This week you'll find several freebies and some great family savings. Enjoy!

Free coffee

Visit Barnes & Noble this weekend and you may score a free cup of coffee. All you have to do is let a bookseller give you a guided tour of the Nook Color at your local store this Saturday, February 26th and  get a free cup of coffee.

Book sale

Just a reminder since the three Borders books locations in Austin are closing they are marking everything 20 to 40 percent off. The stores all close in April.

Free pancakes

It’s National Pancake Day Tuesday, March 1st. So from 7am to 10pm that day IHOP is teaming up with Shriners Hospitals to offer a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes. In return you are asked to leave a little something behind for Shriners Hospitals. IHOP is hoping to raise $2.3 million dollars nationwide. This deal is good nationwide so to find an IHOP near you go here. Thanks Terry for the tip!

Chipotle is partnering up with the Texas Stars Monday, February 28th. All restaurants in the Austin area will give the first 100 customers who show up starting at 5pm and who purchase a burrito, bowl, order of tacos or salad, a buy one get one free ticket voucher for the Texas Stars hockey game on March 1st.
