I haven’t ordered Valentine’s day flowers yet.  So I was glad to receive an email from Southwest for 1,750 Southwest points for buying at least $29.99 in flowers from 1-800-FLOWERS!

What’s better is that these points will count towards the Southwest Companion Pass!  The Companion Pass is valuable because whenever you fly on Southwest, your companion flies with you for (almost) free!

Southwest points are worth ~1.67 cents per points if you book your flight by March 31, 2014, so 1,750 points are worth ~$29 (1,750 Southwest points x 1.67 cents per Southwest point).

Emily loves flowers and I enjoy giving them to her.

But I also love the Southwest points (especially the Companion Pass type!)

…And the Points Make Daraius Smile Even More!

 Here’s How You Get the Points (or Flowers)

 Step 1

Before February 14, 2014, go to the Southwest Shopping Portal and add flowers of at least $29.99 to your cart.

Step 2

Complete the order form.  When you get to the final checkout page enter the promotion code “RR42″ and your Southwest membership number.

Don’t Forget to Enter the Promo Code and Your Southwest Number!

This a great offer for folks who were planning on buying flowers anyway because now you will get Southwest points too!

However, note that you will pay high shipping & handling fees of ~$27 on your order.

I was also charged $5 to have my order delivered on Valentine’s Day.  This brought the total to ~$61 including taxes for flowers AND 1,750 points.

Thanks to folks for pointing out in the comments that you can get an extra $15 off your purchase by using the American Express Sync discounts.  Just log into your American Express account and click on “Offers for You” to see the $15 discount offer.

There are many ways to earn Southwest Companion Pass Points. 

But buying flowers is a better deal than buying Choice Hotel points (usually the cheapest way to get Companion Pass points) and transferring them to Southwest.  That’s because it costs ~$66 for 6,000 Choice points which is worth 1,800 Southwest points. 

I’d rather buy flowers for ~$61 and get 1,750 Southwest points.  That way, you also get brownie points for the flowers!

How Can I Use My Points?

In my experience, the 1,750 Southwest points will count towards the Southwest Companion Pass!

And don’t forget Southwest now flies to the Caribbean!

 Terms & Conditions

All orders placed through February 14, 2014 are eligible for the bonus points.  Make sure you enter the promo code “RR42” otherwise you won’t get the bonus points.

You will only receive 1,000 points if your order is placed AFTER February 14, 2014.

You must make a minimum purchase of $29.99.  You also need to enter the promo code and your Southwest number before you complete your order.

If you’re sending flowers to more than one person, it is better to place separate orders so that you get 1,750 points for each order.

Enter Code “RR42” and Order Before February 14, 2014 to Get 1,750 Southwest Points

The terms say that it can take up to 6 to 8 weeks for the points to show up in your Southwest account.  However, in my experience the points post in ~3 weeks.

Bottom Line

You will earn 1,750 Southwest points for every purchase of $29.99 from 1-800-FLOWERS.

This is a good deal for folks who were already planning on sending flowers and are trying to earn a few extra points for the Southwest Companion Pass!

Well, points posted...but they only posted 1,000 points and not the 1,750 points that they promised.

Waiting to hear a response.

Points finally posted today! Record time too, only ~7 weeks after I placed my order.

Well, misery loves company. I was a bit relieved that I wasn't alone in being shafted by 1-800-Flowers.

I placed an order for Valentines Day. No points yet. Customer service at 1-800-Flowers said "PLEASE ALLOW 8 WEEKS AFTER PRODUCT IS DELIVERED FOR POINTS POSTINGS TO OCCUR ON YOUR GUEST REWARDS ACCOUNT STATEMENT. 'MILES/POINTS ARE AWARDED ON MERCHANDISE VALUE ONLY'. Not looking good. Never again 1-800-Flowers.

Can I just say that 1-800-flowers is an absolute joke. I want to warn others about their business. I made 2 orders over 10 weeks ago and put in my RR# and promotion code to make sure I got the points for South West. I called 1-800-flowers and they said they would credit the points in 4-6 weeks. Then I called again and they claimed they would be credited in 6-8 weeks. I have called them over and over and they said that they reported my points to South West from day one, and claim that South West is delayed in getting me points. I called SouthWest and they say there is no way that is true. And I believe South West because they have delivered points very fast from other promotions. 1-800-flowers has no other way of investigating where the points are and I am doubtful that they will ever show up. This was the last step to getting my companion pass and I have had to not schedule some flights due to these clowns at 1-800-flowers.

My 2 orders were nightmares as well. They looked nothing like the pictures. I ordered a potted set of flowers that looked like it had over a dozen flowers in their picture. What arrived looked like a scrawny little weed with only one flower on it.

Buyers beware, do not use 1-800-flowers! I'm not one to complain usually, but they are totally out of line.

Teresa - did you ever receive your points? I was waiting to receive mine as well. Thanks.
