What Is Temu, and Have You Used it?

Recommended Posts

Every time I open The Sand Trap I get a banner on top for Temu. 
Looks like an on-line version of a combination of a Five-And-Below Store and a Chinese Wal-mart. 

Anyone ever order from them? 
Success? ... Failure? 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

I don't know, except that I've only gotten a lot of spam with Temu in the subject.

Ads are mildly personalized (less so for me with iCloud Private Relay), so you may not be seeing what others are seeing @ChetlovesMer. That's why you also see all those ads for blow-up "friends" and math tutoring books. 🤣

Temu ads drive me nuts. See them everywhere.

My wife has used it quite a few times - most of it is 2nd / 3rd tier level quality,  they shrink wrap and bundle everything.  You don’t have to worry about boxes.  I’m still trying to figure if anything sporting goods related is really worth it.  Figuring most to be name brand knockoffs and/or outright counterfeit.

Do not tell those that advertise on this site, but I am really really good at ignoring adds.  Never even noticed Temu, but that does not meet they have not been available to see.

I googled them for "reviews" (see below).  Now 1 link does not equate to fact, but BBB rates them 2 out of 5 starts is not a good start.  Also the comment "Many recent complaints about Temu on the BBB website say that items never arrived or, if they did, took weeks or even months to arrive." in the BBB link does not instill confidence.

This showed up on my banner today.


t type circle golf club putter cover golf club head covers golf accessories golf supplies at the lowest price at Temu. Free shipping and returns on Sports & Outdoors on sale at Temu.

In all seriousness, isn't this just a straight up rip off? 

I felt like I was violating some kind of trademark law by just clicking on it.

There was one of those consumer reports from a news station in Orlando saying that Temu was famous for data stealing.

How interesting. 

You know what they say, if it seems to good to be true. It probably is.

Yes, I have purchased from them.  Several small items at very low price.  Got what I wanted but the amount of emails and texts drove me nuts so I unsubscribed.  Figured if I found something else I wanted on their site, could do same process all over.

Same here. Like a damn spam virus. Maybe just a coincidence but after downloading the app and ordering something my spam phone calls and text messages jumped significantly.

FWIW, I ordered something else from them and the items were delivered yesterday. Great prices on what I purchased. As soon as package arrived, I again deleted the app and unsubscribed yet again.

TEMU is owned by the same company as TikTok. ByteDance. Definitely will share your data.

They also spent so much money on those Super Bowl ads and they were terrible.
