We are…close…to having everything for these kits. Once we get everything (hopefully tomorrow) we’ll start building these out. My current estimate is we’ll finish building them by the end of next week and start shipping after that.
It super awesome you guys are offering this. It was a blast. Not that I would do it again but really cool you kept us in the loop sent a post card and all the emails. Honestly I think I hear more from you guys then I did my kids.
This whole adventure has been outstanding. Forget that the original order was the same day I got fired from my job. Forget that my wife actually “adopted” my Quip toothbrush so I will never know if I liked it or not. Forget that my memory is so bad that I would have completely forgotten that I ordered the Quip in the first place if they never shipped it and never told me. Forget all that because of the way that the Mediocre folks at Meh made this one of the most fun online purchases I have ever experienced, and I was a long time Woot!-er way before they sold out, er, um, got invested in.
I have told several people about this adventure since the first email announcing the supposed theft, and I know that because of those stories, Meh has picked up a few new folks to click daily on the Meh button, perhaps some of them will even buy something someday, who knows!
Thank you, Meh. The consistent humor coupled with honesty and truly amazing customer relations sets you apart from the rest of the online deal-proffering crowd.
Now, just don’t let all of this go to your head and cause you to do something truly fucking stupid and sell yourselves to the big A.
Member 049211 checking in here. I love this! It’s hard to overstate how awesomely glittery this swag is! It’s hard to capture the fullness of its glittery glory, but perhaps, in some small way, these gifs will give you an idea of it.
@Ignorant translation. Option 1. Mailman is a MEHmember and decided to keep it for himself. Option 2. You did not hear his telekinetic message to come out and get your package, hence the fail. Option 3. Like many mail people, yours is lazy and did not want to carry your box to the door.
I’ve worn the shirt (yes, in public) and used the bag at the grocery store, and frankly after being asked more than a few times I’m unable to tell the story of this toothbrush saga in any meaningful, humorous or even interesting way. My reply has devolved into “If I have to explain, you wouldn’t understand”.
Honestly, there is no greater truth about this whole mess than that - and I got a HOT PINK toothbrush out of the deal to boot!
@redrock0597 I’m in your club as well. I think since we suffered twice as much trauma as those who ONLY ordered one toothbrush…all the daily weeping, worrying, gnashing of teeth…I think we deserve three, four, or heck SIX times damages! Isn’t that the way our litigious society works? Oh meh…I’ll take my one & cower in the corner until Spring I guess.
I’m coming out really far ahead on this. I mean, I deserve it for still being VMP, but… The only reason I’m in this club is because my roommate wanted the quip and knew I got free shipping. He asked me to order it and handed me cash. He got his toothbrush, eventually… I’m not sharing the souvenirs.
I received a tracking number, but the tracking stopped two days ago, when the “package left shipping facility” … so my package is neither shipped nor unshipped. While I appreciate the comedic value, I’ll be bummed if it doesn’t show up.
#01180 … it’s been a great ride. Meh, you have shown real class with the way you handled this entire debacle. (however, if saying that offends the Meh mediocre mentality, please ignore this post and move on).
#00040 here. Not only did I discover the best toothbrush I have ever owned. But along with it came a free journey of absurd proportions, highly anticipated email updates, a meh discount code, a schooling in the american legal system, a dope ass coin, a dope ass shirt, a dope ass bag, a dope ass pink hotel toothbrush, and best of all, the bank had $19 less of my money to lend out in a high interest loan while the whole thing went down. Can we do this all over again?
I am distinctly uncomfortable that I just got back from my dental xray and cleaning appointment to have the toothbrush kit arrived today. It is certainly illuminati related.
Meanwhile I quite like the quip brush, its much thinner and more comfortable than my oral B electric monstrosity, but I’ve already changed the batteries twice and the button seems to randomly not activate and vibration power seems to weaken and vary quickly.
I truly enjoyed the ride! You guys are awesome! All I was expecting from the order was to try a toothbrush that I didn’t want to subscribe for and it turned into a journey of a lifetime. BTW, the toothbrush is kinda MEH!
Mrs. G was hoping for the IRK instead of the toothbrushes. Tried the toothbrush on a business trip a few weeks ago. Meh. It’s fine for travel but I’m not giving up my Sonicare at home. But the Souvenir kit? voiceless-chilly-morning !
Thanks for the assist, meh! I gave one of the Quips I ordered to my wife for Val’s Day, if only because of the shipping container it came in. I want to shake the hand of their packaging designer, if only because they have chutzpah in spades!
As my first Meh order, I feel like I’ve been hazed into the club somehow. Regardless, thanks for the adventure and the awesome gift, Meh! At this point, more excited about the souvenir kit than the toothbrush.
Just saw my automatically made order. I never noticed the original email, it got lost in the daily meh emails with weird subjects. Looking back, it says if I didn’t buy one by 2/22 I’d have it automatically ordered. Weird that it didn’t do that until right now.
