Customers Who Love and Hate FTD

Positive FTD Reviews

Ordered flowers for Valentine’s Day for my wife and they came in on time, cheaper than some of the other places on line and she was happy. I also got free shipping for a year, so the next ones will be even better. – Eric D., Yelp 2/14/2017

I ordered an arrangement for my Grandfathers funeral from *** *******. The flowers were delivered to the viewing ahead of schedule and personally set up and were just beautiful! I had requested a special ribbon to be added with the words ‘Paw Paw’ and the florist delivered the special request with an elegant touch and it meant so much. I will definitely use *** ******* again and I highly recommend them to my family and friends! – Kathy M., BBB 3/6/2017

Negative FTD Reviews

Spent close to $100 to send my mom flowers for her birthday. The flowers depicted on the site were nothing like what was delivered. Very disappointed. FTD has a chance to make it right… I have requested another bouquet to be delivered tomorrow (free of charge). I will update my review depending on what I get. EDIT- Ive added a star because my complaint to FTD yielded a better bouquet … However, it’s still nothing like what I ordered. Can’t imagine ordering from here again. – Jennifer Q., Yelp 2/1/2017

I ordered flowers to be delivered to a funeral. The website states same day delivery, but was unable to deliver given over 24 hours notice. Rather than contacting me, so I could change my order or change florists, they called me over 24 hours later and stated they cancelled my order. I don’t recommend going through FTD. I recommend you call a local florist directly. – Craig F., BBB 3/18/2017

The King of Flowers

Want to know what day in U.S. history holds the record for the most flowers sold? That would be August 17, 1977, the day after Elvis Presley died. It is said that 3,116 floral arrangements were delivered in Memphis and the city ran out of flowers. Fans got creative with their requests and sent arrangements in the shape of guitars, hearts and music notes. You can get creative with what you send to your loved one too. You don’t have to stick with the traditional dozen roses, although tradition can be romantic and sweet too.

I ordered flowers for my daughter’s birthday on December 26th. A happy birthday greeting card was written with a vase and lilac flowers. Came white flowers without a vase with Christian symbols were delivered. Although we are Jews, I was very surprised how you can send a delivery without reading a postcard … Terrible service.
I recently used FTD for ordering some flowers for a client and liked their selection of more formal looking bouquets.
