Universal now sells digital films attached to flower bouquets


If you’ve always thought that flower arrangements could benefit from having a copy of “Jaws” inside, then a new offer may be for you.

That’s the idea behind a new partnership between 1-800-Flowers.com and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The companies are teaming up to allow customers to choose from hundreds of Universal films that can be added to purchases from the online retailer. Prices range from $ 6.99 for older movies to $ 9.99 for newer movies and gift recipients can choose any movie they want.

Gift recipients will receive codes that can be redeemed through Movies Anywhere, a digital movie service operated by Disney in partnership with Warner Bros., Universal and Sony Pictures.
