The countdown to Valentine’s Day is just one day away, but singles that are still searching for their plus-one for the holiday don’t have to be a lone wolf, according to the latest report from www.GoBankingRates.com. The personal finance resource uncovered the top online dating services in the relationship scene that will not only help singles find their Prince Charming or Cinderella, but also save money on a Valentine’s Day date.
Online dating services are a great option for those seeking long-term relationships, but they’re also a fun way to meet new people on Valentine’s Day, especially if saving money is a priority. Go Banking Rates investigates which internet dating services are the most popular and uncovers tips on how to save money when signing up for online dating services, and planning a first date on Valentine’s Day.
The thought of saving money while signing up for online dating services may sound contradictory, but the report finds that some quality relationship sites are actually free, while others offer discount programs, including promo codes and free trials.
Jennifer Calonia, Go Banking Rates’ consumer savings expert notes, “The great thing about using online dating services as way to secure a Valentine’s Day date is that there shouldn’t be any financial expectations to go the whole nine yards. This year people are expected to spend $130 each on Valentine’s Day, but for a first date through an online dating service, having a companion and a simple, yet engaging conversation can be just as rewarding.”
The Go Banking Rates report also identifies three first date ideas under $10.
