Save on Valentine's Day

Romancing your sweetheart doesn't have to be expensive.

If you're looking to save on flowers, see if there's a Produce Junction near you. There, you can buy a dozen roses for Valentine's Day for $8 -- long-stems are just a bit more.

They buy from the same wholesaler as many florists, but because they sell so many flowers, they're able to pass the savings on. For a list of locations, click here.

Also on our codes and coupons page, you'll find codes that will save you $10 to $75 off lingerie from Frederick's of Hollywood and Victoria's Secret, 15% off jewelry purchases from Ultra Diamonds, and free shipping from Harry London.

Finally, if you'd like to pour your sweetie some wine to add to the romance, you'll find some affordable choices at Pennsylvania Wine and Spirit stores.

"It's not automatically true that you have to spend a lot of money to get great wine," explains Wine Expert Robert Peters. "There is a lot of good value in that $10-$20 range."

Peters suggests a $10.99 Meridian Chardonnay for white-wine lovers and an $11.99 Beaulieu Vineyards Coastal Estates cabernet for those who like red. But his personal favorite for Valentine's Day is a Segura Viudas Aria sparkling pinot noir -- which sells for $12.99.
