It’s Really a Big Deal—Tech Gifts for Father’s Day


Father's Day

Up until a few years ago, Father’s Day was a hard holiday to shop for. Shopping for dad or grandpa is never easy, but it’s even less so when all they’ll give you is, “I want to spend the day with the family,” when you know they still want a gift.

Today, with the prevalence of technology in every sector of our life, gift buying is a little easier. There’s likely some device he’s had his eye on that’s too much of a budget-buster for him to buy himself. While these items are expensive, there are some pretty massive sales this time of year that make purchasing them as a gift a lot cheaper than going out to buy them on a whim. For example, on PromoPro.com you can find Best Buy have a ton of great deals going on right now that can save you hundreds of dollars on some of the most relevant and up-to-date technology. Here are some of the biggest money-savers:


$200 Off Apple Watch

The Apple Watch 38mm with a black sports band typically goes for $549. Right now, it’s going for $349 which gives you $200 off. If you want to save even more money, you can get an open-box Apple Watch that’s guaranteed like new for only $296.99. This item also comes with a stainless steel case.


$300 off MacBook

Surprisingly enough, you can get a MacBook for under a grand. When you opt for a model with a 12” display, 8GB of memory and 256GB of flash storage, you can save $300 on your purchase. That takes the price down from $1,299 to $999. The open-box special on this version of the MacBook is $879.99.


$200 Gift Card with iPhone 6s

If Dad has an iPhone 5 or higher and has been looking to make a trade-in for the latest model, this is a great time to do it. When you trade in for an iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus, you get a $200 Best Buy gift card as long as you sign a 2-year contract with Verizon, Sprint or AT&T. Not only does he get a new phone, but he also gets $200 to spend on another toy later.


Save 18% on Wireless Flash Drives

Some of you may remember the review of SanDisk’s Connect Wireless Stick. It allows you to transfer photos, video and any other data from your phone or other device without hooking everything up to a computer. It was a big win, and you can currently get it $11 cheaper than normal—or 18% off. Normally you’d pay $59.99 for the 64GB version, but right now it can be had for only $48.99.

Actionable Saving Steps

Now that you know that Father’s Day is a great time to buy tech gear, let’s look at the overarching lessons these deals teach us. First, if you want to save more money on top of sales, look at open-box specials. Second, if you’re going to be upgrading technology, look at any offers that may exist for trading in the older version that you already have and will no longer be using. Third, know that just because an item is cheaper, that doesn’t mean that the percentage off is necessary smaller.

Finally, be sure to maximize all of your savings by checking out promo codes on PromoPro.com before you check out. If you’re interested in maximizing these deals, you’ll want to specifically look at promo codes for Best Buy.
