1800Flowers / 1800flowers lied to me!

1 United States Review updated:

On may 8th 2007, I ordered flowers for my mother from 1800flowers. They were supposed to be delivered the next day (May 9th, 2007) , well in time for mother's day which was may 13, 2007. On may 16th, I got as call from my mom. She never received the flowers!!!

I contacted 1800flowers that night. After arguing with them for several minutes, a supervisor finally cam on and promised to deliver the flowers and give a full refund.

I never received notification of the delivery, and I never saw my bank account credited anything. I called my mother to find out that they finally were delivered on saturday (Ten days late, and six days past mothers day).

I called 1800flowers today (May 22nd) to find out what happened to my refund, as was told that they never refund the whole amount if the flowers are eventually delivered. They claimed that they had nothing in the notes about it.

I demanded to speak to a supervisor, and when I told him that I would tell everyone I know how I was treated, I was told to do whatever I had to do.

So, I am here to tell people not to do business with this company. They lied to me. They ruined my mother's mothers day. They are not to be trusted, and I am telling everyone not to do business with them, unless they find such treatment acceptable.

    I order three sets of flowers for my wife, mother and mother in law for Valentine's day. I paid $20 extra each for special delivery. My mother got dead flowers, my mother in law got a bouquet vaguely resembling the photo and description on the website and my wife got NOTHING. I called the local florist at noon on Valentine's Day to check on the status of my wife's flowers. I was promised that they would deliver by 1 pm. My wife saw numerous deliveries to her office from this florist, but not hers. I called the florist to redirect them to my house at 3 pm as my wife had left her school for the day. Daniel at the local florist(Watermill florist in Fort Lauderdale) told me to call 1800flowers for a refund. 1800flowers was busy for the remainder of the night. I spoke to "Rachel" in India on 2/15. She was very sympathetic until I asked for a refund. Then, she faked a bad connection and severed the call.
    Please tell all of your friends not to use 1800flowers ever again. They are scam artists of unbelievable proportions.

    I just had an ordeal with 1-800-Flowers and will NEVER use them again. I accidentally made a one letter error on the address and immediately emailed the company to "change my order" and change the letter of the road as a correction. I followed up the next day with a phone call, to no avail. I was told that they couldn't do anything because the flower order was confirmed. I contacted USA Bouquet in Chicago (the supplier) and was told that they just download the labels and couldn't make any changes. I called back to 800-flowers customer service and spoke to a supervisor. My flowers are not coming and I can't get a refund! That was $85 down the tubes! 100% satisfaction guaranteed - FALSE ADVERTISING!
