If you are looking to treat your loved one with some Valentine’s flowers, you will not beat the current offer from FTD Flowers AND 1-800-Flowers.

Get 30 American AAdvantage miles per dollar spent at FTD Flowers. Get 30 United MileagePlus miles per dollar at either FTD Flowers or 1-800-Flowers. Get 30 Delta SkyMiles per dollar at FTD Flowers. You can also collect miles to fly to Hawaii with Hawaiian Airlines, again at the rate of 30 miles per dollar spent at 1-800-Flowers.

This is a US only offer, but my UK readers can get a similar Avios deal from Apple Yard Flowers.

Most people value their AA etc Airmiles at 1.2 cents per mile, but if you are able to maximise your value out of your miles and get 1.5-2 cents of value per mile, then these flowers are almost free. Of course, you are the only person to know what the miles are worth to you, but this is certainly a rewarding way to treat your loved one (or yourself!).
