Update: Ebates is no longer offering 32% cashback, but many portals are still offering high payouts and so it’s still possible to stack offers for high savings.
Ebates is offering 32% cash back on 1-800-Flowers orders today. That’s a really nice deal if you’re looking to order flowers/gifts as it stacks with the Current Amex Offers and should also stack with the Dosh app for a pretty significant savings. Note that portal Lemoney has increased its rate to 35%, so you could potentially get an even better deal. However, I’ve read mixed reviews as to Lemoney’s reliability – YMMV.
- Ebates is currently offering 32% cash back on orders at 1-800-Flowers. That stacks nicely with a couple of other deals for big savings.
- Direct link to sign up for an account with Ebates if you’re new to Ebates (if you’re new, you can earn a $10 bonus when you make your first purchase of $25 of more)
This deal makes for a nice stack with either of the Current Amex Offers for 1-800-Flowers. Some (business) cards have an offer for 10% back at 1-800-Flowers. Other (personal) cards are targeted for $15 back on $50.
Furthermore, you can link your Amex card to the Dosh app for an additional 15% back on 1-800-Flowers purchases.
While the Dosh app makes it look like you need to tap their link to shop, they previously announced that online offers no longer require you to shop through their links (which I confirmed with my own orders in December), you just need to link your card number to Dosh prior to purchase — See: Dosh: Now stack card-linked offers with portals. If you’re new to Dosh feel free to sign up with my referral link (code: NICHOLR92) with my thanks. In the past, I think you could receive $5 when you signed up and verified a credit/debit card and so would I.
However, it’s no longer clear on my end whether or not you will receive a bonus for signing up. Dosh makes this deal better, but my calculations below do not include any bonus for signing up. Update: Reader Neil confirms that he signed up for Dosh with my referral and still received the offer to get a $5 bonus when linking his first card. That makes this deal even better if you’re new to Dosh.
Assuming you have the offer for a $15 statement credit with a purchase of $50 or more, you could save a total of 77% off. Here’s how:
- Sync the Amex Offer to your Amex card
- Link that Amex card to your Dosh account
- Click through Ebates to 1-800-Flowers
- Make a purchase of $50 (before taxes, shipping, etc)
- Earn $16 cash back from Ebates (32% back)
- Get $15 back from the Amex Offer
- Get $7.50 back from Dosh (15% back)
- Net cost = $11.50
If you were additionally new to Ebates, your net cost comes down to $1.50. If you’re also new to Dosh, this is a $3.50 money-maker (before considering tax & shipping, which can surely make a difference).
While the flowers and gifts at 1-800-Flowers and associated brands may be overpriced, paying $11.50 for $50 in flowers/gifts certainly doesn’t sound too bad if you’re looking to get a gift delivered.
