Cupid’s arrow sure is a pointy one … especially when you’re only 4 days away from the big day and still scrambling for the perfect gift for your sweetheart! Don’t sweat it; while Cupid sits there with that smug look on his angelic face, Babble and Expedia have got your back: One lucky reader has the chance to win 2 $100 Expedia vouchers to help you and your sweetheart (or fave gal pals) get away!
Find out how to enter — and read fun stats about the big day that might cheer up even those anti-Valentiners — after the jump!
To win 2 $100 vouchers to be used for a hotel or package deal on Expedia.com, comment on this post with the most ridiculous Valentine’s Day gift you ever received! Whether it was a Valentine’s Day dinner gone horribly wrong or a bathroom scale (ummm … are you trying to say something?), we want to hear about it!
Now for the fun stuff. According to the “Expedia to the Rescue” survey, which polled 2,236 U.S. adults 18 years of age and older, Valentine’s Day isn’t as big of a deal as we thought! Check out some V-Day facts below:
- We don’t care: 4 out of 10 adults (38% of us!) don’t even celebrate Valentine’s Day
- We forget: 46% of those polled said they had a loved one who forgot about the holiday all together!
- We procrastinate: 54% of adults who celebrate the big day wait until the last minute to plan their Cupid’s holiday
- We don’t need love: 78% of those who have single friends would want to go away with them to celebrate “Non-Valentine’s Day”
The contest is subject to Expedia terms and conditions.
Congratulations to Crystal Marcantonio who won this Valentine’s Day Getaway package courtesy of Expedia! Her worst Valentine’s Day gift was both a cheesy headshot AND having to pay for her own V-Day dinner. That’s rough!
