Ordered flowers for my wife for our anniversary just to get a email the day of saying they do not have the flowers in stock so to contact them for a second choice. I called them and they told me they could not send out flowers because the florist has no other flowers to send. The only thing they were willing to do was cancel the order and refund my money. So the day of my anniversary I have to try and find flowers somewhere else. I won't be doing business with them again.
Just like I now see everyone else has described, this is a HORRIBLE company to deal with. I saw a Groupon coupon for $30 worth of flowers for just $14 and I needed to order some flowers for a sick friend. Before I bought the coupon I went onto the ProFlowers.com website and found exactly what I wanted and put it into my cart. I went through ALL of the steps and even checked out, to the point where all I had left to do was enter any discount codes and my credit card info to pay. My order came to $44.98 and they showed that total in the invoice that the site presented, asking me to enter my payment details as the final step. I was ok buying the $14 Groupon deal that got me $30 towards the flowers and then paying the $14.98 left over amount, so I went ahead and bought the Groupon coupon. I went back into my flower order and applied the coupon code and then submitted all of my payment details to pay for the order.
It was only AFTER I submitted my payment info that I suddenly saw that the final price shot up to over $66.00. WHAT??? How can that be? How can they show one price, have you fill out ALL the details of the order, including payment info, and only then add in over $22 of undisclosed fees (taxes, handling, delivery, etc)?SO dishonest and shady. Really unethical business practices for sure. And now I read that everyone is also complaining that the flowers usually arrive late, if at all, and that they usually look beaten up and not like what they show online. So basically they rip you off and then send a bunch of crap. WHY does the Better Business Bureau and Consumer Affairs allow this to continue with SO many complaints against them?
And I love how the banner at the top of the ProFlowers website boasts that they have "the highest customer satisfaction with online flower retailers for 4 years in a row, according to J.D. Power". I'm guessing that the J.D. Power they must be referring to is the owner's neighbor, or someone he knows with the same name as the reputable retail business ranking service (LOL), or HOW could JD Powers ignore the hundreds & hundreds of complaints and that ProFlowers has only a 1.5 star rating on almost every consumer feedback site I have seen? Everyone seems to pretty much agree that ProFlowers.com SUCKS!!!
I make simple purchase online 1 dozen rose, delivery date May 10. Dead box, wrong flower show up, Father's Day. I call for customer's support. I talk to 13 yr old girl from my home Bangkok. She know nothing about flower. I hang up. I done. No more ProFlowers. No pro. Amateur flower.
I bought these flowers as a surprise for my wife's anniversary and they were NOT delivered!!! Called the next day to ProFlowers and found out the delivery person delivered them to who knows where, without any signature!!! Ruined my anniversary since it was a surprise and since my wife didn't receive anything on her anniversary it looked like I completely forgot!!!
I ordered flowers for my mother-in-law's birthday. The flowers I chose from the website did not look anything like what was delivered. I contacted JustFlowers because I was extremely upset and dissatisfied. I have been given the runaround. After a week and a half, the customer service department said they would gladly refund $7. I paid $75 for a arrangement that looks like a $20 arrangement put together by a 10 year old. This company does not stand by their guarantee. I have asked to speak to a manager and have never gotten through. DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING FROM THIS WEBSITE. It is a total joke. The pictures below reflect what I choose from the website and what was delivered. Granted the flowers didn’t last 7 days.

I ordered my wife some flowers from ProFlowers (rainbow Roses). The first order was on time but all but 4 Roses never bloomed. They were tended to by following the directions (we have ordered Roses before and know how to tend them). I called to discuss the issue and opted for them to be resent instead of a refund. The second order was a hot mess. The flowers were beat up with several roses having been broken during shipping. The box of chocolates was completely melted into 1 nasty blob. I will not waste my time and money on a third try with this company. I will go back to using local florist and get flowers the same day and be able to address issues in person.
Selection shown online does not match actual delivery in quality. Delivery undependable and virtually non-existent. Customer service not a service, many cannot even speak English clearly. Will never use again.
They hit you delivery and service charges that cost three times as much as the purchase. The flowers themselves were small and dry. They didn't last 3 days.
I like ProFlowers but they recently increased their prices which I think are too high and they charge for extra things like delivery on a Monday. When I first used them they were reasonable. Now they are expensive like 1-800-Flowers so I will look for another flower shop next time I order flowers.
The last two times I used this service, I've had terrible experiences and won’t be using ProFlowers again. The flowers would be shipped from your Texas location to Richmond, CA and show leaving the UPS shipping facility in my area at 8am. The problem is they wouldn't arrive to their destination until 3-4pm. These are flowers! They are perishable! They shouldn't be arriving at the end of the day, and by the time they do, they are on the verge of dying. Very unprofessional. I complained about this last time and received a discount off my order. I then tried giving you the benefit of the doubt and ordered again hoping for a better result. I received the same result as before. Therefore, I will no longer be using your services. You can’t charge someone a premium and then fail when it comes to providing the service you say you “deliver”. Maybe think about getting a better shipper.
The cost is horrible for the service you get. You get boxed dead flowers that you have to assemble yourself making it a crap gift for someone with terrible presentation. My husband sent me Valentine flowers last year with them and he come home took one look at them, (he used to work at a florist as a young person) now he’s a professional. He was very upset. I can see why but it’s not about the flowers. He’s amazing for the effort. But for ProFlowers. I wouldn’t ever bother. The delivery person was a dry acting jerk when delivering the stupid box. The whole experience is nothing like when I was young and my grandfather and family used to send my grandmother these grand bouquets of roses that were magnificent and delivered with smiles and surprise and heart. Not nowadays. Sad.
