I recently won two giveaways from Uprinting- I won a banner and 500 business cards.
Both times the prize came with a rather short deadline for ordering. I wasn't able to order my banner because I was on vacation and wanted to use pictures I had saved on CDs. And so the deadline to order (not claim, order) the banner passsed.
And now I'm trying to order the business cards. First, you have to upload your own design. When I won postcards from Vistaprint they were very generous and let me choose two of their designs to use.
Now, that I have designed my own cards there have been technical problems with my proofs which caused me to recieve several emails from several different represntatives each requesting me to do another thing. And none of them knew anything about me being contacted by someone else.
The proof issue has been resolved but now they are trying to charge me for the business cards. The computer generate message I keep getting tells me that the coupon code they gave me has expired- even thought the deadline is not for another 10 or so days. I've sent one more email and if its not resolved at that, I am to the point where I don't care anymore.
Because of this experience I will never buy from Uprinting and will never have a Uprinting giveaway on my blog. Before I won the giveaway I never considered Uprinting a suitable alternative to Vistaprint because there prices are so much higher. Now that I have worked with Uprinting I now KNOW that the are not worth my business.
