Father’s Day Gift Card Deals of 2019

Are you thinking of getting your dad a gift card for Father’s Day? I hope so because gift card statistics show that men love to receive gift cards! In a recent survey, 71% of men responded that receiving a gift card makes them happy! So that’s a pretty good indication that your dad will be equally pleased.

Before you run out to buy a gift card at the mall, however, take a look through this list of ways to save money or get special offers for the gift cards you’re planning to buy. Many top stores and restaurants offer Father’s Day gift card deals that often include either saving money on the gift card purchase or receiving a free promotional gift card with a gift card purchase. Some of these are just $5 freebies, while others offer double-digit deals.
