I'm at resort in Jamaica now. Celebrating my girl's birthday. She likes flowers. I went to concierge to order a bouquet. I'm a captive audience. It was nearly $100 for a 6 rose bouquet yet! I bit my lip and said I'll take it, I just need it before dinner. I get an email back telling me since it was a Sunday they can't get them! I figured a resort hotel was 24/7!
At home my local supermarket (Wegmans) has a HUGE flower department. Probably 1/3 the price as well.

For your dilemma, what did the contract say? No changes permitted after an order has been placed? If so, you are likely out of luck. If not, just dispute with your credit card company.

For how much money you make, you're telling me you waste your precious time reading a contract every time you're spending $65? Terms must be clear if not obvious to be valid. This is an unfair business practice if this is how they operate, fraudulently in my opinion. If I wasn't allowed to cancel, they need to tell me and wouldn't bother bullshitting me claiming the order was already cancelled.

When I want to get my wife flowers I go to the local grocery store and get a bouquet for $4-$7.

I don't know how places like 1800-FLOWERS are still in business. It's the biggest ripoff ever.

at the begging stages of dating

Yes, as I recall from my years of trying to socialize above my natural dating rank, I think that was somewhere between the delusional period and the hopeless stage, but before the restraining order phase.

Lol. Her ass would make Axel go straight. There are things about me you will never know. You think you know who I am, but you dont. It's not easy a situation to be honest. The relationship is unhealthy for both of us, that you are right about. She told me she is only happy when she is with me and she forgets her miserable life.

For someone you are going to hand the flowers to, I have found that the grocery store to be the best option, too. Mrs. Joeman likes carnations and is meh about roses. I can usually get a nice bouquet of carnations for a couple of bucks.

It's a different story if we want to, say, send flowers to her Grandma in New York. That's where the big national guys are helpful. (We used ProFlowers for just this recently.)

Also, sometimes you can score bonus points if you send your SO flowers at work, especially if it makes her coworkers envious. ;) In this case, I would go with a local florist to deliver them. However, I have used the big guys for this service as well. The price ends up being about the same.

I would suggest calling back again. It often takes overnight for the servers to update the days new orders. Now that your order is visible to the service rep, they can cancel it.

I was going to say something similar to this. It's so very true.

Don't be mean to me! I was trying to help.... As someone who came a whiskers length from losing $1000 to Wiz on the Props Bet challenge, clearly I don't read every contract.... If you feel you were being treated unfairly then do what the two previous posters suggested. The credit card company is your ally.

Perhaps he used a debit card. I'm not sure if the same rules apply when you use a debit card. I seemed to remember it was harder to get your money back when using a debit card. Years ago, when I used my debit card, I totally got screwed by a mobile mechanic. My car wouldn't start and it seemed as if it was the starter and coil or some combination. He said it was all fixed. It started up and I got it home. Later that day the same thing was happening again. The guy said he couldn't come for a few days. I figured out it was just a loses wire, but he did a bunch of unnecessary work and still didnt fix the problem.

I had lots of proof he didn't do the work he claimed, he didn't change the parts he claimed, and he lied about what was wrong. I had statements from two mechanics, pictures, a time line, texts and a recording of the guy trying to BS me. I went into the bank and presented everything and they still wouldn't give me back the money. They said unless somome use my debit card without my authorization there was nothing they could do other than go to small claims court.

I apologize, didn't mean to sound mean. If I ever win a beer from Wizard, I'll transfer it to you. derp derp derp. I must let you know, by forum standards, I'm the Forrest Gump, so I probably will never win a beer.
