LONDON, February 1, 2011 - Is it possible to have a romantic and memorable Valentine's Day on a
budget? Recent VAT increases, spiralling fuel costs and impending interest
rate increases have many consumers watching their pennies.
PriceGrabber.co.uk( R), a part of Experian, announces its list of smart
shopping techniques that can help shoppers woo their significant others
without emptying their pocketbooks this Valentine's Day.

    - Don't overpay to say it with flowers - Avoid overpriced roses and
      choose a different type of flower for a Valentine's Day bouquet this
      year. Tulips or lily's can be just as beautiful but less costly.
    - Cut the cost of chocolates - Take the time to make chocolate-covered
      strawberries at home, instead of buying gourmet chocolate champagne
    - Comparison-shop - Shop for Valentine's Day gifts like perfume,
      aftershave and chocolates on comparison-shopping site likes
      PriceGrabber.co.uk. These sites can help save consumers an average of
      20 percent to 30 percent.
    - Get creative with cards - Make your own Valentine's Day card, or use a
      free e-card website to tell that special someone how much you care.
    - Bring gourmet home - Cook Valentine's Day dinner at home. A few candles
      and a good bottle of wine can make the evening especially romantic
      without crowds and inflated restaurant prices.
    - Set a price alert - PriceGrabber.co.uk allows consumers to set a price
      alert (tinyurl.com/6lfz47y) that sends them an email notification
      when the item drops to their desired price. This is especially helpful
      for big-ticket Valentine's Day gifts like electronics
    - Check for coupons online - PriceGrabber's coupon category
      (www.pricegrabber.co.uk/home_coupons.php/) helps shoppers find
      increased discounts on their favourite Valentine's Day gifts by
      allowing them to search coupons by category.
    - Create a photo book - Make a personalised photo book of favourite
      photos for that special someone.
