Daily Deal, CashBack, CashBack Credit/Debit Card
First we need to find a Cashback website that offers us the most money back for shopping through them. (What's cashback? When you shop a website/vendor through one of these websites, they will put aside a portion of you purchase and refund it to you via paypal, check, or deposit. It adds up real quick)
Fatwallet - Fatwallet is the orginator of cashback online
TopCashBack - TopCashBack Offers the Highest Rates I have Ever Seen
Ebates - Ebates Offers Great CashBack
CouponCactus - Coupon Cactus has a lot of "SALES" where cashback can double or triple
Now is when the science begins... find one of these daily deal site on any of the above cashback sites.
(For Example I bought the LivingSocial special below through TopCashBack at 4%.)
Daily Deal Sites As of Feb 4th:
$20 for $40 credit at FTD
$15 for $30 Credit at ProFlowers
Login to TopCashBack, and search "Living Social" and click "Shop Now" at 4%. After you have purchased your certificate with CashBack (And buying it also with you cashback credit/debit card), return again to the cashback websites and see who offers the most from these flower vendors.
TopCashBack again offered 21% Cashback at ProFlowers.
Follow the "shop now" link through TopCash Back, and shop around like normal and locate your flowers/etc, then enter your Living Social promo code for the discount.

Rocky Mountain Chocolates:Included!
Large Ginger Vase:Included!
