Consumer Complaints and Reviews
Ordered through the Groupon app where I purchased a voucher. I paid $19.99 for the birthday flowers along with balloons for $5.00. The delivery fee was $18.99 and there were a couple of other fees. My delivery date was set to be delivered on my mother's birthday. No flowers! They were not delivered. I called the following morning and complained. The representative assured me a supervisor would contact the florist to find out what happened. After that the supervisor would be giving me a call. I never received a phone call. Horrible customer service! I had to call them back and I immediately asked for my money back. They issued me a refund. My birthday gift to my mom was a complete disaster. I will be telling all my friends and family NEVER order from them! Just horrible!
Used this flower shop that was connected to the obituary. I don't know if they thought we wouldn't see the flowers since funeral was in NJ and billing was from FL. When we saw the flowers (4 snapdragons, 3 roses, 3 mums, small daisies as fillers) that were delivered we were greatly disappointed. The arrangement was small (not what was ordered) in a regular color woven style basket, shameful. I wrote the company and complained but I have not heard from them. Terrible flowers, terrible customer service.
Fees are OUTRAGEOUS. Ordered a simple 18.00 bouquet of flowers. By the time the purchase was complete with all additional fees, the bill was $54.00. This did not include anything special. Random items were added. I canceled the order before payment processing however, I know that not everyone even pays attention to all this added items. Florist Choice - Multi-Color Item #:BTFC-MULTI39 $17.49. You Saved $12.50. Clear Glass Vase Item #:BTGB-VAS4045 $4.99 Subtotal $22.48. Express Service Fee $9.99, Standard Service $18.99, Care And Handling $2.99, Same Day Service $1.99, Order Total $56.44.
funeral flowers - I was extremely disappointed and embarrassed when I saw the flower arrangement I ordered for my brother's wife. I paid an additional cost to get the larger bouquet. What I received was a small bouquet of flowers. Two of the roses in the bouquet had large brown spots. I will never order from this company again. The total cost for this mess was a little over $100.
I order from this site frequently for events at my job. I had to personally use them when my boyfriend had a fishing accident, and hurt himself. I thought flowers would cheer him up during his excruciating hospital stay. When I arrived at the hospital that evening, the 2 balloons were great - but where were the flowers? They were fresh and gorgeous, but just a small handful - unlike the picture at all.
The vase I ordered was a clear vase in a circular shape looking to be about 7 1/2 inches in the picture - since he is a MAN I wanted clear. The vase that was sent was a small ceramic vase - and it was barely 4 inches tall and in a rectangular shape. It had BUTTERFLIES which were not fitting for a male. He did like the freshness of the flowers, but the presentation looked as if it were being sent to a teenage girl.:'( The name on the order included his surname: "Jr." - so there was no excuse for an interpretation that it was to be sent to a female. The arrangement was overpriced, for what he actually received.

I used Blooms Today to order funeral flowers since their link was provided on the funeral home site. I got an email 4 days later with my cancellation and refund. According to them they contacted all the florists in the area and couldn't find one to deliver which I find hard to believe. Avoid Blooms Today. I will NEVER use them again. VERY angry and disappointed.
I ordered $300 flowers for a Saturday funeral. Flowers were to be delivered on Friday to funeral home; funeral home would transport flowers to service on Saturday. The flowers were never delivered. Blooms Today contacted me on Saturday afternoon, hours after the funeral was over, to tell me that they did not deliver the flowers on Friday. They could offer no reason why the Friday delivery was not made or why they did not contact me sooner.
Ordered flowers for a funeral service to be held on a Monday, flowers were supposed to be delivered on Sat. Received call from family member of deceased an hour before funeral saying they were not there. Called vendor who said "sorry, she is off my list of suppliers". Offered to send flowers to family member with a small discount. Can't recommend this company. Let us down at a difficult time. Do not order from them!!!
I purchased the Groupon voucher - mistake! The order (Original order # **) was processed through a cheap local florist with a known horrible reputation (Minnesota Ave. Florist in Washington DC). The flower arrangement received didn't match what I ordered – not even close, wrong flowers and color. They delivered a small cheap flower arrangement, wrong balloon, no card, and never received the Plant a Tree certificate offered on Blooms Today website at checkout. I gave 2 stars, because Blooms Today reprocessed the order through another florist with better results, but we still never received the customized Plant a Tree certificate that was from her son for Mother's Day. Companies like Blooms Today need to make local florist accountable. They should verify with the florist if they can indeed fill the order exactly!
