He's the NO. 1 man this Fathers's Day, and deserves a great gift. But that doesn't mean you have to break the bank to find the perfect gift for Dad.
With Father's Day falling on Sunday, June 17, 2018 anticipate great deals being touted in TV commercials, online, or in sales circulars several weeks before the big day.
Why so early? In recent years, Father's Day sales have been combined with Memorial Day sales -- and that means a two-for-one sales blowout to kick off the summer.
And it all begins with tons of money-saving offers from the big retailers with great bargains on men's clothing at Macy's, JC Penny and Target, along with traditional savings of up to 50% on power tools at stores like Lowe's and Home Depot.
Also look for sales on computer laptops, digital cameras, and GPS systems ("for Dads and grads") at Best Buy and other electronics stores as graduation season kicks off in June.
PRO TIP: Think about making Dad's life easier when browsing electronic accessories - like his own stash of extra smartphone charger cords, a spare memory stick for important work documents, or even a power strip to plug in all his workshop tools.
Does Dad like to barbecue? The department stores and supermarkets will be ready with special sales on barbecue tools and equipment this month. And, since June is also wedding month, gifts for the home cook will likely include deep discounts on dishes and kitchen cookware.
And if dad likes nothing better than to just laze around in a comfy leather recliner - surprise - every guy's favorite piece of furniture will on sale at department stores throughout the month of June.
Ties and tools, cookware and home exercise equipment,
and computer electronics all go on sale in June.
Meanwhile, sport retailers would also love to move their indoor exercise equipment out the door in June -- so look out for the cheapest prices of the year on treadmills this month.
If you're still stuck for ideas, there are more deals to be had at sporting good stores on golf clubs and equipment and fishing gear just for Dads on Father's day.
Of course, online retailers will also be in the thick of it for Father's Day. Look for special offers from Amazon along with other online shops selling Father's Day gift baskets, men's jewelry, cologne, and watches.
While you're searching online, don't forget to look for on-time and free shipping along with discount codes and coupons for additional savings off already ridiculous prices.
Keep a lookout on all that's going on sale this Father's Day weekend and you'll not only get a great bargain -- but you'll make Dad proud knowing that you shopped smart and saved a buck!
