Bloomex Flowers Online Orders - Discounts? YMMV!!!

Hi, not really a sure thing, YMMV as stated, but I've placed a half dozen orders for flower delivery through Bloomex since 2019,and thought this might be timely, with Mother's day coming up.

From my experience, if you create/have an account and place items in your cart (including delivery address and shipping date/time) and then close out before check-out, you likely will get an email reminder with a discount offer that can be combined with any special pricing already on your items. This happens consistently for me, 20% extra off seems standard!

Hope this is of some use to a few!

Says a lot about the company. 20% overcharge to most customers. Suckers to them I guess. It's like getting a quote for a job; refusing it and then the guy saying ok, I'll do it cheaper by 20%. No thanks.

Bloomex is an absolutely trash company. Use Costco or another place that offers delivery if you can.

That's how the world works buddy. People have to make a profit, and it is your goal to negotiate or find a better deal.

Many sites do this. These coupons are public with a simple google search.

This isn't a good deal or anything. Go to Bloomex, add something to the cart, wait an hour max and they will send you a coupon.

With that being said, Bloomex is known as a bad company when it comes to floral arrangements. They are super cheap in terms of prices, but you also get super cheap quality.

Their vendors are local shops that are commissioned by Bloomex. Because of the small amount paid, they cheap out on arrangments, and their name not being liable, they provide a super low-quality service.

Just buy local.

Just wanted to add, I've been very satisfied with Bloomex, both service and quality. My orders have been for delivery out of town for the most part, so shopping local is not an option. and whenever I've bought similar arrangements in person, the quality to value ratio I've seen is not better. Not shilling, thought posting this would be helpful.

It’s like everything else
Sometimes a PERCEIVED BARGAIN ... IS NOT A GOOD DEAL AT ALL
It’s just overpriced junk

Bloomex has that reputation

Quality Flowers are like other goods & services
You get what you pay for
Choose a reputable florist
You get good stuff

I have bought truly BEAUTIFUL floral arrangements for occasions like Christmas, Mother’s Day, Birthdays etc
And the truly good ones will last 3 to 4 weeks
With proper care ... frequent water changes, trimming, and cut flower nutrients

Versus 5 to 10 days for crappy flowers

Not cheap, but at a $ Dollar to Day Ratio ... far more inexpensive

Why do people continue to do business with these jokers? The scams they pull have been well documented and publicized.
