Ebates is offering 26% cash back today at 1800Flowers. The timing on this offering is great as it will stack with current offers for $15 back on $50 or $10 back on $40 through either Amex Offers or Chase Offers. By stacking the two, you could save around 50% on an order of $40 or $50.
- 26% cash back at 1800Flowers.com through Ebates
- Cash back is not available when using promo codes
In order to make this deal worthwhile, you must get free shipping on the order. There are several ways to do so:
- Enroll in ShopRunner free with Amex (found here), or free with PayPal (found here), or free with World Mastercard (found here).
- Enroll in 1800-Flowers Celebrations Passport at a discount ($19.99 instead of $29.99). Details here.
The advantages of Celebrations Passport over ShopRunner are:
- Celebrations Passport works with 1800Flowers promo codes, ShopRunner does not
- Celebrations Passport offers free shipping for a much larger selection of items than with ShopRunner
Greg caught wind of this increased bonus thanks to this morning’s Frequent Miler Portal Alerts. Unfortunately, portal rewards do not stack with promo codes, so you can not stack this with offers to earn 30x Alaska miles or 1,000 Companion Pass-qualifying Southwest Rapid Rewards points (as found in our guide to Extreme Stacking 1800Flowers). However, this increased cash back rate will stack with credit card rewards, including the latest Amex Offer for $15 back on $50 that expires at the end of March:
If you went through Ebates and spent exactly $50 before shipping, your cost breakdown would look like this:
$50 (1800Flowers order)
– 13 (Ebates cash back)
– 15 (Amex Offer)
$22 final cost
That’s a savings of 56%. You can even save a bit more by paying with an Amex Business card which offers an automatic 5% cash back at 1800Flowers via OPEN Savings.
While 1800Flowers doesn’t offer the cheapest pricing on gifts, it’s certainly convenient for sending gifts to someone out of town, unexpectedly, or even when scheduling something in advance (so you don’t have to worry that you might forget about Great Aunt Annabelle’s birthday). Keep in mind that 1800Flowers brands ship many food items in addition to floral gifts.
Alternatively, you could take advantage of the current Chase Offer for $10 back on $40.
I previously wrote about New Chase Offers & why you might want to wait on activation. That offer has shown in my account for some time. By not activating it, the expiration date has slowly pushed out from 1/3/18 to 2/15/18. If you stack Ebates with the Chase Offers, here’s your math:
$40 (1800 Flowers order)
– 10.40 (Ebates cash back)
– 10 (Chase Offer)
$19.60 final cost
That’s a savings of 51% off their retail pricing.
