My travel mugs!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I just wanted to show off my mugs- I love them! We got them from discountmugs and I'm pretty happy with the company. The mugs got here quickly, they're just what I ordered and the duty charges (I'm in Canada) weren't too bad. I shopped it around a bit and these mugs worked out to be cheaper than similar ones from 4imprint even including duty.

 

Here they are:

For some reason when I post this picture, though, it's squashing the pic and making the mug look shorter and wider than it is. Sorry about that- just keep in mind that they're actually taller and thinner lol.

 

I had them shipped to my FMIL to save a bit on shipping and she just sent me one so that I could see what they look like. She looked them all over and except for one mug that has a slightly loose catch and another with a slightly blurry logo they're all in perfect condition. The only issue that I had with them was that they told me the fuschia colour that I originally wanted for the logo wouldn't show up well against the black mugs. I went with a light pink instead but it looks a bit purple in some lights. No big deal to me, but if you're really fussy about your colours you may want to keep that in mind.

 

Oh, weirdly enough, they sent me 40 mugs but I ordered/ paid for only 30. I'm not sure why but I'm not going to worry about it- it's not like I can send them back anyway, they've been personalized. FMIL thinks that because one of the logos came out blurry they may have had to do an extra batch and then just sent them all to me. I'm not complaining!

 

ETA- aaarggh! I meant to post this in the favours section! Sorry ladies, I'll try to get a mod to move it.

So glad that you had success with discountmugs. They look great! I just ordered mine yesterday with my fingers croseed and hoping that it all works out!

 

Can I ask how much duty was? I'd like to get an idea of what to expect. Thanks!

No problem! For 30 mugs the duty was about $70. It's not super cheap, but the mugs were a lot cheaper than 4imprint (the Canadian company I looked into) so I still came out ahead.

You're lucky! I was sent a few LESS than what I ordered (from Discountmugs.com) and now am short sad.gif And they wouldn't send me the amount I was short by, only a partial refund. The cost they quoted me to re-order for the few missing was ridiculous and just wasn't worth it.

I had a terrible experience with them, but I'm glad to hear that maybe they've smartened up and now over send rather than under.

 

Sorry for the rant, they're SUPER cute!! cheesy.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
