Valentine’s Values

If your heart races at the thought of a good value, then don’t wait until the last minute to make your Valentine’s Day arrangements.

Digital offers site RetailMeNot found that three in ten people in relationships wait until the last minute. The company also found that those who plan ahead can save some real money.

Here is their advice:

  • Flowers shouldn’t be last minute: Plan to purchase flowers online during the first two weeks of February as retailers like 1-800 Flowers and offer the highest percent off during those weeks.
  • Buy chocolates strategically: The second week of February is one of the best times to purchase luxury chocolate from Godiva since the brand offers rare percentage-off discounts during this time period.
  • Lingerie: RetailMeNot 2015 data shows that lingerie is discounted as deep as 43% off ten days before Valentine’s Day.

Now that we’re in the magical second week of February, you’ll have your work cut out. Because nothing says “I love you” quite like discounted chocolates.
