ProFlowers discount: $10 off listed prices

ProFlowers Entertainment $10 DiscountFrom my experience, ProFlowers usually have among the best online deals on roses. During last Valentine’s Day they came out price winner according to Judysbook survey. They constantly run all sorts of promotions, like this one for 2 dozen roses and vase for $29.99

The problem with these offers however is that:

  • they are not permanent, with more offers during holiday season and less during other times;
  • they usually make you buy more, while what you really want to do is save.

I have recently stumbled upon this discussion thread at SlickDeals forum where a former ProFlowers employee tells everyone about what appears to be a non-expiring $10 off anything discount at ProFlowers.

The discount is $10 off any order. Proflowers ALWAYS has two dozen roses for $29.99, plus shipping, making this $19.99 for two dozen roses. You can get $10 off any order—it appears at the end, when you enter your payment info. You do not need a coupon code, just use the link. Or, call and tell them you want the Entertainment discount. they will not ask if you are a member!

I worked for Proflowers for a year now, love them and their service. Just left as I am switching careers. The Entertainment discount is the best they have. If you get a new customer service agent, you MIGHT be able to combine with some other deals running, but it varies.

It basically is a link that ProFlowers promotes via Entertainment book which is a third party coupons publisher. The discount is supposed to be for people who bought the book however ProFlowers is not verifying this fact online and hence everyone can enjoy the savings.

To redeem this offer, click on this link and pick your flowers. Once you click on “Buy Now”, make sure this phrase appears at the top of the page: “Take ADDITIONAL $10 OFF all listed prices. Discount will appear upon checkout.”

And treat her to a dinner

Restaurant.com is a place to buy dining certificates at discount. A typical saving is 60% ($25 certificate for $10) and is a good deal if you can find your favorite place in the list. Apply code VALENTINE to sweeten your deal even more. This should give you a $10 certificate with each purchase but somehow I got an instant $5 discount instead, still works for me :-). plus 50% instant discount (thanks to Alison for clearing that out). Offer expires February 17, 2007.
