This week you'll find free food, some great deal sites and more. Enjoy!

Daily Wish Deals

American Express launched its Daily Wish site again. Here’s how it works:

  • Sign up for Daily Wish with any American Express Card. Click "Sign Up for Daily Wish" to begin.
  • Every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, a new collection of offers goes on sale.
  • On the sale day, the sale time is revealed and a countdown begins, letting you know the exact second the sale starts.
  • Click on the "I Want It" button as soon as a sale starts — if you're one of the first, you'll get the opportunity to buy. When you confirm you want to go ahead with the purchase, we'll connect you to the partner, and you're all set!

Next Thursday, May 20th you can get a half price Ford Fusion.

Kids Eat Free

Kids under 12 can receive up to three kid-sized items for free at your participating IKEA from May 14th though 16th.  No adult purchase is necessary. Click here for a location near you.

Austin Deals

  • Austin’s Convention and Visitors Bureau now offers special deals for anyone who signs up to be an Austin Insider. You’ll find discounts on everything from food, to tours to limousines (thought that one may come in handy with all the upcoming proms, graduations and weddings).
  • Then check out the 50 percent off deals we always have on our own web site. You’ll find everything from deals on fitness to food.
  • And check out the deals offered each week on Go Local Austin. If you buy a Go Local card you can get discounts at hundreds of Austin businesses. And each week they feature new deals. Here’s a sampling of this week’s deals: West Lake Mail – Get 15 percent off and a free “vintage” Go Local Card which is running a closer expiration date when you ship. It is located at 3736 Bee Cave near TX Honey Ham and Walgreens.Body Business Health Club and Spa – First time clients get 3 personal training or pilates sessions for $99 (valued up to $210). Ask for member services to get started.

Restaurant Deals

Restaurant.com is offering 80 percent off through May 13th. Just use the code ENJOY before you check out. That means the $25 gift certificates which usually sell for $10 can be purchased for only $2.

Free ice cream

(Sorry, this is not for everyone in our viewing area.) Haagen-Dazs is celebrating 50 years of ice cream with a free flavor day. From 4 to 8pm next Tuesday, May 18th just come into any Haagen-Dazs Shop across the country and say “Happy Birthday” and you’ll get a free scoop of one of three original flavors, chocolate, coffee or vanilla. Unfortunately there are no locations here in Austin, but there are lots of folks who read this blog where there are locations like Dallas, San Antonio, and places in North Carolina and Minnesota.

To find a location near you go here.

Oprah had her perform yesterday on her show and if you haven’t heard Charice’s amazing voice, here’s your chance. You can download her “In this Song” free.
