We’ll be recommending our top 3 apps which will help you to find discounts that you can use this Valentine’s Day, so that you can organise your romantic date without breaking the bank.

With these filters in place, you’ll be able to find somewhere close by which is highly rated and within your price range. This app is one of the best you can get for finding cafés and restaurants near you that would be ideal for a date, so don’t miss out.

If you and your date are foodies, chances are that you’ll be considering going to a restaurant. This is a setting which is more intimate and therefore better suited to people who have been dating for a while, however there’s a reason why this is a classic choice. A candlelit dinner allows for a chance to connect through one-to-one conversation plus you get to enjoy some delicious food. What’s not to love? While restaurant bills can quickly become pricey, there are ways that you can cut down on costs by finding a good deal. Our recommendation for finding restaurant deals in your area is Groupon. This app is already many people’s go-to for local food and attractions deals, and as such there are plenty of offers on Groupon for restaurants, making it an ideal app to use on Valentine’s Day.

Ever thought about going to a gig for a date? While this might seem intense if you’re in the early stages of dating someone, a gig is actually an ideal setup. The reasons for this include that you can impress your date with your musical taste if you’re really into certain genres, the loud music conveniently makes it difficult to have awkward small talk and you can enjoy the atmosphere with someone else. If you and your date are music fans, take a look at the Dice app. This app makes it easy to get tickets for concerts, gigs and other events in major cities in the UK. Whether you want to go to the biggest arenas or to a small club around the corner, Dice makes it simple to get your tickets, with options to be on waiting lists and without additional booking fees.
