Here are some extra goodies we found on MSN
This guest post comes from Lou Carlozo at Dealnews.
Free subscription to Car and Driver magazine
It may be a stereotype that men are hardwired to care about cars, but in the (somewhat likely) scenario that your father is an auto enthusiast, consider signing him up for this deal: Mercury Magazines offers a Car and Driver magazine 1-Year subscription for free, in exchange for information about you and your company. (As such, only “qualified” individuals are eligible.)
Free XM OnyX Radio bundle
If Dad does enjoy cruising around in his set of wheels, then perhaps he could use some improved tunes. Weighing in as the best deal we’ve ever seen from XM Satellite Radio, the company currently offers its XM OnyX Radio with an XM PowerConnect FM Transmitter Vehicle Kit and 30 Days of XM Satellite Radio for free.
You will, however, have to foot the $11 shipping fee, and if you don’t cancel before the 30-day trial ends, your credit card will automatically be subscribed to a recurring quarterly subscription plan at the current rate every three months. (This plan is currently $43.47 for three months.) See the terms and conditions for more information.
Free Father’s Day iPad app
Visit the Apple Store and you’ll get the Father’s Day iPad app by The Rosa Group, which comes with suggestions for the top gifts, things to do and facts about Father’s Day. Consider this freebie a risk-free investment in helping to find Dad a great gift — and an app that Dad will get a kick out of too. Because who doesn’t love trivia, after all?
Free samples galore
OK, so free samples are perhaps not the best freebie to give to Dad, but that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from one of these deals, after all that diligent shopping for someone else, right?
The manliest of the bunch includes this New York Yankees fragrance sample, which we actually think Dad might appreciate (when it eventually arrives) since it probably smells exactly like Derek Jeter. There’s also a Clear Men Scalp Therapy sample on the table (which you can receive after “liking” them on Facebook), as well as these offers.
If we find any other Father’s Day freebies, we’ll be sure to pass on the news. Happy Father’s Day to all of you!
