Southwest Now Offering 1,750 Points Per $29.99+ Order With 1800-Flowers
- Spend $29.99 or more on with 1800-Flowers and use the promotional code RR36 and you’ll receive 1,750 Southwest points
The Fine Print
- Valid until February 14th, 2015
Update: It looks like some people have a $15 off coupon in their Paypal accounts, I assume this doesn’t stack but if it does let us know in the comments.
For those wanting to get the Southwest companion pass and are 6,000 points short, this is a relatively cheap way of getting those points. At most it would cost you $119.96 and you’d end up with 7,000 Southwest points (worth $98 in flights). You can do much better by stacking though. When it comes to 1800-Flowers, Frequent Miler is the king. He has a good series of posts that I’d recommend reading:
- Preparing for 100 miles per dollar
- 1800Flowers portal claw back
- Experiment results exceed expectations
- Increasing rewards beyond 50X
- 30 points per dollar, but I’m still waiting for more
- How to feed the hungry and fly for free

I think this quote from him sums it up nicely on how to maximize this bonus currently.
- Credit card rebates: Amex business cards offer 5% cash back. Plus, Amex frequent has special offers for 1800Flowers in which they’ll give you $15 back on an order of $50 or more. Discover often has a similar offer: $10 back on an order of $39.99 or more.
- Celebration Rewards (previously named Fresh Rewards): This is 1800Flowers’ own rewards program. As long as you’re signed up for this, you’ll earn one point per dollar for each order. 200 points results in a $20 savings pass that can be used for future orders.
- ShopYourWay Rewards: This is the Sears / Kmart rewards program. By linking your Visa or MasterCard credit card, you can earn ShopYourWay Rewards points with each 1800Flowers order. Currently they are offering 20% back in points, but in December they offered as much as 40% back in points! It’s worth checking the current rates here.
- Taxes: If you donate food or other items from 1800Flowers to a charity, it is possible to save on taxes as a charitable donation.
