Father’s Day Bonanza ($533.99 for $43.36 )

This year’s Father’s Day was a huge blessing. Two weeks before FD, Mervyn’s had a sale. You bought one polo you received two for free. They also had many of their men’s clothing on sale.

Then last Monday I read the following blog post over at Families.com. The title was Dress Dad for Father’s Day. Here is the deal I did twice.

Sears is giving away a $75 Shell gas card plus a $10 reward card when you purchase $100 in Dockers men's apparel and accessories. Purchases may be made online or in the store. Visit Sears or print out a rebate form and mail it in with the original receipt. You can make this deal a little sweeter if you combined it with the Kmart Hulk movie deal. Go to Kmart first and purchase two $50 gift cards. Take the Kmart gift cards to Sears and exchange them for a $100 gift card. Use the Sears gift card to make the Dockers purchase. When you are done, you will have a $75 Shell gas card, a $10 Sears reward card, 4 free movie tickets to see the Incredible Hulk, and a Father's Day gift. Remember Sears will price match 110% on exact items. Does any other department store have Dockers on sale cheaper? Purchases must be made between June 7, 2008 and June 15, 2008.

Also, Sears had many of the Dockers on sale too. So here is what we got.

I love the fact that your oldest child was so excited about doing this and explained it in detail to me...and I got confused! But she gets it...you're such a good mommy!
