1-800-Flowers.com has all the flowers, bouquets, chocolates, candies, dipped strawberries, and stuffed animals you could ever need for Valentines Day. The flower delivery company has just announced that they’ll be delighting customers with new ways to make purchases for that special someone using their mobile app and a sendable additional AR message!

Ordering Flowers Now Faster and Easier

When we’re looking to surprise the love of our life, our best friends, or family members on Valentines Day we know what to get them (or don’t) and we’re often strapped for time. 1-800-Flowers.com is making it easier to get that thoughtful gift delivered with their new mobile website.

The new mobile site has optimizations that allow you to filter through items, select, and then pay at checkout. This change along with their ‘Quick Meets Easy’ tool makes finding gifts through shop recommendations easier to do with a few simple questions.

Customers who are forgetful or have a lot going on can use SmartGift to notify whoever’s receiving the arrangement that a gift is on its way. The notifications come in a text, email, or other means of delivery so your boo won’t think you forgot about them even when the gift arrives late.

Their ordering and checkout are becoming smart enabled. What do I mean? First thing, customers can now order using their smart devices with Samsung’s Bixby (voice), Apple Business Chat (text), Google Assistant (voice/chat), and Facebook Messenger. They can also pay for everything using Samsung Pay, Google Pay, Apple Pay, or good old regular checkout.

Crafting a heartwarming message along with a gift is to some, a lost art form. Apple customers with an iPhone or iPad will be able to send AR messages with the 1-800-Flowers.com iOS app. Romantics and those that love to love will use their smartphone enabled with ARKit to send AR filters and messages.

“As part of our ongoing mission to deliver smiles, we are continually focused on elevating the shopping experience, making it effortless, convenient and fun for our customers,” said Tom Hartnett, President, 1-800-Flowers.com in an online statement.

“We are excited to introduce even more innovative ways for gift-givers to interact with 1-800-Flowers.com and to help Valentines everywhere ‘wow’ the important people in their lives in the weeks ahead.”

AR filters are a trend that’s utterly entertaining to send and receive. Sending your beloved a properly timed throwback message like “Will You Be My Valentine?”, or other customized message or photo isn’t just cute, it’s the spark that will keep you in their mind all day long. The anticipation of answering that question is enough to make anyone’s heart flutter.

To send flowers so they’ll be delivered on time for Valentines Day and to get up to 40% off, order them by February 3rd. Signing up for their alerts also gets you in the know for special deals and offers so you don’t have to spend a ton to give the gifts your loved ones will remember forever.
