Food savings
A reminder that Denny's is giving away free breakfast sandwich's today through 2pm. All you have to do is buy a grand slam and you get the sandwich free. Go here to find the Denny's nearest you.

Dream Dinners is an "assemble and freeze" business where guests make one month's worth of dinners to take home and cook. Kristine e-mailed me to tell me that during the month of April, all three Austin area Dream Dinners are offering $50 worth of free food.

When first time guests order $199+ worth of dinners, they will receive an additional $50 worth of dinners at no additional charge!

Here's how to get the deal:
1. Visit the website
2. Create an Account.
3. Select one of the Austin locations.
4. Select a session time.
5. Choose your dinners from April's menu.
6. Enter KVUE in the notes & submit order.
*This offer cannot be combined with any other offer, coupon or discount.

• More savings at Through April 13th if you use the coupon code "SEASON" you can save 60 percent. That means the $25 certificates that normally cost $10 will cost you just $4.

Free Sub
Quiznos recently announced their new sandwich called the Toasty Torpedo. For a limited time the company will give you a coupon for a free sandwich as long as you play their "Toast and Destroy" game. You also have to provide some personal information like your e-mail address. You'll get the coupon immediately after playing and scoring some points.

Coupons on your iPhone
Luke has sent me great tips before and this is one iPhone users will love. Coupon Sherpa is an iPhone application with in-store coupons to more than 100 merchants. All you have to do is show your iPhone at checkout and you get the discount. A barcode appears that the cashier can scan. You can save money on everything from clothing, restaurants, jewelry, sporting goods, books and more. It's possible some retailers will not accept the coupons from your phone. In that case you'll need to e-mail the coupon to yourself and print it out. So no need to worry about forgetting your coupons at home--they'll be on your phone.

Coupon Book
Those Entertainment books are always packed with savings, but if you haven't had the chance to buy one yet for this year, now's your chance to get a great deal. For a limited time the company is offering to give you a book for just $15. They originally cost $25. To find the book nearest you go here. You can find a link to the Austin book here.

American Airlines has drastically dropped prices on airfare to Hawaii. You can fly from Dallas to Hawaii direct for $511 roundtrip. You've got to book your flight by April 10th and travel by May 25th.
