Bears, cookies, and miles for Mothers Day


FTD is currently running a promotion in which you can get 1500 Delta SkyMiles per order.  To get the deal, go to FTD via this link:

It’s possible to optimize this by finding the cheapest items with the lowest delivery fees.  The best I could find were bears and cookies:

Love & Hugs Bears by Build-A-Bear Workshop®               image

I Love You Message Bear by Build-A-Bear Workshop®
Item #BB55


Mrs. Fields® Mother’s Day Bites Box
Item #C547

Each of these is $19.99 with delivery as “low as” $10.99.  All-in, each item comes to $30.98.  Using a miles earning credit card to pay, you’ll earn 31 miles on your card plus 1500 miles from FTD.  The total cost per mile comes to almost exactly 2 cents per mile even if you don’t care about the bears or cookies.  While this isn’t the best deal I’ve ever reported, it’s not bad!
