Can we enter more than one Haiku?

Thank you Terri! Absolutely, send as many haikus as you like!

Do you want each one emailed to you individually, or can they be sent en mass?

Happy Birthday!!!!!

Do the samplers qualify? or are they considered “sale” teas?

Can we buy them to qualify for free tea? Can we choose them as our free tea?

Thank you! :)

The samplers do qualify. Yes, to both. :)

Killer’s Vanilla! Whew!

Yes!!!! You are the winner! Wow, that was quick. :)

Kittenna said

Haha, I just happened to see your Facebook post and decided to go for it! Opened up a window with your site, blog, fbook page, and Steepster :D I knew the answers to half of the questions without looking them though.

Kittenna said

Also, YAY! :D

Hahaha! I definitely thought it would take longer than that. Here I was thinking some of the questions would be too tough! Good job! :) I’ve put you on our special offer list. Contact me when you place an order and we will refund $15 from your next order.

ackckckc!! I was just getting ready to enter all the answers…congrats Kittenna!

Kittenna said

Yaaay, thanks! Given that I read the rules, I assume that I can’t apply the coupon to today’s pending order :P

Sorry Terri! Kittenna was just super fast today.

Kittenna-Actually, you can. Since it is a certificate it is like money, not a special offer. It can be applied to teas or shipping charges. The winner of contest #2 will not be able to use their special offer for this order though.

Kittenna said

Oh, that’s awesome! I shall do that then. We have a $40+$15 order set to go, just waiting to see if Sil wants in, which would perhaps bump us up to the next level.

Excellent! :)

Yes, congratulations! That was some impressive speed.
