Happy Valentine’s Day

Flower rose-One Big Red One gc7c843ef3_640It’s predicted Americans will spend an average of $175 on Valentine’s Day. That sounds like a present and a nice dinner.

Me? I’ll be eating chocolates and drinking cava.

Americans will spend more than $23.9 billion to celebrate the romantic holiday this year. That makes Valentine’s Day the third most expensive holiday on the calendar for U.S. consumers.

As for bargains, did you find any deals, around 20 percent off, on jewelry, flowers, and candy, before Valentine’s Day? Of course, tomorrow you’ll find discounts on any left-over candy.

I’ve been waiting for a year for the iPhone 12 to be reduced in price. I’d like to stick with Verizon because they have the best network for calls. However, I just called and the Valentine’s Day sales price is $710. Last week, it was $699. Oh, well, maybe I can get a deal for the President’s Day sales.

On President’s Day you’re likely to find opportunities to save on electronics, clothing, mattresses, home goods and furniture, and large appliances.
