Free Personalized Message from Santa

Here’s a way for you to get Santa to send a personalized video message to your child. It’s really cool. You supply your child’s first name and the town where they’ll be for Christmas and Santa does the rest. My friend Joyce did this for her children and they loved it. Here's a look at one of the finished videos. So cute!

Free online movie rental

Amazon.com offers video on demand. It is giving away a free online movie rental. Go to this site and use the code AVODGIFT. You must use the code by January 3rd.

Free Coffee Sample

Dunkin’ Donuts has done this before and I’ve actually gotten free coffee samples from them before. This time they are offering a free sample of the New Dunkin’ Dark or Original Blend coffee. Just go here, fill out the information and your sample should be sent in about six to eight weeks.



Free Breakfast


IKEA is at it again—giving away free breakfast until 11am starting Saturday, December 26th through Sunday, January 3rd. This is not valid at the IKEA in Houston or any IKEA Direct.

Free Holiday Music Downloads

It’s not too late to take advantage of Amazon.com’s 25 days of free music. Each day in December a new free song is revealed, but you can also download all the music from the day’s you’ve missed.

You can find more free music downloads here.

Free Starbucks Music Sampler

Starbucks is doing what so many other businesses are doing—turning to social networking. So if you become a Starbucks fan on Facebook you can download a 20 song Starbucks sampler.

Half off Discounts to Austin businesses

KVUE has a terrific section on our web site where you can score half price discounts at about ten different Austin businesses. The deals constantly change so be sure to check this out regularly. This week you’ll find discounts on massages, a tutoring center even a handyman.

Travel Deals

  • You’ll still find some end of the year travel deals on Southwest Airlines. You have to book by December 28th and travel by January 5th. If you’re thinking more about a spring or summer vacation check out the terrific airfare they are offering to Panama City, FL since that service just started. Tickets from Austin to there are as low as $117 one way. You must travel between May 23rd and August 13th.
  • American Airlines has some pretty good prices on flights to Mexico. You’ve got to book by December 31st and travel between February 11th and April 12th.