When you make a purchase, you have to understand that there will be plenty of service costs. For example, a standard delivery cost can be as high as $15.00. If you desire a certain color vase, an upcharge of $7.75. Taxes, service charge all add up almost doubling the amount of the order.
The shipping cost is the reason I no longer use any of the flower delivery services. I can get fresh flowers at my big box stores for half the cost as the flower delivery services.
ProFlowers have arrangements for any occasion. I sent flowers to family, and they were pleased with the arrangement. I stopped because shipping fees cost more than the arrangement.
I ordered the Mother's Day Spectacular with Ginger Vase and Chocolates for $19.99, plus Mother's Day greeting card for $1.99, for Mother's Day 2018. The shipping and handling was divided into three fees: $12.99 for standard delivery, $14.99 for guaranteed May 13 delivery, and $2.99 for care and handling, coming out to $30.97 total. The irises and star lilies never bloomed at the same time. By the time that even a couple of the star lilies had fully bloomed, the irises had turned to mush, and many of the star lilies were completely closed. That said, the delivery did come on time, and both the irises and star lilies were very pretty when they were each in bloom.
Ordered a Get Well plant for a sick co-worker. Had to wait 4 days before they could deliver and what was delivered was nothing like what I had ordered in the picture. I am embarrassed to have this delivered to a friend. Cost was $67. I have included the pictures of what I ordered and what was delivered. Pic with stick is the delivered plant. Never again will I use this company.
The flowers weren't as pretty in person as they were online. We weren't really happy with the purchase. I find it easier to physically go to the flower shop myself and purchase the flowers.
Our sister-in-law was recuperating in a rehabilitation home and was thrilled with the Angel tree. Even at the end on January it was still green and thriving.
Late delivery and flowers looked used. Difficult to deal with and have not Used again. Do not recommend. They really need to up their pride and ability to serve.
The pricing ended up higher than what I asked for and my delivery was free. I also had a discount for being a first time buyer. The representative had a thick accent and couldn’t understand me. I had to repeat the delivery address 4 times. I asked for a specific vase and the flowers were delivered in a box. The flowers were pretty and lasted.
I received a planter of bulb flowers from my coworkers after I had surgery. The pictures showed a beautiful bouquet of tulips, daffodils & other pretty flowers. After 2 weeks I have a sorry sad planter of droopy plants with 3 daffodils. Sorely disappointed. I don’t think my coworkers would appreciate seeing what a sad sack of flowers I received. NOT recommended!
Once service charges were added, it became a very expensive option. Flowers were pretty but did not live long once placed in vase and water. Service charge I felt was extremely high, and this lowered my satisfaction with the product.
My husband sent me a combo package of ProFlowers and Shari's Berries. The flowers arrived looking very bad, followed instructions to the letter, did not revive them as stated. Very bad experience with ProFlowers.com. Shari's Berries were wonderful as always!
I recently bought flowers (Mothers day gift special) from ProFlowers and was sadly disappointed. The process and service from them sucked. They were late twice delivering and flowers were dead or dying.
I find it that during high demand times their flowers aren’t always the best but their customer service is excellent and always there to take care of the issues.
I ordered a Mother's Day floral arrangement for my stepmother to be delivered on 5/12/18. I received an email (not phone call) at 4:15 pm telling me the flowers will not be delivered until 5/15/18. I calling to complain and was told that the flowers would be delivered free of charge on 5/15/18 to which they were not. I called today to be told the order had been cancelled and that it is what it is. My stepmother would have good reason to think I have lied about the flowers as I told her they were coming twice. This company has zero integrity and will not stand by their word.
My brother-in-law, passed away. I was unable to make it to his memorial scheduled for Friday 11 May 18. I ordered flowers on the 10th to be delivered on the 11 May. The tracking shows it was delivered to the funeral home at the funeral home on 12 May, and then it was left at the door! I asked my sister if she had received them. She did not receive the flowers until Monday the 14th when she had to drive back over and pick them up. These flowers set out on a doorstep until that Monday! She said she tried to save the rose plant, but she couldn't. I really don't understand why you would ship flowers from Georgia to Tennessee and then down to Tampa Florida???
I had the worse experience with ProFlowers. I put in a order for a delivery for my Mother in law for Saturday delivery. I called because I never received correspondence of a delivery. I opened up my prior order with a delivery date of Tuesday May 15th., I called furious and the rep said the flowers were dropped and damaged. I wanted the order delivered on Sunday. The rep said it wouldn't be received until Tuesday with no other options. This is bad business. I wanted my refund and the Rep said she would refund the order and still deliver it on Tuesday free of charge. I informed my mother in law of the delivery for Tuesday the 15th. Absolutely NO delivery from ProFlowers or email. I will NEVER order from them again. I have yet to receive any notification.
The flowers were very nice and they lasted several days. But my complaint is the delivery charges were nearly as much as the cost of the flowers. One time I received an email stating that I would have free shipping. I sent my parents some flowers for their anniversary and was charged shipping even though I used the code from the email. They frequently have some good deals on the flowers but the shipping costs have caused me to stop sending flowers through them.
A little saddened. I ordered a funeral arrangement to be delivered May 19, it came May 12 by mistake, and was reassured it would be delivered again on May 19...it never showed. The funeral is over and no flowers. The reality is the life being remembered was the most important thing, but the family wanted flowers and didn't get them, which was unfortunate. It's difficult trying to speak with customer service who reads from a script and whose goal is to just try and placate you, never really try to fix the problem.
