If you ask me, flowers are a freaking rip-off – especially during the Valentine’s Day frenzy. Luckily (or not), I don’t have to worry about buying anyone flowers this year, but if you are going to throw your money down the drain impress your significant other with a bouquet, you might as well earn miles. As always, comparison shop to make sure you get a good price, especially with your local florist.

Current deals (feel free to comment with any that I’ve  missed):
American: 30 miles per dollar spent at FTD (plus 100 miles per order if you are an Citi AAdvantage cardholder)
Delta: 35 miles per dollar spent at 1800FLOWERS.com and use promo code 52DE for an additional 5 miles per dollar (hat tip Travelers Loophole)
Southwest: 1,500 points per order at Teleflora
United: 30 miles per dollar spent and 150 bonus miles per order at FTD
US Airways: 25 miles per dollar spent at FTD.com
