This week you will find all kinds of terrific family savings, Valentine's Day specials and Super Bowl savings as well. Thanks for all the tips. Enjoy! 

Today deal

Had a good friend who went to the musical Wicked this weekend and loved it. If you're a fan, this is a great chance to engage with actual cast members. The University of Texas College of Fine Arts is hosting a Brown Bag Community Lunch featuring two actors from the hit musical. Today, February 1,  join other Wicked enthusiasts for lunch and conversation with Catherine Charlebois, who plays Nessarose, and Dan Pacheco, who plays Boq. The Brown Bag Community Lunch is hosted at the Jewish Community Center at 7300 Hart Lane, Austin, TX 78731 from 12 - 1 p.m. The event is free, but attendees should bring their own vegetarian or dairy lunch. For more information, call the PAC ticket office at 471-1444 or visit the College of Fine Arts. Thanks Heidi at Free Fun in Austin.com for the tip.

Museum Savings

I’ve written about the Bank of America Museums on Us program before. This is a reminder that this is the weekend you can take advantage of free admission if you have a Bank of America card or account. No Austin museums take part, but there are several across the state that do take part. See the full list of participating museums here.

Movie deals

Java Austin off Barton Springs Road continues its movie deals this Friday, February 3, 2012, Pretty Woman will show at 8 p.m.  Then next Tuesday, February 7th they’ll show Enchanted. And remember kids eat free after 3pm on Tuesday with an adult meal purchase.

Food deal

Ikea in Round Rock is offering some great food savings each day of the week. Mondays you get free breakfast until 11am. Tuesdays kids eat free. The rest of the week there are some pretty good savings.

Like Burger King on Facebook and get free onion rings this weekend, February 4th and 5th. This is good while supplies last.

Car Seat Safety Checks

Scott & White and Texans in Motion are hosting a bunch of car seat safety checks again this month across Central Texas. You will need to register ahead of time, but these checks are invaluable. Find a location near you here.
