This week you’ll find deals on food, tax help and music. Thanks to all of those who e-mailed me tips. Remember I'm always looking for good deals to feature, especially those with local businesses so send me an e-mail if you spot a deal so I can share it. Enjoy!

Free Pretzel

Auntie Annie's is giving away free pretzels this Saturday, February 20th from 10am to 3 pm. You can choose between a free original or a free Cinnamon Sugar one. Limit one per person. Thanks to Samantha for letting me know!

Half Price Dinner

Mama Fu’s is celebrating the Lunar New Year and the Year of the Tiger by offering half priced entrees to people who dine in from now until Thursday, February 18th.

Free Tax Help

AARP offers free tax help to seniors with low and moderate incomes. You can find a tax-aide site near you here.

Remember the IRS also offers free tax filing help. To find out if you’re eligible and to find a center near you go here.


Free single of the week

Each week iTunes puts out a free single of the week. The freebies start every Tuesday and are usually accompanied by a really good price on the featured artists’ album. Tyler tells me you can get them to e-mail it to you each week so you don't have to try to remember.

Free pancakes

IHOP is giving away a free short stack of pancakes to celebrate National Pancake day on February 23rd. All they ask of you is to give a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network. This promotion has been going on since 2006 and the goal this year is to tip the donation scale over $5 million for five years. You can also enter a contest to win free pancakes for a year. All you have to do is tell about a good deed you or someone you know did in 2009.

Free Portraits

Target has a bunch of coupons for portraits. They expire March 1st. Thanks Susan for the tip!

Appliance Sale

Save 25% on energy star appliances at Sears. Remember the Texas Energy Star Tax Rebates will only apply to purchases between April 16th through the 25th. So it may be worth it to wait. Here's a detailed list of the rebates that will be available.


Francesca’s is having a 20 percent off sale for many items online. The Texas based women’s clothing and accessory shop has several locations across the state as well.

Hannah D’s a locally owned costume jewelry shop is offering 25 percent off one jewelry item of your choice through Thursday, February 18th.

And you can find additional coupons here.

Airfare Deals

Airfarewatchdog.com has posted some pretty good deals from Austin this week. If you haven’t checked out this site it’s a great place to go to find unadvertised air fare deals.

Southwest Airlines has some pretty good deals right now. You’ll find airfare for as little as $59 to some places. You can travel from Austin to Denver for as little as $87 one way. You’ve got to book by Thursday, February 18th and it’s good for travel through May 25th.

Then check out the cool scavenger hunt Southwest has put up to highlight some of the changes to the website. If you find the clues you get entered into a contest to win a trip for two anywhere Southwest flies.
