So back in February I purchased a Homerrun deal - similar to ebates and groupon. It was for $20 worth of tea for $10 from ESP Emporium (tea)_.
As you'd expect someone with a tea blog, I've got a crapload of tea! So I didn't really think about using the code until recently.
I just tried to place an order with them, and ESP told me the coupon was expired! WTF?
So I'm emailing both Homerrun and ESP to figure out what's going on. The coupon said I had until Sept. 1.
I've never had this happen with groupon, although, come to think of it, I think one of those expires soon too. I guess this is how they can make money... people like me buy them and never use them.
But I'm annoyed. I haven't tried ESP tea before and with all the tea companies out there with great customer service - and no false promises - I may have to revolt against them... although, maybe it's not their fault.
Stay tuned. I'll let you know which - Homerrun, ESP, or both - are revoked from Keen Tea Thyme.
In the meantime, I did remove Homerrun from my list of Tea Scores and More. It can't be trusted...not yet.
Not a good way to start the week. I need tea...and a nap.
