Our Verdict

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:

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.

I just buy 20 gift cards in $500 and end up to pay about $100 for the fee. Done.

Ben I’m confused about what you did based on the offer being discussed. Its 1750 Southwest points per orders over $29.99. What is your reasoning to buy the gift cards?

A couple of questions:
Do I need to be a southwest credit card holder to take this offer? I didn’t see the terms.
Can you use the code for your second order?

Thanks
Jesson

No, you do not need to be a Southwest CC holder, just a Rapid Rewards member.
You can use this code as often as you want.

Don’t forget to join Passport for free s/h for a year ($30, but you can use the Amazon Local offer to make it $15 plus get cash back on the Amazon Local purchase via a portal).

I was able to use a Discover Cash Back reward ($20 for a $30 certificate) to an order and add the RR36 code.

i tried the discover cash back reward but i’m not sure it will qualify. I notice after the certificate it says my total is 0 so my not sure if it meets the minimum requirements of 29.99. Also when i look at the receipt i don’t see it mention the promo code.

Doesn’t seem to work on their partner sites unfortunately – tried on popcorn and nuts and the code didnt apply. Only 1800flowers.com apparently.

Doesn’t this paragraph from the Companion Pass section of the Rapid Rewards Terms and Conditions page disqualify the 1750 point “bonus” as a way of getting to the Companion Pass?

Companion Pass Qualifying Points are earned from revenue flights booked through Southwest Airlines, points issued on Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Credit Cards, and points earned from Rapid Rewards Partners. Points purchased for personal use or as a gift, transferred points, points earned from program enrollment, tier bonuses, flight bonuses, and Rapid Rewards Partner bonuses (with the exception of the Rapid Rewards Credit Cards from Chase) do not count toward Companion Pass status.

So I purchased the Celebrations Passport (1 Year of Free Shipping for $29.99) from 1-800 Flowers.com via the SavingStar Portal and managed to snag $12.00 cash back. Or at least the $12.00 cash back is pending in SavingStar.

Given how expensive shipping is for 1-800 Flowers.com (at least $12.99 per order), I’d definitely recommend clicking through SavingStar to get a year of free shipping for $17.99 if you plan on making more than one purchase from 1-800 Flowers.com.

Based on my experience the shopping portal bonuses are not stackable with the RR36 promo code.
