Keeping with our theme of Tax Day, you can celebrate by taking advantage of a long list of deals and freebies. Laura Thornquist shares today's "Insider Savings" tips.

Now that our taxes are finished, we can all breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy a day of freebies.

Let's start at Marble Slab Creamery or Maggie Moo's Ice Cream and Treatery. Between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. today, you can pick up a "Yo-bate" with a free scoop of their delicious new yogurt flavors.

Thirsty? Sonic is offering half-price drinks all day today; I hear a cherry slush calling my name.

Start your day with free coffee at Seattle's Best and then finish with Cinnabon. You can grab two free Cinnabon bites today between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.

P.F. Chang's, Arby's and Boston Market have also all gotten into the action. Purchase one individual meal and fountain drink at Boston Market and get a second meal of equal or lesser value for free. Go to my website,, to print the coupon.

Between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m., Arby's will give you free curly fries. Just go to their Facebook page, and "like" them to print off your coupon. Then enter their Arby's "Tax Relief Sweepstakes" for a chance to win $5,000 in tax relief.

And, stop by P.F. Chang's today and get 15 percent off your meal. This tax relief discount is not valid on large party take-out or delivery orders or with gift card purchases.

Finally, visit HydroMassage and get a free HydroMassage any time this week. This freebie is good through April 20. Call ahead to schedule your free massage.

Remember the restaurant freebies are good today only. Always call ahead to make sure your favorite restaurant is participating.
