There’s no better way to show Dad you care than by buying him stuff, and this June 19th it’s expected you do just that. Luckily, there are a few really good deals happening this weekend to make the special day a little easier on your budget, but even if you aren’t celebrating Father’s Day 2011, you can still take advantage of the following offers for yourself.
Free T-Mobile Data Plan for One Year
Granted, it’s the kids who are more likely to get excited about this deal than Dad, but for the e-mailing, YouTube-watching, Facebooking father, the gift of a cheaper cell phone bill is a great one.
As a part of the Father’s Day 2011 Sale, T-Mobile is offering a year of free data. You can only get this deal on June 18, 2011, and you must commit to an 18-month contract. Customers who purchase a qualifying talk, text and data plan will get 12 months of free data for the $10 per month 200MB plan–customers who want larger data packages will still get $10 knocked off each month and pay the difference. There are additional requirements that must be met by existing customers, so make sure you understand them fully before signing up.
Newegg.com Semi-Annual Sale
Guys love gadgets and Newegg.com is the mecca of all things tech. Their semi-annual sale is going on right now, so it’s a great opportunity to get Dad a new laptop or digital camera. Specials include:
- Today Only: Take 10% off all Corsair laptop, desktop and USB flash memory
- Next 72 Hours: 20% off all Rosewill toner cartridges and 10% off all Netgear Smart Switches
There are countless other limited-time sales, but restrictions apply so visit the site to learn more.
Free Breakfast at IKEA
Nothing says “I love you” like a hot meal from a Swedish furniture store, right? Apparently, IKEA has a restaurant and they’re offering a free breakfast for dads who come in this Sunday before 11 am. The breakfast includes scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon and a cup of coffee. Not bad.
Of course, celebrating Father’s Day isn’t really about how much money you spend, but simply expressing you appreciation for your dad and spending the day together. That doesn’t mean you can’t get him something nice, though, especially if you can save money in the process.
