If you’re planning on buying something for Dad for Father’s Day via the online Apple Store, do it before May 29th. Up till then, Apple will ship all purchases for free. That’s on everything, not the usual $50 and up for a promotion like this.
The Father’s Day promotion gives shoppers a bit more latitude when buying something for the “old man.” The promotion includes accessories and third-party products not usually eligible for free shipping when purchased separately.
This way, you can buy him a lightning cable instead of an iPad, and you’ll still get free shipping. It isn’t much, but it’s better than asking him for 35 cents so you can go buy him a pack of cigarettes. (See Bill Cosby video below.)
