During tougher economic times, people come together for mutual support, and I think that’s why there’s a rise in Valentine’s Day spending on friends and colleagues.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 6, 2010
Christmas Coupons isn’t just for, well, Christmas coupons anymore. The internet coupon provider is helping consumers save money during the second-largest gift-giving holiday, the Holiday of Love, by uploading hundreds of coupons in time for Valentine’s Day.
This is just in time for American consumers who are looking to ease the strain to their bank accounts with Valentine’s Day sales. Despite the pinch, National Retail Federation (NRF) studies show that Valentine’s Day takes the third-largest slice of the Holiday Spending pie at an estimated $14.1 billion for 2010. Last year, Americans spent $14.3 billion, so spending remains relatively steady.
Tradition still reigns, and forecasters expect men to spend more than women do on their partners, $135.35 compared to $72.28. Even with Valentine’s Day coupons to ease the cost, men end up spending more money on their female partners due to cultural expectations. “Although discretionary spending for Valentine’s Day is commensurate to last year, people still want to save money while buying the perfect gifts for their loved ones,” says Anna Reed, spokeswoman for Christmas Coupons. “Male consumers have been using more of our jewelry coupons to get the best possible gift for their partners.”
The NRF study also shows that more Americans will be spending on friends, colleagues, and even their pets this year. “During tougher economic times, people come together for mutual support, and I think that’s why there’s a rise in Valentine’s Day spending on friends and colleagues,” says Ms. Reed. Using flowers coupons, she adds, is a great way to show your appreciation.
“We’re delighted to be part of our customers’ Valentine’s Day celebrations. Besides helping them by offering great Valentine’s Day sales, it shows that they are turning to us as a year-round source for the best online coupons.”
