This week you'll find some freebies, music downloads and some terrific travel deals. Remember if you spot a deal send me an e-mail. Enjoy!

Free beauty in a bottle

Estee Lauder is offering a ten day supply of Advanced Night Repair Eye or Face Serum this Thursday, July 22nd between 5 and 9pm. The offer is good while supplies last. You can go here to find a location near you.

Free admission to the Wildflower Center

Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is having a free admission day Sunday, July 25th. It’s part of Lady Bird Johnson tribute day. The center is extending the hours from 9am to 5pm that day so you can enjoy the day with your family. This is also a way to honor Lady Bird Johnson. They will have some of her mementos on display including one of her couture dresses and from noon to 3pm a sculptor will be creating a clay portrait of her on site. Kids can create wildflower seed packets to take home and plant. Thanks to Barbra for the tip. 

Kids eat free

Ikea is having a few food specials. Through Friday, July 23rd buy one combo, get one free. Then over the weekend your kids eat free (July 23rd through July 25th).

Share a deal with a friend

Living Social.com is partnering with Visa to sweeten some of the deals already being offered on the site. When the Visa Deal of the Day is on, you can get a deal for a friend. So today for example, buy the Chaparral Ice Center deal with your Visa card and get another deal free for a friend. Thanks Bennett for the tip.

Restaurant Deals

Restaurant.com is offering 70 percent off gift certificates through Thursday, July 22nd. Just use the code word TASTY and the $25 certificates that normally sell for $10 can be purchased for $3. You’ll find lots of new restaurants, but make sure you read the fine print because there can be limitations on when and what items you can use them.

Travel Deals

  • Air Tran is having a big sale but you’ve got to book by Thursday, July 22nd. You’ll find airfare for as little as $49 one way. The airline doesn’t fly out of Austin, but you’ll still find some pretty good deals out of Dallas and San Antonio.
  • Southwest Airlines is offering the same $49 one way deals. You’ve got to purchase by August 5th and the deals are good for travel from September 7th through December 14th but they don’t include Thanksgiving Day.
  • There have been some amazing airfare deals from Austin to Denver lately. Airfarewatchdog.com has the latest deal -- round trip airfare on Frontier for $98. The savings are good for travel from September 7th through January 5, 2011.
