  1. Huh, I had no idea there were so many “tax relief” deals out there! Thx.

    Also, I’ll add a couple deals that are in effect every Wednesday (at least for a while):

    1. Bonefish Grill “Bang Wednesday” from 4pm to close: Bang Bang Tacos are just $5, Bang Bang Shrimp $6, Surf & Turf Burger $12, etc.

    2. Outback Steakhouse “No Worries Wednesday”: Entree + Side + Salad/Soup + Dessert for just $13

  2. For Boston Market, you can also get $3 back as statement credit of $15 with AMEX offers.Do not forget to add it. Expires: 04/16/2015

  3. I used my Chase Freedom card today while eating TexMex here in Dallas!

  4. Loved your post on tax day deals. But I got the email today, April 16! Why am I getting your post a day late? Please help, deals are time sensitive so I’d love to figure out how to get your emails on time.

  5. This April 15th Tax day specials sounds great. Unfortunately for me I didn’t receive the e-mail from you until 6:46 am today
    April 16th. What’s up with that?

  6. You could also use you discover card at Boston market. The discover deal gives you $3 credit on $15 or more like Amex offer but you’ll earn 5% cash back as well with your discover card
