Father's Day Freebies Becoming Increasingly More Common

Father's Day freebies are something that any father on a budget can appreciate. The holiday only comes once a year, so why not treat yourself, right?

According to a recent report, those in the business of celebrating holidays with promotions are just starting to offer Father's Day specials. The offers, mostly available at restaurants, are trying to bring in customers on a day that's not normally associated with deals.

Marketing consultant Tracey Riese told USA Today that Father's Day is not normally considered a holiday for deals because "children are not expected to treat their fathers on Father's Day." Restaurants are trying to get those families, including children, into the doors with the allure of free food and other goodies. It's hard to say if it will work, however, as most fathers would probably just want to stay home and relax on Father's Day.

If you decide to head out on Father's Day, you'll want to check out the following places:

  • Spaghetti Warehouse - Free spaghetti or lasagna entree with coupon.
  • Shoney's - Free fudge cake with purchase of entree.
  • TCBY - Free six-ounce cup or cone of frozen yogurt.
  • Hooters - Buy 10 wings and get 10 free.
  • Buca di Beppo - Free cannoli with coupon.
  • There are undoubtedly more deals than this at businesses around the nation. If you miss out this year, you might be able to convince businesses to hand you a freebie for being a stellar day. If not, there's always next year. Father's Day isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