I made the mistake of ordering a Groupon for Blooms Today (including the ZIP code), only discovering after entering the Groupon code that there were extra fees totaling nearly $30. Have you ever heard of a $30 delivery fee? Scam.
Unhappy with Groupon deal. This Groupon deal was a complete scam. They advertised $40 dollars worth of flowers for $20. All of the flowers on their special Groupon page were more expensive than the ones listed on their website which were all 20% off. You didn't know this until you purchased and entered the redemption code. They also added on $18.99 service fee, $2.99 for "handling" and taxes. When all was said and done my SMALL bouquet still cost me $55.00 out of pocket, which is more than I would have paid NORMAL PRICE on a comparable flower service website. It should be ILLEGAL for them to advertise "50% off" when this is NOWHERE CLOSE TO 50% off. I will never buy from them again.
I ordered flowers for a family that unexpected lost a deeply loved one, but when purchase arrived at the funeral home the vase was broken & they couldn't do anything with it. If it was packaged right it should've never arrived broken & when I called to get a refund, I spoke to a lady that said, "well we can only refund 30% of your purchase", in which on the site is says 100% money back guarantee, well that's a lie. And by the time I got to the bottom of what happened it was too late to order any more flowers because the funeral was today & this happened yesterday... I'm very unhappy!
I ordered my sweetie roses for Valentine's Day. I emailed to check the status and Blooms Today said they contacted all local florist and cancelled my order because no one could deliver today. Could they not have told me that last night when I ordered so I could have made other arrangements. Now NO ROSES NO VALENTINE'S DAY!
The flowers that you prepared were not complete. There were supposed to be 5 white lilies included and there were no lilies in the bouquet at all. I paid for special handling but the covering on some of the flowers was not even removed. This detracted to the look of the rest of the flowers. The flowers that were there were nice but it seemed empty without the lilies.
I paid for expedited shipping to get an arrangement to a funeral parlor for visiting hours. Was guaranteed it would arrive before the services. It didn't. Not sure where the flowers ended up. Called to complain. First offered me just a refund of the shipping fee. Had to further complain to get full refund.
When ordering flowers, they signed me up as a member without my knowledge, a $9.99 charge every month without me knowing it and bill my credit card that amount every month. I called to remove the charges. She said I had to call back in a week to remove the membership charge. I called visa to stop the unwanted charges.
The company had the products I was looking for and when I needed help I was able to ask customer service to provide me with direction and assistance. Product delivered on time and were in good condition at the time they arrived however they did not provide good customer service at delivery. There were many products available but the style of the available products were too similar that it felt like there were few items to choose from. Very expensive for the product received. I can get a much better product at the local florist for a cheaper price and they deliver for free.
They were quick to answer and knowledgeable about the services and products. They gave me great things to use besides what I was looking for. The delivery was fast and on time for the occasion I needed for. I had to pay for shipping but only because I was outside the US. It would have been free if I was home. They had a lot of different variety of things to choose from but I was stuck on this in particular item and I knew what I wanted when I was calling for my services. It was kind of costly. I would have rather pay a cheaper price but because it was a good product and service I was glad I will pay for a better product and service.
Customer service far exceeded my expectations. I can't believe how polite, cooperative, and easy to work with this company was. I would happily do business with them again. There were not many delivery options but they had exactly what I needed and my order arrived promptly as promised. I couldn't believe how reliable they were. I had so much to choose from. I found products that are amazing for many upcoming occasions and I found the perfect flower arrangement that I needed at the moment. It was the first time ever I felt like I got my money's worth from a flower delivery company. The order looked exactly like it did on the website and arrived fresh and damage free.
Their customer service was great, always friendly and helpful. I didn't have one complaint or issues. I would definitely recommend that to anyone. Their delivery options were great anywhere. From next day to a schedule day for birthday or whatever. I was very happy with this part. More variety than I needed. They have more than enough. My order was kinda simple. From what I saw looked like a lot to choose from. The value was excellent.
It was a very good experience and it was a very good job and I enjoyed it. I will shop there again. The delivery options were very good and helpful. I would recommend this to all of my family and friends and we'll use this service in the future and will recommend it. There could have been a little bit more of a variety but I was able to find what I needed and get my order filled. I think that it was a very good value and that they offer some good value for the money.
