Valentine’s Day is that time of year when our paychecks magically turn into a box of chocolates or a romantic candlelit dinner. Hell, maybe even both. If you can’t quite splurge, there are some options. Look and you just might find some good deals that won’t break the bank (or your heart).

A lot of stores and restaurants hold holiday promotions that will keep you, your partner and your wallet happy. Don’t worry if you’re not in a relationship. We’ve got all of you lovely single ladies out there. We’ve found deals for you too.

Here are some Valentine’s Day Deals for you to enjoy. And no, they’re not all chocolates, roses and candles.


Qdoba

Qdoba is running a special Valentine’s day promotion: Qdoba For a Kiss. It’s a catchy name with an equally sly catch. Just a kiss at checkout to receive a BOGO deal. Don’t worry if you’re not comfortable or if you have no one to kiss. According to Qdoba kissing your friend, your partner, or even your hand counts towards the promotion.

Not only that, but Qdoba will also donate a dollar to No Kid Hungry for every kissing photo shared on social media. Just make sure to use the hashtag #QdobaForAKiss. This only lasts February 10-15, so pucker up and snap away.

The BOGO freebie is only available on February 14, so hurry over before the day is done.


Hooters

“Revenge is a dish best served with wings.”

The restaurant well known for its lovely ladies is offering a Valentine’s Day deal for the single and heartbroken. Just come into a participating Hooters location on February 14 and shred a photo of your ex. Yes, you heard me. All you need to do is rip that sucker up and they’ll give you ten free boneless wings when you buy ten.

“Hooters is opening its doors to the romantically weary this Valentine’s Day. For those rebounding from a tough break-up or just taking a break from the whole relationship thing, Hooters is offering a tasty solution: shred ’em and forget ’em,” the Hooters company stated in a press release.

Want to do it online instead of in store? You can take the #shredyourex quiz and receive a coupon when you’re done.


Shake Shack

Want to feel like you’re on a date in the 1950s? Well, maybe you won’t be able to gaze lovingly into your partner’s eyes while sharing one strawberry milkshake but instead you can have two. On February 14, if you buy one milkshake, your date can get one free. While the promotion hasn’t been publicly announced yet, the company has done it every year prior. Fingers crossed that this one gets announced soon.


Mimi’s Cafe

Feeling brave? Here’s your chance to get rewarded for your bravery. Mimi’s Cafe is running a “Share the Love” event on their Facebook page. All you need to do is post a message confessing your love to someone special and you’ll receive a free entree on your next visit to a participating location.


The Wheel Mill

Does the thought of a fancy dinner bore you? For all you thrill seekers, here’s a perfect deal. The Wheel Mill, an indoor bike park, is offering a buy one get one free deal on day passes. Bring your date for a day of riding the ramps and hoping you don’t crash into one another. The park has many terrains and rooms to choose from, including a jump room, a pump track and a technical room for any challenges you want to take up.


Things Remembered

What better way to immortalize your love than to get it engraved on something special? Things Remembered is offering to personalize “Love” on any gift for free on February 14. You can do this both in store or online. If you want to do your order online, simply use the code LOVE. If you think about it, a gift from here will be remembered longer than that $600 dinner. It’s also cheaper.


Vermont Teddy Bear

What’s cute and cuddly and comes with chocolate? A Vermont Teddy Bear. The stuffed animal makers are offering special gourmet chocolate and a personalized card with any purchase. Go with either the classic bear holding a beautiful rose bouquet or the four-inch tall teddy bear. The way to my heart has always been paved with hugs and chocolate. This deal covers both.

Whether or not you want a quick bite to eat or a gift to satisfy your partner, there will always be a deal out there for you. And who knows? Maybe the singles out there can find love while awaiting their order at Qdoba? Happy Valentine’s Day!
