1750 Rapid Rewards Points Worth $24.50 for $35 Flower Order

A couple of days ago I wrote about the great mileage offers on flowers that abound around Valentine’s Day. There are 30 miles per dollar offers with United, Delta, American, and Hawaiian.

I noted at the time that you could get a flat 1000 Rapid Rewards points for spending $29.99 or more (plus shipping) at 1-800-Flowers. And that’s pretty good for Southwest.

However there’s a new even better offer out of 1750 Rapid Rewards points for spending $34.99 or more (plus shipping) from 1-800-Flowers with promo code SW46.

You’re still not going to buy flowers just for the points. 1750 points are worth $24.50. And with shipping and handling your total spend will be higher. Don’t expect to earn a companion pass from this promotion alone, you can earn this bonus a maximum of 5 times.

For more expensive flowers purchases 30 miles per dollar with other programs will work out better. But for purchases closer to the minimum required spend this is a great deal.

Terms and conditions:

Prices & discounts are exclusive of applicable service and shipping charges and taxes. Items may vary and are subject to availability, delivery rules, and times. Points can be earned on purchases made online or by calling 1-800-356-9377. Limit of five (5) orders per Rapid Rewards® Member ID/Customer for this promotion. No points will be awarded for more than five purchases on the same Member ID/Customer. Offers cannot be combined, are not available on all products, and are subject to restrictions, limitations, and blackout periods. Offer valid through February 15, 2018. Prices and charges are subject to change without notice. Void where prohibited. © 2018 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, INC.

Member must provide the promotional code SW46 and Rapid Rewards account number at time of purchase to be eligible for the offer. Each order of $34.99 or more (up to the limit of 5 orders per Rapid Rewards Member ID/Customer) will receive 1,750 Rapid Rewards bonus points, excluding service/delivery fees and taxes. Bonus points will not count toward A-List, A-List Preferred, or Companion Pass qualification. Please allow up to eight weeks after your order is delivered for points to post to your Rapid Rewards account. No points will be awarded on cancelled orders. All Rapid Rewards rules and regulations apply and can be found at Southwest.com/rrterms.

  1. Maybe your luck is better, but I have always experienced trouble actually getting miles from 800flowers promos. I always ended up having to follow up several times. And then they say go to the airline and then it’s a hassle to prove everything to them. Between the time spent and the two I never did get I decided it just wasn’t worth it gave up on them.

    Others may fare better, but I’m done with 800 flowers

  2. A few points.
    1. The 5 times limitation is not relevant to whether you can earn a Companion Pass with this promotion — the terms clearly state these miles don’t count toward the Companion Pass
    2. On the shipping question, if you are going to do a few of these it’s worth it to buy the Celebrations Passport, which will give you free shipping for the year for a cost of $20 (it’s usually $30)
    3. Many Amex cards have a promotion of “spend $50 on one or more 1-800-Flowers purchases and get $15 off”
