Monday’s Money Deals: Washers, Memory Cards, and Lots of Free Stuff

Happy Tax Day! If you’re expecting a refund, we’re here to help you spend it wisely. There are great deals today on lingerie and swimwear, bedding, and jewelry.

First, freebies. Tax Day has become a favorite for using free stuff to lure customers. In the food category, you can get a 3-ounce Fundae at Maggie Moo’s Ice Cream from 3 to 6 p.m., and two Cinnabon Bites at Cinnabon from 6 to 8 p.m. You can get free fries at Arby’s with a Facebook coupon, a free dessert or appetizer at Chili’s, and buy-one-get-one-free burgers at McDonald’s.

Less fattening and more fun: Free admission to the nearest national park. Celebrate National Park Week – and the fact the government didn’t shut down last week and ruin this deal.

Other freebies: Office Depot will copy your tax return free through today – limit 25 pages. Bally Total Fitness will let you work out that tax-related stress free today, and if you’re already a member, free personal training. Already in great shape? Chemistry.com will help you show that hot bod to a member of the opposite sex with a free 3-day membership.

And if all that rubbed you the wrong way, HydroMassage is offering a free 10-minute mini-massage.

In other deals, you can score an 8 GB SD memory card for $24, or $17 if you have luck with mail-in rebates. (See our story 5 Tips to Win the Rebate Game.)

Meanwhile, Victoria’s Secret is having a sale up to 70 percent off, including swimsuits for under $10. Make sure to use the drop-down menu and not the sidebar or links at the bottom – those lead to more expensive stuff.

And while grown women can’t fit inside, their kids might enjoy this rainbow kiddie pool which is half off at $15 on Amazon through Tuesday.

Speaking of moms, Linens ‘n Things is celebrating them with coupon code MOM20, good for 20 percent off many items online, including already discounted ones like this 7-piece bedding set, which is already $50 off. Products the coupon applies to are marked “couponable.” Apparently, you can invent words as long as you invent savings with them.

Need a new washer? Best Buy lives up to its name with a bargain on this Samsung washer, which is 40 percent off, at $425 instead of the $700-plus price tag seen elsewhere. But the deal is likely to end soon.

One more for the ladies: Amazon has exotic and semi-precious gemstone rings up to 60 percent off in 10k and 14k gold.

Far less exciting but very necessary: up to 60 percent off surge protectors at Amazon.

For even more savings throughout the week, check out our Deals page. As always, feel free to share your own finds in the comments.