I ordered flowers for a wake - the one and only time I ordered flowers from Blooms Today. After the customer rep took my information and credit card for payment for the flowers was I then bombarded with all kinds of options for rewards discounts etc. I said no thanks to everything this person asked. I finally got fed up and told the cust rep that I was only ordering flowers for a wake and needed nothing else end of conversations. Next thing we know our credit card is being charged $9.99 for the past 3 months for rewards I never asked for. Unreal. I had to call my credit card comp to file a case. Keep an eye on your credit card statement for a 9.99 charge a month whether you said no or not.
HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE customer service! I ordered flowers and a balloon for my mother's 72nd birthday. They called me the evening of her birthday to inform me that they could not get the flowers delivered that day as promised, but they for sure would deliver them the next day (Saturday). I called my mother to apologize and to assure her that the flowers would get delivered the next day. The EVENING of the next day they called again to say that they could not find a flower shop to adhere to their pricing schedule, and therefore the flowers did not get delivered AGAIN! NOT MY PROBLEM!!! I paid $76 to make this happen. I did my part - they did not!!! RUN, RUN, RUN from this company. DO NOT USE THEM!!!
Beautiful arrangement but ridiculous charges. I'm not sure I would pay to use them again. I don't like the amount of fees they charge to deliver. Expensive for what other companies offer. I think it should be less. I wouldn't use this company again because of their fees. I am not pleased with the way they delivered. They had a decent selection. I was pleased with the arrangements and themes they offered. But compared to bigger brands, they don't have quite as much. But their prices aren't that great either. So overall I was just satisfied. Poor value for the prices and fees they charge. Also the selection is just okay. There are better sites to order floral arrangements. I won't be doing this again.
I didn't really have to interact with much customer service which is a good thing. I didn't have any issues with ordering or anything. It was a bit pricey but not horrible. I've had issues with other services like this but you guys weren't bad at all. To be honest not as good as other flower shops I've walked into and so. It wasn't bad per se but not super great either. Maybe some more exotic options. They are flowers – they died in a week but they were pretty and brought joy but you know it's not like my life was CHANGED by this bouquet.
The customer service was great. Didn't know what I really wanted and they helped pick and put an order together. I / their service to family and friends. They were able to deliver wherever you wanted the arrangement to go. They gave many options on how to send them so they would get there fresh and beautiful. Had no idea what flowers went together. They had such a variety of flowers and helped me arrange them in a price range I could afford. Will definitely try them again for other occasions.
Easy to deal with whenever I have a problem. And also happy to help me when I need it but I usually don't need help because their website is easy to use. I had it delivered to a friend's house and it was on time. My friend received the package at her front door and said everything was in great shape. The bouquet has several different types of flowers. I am not a flower person but it was pretty and colorful. It was a good value. Yes it is expense but when you think about what you are getting it's a great deal compared to some of the others.
They were very kind hearted people. They answered all the questions I had and made my visit very pleasing. I would recommend this company to anyone. I will go back next time I need flowers. They are great. They had quite a few different options for shipping. I enjoyed the choices I could choose from. They were also very good at making sure my flowers were delivered on time at the place I needed them. They had so many different options of flowers. It made it kind of hard in a way to pick some for what I needed. So I just asked for some help and they knew exactly what I needed. For the price I paid the flowers were fantastic. They lasted a very very long time. Still looked the same a week later after they were delivered to the location.
I did not like the customer service. They were slow to respond and did not even help out in the end. I had wasted $100. Though in the end I got a discount. They were fast to deliver the product. It took 3 day to get it, which is great. The delivery person was nice too, even brought it inside my house for me so I did not have to carry it. They have enough different kinds to satisfy anyone really. I love the dark colors – the best. They remind me of my emo days and listening to mcr. Though they could have a option to make your own. The value is either bad or good, depends on what you want. Some of the stuff I liked cost too much I did not want it. But some of the stuff I liked was cheap.
They have great customer service and support! We got great flowers in time for our planting season. They are very helpful when you're selecting the right flowers for our region! The delivery options were very easy to select the right one that got the flower bulbs here in time for planting season! They have a fantastic variety of flowers to choose from! We are very happy with all the flowers we bought! For what we paid for the flowers it was a great value! Other places are higher but this place has flowers for a great price!
