’s Web site. Cinnabon is adding cupcakes to its menu, and you’re invited to pick up bite-sized samples at mall locations between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. today. Starbucks will fill up your cup for free if you bring in a travel mug today. (The chain is encouraging customers to go green and dump the paper cups.) Subway has a buy one sub, get one free offer. McDonald’s has free iced coffee with any purchase. Staples will make free copies (up to 20 pages) of your tax documents. El Pollo Loco will hand over a free Taco Al Carbon with any drink purchase, if you bring in a coupon.
Keep in mind, some stores are individually owned and may not be participating in special promotions like these. If you hear of any others, though, let us know!
Please Read: Mandatory Sex Test
I was perusing Planned Parenthood New Mexico’s Facespace page looking for updates on the Good Friday abortion protests when I noticed PPNM is offering a deal. For all of April, office visits for sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing are half off. It’s part of MTV’s GYT (Get Yourself Talking, Get Yourself Tested) campaign. Seriously, can we get some more acronyms around here?
To good sex and good health!
