Father’s Day is a week from next Sunday, June 19. If you don’t have a gift yet, we’ve got a variety of deals to choose from – plus a few great grabs for the ladies.
For something different, forget the big flat-screen and go for a projector. Dad could turn a blank wall into an even bigger screen. Or as I’ve said before, if you tack a white bed sheet up to an exterior wall of your house and add an extension cord, lawn chairs, and popcorn, you’ve got a “drive-in” theater in your own backyard.
CircuitCity.com has a ViewSonic projector for $250 less than the list price: $350 [expires 6/8], and Tiger Direct has an Acer projector for $100 less than the list price: $300 [6/8].
If not a projector, beef up dad’s flat-screen with a Sony 3D Blu-ray home theater system for $200 less than the list price, making it just $250 [6/8].
The handheld Nintendo DS Lite is on sale for $89.99 at Toys R Us in stores and online [6/11] – that’s at least $10 cheaper than Best Buy, Amazon, Target, and even Walmart are selling it for this week!
Omaha Steak’s Dad Pack is half off [expires 6/8]. That’s four top sirloins, six steak burgers, and six stuffed baked potatoes for $50 – instead of $101. Plus, they’ll toss in a free bonus gift: a 24-piece tool set, which will show up in your e-cart after you put the Dad Pack in it.
Facebook coupons: Like Seattle’s Best Coffee? “Like” them on Facebook for a free printable coupon worth $1.50 off an iced latte 4-pack [expiration unknown]. To save $1 on Yoplait smoothie and save $1 on a StarKist SeaSensations entree, “like” them, too.
Just don’t wait to print these coupons, even if you don’t plan to cash them in right away: You never know how long a Facebook coupon campaign will last, and some are limited to a certain number of total print-outs.
Clothing, shoes, and accessories
Every article of clothing is buy-one-get-one-free at Men’s Wearhouse in stores and online, and every pair of shoes is buy-one-get-one-half-off [expires 6/19]. If you order online, do so by June 14 to ensure it arrives in time for Father’s Day.
At Dickies.com, save $15 when you spend $50, $20 when you spend $75, or $30 when you spend $100 (with promo code DADGRD) [7/4].
At JCPenney stores, take $10 off a purchase of $50-plus (with printable coupon) [6/10].
And for the ladies, put Macy’s Sandal Sale on your calendar: It starts today and can save you up to 50 percent on brand-name sandals in stores and online [expiration unknown]. Don’t buy online, though. When you shop this sale in stores, you’ll save an additional 15-30 percent. If you buy one pair of sandals, they take an extra 15 percent off. Buy two pairs, take an extra 20 percent off; buy three, take an extra 30 percent off. So, you stand to save up to 80 percent all together!
Health and beauty
Items in Perfumania.com’s Father’s Day sale are buy-one-get-one-half-off, ship for free if you spent $25-plus, and come with three free samples [expires 6/20].
Ladies, for a free full-size body care item from Bath & Body Works’ Signature Collection, just spend $10 in stores (with printable coupon) or online (with coupon code 4323) [6/9].
Paint and Penney’s
If you’re not in need of clothes, shoes, or accessories but would still love to save 20 percent at JCPenney, don’t forget the printable coupon mentioned above is good store-wide.
Lastly, for a free pint of Benjamin Moore paint, “like” them on Facebook and receive a free printable coupon for the paint [expires 6/30].
