If you talk to Joe and me for any length of time, you’ll learn that we are staunch supporters and allies of the LGBTQ+ community. I speak the absolute truth when I say that some of my best friends are gay. I’m very much a live-and-let-live kind of person and if you’re attracted to people who are the same gender as you, or if you’re attracted to both genders, or if your gender identity doesn’t match the sex you were assigned at birth so you live your life as the other gender, that’s all fine with me.
All that being said, I’m very happily straight and am not a lesbian. But I think Frontier believes I am because I just got this offer from them:
In case the printing is too small:
Love is in BLOOM! 1,500 miles for you and make her swoon!
Earn 1,500 FRONTIER Miles!
Spoil her with a Teleflora Valentine’s Day bouquet and earn 1,500 miles for yourself. Teleflora partners with local florists so bouquets arrive beautifully arranged and hand delivered fresh to your loved one’s door.
Her? I should make HER swoon? I should spoil HER?
They could have just as easily said “Make your partner swoon!” and “Spoil the love of your life with…” I’m just sayin’…
So anyway, Valentine’s Day is coming up and, as the ad suggests, if you want to buy your favorite person flowers, Frontier will give you 1500 miles if you buy them from Teleflora. Just use promotional code PESLFR15 and the offer can be redeemed over the phone or on Teleflora’s website.
Is it a great deal? Meh. If you figure Frontier miles are worth about 1¢ each, you’re looking at a value of roughly $15.00. Meanwhile, Groupon has a 50% off coupon where you can pay $20 for $40 worth of flowers. Teleflora itself has 20% off flowers, plants or gift baskets (if you’re getting an expensive bouquet, you’ll beat the $15 Frontier value). And if you skip Teleflora altogether and go with FTD, right now you can get 30% cashback if you order them through Rakuten (and if you’re new to Rakuten, you can sign up with our referral link and receive $10 back when you make a purchase through the portal worth over $25. We’ll receive a referral bonus, which we’re always thankful for).
Meanwhile, just for the record, Teleflora has its gender-neutral act together:
Take that, Frontier Airlines!
