Amazon Is Offering One-Hour Flower Delivery for Valentine’s Day
Good news if February 14 just “snuck up” on you.
Your Valentine’s Day gifting just got a lot easier. If you’ve forgotten to get a present for your significant other, or haven’t placed an order on a bouquet just yet, Amazon has you covered. The online retailer is offering one-hour and free two-hour delivery of fresh flowers from Saturday, February 11 through Tuesday, February 14 on its Prime Now service. The flowers will come from KaBloom, an online floral delivery service, and some select cities will also deliver flowers from local stores like Eataly, Plum Market, and Sprouts Farmers Market.
Prime Now, Amazon’s one- to two-hour delivery service, is available to Prime members. All you have to do is enter your zip code, search for the items you want (flowers, food, etc.), and check out. You can choose delivery windows so local couriers will deliver the items to your doorstep (or your significant other’s office or house). It’s available in 30 cities across the U.S. Normally two-hour delivery is free and one-hour delivery is $7.99 in select cities.
And if a big bouquet of roses isn’t your Valentine’s thing, you can also send last-minute gifts, candy, cards, or even lunch from a favorite restaurant. You could even send a bottle of wine as a present, too. Prime Now is also offering great deals on chocolate boxes—buy two Cailler chocolate boxes and get 25 percent off, or get a free MARS candy item (M&Ms, Snickers, Twix, etc.) with the promo code VDAY17.
