Father's Day 2010 freebies and deals


I rounded up 11 amazing freebies for you and your Dad this week in honor of Father's Day this Sunday, June 20. The list includes everything from sweet treats at TCBY and Tasti D-Lite to free meals, photos, cell phones, and a lot more. I'd be impressed if you actually managed to take advantage of every offer - but you can certainly try.

NEW! Treat your Dad to a free cup or cone at TCBY this Sunday at participating locations. Call first to check if your local shop is giving out freebie treats.

NEW! Take your Dad to Ikea Sunday, June 20, 2010 and he can munch on a small breakfast and coffee (normally worth $1.98) - for free!

In honor of dear old Dad, every phone at T-Mobile is free on Saturday, June 19, 2010. What's the catch? You have to sign a two-year agreement for a qualifying family plan. You may have to send in a mail-in rebate, too. But seriously, that's it. Fab deal. Doors open at 8 a.m.

Get free samples of True Lemon, True Lime and True Orange flavor packets to mix with water when you share a little info about yourself, including your name, address, e-mail, gender, and age category. You also have to answer two questions about how you heard about True Citrus products and where you do most of your grocery shopping. True Citrus products are used to flavor water, teas, and in recipes. True Citrus also makes a True Lemonade and True Raspberry Lemonade. The flavor packets are made from crystallized lemon and other citrus fruits. They have no calories or carbohydrates, the True Citrus site claims. Sounds interesting.

Thanks, Free Sample Freak!
