FREE BPA-FREE BOTTLES AND SIPPY CUPS
« on: May 03, 2008, 02:44:08 PM »
For those of you have not heard, Avent is offering either 2 free bottles (BPA free) or 2 free sippy cups (BPA free).  All you have to do is call: 1-800-843-2174 and speak to a customer care representative.  Don't worry if you get a french message at the beginning of your call, it will be followed by a english version.

Apparently Zellers,Walmart and London Drugs are offering store credit on BPA bottles and sippy cups.  It would be wise to contact your local store to see what is on their recall list.

Spud,
Unfortunately you have been given the wrong information!  I have called myself prior to posting and have received the offer, so I'm not too sure why you got denied.  Did you say that you were a child care provider.  The offer was posted originally in the Ottawa Sun earlier on last week, however i have read it on several other forums. The offer is extended Canada wide from what i can make out. 
If you research each individual company, you will find out what their offers are.  A simple google search works just fine.

Shoppers Drug Mart is also accepting refunds on BPA products as long as it is their LIFE brand.

Whom did you call, spud? I was just reading up on other forums and people are getting their free samples. I'd call back and complain about misinformation. Their CSRs should be aware of these promotions/exchanges.

FYI, a mom i know called today and was offered a sippy cup.  She was told that they were running low on inventory so they started to offer only one.

When calling ask for their Free BPA free Sippy Cup/Bottle promotion.  They will ask for your child's age to know which one to send, as there are different ones for different stages! 

Hope this helps.

MORE READING on BPA!!!

There is an extensive write up at www. Philips.ca ; who sells/manufactures the Avent bottles...

It is informative to read and also has the 1-800-843-2174 number listed to get the free sippies or bottles!
Thanks!

Laura,

This link doesn't work. It looks like they removed it from their servers. I wonder if the promotion is still valid.

If the first number of 1-800-843-2174 is not working from your area...

I was just successful in calling a Customer Service Representative at Avent at:
             1-800-542-8368

She was most helpful and offered me an assortment of sizes as well as the 20$ rebate form to be used following the purchase of 20.00 of Avent products!!

Try this anyone who is having problems with the first number, as I did...

Also website www.avent.philips.com has more info, to read as well.
