1-800-FLOWERS.COM AND UNIVERSAL PICTURES HOME ENTERTAINMENT TEAM UP TO ENHANCE THE GIFTING EXPERIENCE THROUGH NEW DIGITAL MOVIE OFFERING POWERED BY SMARTGIFT
CARLE PLACE, N.Y., Aug. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 1-800-Flowers.com® has teamed up with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment to bring the magic of movies to the gifting experience. For the first time ever, Universal is making some of its most popular films available to gift-givers as an add-on purchase. 1-800-Flowers.com customers now have the unique opportunity to purchase a digital movie as a complement to their gift, while also letting their gift recipients select the movie of their choice from a diverse offering of film titles.
At launch, hundreds of films from the Universal vault will be available as a digital movie add-on, including a wide variety of high-profile new releases, such as Trolls World Tour and The Invisible Man, along with film gems such as Jurassic World, Jaws, Back to the Future, and more. Customers can pair the gift of entertainment from two budget-friendly pricing tiers - $6.99 for award-winning classic and popular hit films - and $9.99 for blockbuster hits and newer releases. The movie is the recipient's to keep, helping them build their personal library through the free digital movie collection app, Movies Anywhere.
