My name is Petrus Persoon, a fragrance and flower expert, I regularly have to study floral delivery services online to see how flower delivery searches compare on google.
Being related to one of the results offered, Natural Fragrance Rose, I will support the price analysis with screenshots of landing pages, links and verifiable pricing.
The first page organic search results for cheap flower delivery were 3 articles and 7 flower delivery services, besides from the advertising. As we described in a previous article [read here] most flower delivery services are large platforms.
No surprise those pop up first. Advertising machines taking your order, their cut and forwarding the order to a local florist to delivery the flowers form their coolers. That cooler is filled with a pre-purchased flower stock from overseas farmers. We are one of the domestic farmers and decided to do things differently.
Price analysis vs opinion
The blog article that pops up on top of the search results for cheap flower delivery
The authors apparently did not put their findings to the test. No price analysis was preformed. To the credit of the authors of this well written informative article the platforms could have raised their prices shortly after the publication of the article. Although unlikely.
Interestingly, right under their title Best Cheap Flower Delivery the #1 spot is taken by an unknown, new-bee platform Floor.com A button leads to Floom.com´s stylish landing page, with 10K genuine reviews, but with $46.00 to $180.00 on first pages hardly a cheap flower delivery option.
Further down in the TimeOut article we find the very same names of Big Flower delivery platforms as in our google search. The authors did not preform a price analysis to explain their ranking.
Our conclusion : The article did not do a price analysis and incorrect ranking for cheap flower delivery.
The articles favorite is a stylish shop but disqualifies as a cheap flower delivery option. It has steep pricing.
Cheap flower delivery price analysis
1. The best cheap flower delivery is Natural Fragrance Rose
A family owned fragrance flower farm from California USA that reinvented flower delivery with a proprietary method. A transparent webshop with ALL flowers priced at $19.99.

2. From you flowers
Fromyouflowers.com is the flower delivery service that displays at top of our google search with $19.99 in the search results title. Let´s put that to the test.
The landing page reads > under $30 As you will notice on the landing page almost all offered bouquets range above $30 from $31.99 to $39.99 Click through at lowest priced $27.99 bouquet of carnations and chrysateums and you get to the product page, with the up sale $35.99 Deluxe version automatically preselected for you.
Did you know 99% of all carnations are grown in Colombia?
With some search effort a $19.99 bunch of alstroemerias, named Peruvian Lilis could be located. An up sale pink vase automatically preselected making it $28.98. Don’t forget to un-click the up sell.
A few interesting observations. No ratings were available and this delivery service does not have a Google Trusted Store badge.
There is a catch; the standard Delivery / Substitution Policy applies, as on all blooms of fromyouflowers.com . Which means all flowers and add-on can be swopped out for what ever is available. There is no guarantee you actually get what you saw in the picture.
Our conclusion : Runner up in cheapest flower delivery. But with just one single cheap offer to lure.
The aim of the site is to up sell. We have some questions on quality of the offered. A bunch of peruvian alstroemerias?
The second search result is 1800flowers, the 1.4 billion dollar marketing behemoth. Seemingly starting as low as $14.99 Taking your order, it’s cut while the work and risk done by a florist.
The problem is that the store shows gifts and plants of $19.99, not flowers. The cheapest flowers delivered seem to be a bunch of Peruvian lilies at the top of the page.
Clicking trough at that 24.99 Peruvian Lillies, it pre-selects automatically the up sale version $54.99 100 blooms with Garden Pitcher. Proceeding to the check out, you first need to pass a page where $6.99 to $44.99 add-ons are suggested, ranging from digital movies to luxury chocolates.
When you change your mind, remove the item from your cart, you will not be routed back to the cheap flower delivery but to the best sellers page with price range of $49.99 – $69.99
Interesting observations is that this product has, at the time of this analysis, a label with the text ¨219 other people love this product ❤️ ¨ No reviews available. No third party rating service, just that text.
A disclaimer ¨delivered by another partner¨ is added. 1800flowers has a wide collection of flower, plants and gifts a lot of possibilities. With up sales at every corner taken, it takes effort and restraint to make your pick when you are on a budget.
It does take considerable effort to find a policy. To no surprise, there is no guarantee you get what you see in the picture. This delivery service does not have Trusted Store badge by Google.
Our conclusion : 1800flowers has a lot of choice and just one single cheap offer to lure you in.
Up-sell is the business model. It is not an easy store to navigate when on a budget. No guarantees given.
4. Cheap Flower Delivery – Proflowers
Proflowers advertises in their search result an inviting “We have breathtaking arrangements starting at just $19.99” Needless to say the site has breathtaking arrangements, just not at $19.99.
We click and land on Proflowers´ > discount-flowers landing page where bouquets of $45 to $97 are offered. Scrolling down learns not a single bouquet under $30 can be found, let alone the offered $19.99
When setting the page ranked by price, little plants on sale, like succulents, cactus and kalanchoees of $21 to 24.50 float to the top. But not the promised cheap flower delivery of $19.99 or even under $30.
Proflowers, an initiative started out as farm flowers to your door, ships just a few farm-to-door, some more florist-to-door and much more gift baskets, plants and candy. The flower delivery prices range from $50 to $100
The cheapest flower delivery option on proflowers > discount-flowers page was, unsurprisingly, “Wanna Have Sun Alstroemerias”(Peruvian lilis) of $35. You will land on the product detail page that automatically sets the up sale of $40.
