Can Valentines Day be Frugal? Helpful Tips!

Remember when you first started dating and you spent tons of money on your significant other? If you are in a new relationship then maybe you haven’t gotten out of this stage yet.

Valentines Day can be a touchy subject with some. I go back and forth with having one day that you are supposed to all of a sudden be more loving and nicer. On the other hand, sometimes you do get caught up with life and having a day to remind you to pay some attention to your significant other can be good for your relationship.

You don’t want to look like money is more important that your honeybee. You also don’t want to blow your budget. The best way to do it is to get an amazing gift for a lower price without him or her ever knowing that is what you did. Shhh, your secret is safe.

There is always the chance that your sweetpea doesn’t want you to spend money on him or her this year. If you think this is true than make sure of it before Valentine’s Day rolls around – nothing is worse than a years penance because you believed the “I don’t want anything but you” line. And, don’t think that takes you off the hook! You have an even tougher time because you have to come up with something that is truly meaningful (dinner at the restaurant you proposed in or maybe a Pickle Pucker Jar).

On to the deals, today I am posting Jewelry deals. I know these are probably for women (some men love jewelry), but hopefully I’ll find some more ideas that will work for men as the weeks roll on. If you have some suggestions then leave a comment. I’m going to save the free ideas for closer to Feb 14th. Jewelry tends to only go up as we march closer to V Day.

Remember, the key is to NOT let your pumpkin know that you got this on sale!

  • Szul has some great clearance items right now that you can combine with Mr. Rebates for an extra 5% off and coupon codes for an additional $20-$100 off. They also offer a free gift with a $150 purchase (a Platinum plated diamond circle pendant). If you go that route then you can save the free gift necklace for Christmas or a Birthday.

The “Hugs and Kisses” bracelet to the left is on super clearance for $69. There are not any coupon codes for an item this low, but you will get 5% back through Mr. Rebates so your final price would be $65.55. The retail price is $335.

There are lots of things in the clearance section, the free gift applies to these (just not the deal of the day “special” items). You could get the ring to the right that retails for $655 but is on clearance for $179. Using the coupon code LOVE20 to get $20 off and the 5% back from Mr. Rebates you would end up with the $655 ring for Valentines Day and the Platinum plated diamond pendant for Christmas/Birthday and you would spend $151.05!

The coupon codes are:

LOVE20 – $20 off $100
LOVE50 – $50 off $275
LOVE75 – $75 off $375
LOVE100 – $100 off $575

Free gift automatically added when you spend $150
