Let's raise a pint of beer - a free one - for dads Sunday.
Cashback and mobile shopping app Ibotta is honoring dads with its second annual "Hops for Pops' free beer rebate.
And that's only the start of a long list of freebies and deals for dads this Father's Day.
As for Ibotta, dads can collect when they order a beer at any bar and restaurant nationwide Sunday, earning back $5 through the smartphone program.
"This Father's Day, we want to let dads know that their efforts don't go unnoticed," said Bryan Leach, CEO of Ibotta, in a statement. "That's why we're raising a glass to all the amazing dads and father figures out there to remind them how meaningful they are to us."
To cash in on the 24-hour offer, download the Ibotta app, select the "Hops for Pops' rebate under the "Restaurants and Bars" category and then order a brew Sunday.