@andrd I missed it until way after they were “sold out”, too. I wasn’t expecting to get one, but today an order confirmation showed up. I’m a little bummed about the XL shirt size after a pretty substantial weight loss has made all of my other Meh shirts unwearable. However, I’m pretty sure I don’t deserve one of these kits I’m not going to complain about the shirt being too big for me and too small for my spouse. Haha
@andrd@PurplePawprints If you were a first offering purchaser and never cancelled your order, you qualified for one of the free kits. Those, who did not respond, automatically received a size XL shirt. Thus, those who wanted an XL didn’t have to do anything. Everyone else, who wanted a different size, needed to submit an order.
If that’s a coin that I see in the picture, if I’m getting a Schrödinger’s Toothbrush Club coin, then it will be worth more than all the wait. The wait for this kit and the two different times I waited for a toothbrush. It might even make up for every time I have waited at the DMV.
Well far as I can tell, I’ve got the highest number yet - 04947. Makes some sense I suppose, since I didn’t have any part in the quip debacle. I just like blowing money on random stuff. I like the heft of the coin. Thanks Meh.
Oh and my Meh. sticker is bent which is very meh.
Curse you, Meh. My wife wanted to know what Schrodinger’s Toothbrush was, so I had to spend fifteen minutes I’ll never get back telling her the whole freaking story, starting with, “You know that small electric toothbrush I pack when we go away? Well…”
#1837 This totally amazed my children and made my day. It was, like the best thing ever. Saw the delivery and wondered what the heck garbage have I ordered this time…? Opened to reveal so many amazing gifts, each one better than the last and overall far superior to the quip itself which turned out to be of the most mediocre quality and design, perfectly suited to where I got it from.
@crapstick It’s a trick! They know if they don’t send the coupon codes we’ll be tempted to just pay $20 for it.
Even though I see through this deception, I’m still really tempted to buy one for fear they will sell out…
What a ride. The ride, in the end, was much better than the actual quip, which my wife and I find uncomfortable. Oh well, good as a back-up travel. At least, hey, I can say, did that, got the T-shirt (soon), so …
Since I want the XL size, I don’t have to order. Right? That seems odd, but it’s what the email says. Don’t forget to charge me tax and shipping. Oh, forget the tax, since it’s free. You can use order phrase secret-breakfast-octopus. Ok?
Has anyone else reported their QUIPS draining a AAA in record time? It was DOA, I replaced the battery, tested, it worked, and put it in meh drawer for a few weeks, went on trip, packed it, tried it….didn’t work again.
@cschrader same here…exactly. i’ve used 3 more AAA batteries since arrival and all fail within a week. so, i just use the toothbrush, rinse it, and lift out the motor a bit so there is no contact with the battery. PITA, but at least i don’t have to replace the battery every other time i use it…
Did this sale at some point replace the extended battery cases that were sold last Friday? I was clicking through the meh faces yesterday in order to find the cold brew bottles instead of just clicking the orders page since I like to make my life difficult. This morning I discovered I had left a couple of the tabs open and one was this sale. It looks like the link is redirecting here instead of the battery cases. I did purchase the toothbrushes through the VMP sale, but missed out on the initial sales. Now I’m just really bummed I missed out on the mystery bag and shirt. @meh, can you just take my money for them? Pretty please?
@RiotDemon I figured that’s what happened based on the posting showing the 15th. Strange that the link for what should be the battery cases is redirecting here. Oh well, I’ve missed out on things before and I’m sure I’ll miss out on things in the future. That’s life.
@RiotDemon LOL I don’t think I even realized I was typing the @, I’ve been spending more time on Facebook where they are @ meh, so I may have just subconsciously typed it. As soon as I saw the response I figured that it was just a user who happened to have a good choice in username (with a slight chance that it was actual meh staff having fun).
As for the link, yes I was mass opening the February faces in new tabs starting at the previous day and going back for a bunch of tabs till I found the cold brew bottles (again, maybe because just clicking my orders would have been too lazy :-P) and the link that was meh .com/deals/2-22-2019 which should have been the battery cases linked here instead
So I have something that’s called “informed delivery” from my post office. It says that there is a package that left yesterday from “medicore labs.” Could it be that these have shipped and you guys haven’t updated yet?
Starting to worry about mine. Last update: Your item departed a shipping partner facility at 4:05 pm on March 22, 2019 in GREENWOOD, IN 46143. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date.
Usually doesn’t take this long for the hand-off to usps…
My package has been trying to find the post office since label creation on 3/22. Poor baby - I wonder if it will take the same amount of time to arrive that the toothbrushes did? (If you see my package and can help it find its way, I’d appreciate it. It’s got to be so cold and scared by now.)
@aldwardo yeah this was my last update before it went radio silent

Arrived Shipping Partner Facility, USPS Awaiting Item
LOS ANGELES, CA 90040
Your item arrived at a shipping partner facility at 11:04 pm on March 22, 2019 in LOS ANGELES, CA 90040. This does not indicate receipt by the USPS or the actual mailing date.
I had another meh package go through that facility on the 25th and that one is out for delivery today.
I got mine today, coin number to 2602.
But I was wondering, I thought that I read that someone received two coins because they purchased two quips. If that’s the case I guess I’m owed one, if not I guess one is enough because this is too big to fit in the toll booth basket on the parkway
@MrIncognedo For what it’s worth, and if it gives you hope, mine was trapped on it’s way to Sparks NV until yesterday, but it showed up today, and for a bonus, I have a two digit number (19), so hang on little tomato!
