    I've used them a lot over the years. I had 2 dozen red roses sent to my girlfriend's office today. I got an email this morning saying they selected me to receive a free upgrade to long stem roses which was cool. They got there and didnt look too great so i called an bitched. They offered a FULL refund or to send another shipment. I opted for the refund since i already bought other shit, but i was pretty impressed. No questions asked!

    I've used them twice in the past, but I upgraded to some really nice arrangements. Both times they delivered on time and the recipients both said they were gorgeous flowers.

    Use it all the time. Used Personal Creations this time which is an offshoot. You can get personalized faggy shit that wives love. I got her a framed sand heart with our names in it. Morning BJ's rule...

    Maybe it's YMMV. I had TERRIBLE experiences with them. They end up charging MUCH more than their advertised special pricing, and the delivered flowers were just awful, skimpy, poorly arranged, and dying. I will never use ProFlowers or 800 Flowers again. These days I just call around to florists near the location of the recipient. It takes a little longer but you get much more knowledgeable and attentive service....

    Just so you know, 1800 Flowers is literally just a middle man. They are extremely handy if you are delivery flowers to an area you are not familiar with, but all they really do is locate the closest florist to your delivery area and order through them. If you ever wanted to save a couple bucks, just google the local florist and order directly.

    I've used them too, by the way. Sometimes it's worth it just for the convenience.

    I have used Proflowers in the past, but this year I used Teleflora because there was a Groupon for them. 25 bones for $50 worth of flowers.

    Pretty good deal. They rape the shit out of you in delivery fees on V-day though.

    I don't get it. you ordered flowers for your lady friend, they sent dog shit flowers, you had to call and bitch, and you're thankful they refunded your money?. do you also apologize if someone farts in your general direction? :scratch:
