Happy Father’s Day!
Looking for a last-minute idea to make dad’s day special? There’s plenty to do with dad today including:
* Take dad to a baseball game. The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders travel to Allentown to take on the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs for a 1:35 p.m. first pitch. The first 2,000 men 18 year of age or older get a free Iron Pugs bucket hat.
* Want to stay a bit closer to home and beat the heat? Head to Montage Mountain’s newly dubbed water park Montage Meltown where today only, dad’s admission ticket is free with the purchase of a regular priced general admission or under 48” admission ticket. Go here for ticket prices and details: www.montageisback.com/Meltdown/Tickets/
* Chacko’s Family Bowling Center on Wilkes-Barre Boulevard is offering free bowling today when his family bowls with him. Call the lanes at 208-BOWL for more details.
* If you’re of drinking age and want to buy dad a shot or pint or both, head over to My Lower End bar and restaurant in Larksville today to enjoy $1 pints and Jack Daniels shots today.
* Dads will get a free, six-ounce cups of TCBY frozen yogurt. The closest store is in Dickson City.
* Though there are no Hooters locally, but perhaps you’ll be near one on your travels today and want to stop in to take advantage of the buy 10 wings, get 10 wings free deal for dads.
* Head to one of the area’s many restaurants and enjoy special meals for dad. Among those offering special menus are Olive Garden, Longhorn and Lonestar Steakhouse. Uno Chicago Grill in Dickson City has a coupon in today’s Times Leader glossy inserts for a free entree when you buy one up to $15. Outback Steakhouse also has coupons good for $8 off the purchase of two dinners or $5 off two lunches.
Some are offering nice deals including TGI Friday’s which will give you a $10 Bonus Bites gift card redeemable in July or August for every $50 in gift cards you purchase. Burger King is giving you a $5 eGiftcard when you order a $20 giftcard. You must do this today or tomorrow and the order must be made online by going to: www.bk.com/en/us/crowncard/index.htm/ These are also nice graduation gifts.
While you’re up at Montage stop by the Quiznos in the Shoppes at Montage and use this coupon: http://tinyurl.com/mjj88f5 to get a free bag of chips and regular fountain drink with the purchase of a regular or large sub, salad or flatbread.
This is not a gift for dad, but it’s something dads should consider ordering while they’re free: Get a free sample of Depend absorbency shields by going to guardyourmanhood.com or by calling 1-888-504-8604.
I know not all of my readers are dads or care too much about Father’s Day deals, so here’s a look at this week’s best coupon matchups:
Shur Save and Price Chopper both have Luigi’s Real Italian Ice buy-one, get-one free. There’s a 50 cent off coupon in today’s Times Leader that will double to $1. So get two packages for $1 less than the typical price of one. Shur Save also has Kozy Shack pudding tubs buy-one, get-one free and there’s a $1 off two coupon that can be used to cash in on savings.
Also at Shur Save, Finish dishwasher detergent is on sale for $3.99. Use the $2.15 off coupon to pay just $1.84.
Kmart has select items, shown on the back page of its circular, buy-one, get-one half off. There is a coupon for one of those listed products in today’s paper: $3 off Gillette Fusion ProGlide razors. Check your coupons at home to see if you have any others that could be used with this deal. I recall Scope, Old Spice body wash, Pantene and some others in the deal being in recent week’s coupon inserts.
