Be The Best Hubby Ever With These 12 Great Valentine’s Day Promos

“Valentine’s Day was reportedly created by capitalists looking to cash in on hopeless romantics who’ll grab any opportunity to profess their love for their significant other by way of gifts, dates, and other expensive gestures.”

If you’re in a relationship, the above statement is definitely not the way to answer once your partner asks you, “So, where are we going on the 14th?” And don’t just stare at them either. Be a Boy/Girl Scout and be prepared for this eventual grilling. Furthermore, be a smart spender and go through our list of the best V-Day deals being offered by credit cards before you make any decisions.

Now, to make the gesture even more romantic, use the element of surprise. Island Rose, one of the most trusted flower suppliers in the country, has an online service that delivers straight to the woman of your dreams.

Gift her with a day of relaxation at the spa or that beauty treatment she’s been dying to get. Or you can opt to pamper her in a different way, like with a bag and shoes shopping spree.

Relax and romance with Metrobank

Valentine’s Day can be quite a bane to Metro Manila-based lovebirds. The roads and restaurants are clogged, while private couple stops like hotels and motels also tend to get fully booked. To some, a stay-at-home date is the smart, albeit last resort, option. But that shouldn’t always be the case. Up the ante of whatever romantic plans you’ve got by heading out of your house, and going to the country’s best beaches.

Whatever you cook up on V-Day, just remember that it won’t mean a thing if you’re doing it just to impress your better half. Pick an activity that you can actually afford and one that you both will enjoy. You don’t need to break the bank on just one date, but you also have to choose one that will produce memories that you can fondly look back until you’re both old and grey.

And don’t fret if you can’t go out on the 14th for whatever reason, there are plenty of days to make up for it. Or you can at least give each other something even if you can’t meet—because of conflicting schedules, geographical constraints, etc. For instance, Zalora is currently offering a 12% discount for purchases made with several credit cards (with a minimum spend of ₱500). All you have to do is type in the promo code of your card (MCC12 for Metrobank, SBANK12 for Security Bank, BDO2017 for BDO, AUBZ12 for AUB Credit Cards, or EWZ12 for EastWest Bank Credit Cards.

Have a happy Heart’s Day!
