(KAKE) -

Tax Day has officially arrived. As you file your returns, there may be a big reason to celebrate: freebies and deep savings.

A number of restaurants and retailers are giving people sweet rewards today. Please note that some local retailers do not participate in these deals, so it’s always best to ask while you shop. Here’s what’s being offered:

Sonic – We've seen posts of half-priced drinks and slushes, but the national Facebook account for Sonic shares that they'll have half-priced single-patty cheeseburgers. Sonic does offer the half-priced drink special after 8 p.m. NOTE: during Good Morning Kansas, we mentioned that the restaurants may offer 50-cent corn dogs. That is an old deal we shared by mistake. You should find the cheeseburger and drink deals, but ask before you order. Sometimes restaurants run out of deals on days like these. 

Staples  Up to 2 pounds of free document shredding. You can see the coupon info here.
