Post Offices Open Late/Until Midnight on Tax Day?

Is your local Post Office open late on Tax Day? Does the Post Office offer extended hours and/or a midnight pickup on Tax Day? Don’t count on it!

Gone are the days when workers stood outside Post Offices with mail sacks, collecting last-minute tax returns up to the 12:00AM midnight Tax Day deadline. This year, many Post Offices have normal hours of operation.

According to the IRS, most taxpayers now file their returns electronically. So, there isn’t nearly as big of a need for Post Offices to stay open late on Tax Day as there used to be. Factor in the recent budget-cutting measures which are closing locations and cutting hours and you can understand why most Post Offices are no longer open late or until midnight on Tax Day.

Best advice? File your tax return electronically. If that’s not possible, be sure to get to the Post Office during their regular business hours. If all else fails and you’re not going to make it by closing time, search online for a Post Office that has extended hours. Some Post Offices are still open late on Tax Day, but that number drops every year.

Be sure not to miss that deadline! When you have finished and filed your taxes, be sure to take advantage of the Tax Day freebies and special deals being offered by stores and restaurants. You’ll find them all right here on CheapoLife.com.

What’s Open & Closed on Easter Sunday

Wondering what is open and what is closed on Easter Sunday? You’re not alone! Used to be, almost everything besides churches, convenience stores, and gas stations was closed on Easter. Today, some businesses are open while others remain closed for the holiday. Here’s a quick list of what is open and closed:

Because Easter falls on a Sunday, government offices will be closed. This includes federal, state, county, and city offices. Post Offices will be closed and mail will not be delivered. Public buildings such as libraries are likely closed as well.

Banks will be closed.

Stock markets will be closed.

Schools will be closed. This includes primary schools, high schools, colleges, and universities.

McDonald’s $1.79 Filet-O-Fish Fridays

This is what I call “Cheap Filet-O-Fish Season.” It’s that magic time of year between Fat Tuesday and Easter Sunday when McDonald’s drops the price of their Filet-O-Fish sandwiches at many locations across the U.S. I have good news and bad news for the current Lenten season. First, the bad news: I have seen fewer deals this year vs in the past. The special spring Filet-O-Fish offer is not a national promotion. Pricing and availability varies by restaurant and region. So far, there just aren’t as many discounted deals this year as there used to be. Hopefully, this will change as we get closer to Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

The GOOD news is that Micky D’s in southern California is repeating their $1.79 Filet-O-Fish Fridays. This is the same price as last year and qualifies as one of the best fish sandwich deals available. The catch is that it’s ONLY available for 7 Fridays and ONLY at select locations. These are the dates:

– Friday, February 12, 2016
– Friday, February 19, 2016
– Friday, February 26, 2016
– Friday, March 4, 2016
– Friday, March 11, 2016
– Friday, March 18, 2016
– Friday, March 25, 2016

Most of the Los Angeles metro area restaurants are honoring this promotion. If one fish sandwich isn’t enough but two are too much, you can add an extra fish patty for just $1.00. Don’t miss $1.79 Filet-O-Fish Fridays, available through Good Friday 2016 at participating southern California McDonald’s restaurants.

McDonald’s Shamrock Shake Price & Locations

Four years ago, McDonald’s began offering their legendary Shamrock Shake at all 14,000 restaurants in the U.S. The Shamrock Shake special has been available on and around St. Patrick’s Day since 1970, but only in certain markets and at specific locations.

How long does McDonald’s sell Shamrock Shakes? For 2016, the minty-green delights will be available through the second half of March. Actual sale dates vary by market. How much does a Shamrock Shake cost? That also varies by region and location. A common promotional price seems to be $1.99 for the small (12 ounce) size. Medium and large Shamrock Shakes will cost more, of course.

As you probably know, all McDonald’s shakes are now served “McCafe style” in clear plastic cups instead of the paper cups used previously. All shakes are also now topped with whipped cream and a cherry, making them look more like a dessert. St. Patrick’s Day only comes once a year, so go ahead and enjoy a McDonald’s Shamrock Shake while they last!
