But beware, if you’re planning to ‘treat’ your dad to the standard socks-and-jocks, not only will the reception be lukewarm, you’d be quite frankly wasting your money. Relying purely on quick-math, if you were pick up a 3-pack of Calvin Kleins, accompanied by some Happy Socks, you’re looking at just under $160 (10 cents under to be exact).
Well, in news to save your bank balance and your relationship with your old man, today you can buy your Dad a flight for less than half that price. Aussie flight operator Jetstar announced a Spring Sale this morning, just in time for last minute Father’s Day gifts, and the prices are extremely low.
