The Good Life For Less: Deals For Dads

What do you get the guy who has everything? Many of you may be thinking that this Father’s Day. If you are like me, you’ll try to find a thoughtful or useful gift that won’t break the bank.

There are your Dad’s Day staples: the tie, cufflinks, tools, and ever popular shaving kit (sorry dad, I know I’ve gotten you that one a few times in the past). So I want you think out of the tool box with some of these deals.

Sky Mall – A roll-up piano, a magic wand remote control or a seat from the old Yankee stadium — what can’t you find in that amazing little magazine? Anything you’re looking for is now 20 percent off with the code LSBBB.

Michaels – Looking to custom frame that photo of you and your dad? How about the special way to display your dad’s old sports awards? With these coupons you can get 50 percent off purchases, 60 percent off a custom framing, or 70 percent off two or more custom frames.

IMAX – Dad’s get in free on Father’s Day (06/19) to any of the shows playing at the Great Clips IMAX Theatre in Apple Valley with the purchase of a paid ticket. You must buy the ticket in person at the box office.

Perfumania – Give dad his own signature smell. On Tuesday (06/14) only, you can get 25 percent and free 2nd day shipping on order of $65 or more with coupon code FATHERSDAY. Plus you get 3 free samples with every order. Miss Tuesday’s deal? They also have a buy-one-get-one at 50 percent off deal. Free shipping and samples still apply.

Restaurant.comUPDATE: 70 percent off with coupon code DAD. That means a $25 gift certificate costs only $3. As always read the fine print some minimums may apply.

Omaha Steaks – Is he a meat lover? Then this may be the deal for you. Get 61 percent off and half-price shipping. They have two specialty packs for dads too!

If You Must…

OK, if you just gotta get dad tools — here are a few standout deals for the do-it-your-self guy!
