DAYS TO SAVE - Valentine's Day on a Budget
It's the holiday of love. February 14 is Valentine's Day - a day when many of us shower our loved ones with candy, flowers and other gifts in the name of Cupid. DAYS TO SAVE has some simple ways you can show your love and save some money:
Who doesn't love coupon deals? Groupon is a simple way to get discounts for romantic gifts such as spa days, massage packages or couples getaways. RetailMeNot is offering Valentine's Day coupon deals at retailers including Sephora, Macy's and Best Buy. Check out the websites for current offers. Dollar stores are great for holidays like Christmas and Halloween. The same goes for Valentine's Day. Pick up a bunch of Valentine's Day themed helium balloons for a dollar each. Create a custom gift basket for your loved one with bath salts, bubble bath, body spray and creams. Why not purchase a Valentine's Day card here as well? If you want to order flowers for your Valentine, the time to do it is now. According to a report from Brad's Deals, the price of roses started inching up in the middle of January and will continue to climb as we move closer to the holiday. Teleflora, FTD and 1-800-Flowers are among the floral retailers offering discounts on Valentine's flowers. Save money on delivery and have the flowers delivered to you the day before Valentine's Day. Then present it the one you love in person without the extra cost! Want to dine with your loved one on a discount? White Castle is now accepting reservations for its annual Valentine's Day dinner Tuesday, February 14, from 4 – 9 p.m. The experience is complete with hostess seating and table side service. Believe it or not, this will be the 26th year the restaurant chain has held the event. White Castle says reservations fill up quickly at many locations, so it's best to book early. Waffle House Restaurants is also promoting an event for the holiday - complete with white tablecloths, candles, soft music and craft tailored menus. The School Bell has rung! Class dismissed!
