    Your ideas will work just fine with Tervis. We have a department store that puts them on sale now and then. That's when I stock up. Love the insulated bit and no rings anywhere.

    Yup! I also love my Tervis glasses. We live in hot, sunny, Arizona and use them to carry ice water with us when we are out and about. We fill 24 oz ones with ice, then add water and they will stay cold for several hours in in the car even if we are parked in the sun when it's 110-120 degrees out. Love them and wouldn't leave home without them!

    The things I learn on the Quilting Board! I've long lamented that I cannot find insulated mugs in the stores anymore, because my hot drinks get cold too fast in ceramic. Thanks to this thread I looked on Amazon, and not only found Tervis mugs, but found some with hummingbirds, which I love. A quick email to my son to order for me since he has Prime, and I'll have them sooner or later, either now and I'll pay him back, or later for my birthday. Thanks for the information, everyone!

    Yep, they are wonderful and made right near Fort Myers and certainly live up to their guarantee. Enjoy them.

    Mine work great, no sweating or leaks. I wash the lids by hand but that probably isn't necessary. The glasses go through the dishwasher fine.

    I love them! It gets really hot here, and when I take it out of my car after a shopping trip there is still ice left in it.
    The genuine Tervis glasses are the best ones. They are also great for hot beverages.

    I've had a set of 8 for more than 20 years. One got broken and it got thrown out -- they still sent me a new one. Now to get a replacement you have to send the broken one back. One other one came apart (inside came loose from the outside). Those are the only two I have ever replaced and they go in the dishwasher all the time.

    Yes , I still have 2 that are about 30 yrs old. Traded in 2 others that were bought at same time. Not as happy with the new choice of such a big glass to hold but I have some others too. Bought first ones in Venice Florida after 1972
    while camping.

    I have several of them, I really like them. If you manage to crack one, the company will replace it.

    Mine will sweat in humid weather. But always has ice water or tea in it. Works great when it is not too humid.

    Thank you for all of the glowing testimonies! We have an awesome independently owned kitchen shop in town and she stocks TONS of these . I ended up buying two of the 16 oz ones. ( buy local!) . I used it yesterday. Love the lid! No dribbles. One of my pet peeve on the many others that I have tried.

    Very interesting thread! I see these all the time at Bed Bath & Beyond but can never bring myself to spend the money on one. Guess I will get my coupons and go a-shopping!

    Do try them. They are a quality product and even when you buy the glass and the lid, you are still talking under $20. Use your Bed and Bath coupon to get it even less expensive. You will like them.

    Have had them for years and absolutely love them. I even put them in the dishwasher top rack. They are guaranteed and you can return them for replacement if there is a problem. I have done that at Bed Bath and Beyond.

    These are the only glasses we use. I wash them in the top rack of my dishwasher with no problems. The only issue they have is: Do not get any spray sunscreen on them. It will make them permanently cloudy. The company stands behind their product. We had a couple that leaked and they replaced them, no questions asked. That was several years ago and we haven't had any problems with them I like it that you can buy lids for the glasses.

    I love Tervis cups. They hold up better than the cheap ones and they stand behind their guarantee. Through the years, I have mailed lots of them back and they replace them with no problem.

    I have two tumblers still in use, given to us as a welcome to FL gift, in 1971. Have a set of 8, got in 1990. You can't beat them. Oh you can buy the cheap ones, but if they break, you'll have to buy new. Tervis you can replace, for us would be no big deal at 20 mile down the road.

    They have all kinds, short, tall, handles and most any kind of logo you desire. They DO stand by their warranty but have never had a problem with any of ours. It's all we ever used poolside. Also, I put them in the dishwasher. I kind of laugh when I think about the 2 plastic thermo glasses that have lasted 44 years. Expensive, well guess not very if one considers how long they have lasted. Just good old made in America product.
