Gifts / Shopping - Provider Changes

I was an avid user of the 800-baskets shopping benefit. I would use the AARP discount and sent numerous flowers, baskets and gifts using them. I logged in today to send a few gift baskets and now we only have FTD. On EACH and EVERY order I initiated, the shipping costs is $25!!!! What's that about. Why did they change it? I doubt if I ever use this 'benefit' again. The shipping costs basically doubles the cost despite the 25%/30% discount. It's ridiculous. Can we go back to the previous provider????
