FTD vs. Flower Delivery Express vs. JustFlowers: Top Flower Delivery Services Comparison

Pricing is fairly consistent between these providers. Each has a spate of negative reviews by single, angry consumers you can find online, but they all have high ratings from the BBB and growing customer bases. Flower choices are also similar for each service. FTD is a great option for businesses or people who need to buy flowers frequently. Their customer service is also the most available and expansive in terms of options, further suiting them for corporate clients. Flower Delivery Express is a good choice for people who want to find the best bargains available and who have a "no frills" goal of flowers or plants, or just simple add ons. JustFlowers is a good option for people who want to blend an online lifestyle with support of local businesses. It also provides a very fresh product thanks to its use of local florists.

Quick Costs Comparison

FTD

  • 12 long-stemmed Red Roses: $49.99 no vase, $59.99 with vase

  • Cheapest Mixed Bouquet: $19.99 marked “on sale”--don't know if there's always an option at this price; quite a few at $39.99.

  • Shipping Charges: FTD delivers same day or, in some cases, the following day for a set price of $19.99 no matter the item so long as you order by 2:00pm recipient's time zone Monday-Friday. Weekend deliveries cost $29.99.

Flower Delivery Express

  • 12 long-stemmed Red Roses: no option without vase, $64.95 with vase

  • Cheapest Mixed Bouquet: $25.99 marked “on sale”--don't know if there's always an option at this price; a “mystery” florist's choice at $19.99; several at $34.95 or $39.99.

  • There was a “$20 off today” and “$30.00 rebate” on the homepage. When I clicked on it there was only boilerplate information on rebates, so I'm not sure what the parameters are except that rebates aren't for cash but for future purchases.

  • Shipping Charges: will endeavor to deliver flowers on the same day or next day for a standard fee of $19.99 no matter the item as long as you order by 12:00pm. Saturday delivery is the same. No Sunday delivery. $24.99 international deliveries.

JustFlowers

  • 12 Red Roses: $64.99

  • Cheapest Mixed Bouquet: $34.99

  • There was a “$20 off today” and “$10.00 rebate” on the homepage. When I clicked on it there was only boilerplate information on rebates, so I'm not sure what the parameters are except that rebates aren't for cash but for future purchases.

  • Shipping Charges: The shipping fee starts at $9.99.

Pros and Cons

FTD

Pros:

  • FTD has a program called Priority Club Rewards that lets you earn 20 points for $1 you spend on FTD flowers, gifts and other items.

  • FTD offers the “Gold Membership” which is great for repeat orderers. The Gold Membership costs $29.99 for one year. This gets you some special offers, but most importantly it gets you free standard (non-weekend) delivery on everything you buy all year.

  • Excellent selection of gifts and add-ons including wine or champagne, spa gifts, jewelry and more.

  • FTD Fair Trade Range offers eco-friendly options.

  • Shop by price or occasion, and sort the presentation within a category (such as sort by price, lowest to highest or most popular).

  • Each bouquet has three sizes (or more).

  • Special coupons offered at times.
  • Special bouquets for holidays and occasions including weddings.

  • Good plant selection available.

  • You can add on a 'say it your way' keepsake that records your voice so you can speak your greeting, personalizing your gift for your loved ones.

  • FTD's website is the easiest to use and navigate.

  • Same day, next day and weekend delivery almost always offered.

  • International delivery is available for most items—154 countries are served by FTD so it is the best option for international orders.

  • “7-Day satisfaction guarantee” lets you choose to either replace the gift or get a refund.

  • Customer service is available 24/7/365, making it the best customer service option.

Cons:

  • Although there are a variety of paying options, a few are rarely used, like Carte Blanche, and you can't pay by PayPal like you can with the other two.

  • A CBS consumer report found that compared to other online flower services FTD arrangements were smaller dollar per dollar.

  • You really need a budget of at least $40 plus $20 for shipping to get anything from FTD with a few exceptions at times.

FlowerDeliveryExpress

Pros:

  • There was a “$20 off today” and “$30.00 rebate” on the homepage. When I clicked on it there was only boilerplate information on rebates, so I'm not sure what the parameters are except that rebates aren't for cash but for future purchases. There are other coupons.

  • Great, wide range of gifts and add-ons including day spa products, cheeses and meats, coffees, baby products and candy.

  • Best bargain options including “Deal of the Day” and “Florist's Choice” give you budget options that the other two don't unless there's an unusual special running.

  • Shop by price or occasion.

  • Each bouquet has three sizes (or more).

  • Special promotions and unique bouquets for holidays and occasions.

  • Good plant selection.

  • Same day, next day and weekend delivery for most items.

  • International delivery is usually available.

  • If not satisfied contact them immediately for a replacement; it has to be reported upon delivery and service, delivery, shipping and handling charges are not refundable.

Cons:

  • Worst website of the three. Not intuitive, well-labeled or easy to navigate.

  • Fewer non-flower gift options than the other two, less variety.

  • Only option for customer service is email or Facebook.

Just Flowers

Pros:

  • “Just Flowers Guarantee” promises that your recipient will “get fresh and beautiful floral arrangements.” If they don't they will exchange the item (but not refund your money).

  • Always uses local florists to fulfill all orders.

  • Shop by occasion, style, flower or price.

  • Bestsellers section usually highlights less expensive options.

  • Search by to find something just right.

  • Some add-ons and gifts but not as much variety as the other two.

  • All bouquets are available in three sizes.

  • Same day and next day delivery on almost everything, almost all of the time.

  • International delivery on some options.

  • Delivery charges start at $9.99 instead of $19.99.

  • Live customer helpline during business hours.

  • Widest range of payment methods including paypal and a number of major credit cards.

Cons:

  • International delivery on some options.

  • Although the delivery fees start out lowest, there's no cap and you won't know how much delivery is until you've placed your order because it depends on the local florist.

  • There is an additional charge for ordering over the phone so this is not as good for people who are less Internet savvy.

 

Verdicts On Each

If this is you:

  • You need international service;

  • You order flowers a lot;

  • You need customer service to always be available;

  • You have a higher budget;

  • You want a really broad range of upper end add ons and gifts;

  • You don't mind fewer paying options or you only pay by major credit card anyway;

FTD is the best service of the three for you.

If this is you:

  • You need a bargain if possible;

  • You don't mind taking some time making it through the website or you're just browsing anyway;

  • You aren't a big customer service user;

  • You are looking for a good buy on flowers or plants, but not a bigger, fancier gift with lots of add ons;

Flower Delivery Express is the best of these three online flower delivery services for you.

If this is you:

  • It's important to you to support local businesses;

  • You might want add ons and extras;

  • You are concerned about loss of freshness in shipping;

  • You are a serious online shopper;

  • You don't mind some variation in delivery fees;

JustFlowers is the best option here for you.
