“Honey, you wouldn’t believe how cheap your gift was!” That’s not the most romantic thing to hear on Valentine’s Day. But no one needs to know how much (or how little) you spent.
When it comes to romance, coupons and online shopping probably aren’t the first things that come to mind. But, according to a study from eBillMe, perhaps that’s changing—at least the online shopping bit. In its survey, 32% of consumers said they would shop online for Valentine’s gifts, up from 23% a year ago. And, well, if you’re shopping online, why not get the best price possible with the help of one of these coupon codes or promotions?
