1. Express your love with Rattlebox.com: Don’t just say your love: express it in your own unique style with a whimsical or goofy video e-card from Rattlebox. Rattlebox provides 1000’s of free, unique and fun video card choices, or be creative and produce your own!

2. Feed your love with Restaurant.com: No reservations for the big night? That’s ok. Gift your loved one with a Restaurant.com gift card and let them pick the day to celebrate your love. Use coupon code “SWEETIE” and spend only $2 for a $25 gift card. That is a fantastic deal! Hurry: this coupon code expires on Valentine’s Day. But wait: buy through Mr. Rebates and receive a giant 30% cash back. Now that’s a sweet deal of a meal!

3. Wrap up your love with Giftly.com: Need a gift for a far-away sweetheart? Send them a Giftly gift card. Does your sweetheart have a cell phone? Have Giftly “deliver” your gift right to their phone with a special text message and a link to your Giftly gift. Surprise your sweetie when you can’t be there yourself.

4. Send your love in a Hallmark e-Card: Don’t have time to get to your local Hallmark store? Show how much you care with a Hallmark Valentine’s Day e-card. A great last minute option to “heart” your loved one.

6. Be Stellar with Groupon’s Star Naming Gift Set: Give an “out of this world” gift with the Name-A-Star offer and let them know they are your special twinkling star. A real rocket ship even launches the name and dedication message into Earth’s orbit to mark the celestial occasion. Buy your Groupon gift through Mr. Rebates and receive 8% cash back. How cool is that!

    Fantastic list, Carol! I couldn’t believe the restaurants.com deal, Carol, so I headed over to the site. It took me a while to figure out, but I finally got the great deal. You need to select a restaurant to get the deal. If you buy the general restaurants.com gift card, the promo code doesn’t work.

    That being said, I was able to get coupons to two of my favorite restaurants. Thanks for saving me even more money, Carol!

    Hi Carolyn, Thanks for clarifying for everyone how to optimize the Restaurant.com deal. Not all restaurants are participating in this deal, but for those that are, awesome for us! I added in my Mr. Rebates cash back and bought several deals for less than $2.
    Glad to hear you were able to get the deal to two of your favorites. I also found two of my favorites. Looks like dinner … or perhaps lunch … is on Restaurant.com!
