It's Valentine's Day....!


It's that time of year again to appreciate your favorite loved ones and significant others.  But, relax, it doesn't have to be a big stress.  Let the many flower services do the hard work for you.  While you are at it, get some miles, points, or cash back, too!

If you have a favorite provider like 1-800-Flowers, or FTD, check to see what promotions are running before you plunk your cash down.  Among many other deals, eBates is offering 20% cash back on FTD purchases.  That's awesome.  Given that flowers can run $35-50 with delivery/service fees, that definitely helps.  Don't want cash back, your favorite airline is definitely having a miles earning bonus, too.  Visit their site before buying and you might be awarded with not only a big kiss from your sweetie, but a bounty of miles.  Definitely see if there is a coupon, too, to save even more.

Bonus tip: depending on when you order your flowers for delivery, you might save a few bucks on the delivery/service fee.  Obviously, February 14 is preferable, but if she's flexible, you might save a few bucks by delivering them a day earlier, with a promise of dinner next day.

Happy Valentine's shopping.
