Frugal shoppers are always looking to save a few dollars, even on a Valentine’s Day edible fruit bouquet. But, can you imagine buying a fruit basket off the clearance racket? The fruit would most likely be spoiled. Fortunately, several websites and gift basket companies feature discounts, coupons and other special discounts for Valentine’s Day. It’s a matter of knowing how and where to redeem these deals.
Some fruit bouquet companies release their Valentine’s Day deals early.
Only you and the fruit basket company that you place a Valentine’s Day order will know that the fruit arrangement was bought below the retail value. It’s not like a fruit bouquet company will send out an aging fruit basket.
Compare special discounts.
Some Valentine’s Day edible fruit bouquets include a teddy bear, mylar balloon and the fruit bouquet. Prior to opting for the special gift be sure to compare the price of the bouquet with comparable bouquets (where the extras are not included). Sometimes, these package gifts have a mark-up.
Let’s say the regular price of the bouquet is $65 and the Valentine’s Day special includes the extras for the same price, then this is a deal.
