If you’re an iOS user, check out iTunes and you might be interested to see a new category called Valentine’s Deals with Apple Pay. Well, at least I was interested so I took a closer look. And it seems that as an incentive to use Apple pay through your device — which I love anyway — and to download some good retail apps, there are all kinds of Valentine’s Day deals and offers floating around.


-20% off your first Blue Apron delivery for a romantic home-cooked meal at home. (And if you’re a newbie, check out our honest review of Blue Apron first so you know what you’re getting into.)

-25% off participating restaurants when you book through Open Table, if you’re all about eating out next week instead. In fact, you can even pay right through your phone at certain restaurants now, and good ones, too. In NYC alone I’m seeing Locanda Verde, Il Buco, The Dutch, Blue Hill, Gotham…wow. Nice.


-Free gift with purchase at drync (above), which is not a blow dry bar — sorry, at first glance I thought it said DryNYC — but actually a wine app that looks terrific. It’s like Shazam for wine, helping you find wines based on shots of labels you have, then giving you the ability to buy them. The gift looks to be a bunch of fun goodies including a free signed copy of Hungry for Wine.

-$5 Etsy gift card with a $10 minimum purchase on the Etsy app. Love that! Our Valentine’s Day gift guide is filled with great gifts ideas, lots from Etsy as always.

-Free gift with purchase on The Fancy app.

-15% off a lingerie purchase through the ThirdLove app.  Ooh la la.

ThirdLove bra app: guarantees the perfect fit, and now offering deals for Valentine's Day


There’s also a free ship offer for a big national flower delivery chain which you may be excited about, but I can only say that based on my last two purchase experiences with the brand, I won’t be rushing to use it.

Happy saving, friends!
