Still looking for that perfect Father's Day gift? Some online daily deals and specials might do the trick.
Is the dad in question an outdoors kind of guy? You can treat him to a guided rafting expedition down the Lower New River, in West Virginia, along with two nights of camping, and all the food and beverages he needs, for just $77. You need to purchase the package by Wednesday, but it can be any time through August 30th.
Restaurant.com is also offering a Father's Day deal. Apply the promo code FATHER to your order and get 70% off the price of a restaurant gift certificate (to many local restaurants) which is already discounted. You will also get a free $10 gift certificate to Lobster Gram, which you can use toward a purchase of Live Maine Lobster, or other seafood, meat, and dessert delicacies, delivered to your door. This deal is good through Sunday, June 20th. One thing to note about restaurant.com gift certificates: there is almost always a minimum purchase necessary. So if you buy a $25 gift certificate for $3, there may be a minimum purchase of $35. So that means you're actually paying $13 for a $35 order. It's still a great deal but you should be aware of this restriction so you don't end up washing dishes.
It may not be obvious on the website how to get the discount, and how to get the Lobster Gram gift certificate, so here are some step-by-step directions.
- Click on Restaurant.com.
- Search by city, zip code, or restaurant for the restaurants you want and add them to your cart.
- Type FATHER in the promo code box. You'll see the prices go down now to reflect the 70% discount.
- Complete your purchase.
- On the confirmation screen or the confirmation email, click on the Lobster Gram logo. There will also be a Lobster Gram promo code on the confirmation screen and email, and you will use that when your order.
This dining special from LivingSocial has to be purchased today (Monday, June 14th) but you have until December 14th to use it. Take Dad to one of the most loved restaurants in Charlotte, for half price. Get a $40 gift certificate to Cajun Queen for $20. Unlike the restaurant.com gift certificates, there is no minimum purchase amount necessary.
