Pros: Online and no waiting around the mall.
Cons: No Po Box delivery.
The Bottom Line: Since I can't use the real store, I will always use this site for my special gifts.Full Review
When I lived up in the Bay Area, CA, there a a ton of local malls and each one had a Things Remembered Store. As far back as me being 16 and working, I bought gifts at my local TRS. Well now I live in a small area and the nearest mall is over 70 miles round trip. And that mall has no Things Remembered. They have a copy-kat store and it is awfull.
Thanks to TazzyFoxy I found my favorite store, online. This was a while ago and after using it twice I feel sure enough to write on the site now.
ThingsRemembered.com has 7 catagories:
Birthday- 51 pages- 404 items
Children- 6 pages- 47 items
Corporate Gifts- 21 pages- 168 items
Gifts For The Home- 16 pages- 127 items
Celebrate Summer- 3 pages- 22 items
Wedding- 8 pages- 59 items
Clearance- 1 page 4 items
You have multiple ways of looking for a gift. Above links, search by product, search by SKU#, or an advance search engine that has 3 catagories to narrow you search:
and or recipient
and or gift by price
There are a few links at the bottom of the home page: Customer Service; Jobs; Affiliate Programs
There is a 15% off discount on your first purchase. To order online you must create an account, but once this is done you do not have to fill in Bill To or Ship To, again, unless the ship to IS different. There is a wonderful 800 # in case you run into an ordering problem. 1-800-274-7367 is the toll free customer service # or you can e-mail your problem to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The worst is that your address on your credit card has to match the billing address. We do not have mail service in our town, so everybody has a Po Box. I have asked and they recommend that your CC bill have both addresses and then when you fill in the Billing Address that is okay. The other worry I had my first time is that the gift getter had a Po Box as well in another town. That person lives out in the mountains and he didn't have mail service either, nor UPS delivery. (I didn't know that) But UPS did call my dad and they arranged a drop off place at the local Post Office. I don't know if everyone will be this lucky, but at least you know that some UPS people care that they deliver their packages.
You do have to have an account to even see the proposed final price of your purchases. But with the info below you should have an idea of the cost. TR-online accepts American Express, Visa, Master Card, and Discover.You will have to have the CID# handy to finalize your purchase. That CID# is the final 3/4 digit # on the back of your card where you are SUPPOST to sign your card.
Shipping: all orders out within 72 hours
2nd. Day- add 6.00
Overnight- add 12.00
Gift box and Card are available for an additional 2.95 which is cheaper than mailing to yourself, adding your card, and then mailing the gift to the gift getter.
14.99 Travel Mug
-3.00 15% discount for your first purchase
I will be really using this site come Christmas and will be using the gift box and card extra as well.
