When you’re trying to figure out where to buy cheap flowers, the biggest tip I can offer you is to skip the local florist. Shop at grocery stores instead. Especially for roses. When I look up my favorite florist in town, I see that red roses are $50 per dozen. That’s $4.17 per stem! If you know how to make your flowers last longer, you can keep them beautiful for at least as long as the florist can.

And when you know where to buy cheap flowers, it can only mean one thing: money saved is money you can spend on wine or chocolate to go along with your flowers. Trust me, your special someone will love that.

Note offers, prices, and colors may vary by region or store.

Where to Find Roses the Cheapest for Valentines Day 2024


We can all admit that roses are timeless and incredibly popular. Most grocery stores sell roses, and instead of paying upwards of $50 for a dozen roses at a local florist, aim to pay more like $0.80 – $1 per stem when you buy from grocery stores. (Yes, that’s like 80% cheaper.) Here's the cheapest and the most expensive place to buy roses:

  • Winner: Costco, $0.79 per stem

  • Loser: Edible Arrangements, $5 per stem

Costco offers the cheapest roses when you buy them in-store: two dozen for $18.99 (less than Costco’s bulk price).

At $0.79 per rose, you’re getting these flowers even cheaper than buying in bulk from, where they’re $1.30 per stem when you buy 50. Of course, there may be other reasons to order online (like convenience or you need so many the store cannot accommodate you), but price shouldn’t be one of them. See all Costco deals.

Walmart roses are $9.97 per dozen.

Walmart’s prices are the same as Trader Joe’s at $9.97 per dozen roses. But that’s where the similarities end. Unless it’s a holiday like Valentine’s or Mother’s Day, Walmart’s rose selection is a bit weak, and some bouquets were even quite wilted the last time we checked in-store prices.

You could also go with the mini 6-rose bouquet at Walmart. They’re $4.97, which of course is cheaper than a full dozen, but the price per rose, $0.83 is the same if you buy the dozen. See all Walmart deals.

Trader Joe’s has a dozen roses for $9.99, but watch for $8.99 the week before Valentine's Day.

At just $0.83 per rose, Trader Joe’s offers Walmart-like prices. Plus, the roses are in good shape, and there’s a vast selection. Trader Joe’s is my pick if you want the classic 1-dozen roses. Watch for them to knock their dozen-roses price down to $8.99 the week leading up to Valentine’s Day. The only hitch is you need to be ready to buy them early. The deal ends typically by Feb. 10.
