Retraction: 1800Flowers 1 month free shipping trick might not work

Yesterday I published “30X Amtrak at 1800Flowers. Here’s why that’s a great deal…”  In that post I showed how to get a fantastic point rebate from 1800Flowers, with the caveat that you have get free shipping for the math to work.  And one of the suggestions I had for getting free shipping was to sign up for Celebrations Passport, then cancel within 30 days.  I originally wrote: Celebrations Passport costs $29.99 per year, but if…

30X Amtrak at 1800Flowers. Here’s why that’s a great deal…

30X Amtrak

Miles Momma reports that Amtrak is offering 30 points per dollar through 1800Flowers.  To get 30X Amtrak points, you must apply promo code AMT56 when checking out.  The offer is good through February 28th. Amtrak points are worth up to 2.9 cents each when used for Amtrak travel.  So, 30 points per dollar is like getting an 87% rebate (30 x 2.9) in the form of Amtrak travel credit.  But it gets better… Spend $50,…

1800Flowers periodically offers 1750 points per order with Southwest Airlines and JetBlue.  When combined with tricks for buying discount gift cards, this has been a good way of indirectly buying miles at a very good price. I’ve written about the recent Southwest offer several times recently, and I published the JetBlue deal on Friday (found here). Somewhere along the way, the Southwest deal stopped working but then came back to life with a new promo…

1800Flowers: How to apply 2 gift cards per order, and a big bug to watch out for

1800Flowers 2 gift cards per order

I had long been under the impression that 1800Flowers.com did not allow more than one gift card to be used per order.  Why?  Because when you click to enter a gift card, you see a message stating “Limit one Gift Card, Voucher, Fresh Rewards pass and/or Saving pass per order.” Seems clear enough. Testing the waters After you enter your gift card information, you should see something like this: GiftCard/Voucher 987654321012345678 has been applied ($20.01…
