Valentine’s Day is a holiday full of love, laughter and, if you’re a bargain hunter, lots of sweet savings. Most Americans will celebrate by buying gifts and taking loved ones out for drinks, dinner or dessert. But who says you have to spend big bucks to show your love?
Money-saving cupids should aim their arrow at restaurants offering Valentine’s Day dinner specials and discounts, or attractions offering Valentine’s Day deals. We’ve even found a great price on two dozen roses, so you can spoil your sweetheart and your daughter or mom.
The following 2021 Valentine’s Day offers are available at participating locations, while supplies last. Because Valentine’s Day is so popular, you should call ahead to secure a reservation or place an early order.
Don’t forget to support your local restaurants and shops, if possible. Many will be offering lots of lovely specials for the day, so check their website or call ahead to inquire about any possible Valentine’s Day deals.
