How to Get Discounts on Flowers!

How to Get Discounts on Flowers!

Does your husband send you flowers a few times a year?  Or perhaps  you ended up with quite the collection of flower vases.  Something to ask the next time you’re in a flower store, is to see if they will give you cash back or  “discount” if you bring them in.

I’m sure prices and store credits will not be the same across the country or even store to store, and of course it probably depends if they feel it is worth buying back.  They also may not offer this, but there is no harm in asking.

Most Likely the Chains of Flower Stores will not offer this, but generally Ma & PA type flower stores will be more willing to bargain with you.

I live in a small town, and our store allows this, it’s not a whole bunch of cash or anything, but if they are simply sitting in your house collecting dust, this is a good way to recycle. It is not “advertised”.  I happen to find out through a friend of mine, that this was possible, quite some time ago.

I’m starting to have a nice collection myself right now, as I found cleaning out underneath my kitchen sink,  So I think I’ll go in on Tuesday and get a store credit.  Our local flower store sells garden statues, Holiday ornaments, and silk flower arrangements along with fresh flowers.


  1. JulieA,

    Yes, When I said “Local Flower shop” I was meaning a “MA & PA store” But yes it may not work with Flower shop chains. But thanks for contributing information. IT is good to know other options.

  2. I was a florist when I lived in the USA. We did not give “store credit” for vases brought in, but we DID offer discounts to anyone who brought in a vase or container of their own in which they wanted an arrangement created. Customer would then pay for the flowers used an a small fee for the design service. I have brought in my own contaciners/vases here in Canada with the same results.

    There is one exception worldwide: FTS, Teleflora, and other wire-serviced arrangements MUST be done in the containers these companies provide the florist when you choose an arrangement online and/or from their catalogs, especially on floral holidays..

  3. I will have to try this. I am not sure if my local grocer allows it or not but it is worth a try.
