Marketing companies have once again found a way to take advantage of people's emotional outrage over something. Of course there's the old saying -- there are only two certainties in life: Death and taxes.
But now food companies are looking to make tax day deals a third.
Several restaurants and fast food chains here in the Valley are offering up some good deals. Some of them are only good for today and others won't expire until the end of the week.
Valley locations include -- Marble Slab, Chili's, Cinnabon, Arbys, Boston Market, Sonic, and Chevy's Fresh Mex are all offering a free menu item. PF Chang's is actually giving customers 15-percent off all orders both dine-in and carry out. And panda express is actually using today as a launching point for its new Shanghai Angus Steak.
One thing to remember is that you need to print out coupons in order to cash in on these deals and you need to read the fine print. Some are only good at certain locations and specific hours or while supplies last. So when you head out today and write that check to the government you can at least do it with a full stomach.
