Happy Valentine’s Day! This week’s deals on travel, electronics, and body wash aren’t especially romantic, but savings are in the air.
We do have a Valentine’s-themed freebie: You can download 5 hours of classical music featured on The 50 Most Essential Romantic Classics for free. The download has been popular all weekend, so it may be a bit slow.
If that’s not your thing, here’s another giveaway: a free milkshake at Checkers or Rally’s.
You can stock up on 50-percent-off Caffe Verona Starbucks coffee at Amazon, paying only $17.50 for 36 ounces.
Guys looking to shed some winter weight might look over this half-price athletic wear at Amazon.
And everybody can save up to 30 percent on Unilever bath and body products with coupon code TCR5JU6H and the “subscribe and save” option – which you can cancel after your order arrives. Unilever owns Axe, Suave, Vaseline, Ponds, and a few smaller brands. If you use any of those, check it out and save.
Planning a trip to China or Japan in the next two months? American Airlines is offering a one-way ticket to Shanghai or Tokyo for $300 – that’s before fees, of course, but still an excellent deal.
If you need a nice camera for the trip, check out the under-$250 Pentax X90, a 12 megapixel digital camera with 26x optical zoom, at Abe’s of Maine. The retail price is usually between $350 and $400.
And what about video? Best Buy’s got its Insignia HD camcorder on sale for $50 – the original price is $130.
A good place to keep your new electronics is in this $15 Targus backpack at Walmart, which can hold laptops up to 17” and whatever else you want to stick in there. These usually cost twice as much.
Let’s wrap up with Amazon’s weird deal of the week: $85 for a home laminator machine. Assuming you’re in the market for one of these, this one is less than half the normal cost.
Here’s hoping you have a great (affordable) Valentine’s Day – and don’t forget to come back next week for more deals.
