Father’s Day is June 18th, and you know what that means? It means that Mom or the kids will get stuck doing the lawn work, pool work, and grilling that weekend!!! Just kidding (maybe!), it means that you need to come up with a fabulous gift idea for Dad to show him how much you appreciate him.

Well, what the heck does Father’s Day have to do with Co-op? It means that if you work with an advertiser that sells any items that “Dad” might love, they may be eligible to use their co-op funding to promote those items. Getting those items advertised, starting at the end of May or the first of June, will get all those moms and kids into their stores to buy the gifts. Then when your advertiser depletes their shelves, they can order new inventory and earn more co-op funding to promote the next holiday (think 4th of July!).

Let’s look at a few brands that offer co-op funding in the fishing, lawn care, grilling, golfing, and boating categories below:
