There is still time for spontaneous displays of affection for everyone in your life. Whenever I buy something out of the ordinary, my family knows that I am showing love. Eating out is something out of the ordinary for me. A few deals I've found that allow for last-minute planning as well as some saving -- buy one, get one free (BOGO) and totally free deals -- are below.
Des Moines area Caribou Coffee stores have a BOGO special on drinks. Alerts about specials are frequently sent by text messages to your mobile device, so if you have unlimited texting, consider adding your number to Caribou Coffee's text list.
Starbucks is also having a BOGO special after 2 p.m. on Hot Chocolate, Vanilla Spice Latte, and Caffe Mocha. I am sure that all stand-alone Starbucks stores will honor this special. The Starbucks that are inside other stores may not, just ask before you order.
Redbox is giving away movie rentals with the promo code SWEET. Find a movie that is meaningful to you and reserve it online for best results.
A few stores at the mall are also having Valentine's Day specials. For example, if she is due for a new clothing item for work, The Limited is having Sweet Treats. In this deal, customers are given a small chocolate bar. The wrapper has a deal listed inside that is good that day -- 40% off one regularly priced item or $10 off a purchase.
