Mother’s Day is just around the corner and each year thousands of people will place flower orders for the special day. Your BBB is warning consumers that not all online florists are the same! While some people are extremely happy with their online floral purchases, others find themselves disappointed when the flowers don’t arrive on time, or don’t arrive at all. Your BBB offers the following tips before ordering Mother’s Day flowers online:
Read the fine print. Consumers should make sure to read the terms and conditions before making any online purchase to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Find out is there are additional delivery fees or charges for canceling your order.
Start with trust. Check out the company with BBB at www.bbb.org to see what other consumers’ experiences have been. You may end up saving yourself a lot of grief and disappointment.
Allow time for shipping. Check with the retailer to make sure that you have allowed enough time for delivery by your specified date. Make sure that this date is specified clearly and guaranteed when you order.
