About ProFlowers 

ProFlowers Review

ProFlowers is an e-commerce flower retailer based in the US. Shipping directly to the doors of customers and businesses, the company prides itself on customer satisfaction, proper floriculture practices, and worldwide availability. 

Right off the bat, this ProFlowers review can let you know that the brand has made quite a name for itself in its over 20 years of business.

Pro-Flowers has an impressive 450K likes on Facebook and over 20K followers on Instagram, and received the highest score on the J.D. Power 2020 Online Flower Retailer Satisfaction Report. 

This ProFlowers review will take a look at the brand, its products, and what customers have to say in order to answer that one, burning question: Is ProFlowers a good company?

Overview of ProFlowers 

ProFlowers Review

ProFlowers was founded in San Diego in 1998 by entrepreneur Jared Polis, who is currently serving his first term as governor of Colorado.

The brand partners with local florists to provide speedy delivery of thoughtfully designed flower arrangements to customers across the US.

ProFlower’s wide variety of bouquets and arrangements makes the company a go-to for any occasion. If you’re looking to say “I love you,” ProFlowers has you covered six ways from Sunday; if you go to Pro Flowers for funeral arrangements, there are a number of tasteful options to help you show your love as you say goodbye.

The brand proudly adheres to ethical floriculture practices. ProFlowers holds its suppliers to a code of conduct regarding their labor policies, ensuring that they provide adequate food, transportation, and pay for their workers, and strictly forbidding the use of child labor.

The brand also insists that its harvesters follow clearly set-out environmental regulations.  

This ProFlowers review has found that, after a successful first eight years, the brand was acquired by Liberty Media Co., which began expanding the scope of its business by moving into accessories and gifts, like Pro Flowers fruit baskets.

In 2014, the whole operation was purchased by the century-old floral delivery service Florists’ Transworld Delivery (FTD).

Despite its acquisition by FTD, the brand retains its own identity, and the ProFlowers corporate office is still in its old home in San Diego.

Now that we’ve filled in some of the background, let’s kick off this ProFlowers review with an overview of the company’s primary highlights.

Highlights

  • Wide selection of floral arrangements for any occasion, broken down by event type, colors, or flower type, including Pro Flowers tulips, roses, lilies, orchids, etc.
  • Protective packaging to ensure flowers are delivered intact and pristine 
  • Pro Flowers same day delivery available through local florists
  • Pro Flowers flower delivery available internationally through parent company FTD
  • Reasonable pricing 
  • Afterpay available for installment payments

That’s the broad picture—now it’s time for this ProFlowers review to get down to the nitty-gritty. Let’s take a look at some of the bestselling ProFlowers arrangements to get a better sense of what this brand has to offer.

ProFlowers Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

ProFlowers Review

This ProFlowers review has done some digging to see what previous and returning customers think of the company, its products, and its customer service. 

Some ProFlowers customers were evidently quite happy to buy from the brand again. On Consumer Affairs, ProFlowers scores 3.9/5 stars based on over 2,500 reviews.

Commenters at this site praised ProFlowers for the variety, availability, and longevity of its flowers, the quality of the vases, as well as its “user-friendly website and fair pricing.”

In a recent comment, one five-star reviewer offered a take that goes directly against the charges made against the brand by so many on other sites:

This company is always on time & always consistent with the product that is expected. In addition, they have corrected any mistakes and that is another plus why my wife & I continue to use them. We have used them for sending flowers to family, friend and even each other when it is time for an anniversary, birthday, or just to say Hi and surprise each other.”

That opinion is seconded on a Reddit thread that is largely dedicated to trashing ProFlowers and other online flower delivery services. Responding to the negative feedback, one repeat purchaser said:

In my experience, proflowers has awesome customer service. You shouldn’t have an issue either getting your money back or having a replacement set send out. Obviously you can’t replace timing on Valentine’s Day, unfortunately. Regardless, give them a call or post the photo on their FB page. They will make this right.”

Is ProFlowers Worth It?

ProFlowers Review

I considered several factors while writing this ProFlowers review in order to decide whether or not I should recommend this service.

While the brand does have its defenders, the repeated reports of delays or errors in delivery, less-than-ideal flower condition, and poor customer service leads us to suggest that you might want to look elsewhere.

ProFlowers has left many customers “hanging on special occasions” and leaving much to be desired when it comes to customer service.

While some customers have had great experiences, this ProFlowers review agrees with one of the many negative reviewers, who recommends buying your flowers from a local florist to “avoid frustration and an incurable headache.”

ProFlowers Promotions & Discounts

If you’ve got any questions about this brand that were not addressed in this ProFlowers review, there’s nothing for it but to get in touch with the brand itself.

To avoid confusion, the company did not make its contact number a phoneword like “1800 ProFlowers,” as that would have caused brand confusion with one of its competing services, 1-800-Flowers.