Observations: Proflowers doesn’t mention the number of stems but the size of the bouquet H 15” and 14” W which could be a bit optimistic for the 10 stems in the picture, even in full bloom. The footer of the page included industry standard delivery policies.
A Substitution Policy was located, after some browsing, at > customer service > FAQ > My order doesn´t look like the photo. Basically the same industry wide excuse for having no guarantee. Proflowers has no Trusted Store badge by Google.
Conclusion : Proflowers does not offer cheap flower delivery as displayed in search result. It is a clear easy navigable site with cheap plants.
Note : Proflowers merged in 2014 with #5 FTD and #6 Teleflora. Read here the then made prophecy of a mom-n-pop store Boston florist. Two big flower gorilla´s left to dominate the floral delivery market.
5. Cheap Flower Delivery – The Bouqs Co
“ We deliver cheap flowers without sacrificing quality. We ship directly from farms and save you money. Shop our $50 and under selection ”
Bouqs has a catchy name and did appear on Shark Tank to get exposure. It set out in 2013 to send you farm fresh flowers for $40 from Latin American flower farms. The landing page > Flowers under $50
A widget asking to sign in to unlock a 20% discount instantly blocks the view. After your contact data is harvested you can access the lowest prices.
The cheap flower delivery is $35, excluding delivery with a $28 (ex delivery fee) for, you guessed it, 12 stems of alstromerias (Peruvian lilies) Signing up a with your data results in $45 including delivery and tax. Which is for guests $67 the cheapest flower delivery, shipped from Colombia to your door.
On the product page of the alstroemerias the up sale $54 (ex shipping) for 24 stems is preselected. So make sure to change that to the budget option of the 12 stems, $28 (ex shipping)
The care instructions are great, with images, text and with 3 videos. It is a nice touch that Manuel, the Colombian farmer of the flowers, is introduced.
Observations : At the care instructions drop down it mentions “Alstroemeria is shipped in bunches of 10, but with 5 blooms per bunch, we are really shipping 50 flowers per bunch!” So what is it, 10 or 12 stems, amigo?
The prices are are excluding $12 or $15 shipping. The cheapest flower delivery at Bouqs ends up at $43. Since the flowers seem to come straight from the farm there is no need for a substitution policy.
In all honesty, your flowers will ship from the Miami warehouse of the Colombian flower farm.
Our conclusion : The bouqs Co is a good option if you are looking for a flower subscription.
Not a cheap flower delivery option at all at $45 and $67 for guests. A big downside is that there are not one or two day delivery options.
6. Cheap Flower Delivery $29.99 – Teleflora
You land on Teleflora > cheap bouquets page. It displays $35.14 to $37.99 discounted bouquets. As you can see the $29.99 in the search title only applies on either potted gerbera plant or corsages.
The selected cheapest flower delivery flowers options automatically select the most premium up sell of $46.74 excluding taxes.
After unchecking that and progressing to the check out I was halted by a choice of two to upsell to $61 or $66 since cheap flowers not being available in my location.
Observations : The cheapest flower delivery options were not available in California. Teleflora requires a minimum purchase of $59.99. The cheapest flower delivery option was available for Floridian zip codes at $33.14 but at the check out taxes and delivery fees made a grand total of $54.82
There is a substitution policy applying to all flowers on this site. Which means no guarantee you get the flowers in the image you pick. The site has a bit of an old feel. Teleflora is the same company as FTD and Proflowers in this list.
Conclusions : Teleflora is not a cheap flower delivery with a $54.82 minimum price.
7. Send Cheap Flowers – FTD
The cheap flower delivery landing page of FTD >delivery deals has the same lay-out, images and pricing as proflowers. FTD, proflowers and Teleflora are one and the same company.
The cheapest flower delivery option are “Picnic Party Daisy Bouquet” Yet the image displays chrysanthemums and not daisies.
Suffice to say a substitute policy applies to all flowers on the site. You have no guarantee you get what you see or read. Furthermore also here the product page automatically selects the up sell of $40 over the selected cheaper $30.
Our Conclusion : FTD and Proflowers have an identical flowers and site with some company color and logo differences.
FTD offers one cheap flower delivery option at $34.20 (including tax) but is in the business of upsell at each corner.

Who has the cheapest flower delivery fee?
This question is posed and answered with a blog. Cheapest Ways to Send Flowers | LoveToKnow by Anna Spooner. Anna ranks in her blog 1. Fromyouflowers 2. The Bouqs 3. Proflowers 4. Kabloom, with a backlink to Crazy Coupon Lady 5. Contact a local florist. The #5 is a sound advise made by Anna.
Interestingly Anna, a talented copy writer, did not preform a price analysis in her article. Her blog contains links to the featured web shops main pages yet not those sites cheapest flower delivery options.
So it is a mystery how Anna concluded that ProFlowers wins the title of cheapest flower delivery service by having relatively low fees. The more since Proflowers displays on their site all-in prices without fees.
It might be that the site has changed its pricing structure since Feb 2, the day of the publication. But that seems unlikely.
