Americans are expected to shell out nearly $19 billion, averaging more than $142 per consumer (NRF), while the recent trend for buying smart tech for your Valentine could push these predictions towards $20 billion.  "Traditional Valentine's Day gifts will always be a top choice, but the last couple of years have shown increased tech deals being offered by retailers during these holiday sales events," stated FatWallet spokesperson, Brent Shelton. "FatWallet members will take full advantage of stores offering increased cash back and bonus gift cards to make iphones, iPads and other electronics more affordable gifts for their loved ones."
