This week you’ll find great deals on Austin entertainment, a magazine deal worth checking out and a new web site that will notify you of price drops. Enjoy!

And remember if you spot a good deal you think I should mention, send me an e-mail.

Discount Austin entertainment tickets

For anyone who loves going to the theater, listening to music and supporting the Austin arts community here’s your chance to do it and save some money in the process. The Greater Austin Creative Alliance offers up discounts to specific shows each week. You can find the list of ticket specials here.

While you’re saving money you can help someone you know enjoy some of the fun Austin has to offer. GifTix is a way to give a $25 gift certificate that anyone can use at 50 Austin area theater, music, dance and film organizations. You do have to pay an additional $5 fee if you order online. However, if you order over the phone at 512 474-TIXS(8497) the fee is reduced.

Restaurant savings

Restaurant.com is offering 70 percent off savings through Thursday, December 17th. Just use the code SNOW before  you check out and the $25 restaurant gift certificates that normally sell for $10 will cost you just $3.

New Price drop notification site

This new web site lets you plug in the web address of a product you’re interested in buying, then fill in your e-mail address and if the price drops you’ll get an e-mail.

Magazine Deals

This week only—in fact only through Saturday—Amazon.com is dropping the price of a year’s subscription to “O, the Oprah Magazine” to just $5.

Free Music Downloads

Don't foget--Amazon is offering a new free music download each day in December. They call it 25 days of free Christmas music downloads.

Travel Deals

Airfare watchdog.com has some pretty good deals on airfare. Most are for travel after the New Year.

• If you’re still hoping to get home for the holidays check out the Southwest Airlines deals. They’re pretty pricey, but still seats to be had before next week. One of the cheapest from Austin is a one way ticket to Denver for $123. You’ve got to purchase by December 21st and travel by January 5th. You’ll find even better deals if you wait to travel after January 4th, but again you’ve got to book these tickets by Monday, December 21st.

AirTran is having an airfare sale. Some tickets are selling as low as $39 one way. The best deal around here is San Antonio to Ft. Lauderdale for $64 one way. You’ve got to book your tickets by December 17th and the deals are good for travel from December 31st through March 10th.
