They have partnered with florists all over the US in order to have a connection close to you.

Check out this list of top tips and tricks to ordering flowers online to help you decide the best way to send flowers.

The Search Bar

A good flower company will have detailed photographs of different flowers and bouquet options, but you certainly don’t have to search through them all. Use the search tool to find exactly what you need. Do you know you want lilies? Type “lilies” in the search bar and within seconds the store will list every bouquet that includes lilies for you to see. Not sure what flower to search for? Try searching by the occasion. Most online flower companies will have flowers already picked out that are appropriate for certain occasions. Let the experts help you find the perfect bouquet by searching for key words such as “congratulations”, “birthday”, “anniversary”, “Valentine’s Day,” and more.

Coupons and Discounts

Most floral companies will provide discounts either through a customer mailing list or social media. You may also find items that are marked down if you go directly to their site and see what they have available. Blooms Today always has a “Deal of the Day” so that anyone visiting our site can have the option to save some money. Calling the company directly to ask if there are any specials can also be helpful. Customer service representatives are always happy to guide you to the current deals.

Order Flowers Early

Some flower companies will offer same day delivery or next day delivery, but they will often have to charge a delivery fee. If you know ahead of time that you want to send flowers, try to order them in advance. For special holidays that many people celebrate such as Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day, ordering about 7 days or so ahead of time will save you money on delivery and you might even find a great deal.

Weekday Flower Delivery Is Cheaper

Floral companies, unfortunately, have to charge extra for weekend delivery because they have to pay the delivery people higher fees to work those days. consider sending flowers during the week to save you just a little more. A surprise bouquet to a loved one’s place of work will surely be just as appreciated as a bouquet sent to the home.

Buy Seasonal Flowers

Online flower delivery companies who work with florists are always up-to-date on what flowers are in-season and fresh. Blooms Today offers a Florist Choice bouquet. This gives you the option to not only let a flower expert create the perfect bouquet for you, but it also ensures that the recipient will be gifted only the strongest and longest lasting flowers available at that time.

Sending  flowers to the people you love can be fun, easy, and affordable. As one of the best ways to show someone that you care, consider choosing online flower delivery for you next purchase.
