FTD offers significant savings not only on gorgeous flowers, but also spa sets, chocolates, wine baskets and more. And if your members do order flowers, FTD has their "Good as Gold" 7-Day Satisfaction Guarantee that the flower arrangements will last at least 7 days - guaranteed. Plus, they have same day delivery available.

With Shop America, credit union members can save, get cash back and have access to more than 1,200 online retailers, including some of the largest and most popular, at great discounts. And every time they earn $10 or more, they’ll get a check as a thank you!
