1,031 people respond: How they spent money on Valentine’s Day

February 24th, 2008 - 7 Comments

[Update: Check out Slide #5. It's hilarious how the percentage of men and women who bought "intimate apparel" is...equal.]

A few days ago, I asked you how much you spent on Valentine’s Day. With 1,031 responses, here’s the analysis (RSS readers, click here to see the slides).

  1. Just FYI, your link to FindABetterBank points right back to you.

  2. Great survey, Ramit. Interesting results. So is there anything to take away from this? You got a take on the results?

  3. Good stuff. I’m a little disappointed that so few women buy flowers for their significant others. What happened to gender equality?

  4. $6 for cards? That seems excessive – what kind of card costs $6?

  5. I initially spent 26 bucks on a manny and a peddy. I found $1225.00 in the parking lot of the nail salon and spent another $200 on flowers and dinner. :)
