#ad #Giveaway $50 Gift Card Saving Money On Date Night

This is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.



With the holidays come and gone, a lot of us are trying hard to save money so we can pay our recent holiday bills. Now for me, that doesn’t mean that I have to stop enjoying things, it just means that I need to be a savvy consumer when the New Year gets rolling and new activities arise.

One thing that my husband and I enjoy is our date nights. We look forward to these, and even though we have cut back on expenses so we can get over that holiday hump, we still take advantage of a night out now and then. Instead of going to a bar or dance hall and spending way too much on drinks, we instead enjoy a very nice night out going to dinner and a movie. With several big movies up for awards showing in theaters, my husband and I look forward to this time of year when we can get out and enjoy a movie together! To ensure we save some money on our date, I like to research the restaurant, join their mailing list and Facebook page, as well as join the VIP club at our local movie theater. That way, I can get their deals or coupons and know when they will be running specials! I also enjoy taking full advantage of sites like Groupon, where I can get a great dinner and a movie deal and not have to worry about overspending.

Another way I try to save is by earning cash rewards with a credit card. One way I do this is by taking advantage of Discover’s rewards program, like the 5% Cashback Bonus program. Now through March 31, Discover cardmembers can sign up to earn 5% Cashback Bonus on up to $1,500 in restaurant and movie purchases. Knowing that I can get up to $75 back just by using my Discover card when my husband and I are out makes the date even more exciting! I can also turn my rewards into extra cash by redeeming my Cashback Bonus rewards for gift cards to several of our favorite restaurants like Outback Steakhouse and Red Lobster. You can also redeem your Cashback Bonus for gift cards to movie theaters, including AMC!





Another big perk of being a Discover cardmember is the current Valentine’s Day promotion through ShopDiscover.com, the company’s exclusive online shopping portal featuring more than 200 popular online retailers. Now through February 14, more than 20 retailers have increased Cashback Bonus amounts just in time for the holiday. We can save on sites like Fandango (10% Cashback Bonus) and Restaurant.com (20% Cashback Bonus), so my husband and I can really enjoy our night out!

So this New Year, make smart choices when it comes to your spending habits and take advantage of all the perks you can get from being a Discover cardmember. To help you pay for your next date night, I will be giving one of my amazing readers a $50 Discover gift card to use on their next night out! Comment below and tell me what perk you like best about being a Discover cardmember!


This giveaway is open to U.S. residents over 18 years of age. I will use a random generator through the giveaway form for a winner.

I like the 5% cash back categories. Sometimes they aren't good for long, but sometimes they have a 5% offer good for 3 months. They had 5% off at all gas stations a year or so ago that lasted for 3 months. I sure saved a lot of money with that deal!

The cash back bonuses are nice if you use a credit card.

My best Valentine's gift was when my hubs got me my Ninja blender! I wanted one so bad, but it just wasn't in my budget. He splurged because he knew how much I wanted it, and how much I could do with it!

My favorite memory is the first Valentine's Day I spent with my now hubby back when we were first dating.

Rayray Cartucci said...

When me and my husband were dating we once went to a nearby city to see a movie and have coffee. We started out at the coffee shop...we were in his PT Cruiser and suddenly out of the back truck area...my sister popped out and scared the heck out of us. It turned into a date night with a crazy third wheel but it was the most fun!!! She is older then me...she was nearly 30 when she did this...she just has a strange sense of humor.

JohnZ said...

One time I gave my wife a GC to Crate & Barrel for $214.xx, whatever the year was.
