Valentine's Day is right around the corner and you're either counting down the days to your romantic date (unlikely) or dreading seeing PDA everywhere you look (much more likely). Either way, these specials are probably better than your (non-existent) boyfriend. Here are the chain restaurants that are offering Valentine's Day deals this year: 


Impress your significant other by ordering something off the Valentine's Day secret menuStarbucks is offering the Valentine Frappuccino, a three layered frapp with strawberries and cream, vanilla bean and raspberry pumps. They are also adding the Love Bean Frapp (pictured above) and the Java Berry Frapp. Don't worry, they're both topped with bright pink whipped cream.

Some McDonald's locations are taking reservations for Valentine's Day and offering candlelight table service. That'll surely put you in the mood. 

Shake Shack 

Shake Shack is offering a BOGO type deal, assuming you've got a date by your side. If you order a milkshake on Valentine's day, they promise to hook your sweetie up with a free shake too.

Pucker up in Qdoba because they're offering free burritos if you kiss someone, and I mean anyone — they don't give a crap who it is. Kiss your lover or kiss the person behind you in line (not recommended if you're with your date). 

Dairy Queen 

No, I didn't forget about all the single ladies. DQ is offering a Singles Blizzard during the month of February. It includes chocolate soft serve, salted caramel truffles, Reese's peanut butter cups, and peanut butter topping. Warning: this Blizzard includes a lot of chocolate. Stay away from this aphrodisiac if you're single AF this Valentine's Day. 

Never let your date tell you red roses, Ghirardelli chocolate, and an expensive candlelight date are better than any one of these chain restaurant deals. Someone out there will appreciate your resourcefulness, savviness, and money-saving persona sometime honey. And now, thank god, we've got another 365 days till Valentine's Day 2018.
