$10 off Mamma Mia | 50% off Thrashers tickets | Save 60% @ Raging Burrito | Save $60 on tax prep

$10 off tickets to Mamma Mia!

You’ve likely seen the movie, but if you haven’t seen the musical, “Mamma Mia!” you’re likely to enjoy it. Broadway Across America is bringing it to the Fox Theatre and tickets to performances on three select days are $10 off through Travelzoo.com. The musical, set in a Greek island paradise, tells the funny and sometimes heartbreaking story of a bride-to-be who searches for her father, bringing three potential candidates from her mother’s past to the wedding. The discounted ticket prices apply to the 8 p.m. shows on Feb. 9 and Feb. 10, and the 6:30 p.m. show on Feb. 14. The deal tickets are $30 and $45. To purchase the tickets at $10 off, use TZOO as the promotion code and click here.

Save 50% on Thrashers tickets

I made the mistake last week of writing that the Thrashers were leading the Southeast division. Thankfully, an Atlanta sports fan pointed out that they were in fact well behind the Washington Capitals. While the Thrashers are in the playoff race, but still have plenty of work to do to secure any postseason action. In short, they could use your help, which may be one reason why you can now get select 200 and 300 Lower Level seats for the Feb. 2 game against the Tampa Bay Lightning at Philips Arena for 50 percent off. Ticket prices range from $16 to $39 (regularly-priced $32 to $78).

Free Book Reading and Save 60% at Raging Burrito and Taco

You may have seen this in today’s Living section of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Author Michael Selden is discussing his new book, “Mark Twain: Man in White, The Grand Adventure of His Final Years” at 7:15 p.m. today at the Decatur Library. The event is free. The Decatur Library is located at 215 Sycamore St., in Decatur.

While you’re in the area, you might go ahead and use this deal I found on Mydailythread.com. You can purchase a deal voucher there worth $25 for only $10 to use at Raging Burrito and Taco, nearby at 141 Sycamore St. The bonus with this deal is that if 100 people make the purchase, you get a free bottle of the restaurant’s house hot sauce on your return visit.

Save Big With Tax Preparation Deal

I’m including this deal today only because it’s that time of the year: tax time. Halfoffdepot.com has a good offer today for tax preparations. Pay $40 for a complete 1040EZ Tax Preparation with E-file from Wilson Financial and Tax Consultants. This is a $100 value. The certificate can also be used toward the preparation fee of a 1040 tax return. It must be purchased by 10 a.m., Jan. 28, and can be used through Dec. 20. Even better: the certificate can be printed out and used immediately.

No McDonald’s Deal

Yesterday I wrote about a deal for a free Cafe’ Mocha on Wednesday mornings at McDonald’s. Well, it appears the deal is good almost everywhere — except Metro Atlanta. While I did point out it only worked at participating locations, my contact at McDonald’s says it’s a no-go here in our market. That’s a bummer because we like freebies. I did learn that if you send your mailing address to McDonaldsinATL@gmail.com, they’ll send you a coupon in the mail for a free coffee or free hot chocolate. And as of Jan. 15, McDonald’s does have free Wi-Fil. Sorry for the inconvenience if you went looking for the deal.

The coupon for a free Einstein Bagel and Shmear is still on, though, and can be used Feb. 1-7.

Hi Lloyd-
Here are 3 ways you can save on tickets to see the Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre:

(1) Save 25% on tickets to see the Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre at the Fox Theatre on Thursday,
February 19 ONLY. You can order tickets online or at the box office, just use promo code
“FAMILY” to get the deal. I believe this deal is still valid.

(2) If you’re a student, you can get $10 STUDENT TICKETS
Limit 2 tickets per valid student ID.
Must be purchased at Fox Theatre box office before 5:30pm on Feb 18.

(3) For the SATURDAY, FEB 20 show at 2:00 PM – Buy one full-price ticket, get a second at 50%
off. Plus you’ll get to dnjoy a post-performance Q&A session with the dancers (free to all
matinee ticketholders). I believe you can order these tickets online or at the box office.

Hope this helps!

And Rana… thanks for the update about McDonalds. I wonder if your contact w/ mickey d’s knows if this offer is good in Charleston, SC? just thought I’d ask. :)

@Daily Helper. Thanks for the comment. Lloyd, I hope that helps. I have written about the buy one, get on 50% off.

[...] This isn’t a significant savings, but every little bit helps. Using promo code “Dress” when purchasing your tickets to see the musical, “Mamma Mia” at the Fox Theatre, you save $5 per ticket. That amount will be matched and donated to Dress for Success. The musical plays at the Fox Feb. 9-14, and the discounted ticket is available for select performances. Remember you can also save $10 on tickets to shows on Feb. 9 and 10, and Feb. 14, through Travelzoo.com. Read the details of that deal here, as it applies to select seats. [...]
