Valentine’s Day has never been my favorite holiday. However, if the last three years have taught me anything, it’s that we should take any chance to lavish ourselves and everyone we love with something good. Lately for me, that’s experiences, so I’m turning to Valentine’s Day deals on Groupon.
If you’re unfamiliar with the marketplace, it’s a site and app that offers discounts on vacation getaways, restaurants, spa and beauty treatments, and shopping. I’ve been using it for years to enjoy luxury hotel stays, trips to museums, and more. For those watching pennies, it’s a great place to save when searching Valentine’s Day gifts for yourself or anyone else.
Whether you’re planning a romantic date night or want to enjoy a night out solo, consider Groupon your personal event planner. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a coupon for a massage, local restaurant, or comedy show. Rest assured, there will be something to treat yourself with.
How does Groupon Work?
Groupon is a marketplace where you can find deals on experiences, services, and even groceries. Visit the website or download the mobile app, and filter available coupons by your location or the type of service you’re looking for.
All items include a detailed description of what a coupon includes, additional shipping costs (if any), and when a coupon expires. If you’re wary of discount sites, I can say from personal experience that Groupon has excellent customer service. I once had an issue with a hotel I booked through them, and a representative from the company called the hotel to straighten things out right away. I had a wonderful stay — plus a cocktail — okay, o two — while I waited for the situation to be fixed.
Groupon is all about the customer experience, which is why they have the Groupon Promise. According to the site, if you book a local Gropoun voucher before its promotional value has expired or go to a GrouponLive event or getaway that leaves a bad taste in your mouth, they work with you to make things sweet again. They also have some stellar refund policies regarding unclaimed vouchers. Make sure to read the fine print on whichever one you’re interested in for details.
I’m in New York, and the deals you find may be different depending on where you live. However, I’m sure you’re find something perfect for this Valentine’s Day or just because. Groupon is also a great site to visit when you’re planning to travel. When I used to travel to Las Vegas for my annual vacation, I always could find deals for shows and fun activities there.
But we’re not talking about vacations but Valentine’s Day, right? If you’re ready to show yourself some love, I suggest these amazing Groupon deals.

Although I sometimes spend my day in sweats (yah, remote work life), I’m a beauty gal through and through. I can’t think of a nicer pick-me-up than a gel manicure, fresh hair cut, and maybe a new makeup look. Although inner beauty is what counts the most, I always feel better with a more polished appearance. Here’s an idea: grab a Groupon coupon for you and your best friend to a local spa for Galentine’s day. A day of pampering is exactly what both of you need to chase the winter blues away.
