I love my dad! No matter what goes on in my life, he almost always had the right word (or Bible verse) to say. He has shown me how a woman should be treated, and has been a devoted and loving husband to my lovely mom for the past 28 years. This Father’s Day, you probably want to do something special for that dad or dad-figure in your life. So, whether you’ve decided to stay at home, or you want to go around taking dad on an adventure, you can make the day yummy (and money saving) with some of these freebies:
~ For the third year in row, Spaghetti Warehouse offers free spaghetti or lasagna entrees (with soup and salad) to dads who bring in downloaded coupons from the chain’s website on Father’s Day. Last year, the 16-unit chain handed out 6,000 free entrees, says marketing director Kathy Wan.
~ Shoney’s is giving dads its best-selling dessert, Hot Fudge Cake, with entrée purchases. “This day is about dads, not us,” says CEO David Davoudpour. “We’d either sell thousands of give away thousands. We decided to do the right thing for dads on their special day.”
~ Dads get free, six-ounce cups — and at some stores, cones — of TCBY frozen yogurt. Many associate frozen yogurt more with female customers, so TCBY is reaching out to dads on Father’s Day, says Dustin Finkel, senior director at Famous Brands, which owns TCBY.
~ For dads who savor cannoli — the pastry dessert filled with sweet cream –Buca di Beppo, the Italian restaurant chain, will be handing them out, free, to dads with special, downloaded coupons. The promo’s name: Holy Free Cannoli.
~ Treat your dad to a night at the movies with a free DVD rental from a Redbox kiosk at Kroger. Use the code KROGERDVD.
~ Take advantage of a rare coupon good for $5 off a $10 purchase at Hallmark to buy cards for dads and grandpas in your life. Go to Hallmark.com/offers to print your coupon. It’s valid through June 16 at Hallmark stores, including those in the Triangle.
~ Photos are always a thoughtful gift so why not take Walgreens up on its offer of a free 8×10 photo collage for Dad. Go to Walgreens.com/photo, load your photos and design your collage. Use the code DADCOLLAGE, and be sure to select in-store pick-up.
~ Dad will receive a free 99 cent breakfast plate and a cup of coffee at participating IKEA’s Restaurants and Cafes from when the doors open until 11:00 a.m. on Father’s Day.
~ Stop by BJs on June 15 – 16, 2013, and dad will receive a FREE, Limited Edition Father’s Day Pint Glass, while supplies last! Cheers!
