Date night.  We’ve talked about it before: how important it is, how you can save money on a babysitter, or even ways you can nix a babysitter altogether.

There are so many ways to make date night happen, even on a small budget, but one of my favorite ways is to use Groupon.

How To Use Groupon To Save on Date Night

For An In-Home Date Night…

For starters, if you want to have an at-home, no-babysitter date, you can use Groupon Goods to give each other affordable gifts (for instance, on one of the first pages, there’s a set of whiskey rocks for $9. Awesome!)  This is especially great if your partner’s love language is gift giving.  If my husband is reading this, I’m kind of a fan of these elephant watches…

Or, you could get something to do together.  For instance, if you enjoy playing video games together, Groupon Goods often has video games (and consoles) on sale.  You can also find cookbooks and make something new together for dinner or for dessert!

Do you love going for runs with your husband? Groupon has Fitbits available at a discount so you can get fit together… or have a friendly competition of who can get the most steps in a day.

And, of course, they have movies (especially new releases) that are deeply discounted, which would make a perfect date night when combined with some snacks.  Personally, I have my eye on the Hunger Games complete movie collection (confession: I haven’t seen the last one yet!)

For An Out-On-The-Town Date Night…

If you’re more interested in getting out of the house together, they have plenty of fun things to do.  We’ve actually used it before (we went to an arcade together :)) but when I looked today, I found SO MANY deals that I want to use on our next date night!  Here are just a few of my favorites:

  • Introductory flight classes
  • Go-karting
  • Ferrari or Lamborghini driving experience (I know my husband would love this :))
  • Archery lessons
  • Sushi classes
  • Theme park passes
  • Corn maze passes
  • Dueling piano bar admission

One thing I love about Groupon is that it really expands my horizons as far as date nights go.  There are things I would never have considered doing if they weren’t offered on Groupon, and I’d probably just stick to the typical dinner and/or movie date.

In addition to all this, you can typically find Groupon discount codes to make your purchases an even better deal (and/or get 1% cashback at SwagBucks).  Sometimes the codes are on the website itself, or you can Google “groupon discount codes”, or follow them on Facebook or Twitter to be the first to know about special offers.

Great ideas! I love Groupon. My husband and I just got to take FLYING LESSONS together because of Groupon. I never thought we could do that.. and definitely didn't think it would be affordable.
