Consumers are accustomed to finding great deals during the holiday shopping season. While not nearly as well publicized, finding a deal can be just as simple and rewarding throughout the rest of the year, particularly in the weeks leading up to Valentine's Day.
How does one find deep Valentine's Day discounts online? It definitely pays to remember all the tips and tricks savvy shoppers use during the holiday shopping season. Online coupon sites such as http://couponpuppet.com/ are a great resource. Most also have Facebook and Twitter accounts where they promote their very best deals, so fanning one's favorite coupon site on facebook or following it on twitter can lead to big savings with minimal effort. Seeking out individual stores on Facebook and Twitter is also a good idea, if one has a particular purchase in mind.
Some shoppers may feel awkward seeking out a deal on a holiday that values extravagance. Heather Simmons, CEO of Coupon Puppet, believes that is an attitude that is easy to change. "Just look at online coupon codes as a way to get more value out of the money you were already planning to spend. If you budgeted $50 for a bouquet of flowers for your wife, why not use a $10 off coupon on a $60 bouquet and get more bang for your buck? The same principle applies whether you are buying a $10 box of candy, a $1000 diamond or a trip to the Bahamas."
Much like the last minute flurry of deals leading up to December 25, Valentine's Day shoppers may see increasing discounts leading up to February 14. Simmons advises, "If you know what you want to buy and you see a great deal on that particular item, go ahead and grab it. But there is no need to panic if it is February 7 and you haven't found the perfect gift. Many online merchants will be offering free or discounted expedited shipping as the big day approaches. Online flower stores in particular seem to offer better and better deals the closer you get to Valentine's Day. Here at Coupon Puppet, we've got a Valentine's Day deals page that is updated daily. It's a great starting point for shoppers, even if you have no idea what you want to buy."
Finally, Simmons deadpans, "Just remember, using a Valentine's Day coupon code does not mean you love your significant other any less."
