From October through April I probably eat a total of five burgers, as they’re usually made by Red Robin. But once summer hits and the grill gets fired up I find myself eating burgers multiple times a week. But other than going in for my free birthday burger, I seem to neglect Red Robin at this time of year.

But with the offer they have now in conjunction with the soon-to-hit movie theaters The Wolverine, I have a feeling I’ll be making a visit shortly.

Through June 30, if you purchase a $25 limited edition The Wolverine gift card at participating Red Robin restaurants, you will receive a free movie ticket to see the film when you enter the gift card code at www.redrobin.com/movietix. Guests will then be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip for two to Japan for the ultimate “Wolverine” experience and other great prizes like Visa gift cards and signed movie posters.Limited Edition Wolverine Offer Poster - Burger on top of Wolverine Claws

Red Robin will also reward any guest who sees the movie during opening weekend (July 26-28) and brings their ticket stub into participating restaurants the following Monday through Thursday, with $3 off their visit.

Sounds like a good Father’s Day gift idea to me. But it’s not the only one.

Moms, if you have a little tyke, sign him or her up, along with dad, for next weekend’s free Lowe’s Build & Grow Kids Clinic. Kids will enjoy building a Monsters University Chest. Kids will also get a free apron, project patch and project kit. Register early as each Kids Clinic only has between 50 and 100 spots and they fill up fast. The recommended ages are 5 to 12 but you can bring younger children as long as you can provide them the help and supervision they need.

Dad will love spending time with the kids and it’s a nice after-Father’s Day event to look forward to. The workshops will be held on Saturday, June 22 at 10 a.m. and Sunday, June 23 at 2 p.m. and the Edwardsville, Wilkes-Barre, Dickson City, Mount Pocono and Hazleton stores are all participating. Go to www.lowesbuildandgrow.com to learn more and to register.

Now I normally wouldn’t advocate spending more than $400 on a gift for dad but when it’s a deal like this and it’s a gift that will really be used by the entire family, I must. Walmart has a 50” Element 1080p LED HDTV on sale this week for $428. I’ve checked online and at other area stores for the same product and this is the cheapest I could find for a new one. So I say if you want it and you can afford it, get it.

CVS is offering $10 in Extra Bucks rewards when you purchase $50 in Bass Pro Shops, Golfsmith, iTunes or Kohl’s gift cards. Whether the cards are given as gifts or used personally, it’s a good offer.

Not to be outdone, Rite Aid is offering $10 is +Up Rewards if you purchase $50 in Discover Home Improvement gift cards, which are able to be used at dozens of retailers that cater to do-it-yourselfers including Home Depot, Do It Best, Ace, Tractor Supply and more. See the full list and other card details here: www.homeimprovementgiftcard.com/home.html

Also on the topic of gift cards, Price Chopper is offering three times the fuel rewards when you purchase Lowe’s, iTunes, Applebees, Sears, Curtis Lumber and Regal Cinema gift cards through June 16.
