Mom’s get a free cup or cone of frozen yogurt on Mother’s Day at TCBY stores this Sunday, May 9th. This is the third year TCBY has done this.

And here are some other TCBY deals to keep in mind. Wednesday’s they offer 99 cent waffle cones and everyday from 5 to 6pm you can enjoy half price smoothies.

Prime Outlet Savings
Still need to buy a gift for your mom, print out a free coupon book to use at the Prime Outlets before you go shopping.
Restaurant.com is offering 70 percent off certificates through Sunday, May 9th. All you have to do is use the code MOM before you check out to get the savings. That means a $25 gift certificate which normally sells for $10 will only cost you $3. Now you really have no excuse not to give your mom or your wife a night off.
Make a donation in honor of your mother
This is more of a deal to help other women afford costly breast cancer screenings and treatments. You know how close this cause is to my heart and this is a great way to do something good in honor of your mom. It’s called MammoMomma for Mother’s Day.
You can visit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure page and make one of the following donations:
- Take the $125 Challenge and buy a mammogram for a woman
- Donate $50 for gas vouchers to 10 patients for screening appointments
- Donate any amount to help fund screening or diagnostic services in Austin’s five-county region
After you make your donation, you can download a card to send to your loved one and let them know they were honored in this special way.
More local Austin deal sites
Localiter -- This site started up here in Austin during this year’s SXSW festival. The goal was to focus on local Austin businesses. It works like Groupon in that each day they feature a different deal. They feature everything from food deals to golf lessons to theater passes plus they put together some really cute videos.
Free Skin Cancer Screenings
Good timing on this next deal. There are two free skin cancer screenings taking place this weekend in Westlake. They happen Saturday, May 8th from 10am to 1pm and it’s for walk-ins only.
