I've been with my wife 18 years and didn't know what it meant, nor have I ever sent flowers.  If you give them the good dick, flowers never cross their mind.

Curious how old you are? Under 35?

Not because "oh you dumb kids!!" just wondering if this is one of those things younger people less likely to know. I'm surprised FTD still around and popular.

All the online places do that too.  "19.99 for roses and chocolates, 39.99 for shipping handling".  

Tried Proflowers, discovered that they just ship the flowers in an uninsulated box via UPS, which works very poorly when the area you delivering to has single digit temps this time of year.

Yeah, don't fall for that "$19.99 for a dozen roses!" ad. They add about $17.50 for basic shipping and handling (if I recall correctly) and another $8 or some such for the vase to hold them.

Last time I did that I think it ran me about $45 for those 19 dollar roses.

Highway robbery.  And 1-800 flowers seems to just broker with participating local florists so what you actually get may or may not resemble the photo on the website.

I've had decent luck looking up a local shop and working with them directly, but it isn't always an option in some locations.

It's a damn shame what it cost for a few flowers.....  like this proves your love....  

the whole wedding ring concept needs to go as well......

Women  want equal rights, equal pay, woman marches, gender names removed...........  then  stop expecting flowers and diamond engagement rings

I convinced my wife that Valentines day is an international conspiracy between confectionery manufacturers, jewelers, and florists to rape your wallet. I also told her she can buy herself flowers anytime she wants because I won't be on Valentine's day. She hasn't left me yet.

You got off light.  My son in law ordered some for my daughter and they charged him $79.99.  When SIL tried to get charges reversed they upped the ante to $799.99.  Took almost 3 months to get it taken care of.

I just buy mine at Wally's or the grocery store and take them home.  $9 to $19 a dozen depending but no extra charges.  Also buy the mixed flowers for as little as 4.95 a dozen, includes antique roses and smell better longer than just roses.

This right here!

My wife has explicitly said she doesn't want flowers, candy, or jewelry on days it's "expected" like Valentine's Day and Mother's Day. When the "Every kiss begins with Kay" commercials come on, she rolls here eyes and comments on the "poor suckers" that are getting taken to the cleaners by the advertising machine. I usually send flowers around dates that are important to us (anniversaries, special memories, etc..) and sometimes she gets flowers on random days just because she's an awesome wife.

I found a local florist that sends much nicer arrangements, often for a lower price, than the big flower sellers like FTD, etc. I go in and talk with the florist about what stock he'll have coming in and pretty much pick the flowers that I want for the arrangement.

Floral Trans-world Delivery (originally Florists' Telegraph Delivery).  I sent flowers to my wife in St. Louis from Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm using FTD.  I don't think I have used them since.

Same experience here. I've gone into my local florist and said "she doesn't like roses, can you put something together for $50?" And what I got was an enormous bouquet of flowers. Take out the middle man and they'll treat you right.

Valentines Day should just be called what it is....Tax on Men Day.

1-800 Flowers hit me with a $25.98 Service Fee.... Not to mention the outrageous pricing on the flowers themselves. The flowers "have" to be delivered to their offices so all of the women can dick measure between themselves as to who's boyfriend/husband "loves" them the most. Then they get to pity the women who didn't get flowers.....awwwww.... Then we get buy presents and pay for dinner.....

I hate this fucking holiday......

Online ordering prices are ridiculous.  Flower arrangements that are $20 any other day are $60 on Valentine's day.  I just go by Safeway and get whatever they have for under 15 bucks.  If you go during the day when the floral department is staffed they will wrap it up and make it look good.

Screw online delivery companies.

I picked up two dozen red roses with some Gerber daisies this morning from a bulk flower distributor this morning for under $40.  Dropped it off at my wife's office.

Now on to March 14th :)

3 orders and all 3 times, the flowers were mangled/damaged as if some critters mistook the flower box, for a Prius, and had a soup kitchen in it.

lol victim of this today too.

the 20% coupon applied to the cost of the flowers, not to the 21.99$ delivery charge.

ETA they said it was 20% off yet it went from like $62.99 down to $54.00 so I'm not sure what kind of special common core math major they have working in the discount department

They got me last year. Best part is I paid for AM delivery and they got there 5 min before she left at the end of the day.

They did offer me a $5 credit and I told them to get fucked.

Never again.

And they weren't what I fucking ordered.

My go-to flowers for my wife is "a $50 presentation bouquet of fresh-cut flowers."  It's BIG and showy with plastic wrap around the stems.  She doesn't like roses or bouquets of roses.

Kinda like this except MUCH BIGGER and a wider variety of colors.  Makes her wild.
