Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and if you haven’t gotten Mom something already, here’s your chance to get her some lovely flowers and gifts…and earn some extra points (as well as brownie points) all at the same time. Flowers are insanely expensive and there’s a huge markup, so shop around for the best price. Though if you are going to bite the bullet and get flowers anyway, you might as well bank some miles and points. There are lots of deals out there, but here are some of my favorites. Feel free to share any you have found.
Delta: 35 miles per dollar with 1-800-FLOWERS
American: 30 miles per dollar with FTD.com
United: 30 miles per dollar with FTD.com
US Airways: 25 miles per dollar with Teleflora
25% Off with an Amex card with FTD.com (I don’t believe this can be stacked with other mileage earning)
20% Off with a Visa card with FTD.com (I don’t believe this can be stacked with other mileage earning)
Southwest: 14 points per dollar on Shari’s Berries
United: 1,500 miles with first $50 purchase at Gilt Groupe and 5 miles per dollar spent for the first 6 months.
British Airways: 12 Avios per dollar spent at CafePress. Great if you are interested in making Mom a custom item + 30% off with offer code AFF30
British Airways: 12 Avios per dollar spent at Zazzle, the online custom greeting card site, plus 50% off 2 day shipping with code MOMSMOMMENTS
Chase Ultimate Rewards: 7 points per dollar spent at Nordstrom
Up to 6,500 United Miles for a Vinesse Wine Club Membership.
500 US Airways miles when you download the Dividend Miles Storefront Toolbar and conduct one search (though if you don’t need the points now it might make sense to wait for this fall’s Grand Slam)
