    You posted this deal on April 6th in restaurant deals:

    Papa Murphy’s – $5 Pizza on Tax Day

    Your calendars are probably already marked for Tax Day (April 17!), but now you can mark them for a different reason. Pick up a $5 large pepperoni pizza at Papa Murphy’s on Tax Day or get a family size pizza for $2 more. No coupon is necessary to get this deal (as far as I could tell). Plus, get Papa Murphy’s Rebate Bucks for each dollar you spend while supplies last. (Anyone know what Rebate Bucks are?)

    I stock up on the family size at this price and have them double wrap the pizzas that I plan to freeze. If you have a small family you can cut them in half before freezing. If time I thaw a bit before cooking them but if not it works just as well.

      Rebate Bucks are $1 off coupons. Last year, you could use up to 3 Rebate Bucks per pizza. So $3 off one pizza.

      I don't remember if you can only use them on regular price items or if they work on sale prices as well. Anyone?

      In my experience, I received enough $3 off Family size pizza coupons from just buying pizza at Papa Murphy's to more than cover our pizza consumption. But if you don't like to do the 5 min. survey to get the code for the coupon, this is a good alternative.

    I just got an email from Papa John's saying I get 15 free papa points good through tax day. I had 10 points already so it means I get a free pizza, but must use before the 17th April. :)

    This is great… I am compiling my own list and planning to post tomorrow— I am linking and giving credit to your site too — we have a lot of the same deals and then I added some for the Denver area too. Red Robin has a a free kids meal through April 15 for each adult meal purchased… a coupon is needed. Thanks and check out my site- it should post tonight or tomorrow. HAPPY TAX DAY!

    The Famous Dave's on Hwy 7 in Minnetonka is having $10.40 deal of $30 now through April 18th. We signed up to get their P.I.G. deals on their website and were emailed a coupon. We went earlier this week and they gave us a paper coupon too that we can use as many times as we want until the 18th! Not sure if we need to eat it every day but we love our Famous Daves!

  5. Judy says

    Freeziac Maple Grove (new location) has free yogurt w/ a $2 donation to CROSS today from 5p-7p. Dunno if that counts as a freebie or not. =) You have to say "Grand Opening" at checkout!

  6. Drew says

    Thanks for the heads up on that. I didn't get the Papa Johns email, but when I checked my account the bonus points were there!

    Fyi, here is something I found for using the points-

    Code 25PAPA will get a large 3-topping for 25 points

    Code PJMPG will get a larget 1 topping for 10 points
