Graduation season is underway, and Father’s Day is a few days away — this Sunday, June 16.

Fortunately, some major dining establishments are offering bonus gift cards to patrons who purchase a card at the regular price, as we detail below.

Remember, there is no rule stating you must gift these cards to others. If you enjoy a particular restaurant, buy yourself a gift card to use at a later date — and pocket the bonus card, too. It’s a savvy savings trick we cite in “9 Easy Ways to Save up to 50% on Your Next Restaurant Meal.”

No matter who you buy a gift card for, though, don’t delay in taking advantage of these freebies. Many end shortly after Father’s Day.
