Use Sips By?
I received an offer through my phone carrier for a free sample box of tea by sips by. My boyfriend is a tea drinker so I thought we’d try it out. He wasn’t impressed and felt the tea would have otherwise been over priced. When signing up, they ask for a card number so I gave one that was a temporary card that expired shortly after accepting this offer. At the time I was not aware I was signing up for a subscription, and thought I would be receiving a sample box. Fast forward the following month, after not being able to process my card, the company somehow got my PayPal information and charged my account! I absolutely never gave them my PayPal information and can’t imagine where they got it from. I made a complaint with support (Katie) and even with explaining this fraud they refuse to give me a refund. Worse I feel my identity was violated. Do not use this company.
I don’t think it’s worth it - a lot of the teas are offered in the stores and you can buy full packs of teas for less than this - all you get are 4 samples of tea bags based on the profile that is created. The teas are not special or new brands or unique offerings. It’s like I went through my pantry and put a few tea bags in a box and sent it to a friend. Ridiculous - it was a gift to me so not complaining just expected more - I have other subscription boxes that are super generous and allows me to try new brands that I wouldn’t of known about especially small business owners. This is just taking store bought teas and putting in a box - not worth it - waste of money!!! I can’t believe people like this- to each their own I guess
$15 for four samples? Samples of tea I can get FREE by contacting any tea company? Awful. Sips By makes it seem this would be a wonderful gift idea. I would be mortified to have anyone receive this as a gift. $15 per month on a subscription basis so when you are fed up you have to fight with them to get out of it. It's not truly free shipping, you're paying $15 to get less than 2 ounces of tea samples sent to you. Um, that's some waaaaaaaaaaay overpriced fancy math "free" shipping!
I absolutely love Sips by! You can't beat the number of samples for $15/month. My favorite tea so far has been the Pinky Up Sugar Cookie tea.
