There’s a famous saying about women worrying about the future until they get a husband, but men never worrying about the future until they get a wife.

Like a lot of guys, I can vouch for the latter. While it’s easy to be cavalier about the long term when you’re young and unfettered, marriage and fatherhood have an amazing way of concentrating the mind.

Among the wide array of domestic considerations, finances loom large. Otherwise, how are you going to pay for a home, medical bills and a whole host of other expenses? While most fathers are glad for the responsibility, the appreciation that comes with it makes it especially worthwhile.

If you are wondering how you might express thanks to your dad on Father’s Day, I thought I would share some deals on gift cards that are carrying promotional bonuses during this time.

By showing a little financial savvy in the process, you can give an extra nod to your father’s efforts at providing. Some points to consider when you check out the deals on the chart.

* In many cases, the promotions are over on June 17.

* Most bonuses expire after a specified time. If the date is not specified in the table, check online or with the store for additional information.
