The Dallas Opera is running ‘Don Pasquale’ tomorrow night (Feb. 27) and then again from March 5-7. Right now, you can get 20 percent off your tickets when you buy tickets online and enter the promo code DMNOnline. This code is good on all seats, even the cheapest ones, so you can get in for as little as $24. (Or as much as $360, if you want to get all fancy and sit in the box seats.)
The Dallas Opera’s website calls Don Pasquale a “sly and sophisticated comedy.” Sounds like fun! All performances are at the Winspear Opera House.
Feel like a movie this weekend? Hit your nearest Blockbuster Express machine and get a free night’s rental with the code GOLIVE. This code expires March 4. The previous code I told you about, GT9SA, is still good through Feb. 28, as is the BOGO code FEBRUARY.
For more about Blockbuster Express, see my previous post.
World Market just released a coupon for $10 off a $30 purchase. This coupon is good through March 14. It’s valid on everything except alcoholic beverages and gift cards.
Sign up for World Market’s e-mail list and get a 10% off coupon e-mailed to you. (No, you can’t use this coupon with the $10 off $30. Aww!)
Thanks, My Dallas Mommy!
There’s nothing I like more in the morning than a good cup of coffee and something sweet. And now, Cinnabon has met my need for good food AND frugality with valuable coupons for cinnamon rolls and coffee. There’s a coupon to save $1 off a large Mochallatta Chill, a free coffee when you buy a Cinnabon, and more.
Cinnabon can be found inside several Schlotzsky’s locations in Fort Worth; no telling if they will take these coupons, since they are from Cinnabon corporate, so call and ask first. You can find your store at Cinnabon.com. There is an actual Cinnabon store at 6121 W. Park Blvd. in Plano.
Thanks to My Dallas Mommy for the alert!

Thanks to My Dallas Mommy for the heads up on the Veggie Tales event.
