BLOOMSYBOX

Sourcing all of their blooms from fair trade farms around the world, BloomsyBox aims to deliver colorful beauty to your home or office with its subscription Flower Clubs. Their options are wider than most of their competitors: if you want weekly deliveries, just roses, or to be able to choose the size of your bouquet, BloomsyBox has a membership for you.

Membership Overview:

  • Flower Types: Fresh-cut seasonal and traditional bouquet arrangements
  • Vase: Not included
  • Duration: Month-to-month, or 3-6-12 month prepay
  • Frequency: Weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly
  • Shipping: Included

Your flowers come carefully packaged in a long box (no vase included). When appropriate, each blossom is protected with a plastic stem cover and a mesh hood, to keep the blooms in as close to pristine condition as possible. You'll also get a packet of flower food, care instructions, and a whimsical informational card about the blossoms in your delivery.

Pricing on the monthly Flower Clubs can be a little confusing at first glance. Obviously, you'll pay more for the larger bouquets, but for all subscriptions you get a discount for the longer you prepay your deliveries. For example, with the Small subscription, your monthly price ranges from $39.99/month if you pay as you go, down to $34.01/month if you pay for 12 months of deliveries in advance.

If you're interested in weekly or bi-weekly deliveries, you'll find that option elsewhere: not under the Subscribe heading, but rather the one that says, "Weekly Flowers", (go figure). These only include single varieties of flowers in each bouquet and prices range from $41.00 (biweekly) to $43.99 (weekly) per delivery.

Only want roses? BloomsyBox has a subscription for that as well. You can get a monthly bouquet of 18-20 or 25 roses. The smaller bouquet is $39/month, and the larger one is $42/month. Varieties have included Altamira, Paloma, Stardust, Green Tea, and Deep Purple, among many more.

Customers rave about their BloomsyBox deliveries. The retailer has a 7-day freshness guarantee; if for some reason your blooms don't last at least a week, all you need to do is email the company and they'll either replace your bouquet or refund your money. From the photos we found from happy customers, it's probably not likely that you'll ever have to take them up on their guarantee. Customers also like the ability to change a delivery date: deliveries typically happen between the 16th and 23rd of the month, but you can contact them to change the date (for example, if you or your gift recipient will be on vacation or otherwise not available to receive the flower delivery).

The only reason BloomsyBox didn't rank higher in our reviews is, like a few other flower retailers, they do not include a vase with their subscription program. That may be fine if you already have a vase - or if your lucky gift recipient already has one and knows to expect the delivery - but otherwise it could be a problem, at least for the first shipment. You can click on the Bloomsy Store link at the bottom of the page; there, you'll find several vases to choose from, but you'll need to get in touch with their customer service department to find out how you would go about adding it to your Flower Club's first delivery. (It would have been great to have that as an add-on option during the checkout process, for example.)

Otherwise, BloomsyBox is an excellent choice for your Flower Club subscription: the variety of flowers, bouquet sizes, and membership options is one of the best on the market, and they have a strong reputation for keeping their customers happy.

1 800 FLOWERS

1 800 Flowers leads the pack in affordable flower clubs. This well-known flower delivery service is also in the business of delivering bouquets each month on a preselected date that you choose. This is a nice option, only available at 1 800 Flowers, and allows you to be in control of when that special person receives their gift each month.

The down side to this low-cost flower club is that 1 800 Flowers does not include a vase in the first delivery, and it's also not an option to buy. Receiving flowers and no respective vase could lead to a box of dead flowers and an awkward situation. The only way around that is if you make a one time flower purchase, add a vase, and then establish the club membership to start the month after.

Membership Overview:

  • Flower Types:  colorful bouquet of mixed varieties
  • Vase:  Not included
  • Duration:  3, 6, or 12 months
  • Frequency:  Monthly only
  • Shipping:  Included

The intended bouquet deliveries are listed on the website and generally look ok. Some of the monthly selections seem a bit outdated or geared perhaps for the older crowd. However, 1 800 Flowers has created an affordable monthly flower club with flexibility in the delivery dates of the flowers. If your gift recipient already has an empty vase and aren't interested in the latest flower bouquet designs, then this might be a good option for you.

Flower Clubs

To help you find the Best Flower Clubs, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of BloomsyBox and 1 800 Flowers.

The look and smell of beautiful fresh flowers is a wonderful experience. Showing your love or appreciation through a gift of flowers is a great way to bring a smile to anyone's face. Better yet, flower clubs give you an opportunity to send a gift that keeps on giving - fresh flowers delivered automatically, each and every month.

Just imagine a new flower bouquet appearing at the doorstep of your gift recipient, reminding them of just how thoughtful and caring you are. With a flower club membership, flowers can be delivered monthly, bi-monthly, or quarterly, depending on the flexibility of the flower club and the customer's preference.

As with any club membership, not all flower clubs are the same. It's important to understand the terms of your membership before you sign up. Some of the important aspects of a flower club membership include:

  • Flexibility.  Will you be able to select the length of membership and frequency that fits your needs and budget? Will your flower delivery come with a vase or is that extra?
  • Cost.  What can you expect to pay for the flower club membership? How does that compare to other flower clubs? Are monthly payments available, or do you have to pay the entire cost upfront?
  • Satisfaction Policy.  If you aren't happy with the timeliness or quality of the flowers delivered, is there a guarantee so that you can receive a refund?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Flower Clubs available today. We hope this information helps you find the best flower club membership that meets your needs!
