Valentine’s Day by the Dollars02.13.14

The average tax refund comes in at around $3,000 according to IRS data. The IRS started accepting returns on January 31. So if you’re due a refund, you’re likely to get it right around Valentine’s Day. Wondering what those refund dollars could buy for your love? A lot of candy hearts for starters!

Let’s take a look at what $3,000 could buy in the name of love:

  • 750 one-pound bags of candy hearts.
  • A dozen red roses will cost you about $80. Therefore, you could get your significant other 444 red roses (although we can’t promise they’ll think it was a wise investment.)
  • 100 boxes of deluxe Valentine’s Day chocolates.
  • 30 one-hour massages.
  • A trip for two to the Caribbean (now there’s a gift with some heat!)

And hey, don’t forget the pets. Your four-legged friend could get a Louis Vuitton dog carrier, or a whole lot of catnip.  

And if you’re going solo this Valentine’s Day, no worries, that’s just more chocolate for you!
