Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which means it’s time for deals on chocolate, jewelry, and…pizza?
Well, the pizza deal is Super Bowl-related, actually. We’ll get to that. But first, this week’s freebies: a free waffle at Waffle House. Since the coupon’s good for the next month, maybe you can enjoy more than one. Also, if you “Like” Einstein Bagel Bros. on Facebook – a growing marketing trend for food freebies – you can get a coupon for a free thin bagel with a drink purchase.
While we’re on the subject of food deals, a Papa John’s special is running through Super Bowl Sunday. Until then, you can order any large pizza – including specialty pizzas – with up to seven toppings for $10. Plus, if you sign up for their perks program, you’ll score a free pizza if the Super Bowl goes into overtime.
By the way, sports fans, you can pick up a year’s subscription of Sports Illustrated for $20 – and you get a jacket from your favorite team for free.
OK, on to the Valentine’s stuff. First, another magazine: if the relationship’s going well, why not pick up a free year’s subscription to Bridal Guide?
Then there’s chocolate, of course. Godiva is having another sale with up to 60 percent off a variety of goodies, including cupcakes, cakes, and truffles. Go for the stuff on sale, then buy one small (cheap) Valentine’s-themed item and pretend it’s all for the holiday.
If Godiva is a little high-end for you, how about 5 pounds of M&Ms for $22 at Amazon – about 30 percent off. They also have other, over-priced Valentine’s chocolates on sale – some are as much as half off.
Jewelry? Amazon’s got some deals, including 14k white gold natural diamond stud earrings for $400. If that’s too much for you, they have a wide selection of diamond stud earrings starting under $50. Plenty of other jewelry on sale too, including necklaces: Here’s a sterling silver diamond pendant for $85.
That’s all for this week. We hope it’s a good one. Check back next time for more deals, and let us know about your best finds in the comments.
