Online shopping can be especially handy for Father’s Day gifts.

While you could wander the mall for hours and still not be sure what to buy Dad this year, the internet puts a wealth of cool gift ideas at your fingertips in an instant. Plus, when you shop online, you can save even more by using a cash-back portal.

To save you even more time, we’ve rounded up some of the best deals on Father’s Day gift options that we’ve seen so far this year. You’ll find options for most any type of dad:

Avid readers

Texture is currently offering up to $25 off gift plans. Texture is an app that offers unlimited access to more than 200 magazines — including back issues — that can be read on tablets and smartphones for a flat fee. Just to name a few, available magazine titles include Car & Driver, Consumer Reports, ESPN, Forbes, National Geographic, People, Popular Science, Reader’s Digest, Time, Travel & Leisure and Wired.

The $50 gift option buys Dad six months of access to Texture and saves you $10. The $95 gift option buys Dad a year of access and saves you $25. Just make sure the gift recipient has an Android or Apple mobile device or an Amazon Fire tablet.

Interested in Texture for yourself? A free 14-day trial is available.

Techies

As of Friday morning, Amazon is offering a discount on the Amazon Echo smart speaker, which can do everything from play your favorite music to order household staples you’ve run out of — all at the sound of your voice. If you buy two Echo devices — perhaps you’ve been wanting one yourself or know another gift recipient who’d love one — you save $80 in total. That amounts to about 22 percent off.

This is described as a “limited-time offer,” though, so don’t wait to take advantage of it if you’re interested. Amazon doesn’t specify when the offer ends.

Just note the fine print before ordering to ensure you get the $80 off:

  1. Add two Amazon Echo devices of the same or different colors to your order by selecting “2” in the “Qty” dropdown on the product information page when adding to your Shopping Cart.
  2. Add Promo Code: ECHO2PACK at checkout and a discount in the amount of $80 will be allocated proportionally to both Amazon Echo devices in your Shopping Cart.

Gift card aficionados

Amazon is also currently offering a steal of a deal on several gift cards. If you buy a $50 gift card to any of the following father-friendly retailers or eateries, you’ll save $10. So you’ll effectively pay $40 for a brand-new gift card worth $50.

These gift cards will be delivered to the recipient by email. Again, don’t wait to take advantage of this limited-time, while-supplies-last steal because Amazon doesn’t specify when it ends.

Another place to score discounted new gift cards any time of year — no need to wait for a special — is at wholesale clubs, both in clubs and on their websites. Take Sam’s Club, for example. On its website, you’ll find discounted new gift cards for restaurants, movie theaters and a variety of other categories.

Well-groomed (or well-traveled) guys

Target has released a special beauty box for Father’s Day. You’ll pay just $7 for a box that contains $24.23 worth of stuff perfect for dads who enjoy primping or traveling with personal care products that are the right size to be TSA-friendly.

Here’s what it comes with:

  • NIVEA Men Creme, 1 ounce
  • Olivina Men All-in-One Body Wash, 2 ounce
  • Schick Hydro 5 Men’s Razor, 1 razor
  • Dove Men+Care Elements Deodorant, 1.7 ounce
  • Colgate Optic White Radiant Toothpaste, 0.75 ounce
  • Yes To Natural Man Cleansing Wipes, 10 wipes
  • Axe Adrenaline Cool Charge Body Wash, 1 ounce

This is a steal, folks. The razor alone is worth $9.

Men of action

If Dad would rather have a memorable experience than a tangible gift, check out Groupon’s Father’s Day gift page — specifically the “Things To Do” section.

You’ll also find cool tangible gift ideas on Groupon, including food and drink gifts, sports gifts and home and car gifts.
