At the end of the day is either literally talking about the end of the day (for example, 'We had our dinner at the end of the day'), or a phrase used to say taking everything into consideration (for example, 'At the end of the day, we tried our hardest but failed to win').

By the end of the day is commonly used with a command such as 'Get this report done by the end of the day'. It could also be used like 'He was worn out by the end of the day'.

    By the end of the day is any time between now and the end of the day (before midnight for a full 24h day, or before 5pm if talking about a stereotypical working day).
