Although Valentine’s Day takes place in the heart of winter, fall is truly the most romantic time of the year. And nobody can convince us otherwise!

Fall is the start of shorter days and longer nights. Its brisk “sweater weather” brings couples closer together. And you don’t have to travel far for gourd-geous scenery. The fall foliage alone offers breathtaking views.  

All these factors should naturally entice you and your partner to spice things up. And what better way to do that than by going on a date (or 10)?

Scroll on for a list of affordable date ideas that’ll have you two falling in love all over again—and earning cash back!


1. Throw a pumpkin-carving party for two.

This autumnal activity will put your creative skills to the test. If you have what it takes, order this four-piece carving kit from Ace Hardware and rake in 4% cash back. Then pour yourselves some cider and get to work.

2. Attend a football game.

There’s nothing more entertaining than watching America’s favorite sport live (except for, perhaps, tailgating). You can purchase college football or NFL tickets at Vividseats.com and get up to 4% cash back today.

3. Spend a night in a cabin.

4. Tour a brewery.

5. Snuggle by the fire pit.

No need to shutter yourselves inside on cold nights. Warm up by an outdoor fire, preferably with blankets and two mugs of hot cinnamon tea. Hampton Bay’s best-selling Piedmont 30-inch steel fire pit is only $149 at The Home Depot—and comes with up to 12.12% cash back.

6. Watch a scary movie.

What can possibly be romantic about horror movies? Easy. Jump scares give you an excuse to grip on tight to your partner or nestle into their embrace.

Buy a Fandango gift card from us and score 6.75% cash back. Then use it to pay for tickets to see “The Exorcist: Believer” or the latest “Saw” installment. (You’ll enjoy extra touching if you spring for one bucket of popcorn.)

7. Go on a picnic.

Dining “out” doesn’t have to be at an expensive restaurant. Pack up your favorite foods and beverages and set off to your local park with a large blanket in tow. This $49.99 picnic basket from Walmart includes a full set of tableware and up to 10% cash back.

8. Go horseback riding.

Taking a drive to see the fall foliage just isn’t as exhilarating as riding on horseback through a wooded trail. You can search for private tours on Viator and snag 12% cash back on your booking.

9. Have a game night.

"I Should Have Known That" trivia game

While you’re shopping for the picnic basket at Walmart, add the multi-player trivia game “I Should Have Known That” to your cart. It contains over 400 common-knowledge questions that’ll have you both laughing and muttering “I should’ve known that” all night.

10. Hold a pie-making contest.

A little friendly competition won’t hurt anybody—especially if it involves food. Have a pie bake-off with your loved one and taste each other’s creation at the end to decide the winner. You can order ingredients through Instacart and nab up to 15.15% cash back.
