Like me, you may have tried in vain to get past the $15 service and delivery charge that popular florists like ProFlowers charge. Well, the good news is that we found a way to get free delivery at ProFlowers.com
Hidden on their on-site coupon page, there is currently a link to an entire page of bouquets that ship free on weekdays from Monday to Thursday. It actually works too, as I just tried it out!
Free shipping feels so good on your face!
2 Dozen roses – $30 with free shipping at ProFlowers
You’ve probably heard the saying, “there’s no such thing as a free lunch,” which is true, and that usually applies to the high delivery fees charged by online florists. However, sometimes you find a hole in The Matrix which gets you a great deal; in this case, the unheard of “white buffalo” that is “free shipping” at a major online florist.
So, as I mentioned, I just found such a deal; sending a bouquet of 2 dozen roses that would have cost me about $45, but subtract the shipping and service charge, and it dropped my total to $30!
The only time their free shipping coupon didn’t work immediately
So, I’ve already used the free delivery link twice on a couple of nice bouquets of roses, but would it work on their cheapest bouquet? I tried adding their $19.99 roses to my cart, and all was well until the last checkout screen where i saw that the pesky shipping charges had reappeared.
Knowing that the promotion should include all flowers on the designated “free shipping” page, I gave ProFlowers.com a call. They told me to place the order, and then they manually took off the $15 delivery charge. (I had to confirm my order number and shipping address with them) A dozen mixed roses delivered next day for $20? You can’t beat that!
