Have Your Cake and Eat it Too This Valentine’s Day. Mmmm Cake…

Ah, Valentine’s Day. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…  I’m actually kind of indifferent to the holiday, but for the sake of this blog post I’ll side with the lovers.

The phrase “Happy Valentine’s Day” has become so synonymous with retail spending over the years that some are simply not buying the idea (or a box of chocolates) anymore. The anti-Valentine’s Day activists say it’s a “pointless made-up holiday” or they proclaim, “I don’t need one day out of the year to remind me to tell or show someone I love them”.

The “Negative Nancies” make some fair points, but what would they have you do otherwise: Decline to buy the person you love some nice flowers or a small gift?  How about you just stay at home with your significant other and eat a TV dinner like any other night? Nothing says you care like a TV dinner.

No. You aren’t going to do that, because then you’d be a jerk. And no one likes a jerk. Except for maybe this jerk. He’s cool.

Convinced yet? I thought so… So now that you have decided to shell out the cash, you need to decide what to get your Hunny Bunny (< cough> Mom<cough>). However, you don’t want to spend too much. You know, because of the economy or something.

Another hurdle in buying the perfect gift is actually making the effort to get in your car and drive to the mall. For me, the mall is out of the question for a few reasons. First off, I’m a pretty lazy person. Secondly, there are a lot of people at the mall including kids. Just saying. Lastly and probably my strongest reason, this is the 21st century and shopping online is awesome. It’s convenient, fast, and more times than not, I can get discounts and free shipping.

Lets recap: Participating in V-Day? Check.  Shopping Online? Check. Finding a great gift for your soul mate (er, Mom) at a discounted price? Uhm…

Don’t fret. Billeo has you covered. Billeo’s free Offer Assistant brings the savings to YOU, while you shop online! Take a look at some of these great offers I’ve complied for you with the help of Offer Assistant.

Also, since Offer Assistant may display up to three unique offers per merchant, don’t forget to configure the new Loyalty Program Selector to have Billeo display the offers you want to see. Take my case for example. Since my bank is Bank of America and I have a Visa credit card, I configured my Offer Assistant to display BofA and Visa offers first. Now I am guaranteed not to miss a great deal that I can use!

There it is: That’s my pitch. Legitimate holiday or not, I hope you and your mom (just admit it already!) have a great Valentine’s Day.

Either way, check out Offer Assistant. Whether you’re buying gifts for others or shopping for your own stuff, it can help save you money. Even in the best of economic times that’s a pretty good thing.
