Edible Fruit Baskets: Scoring a Deal and Skirting the Extras

Not all edible fruit basket purveyors feed the bargain hunters thirst for a discount. But among the most recognized fruit bouquet company names, Harry and David, Cherry Moon Farms and Edible Arrangements, there are a few tips to handpick some of these  sweet and tempting deals and promotions.

Seasonal organic fruit is commonly on special at the longest standing fruit bouquet company, Harry and David. As of this posting, a purchase of two-boxes of Oregold Peaches earns a 50 percent discount on the second box. Another juicy edible fruit basket deal at Harry and David is the club membership, available in three, six, nine and 12-month memberships with free delivery (Starting at $99.95) 

Note that most of Harry and David’s organic fruit specials are shipped ripe, meaning that the edible fruit basket’s contents are for immediate consumption. 

Cherry Moon Farms also features edible fruit baskets for the frugal minded. On the fruit bouquet company website, under  special values the “Large Organic  Fruit Sampler” includes complimentary week day shipping. The edible fruit basket is comprised  of 16-pieces of organic fruit, including  a pair of Bartlett or Comice pears, Fuji apples, navel oranges along with, six bananas and four-kiwis. (All for  $39.99).

Edible fruit basket consumer tip: Skip the free-shipping rebate presented at Cherry Moon Farms. Unless you’re a regular online shopper, who spends more than $500 a year in shipment costs with the 1500 stores affiliated with FreeShipping.com, the cash back rebate is not worth the time.

A promotion at Edible arrangements is not available in edible fruit baskets but thoughtfully packed in a box for $15. The catch is that this deal is available only  as a to-go order. Nevertheless, a half a dozen of chocolate dipped bananas, apples, strawberries and even pineapples make for a sweet last minute gift.

Edible fruit basket consumer tip: When placing an online order at Edible Arrangements, be sure to really evaluate the add-on. Chocolate dipped fruits, balloons and cards quickly ring up the bill.
