We’ve Got the Perfect Gift for Dad this Father’s Day (and for you, too): Buy One ūmi, Get One Free

Undoubtedly, the best way to spend Father’s Day with dad is at one of his favorite places.  We always have a big family dinner. What are your traditions?  Do you go hiking?  Go to the movies?  Sit at home and watch golf?  Regardless, there’s nothing like making dad feel like a king for a day doing whatever he likes to do best.

For those of us who don’t live close to home, technology is bringing us closer than ever before so that we can spend time with dad face-to-face.  Sure, we can’t eat his famous burgers virtually (not yet at least) but we can catch up and tell him we love him through video calling.  And with Cisco ūmi, you can tell him Happy Father’s Day from your couch in high-def on your HDTV.

As a thanks to dads all over the U.S., we’re offering you the perfect Father’s Day present: when you buy one ūmi, you get one free.  Click on a logo below to start shopping:

But hurry up.  This great deal ends on June 19, 2011.
