Vermont Tops Champagne Sales, Oregon Leads in Fresh Breath
As part of its "Champagne Toast" promotion, Ibotta analyzed more than 2 million item-level receipts uploaded to the Ibotta app in the two weeks before Valentine's Day in 2016 and 2017, and found that Vermont purchased more champagne per resident than any other state. Across the country, Oregon was busy preparing for some Valentine's Day closeness, leading the nation in gum and mints purchases per person.   

Cheapest Day to Buy Chocolate
Ibotta's Valentine's Day analysis also revealed the best day to buy chocolate this Valentine's Day to ensure a holiday of romance and savings. Based on the same receipt-level study, Ibotta found that chocolate is six percent cheaper six days before Valentine's Day over the last two years, meaning savvy lovers will want to stock up on the sweet stuff on Thursday, February 8.
