SHOPPERS have been left baffled after their online orders from ASOS came with tea bags in the bottom of the packages.

Fashion fans have taken to Twitter to show off their new outfits as well as the tea that has fallen out of their parcels when they have opened them up.

And none of them could quite understand why they had been sent the complimentary gifts along with their new outfits.

One customer who was left scratching their head by the tea bags posted a picture of them alongside their ASOS order.

They wrote: “Wtf so I open up my order from ASOS to find they also sent me a selection of tea.”

While another also posted a similar picture and added: “WTF @ASOS just opened my parcel and got some Ahmad tea.”

One shopper took to Twitter and said: “Omg ASOS sent me tea bags with my order dreams do come true.”

Another wrote: “Asos just sent me free tea and my day just got better.”

While one even added: “More excited that asos sent me complementary tea than I am to open my actual delivery.”

It is unclear why ASOS sent the teabags out with the orders, but one shopper decided to ask the online retailer about the gift.

And the firm replied by simply saying: “We sometimes attach little gifts in our parcel to make your day extra special! Hope you love your little tea break.”

However, it is not the first time that ASOS have baffled shoppers.

In May, customers also reported receving half-opened packets of Polos with their orders.

HAVE you ever done a big order from ASOS and sent half of it back?

It’s a real pain have a wodge of cash missing from your bank account while you wait for the refund to be processed.

Now ASOS has upped its game by launching a “try before you by” service.

All shoppers have to do is place an order and then select the Klarna Pay Later option.

Their order is delivered as normal and they can then try everything on at home.

They then send back the items they don’t like and only pay for the ones they want.

There are some catches – the new service is only available to those using the retail giant’s app, which is free to download.

You must pay your bill within 30 days of your ordering being dispatched.

If you don’t, then your credit score could be affected as a negative mark may be left on it.

But if you pay for the order within the 30 days you won’t have to pay a penny extra.

To sign up to the Klarna service you need to have a UK bank account, be over 18 and have a residential home address in the UK.

It will only let shoppers with a reasonably good credit score use the service.

It also does a soft credit search on you to make sure you’re responsible and will pay your bill but it won’t leave a mark, unless you fail to pay before the 30 days are up.

Online retailers must allow up to 14 days for a customer to change their mind and return items – and give them a full refund.


DESIGNER DISCOUNTS Do you have unused ASOS loyalty points? Here’s how to claim them 


Last month, ASOS announced a new same-day delivery service but only for shoppers living in one of London’s 122 postcodes.

In August, it launched a new virtual search tool on its app which lets shoppers find items by uploading a photo.

It means that shoppers can search its app by uploading a screenshot from Instagram, a picture of a friend or a photo taken in a magazine.

ASOS attracts a massive 146 million visitors every month, selling a mix of branded and own-label clothes.

ASOS has baffled shoppers by adding a unicorn-adorned jock strap to their stock list.

Confused customers have taken to social media to question what the store was thinking when they launched the bonkers clothing item.

Unicorns aren’t typically features of jock straps, which is why ASOS has caught customers’ attention
Asos

The popular online retailer is selling the underwear online for £5.

The unusual garment is made from stretch cotton jersey and boasts a very eye-catching print.

Miniature unicorns with pastel coloured manes have been printed all over the jock strap.

And if the mythical creatures weren’t enough to capture your attention, the back of the pants leave everything on show.

The back of the undies is completely cut-out

Unsurprisingly, the bum-exposing undies haven’t proven to be everyone’s cup of tea.

Earlier today, a shopper took to Twitter to ask: “Wtf, ASOS?”

A social media user agreed that it was “bizarre”, while another laughed: “Haha mate”.

It’s not the first time that the label has confused customers with their style choices.

In August, they released this bizarre Nineties-style denim skirt AND jeans combination.

And this bag modelled on the poo emoji didn’t go down very well.

SAVVY Brit shoppers have discovered a clever ASOS hack – and it can save you a LOT of cash.

By switching your location setting from the UK to the U.S., you can bag yourself a £50 saving on Juicy Couture trousers and over a tenner on Converse trainers.

These Juicy Couture tracksuit-style pants are £150 on the UK website – but go down to £104.49 on the U.S. version

Prices for certain brands in America are much lower than they are in Britain, so clever customers can take advantage of discounts on Abercrombie and Fitch, Hollister and Calvin Klein.

There’s the added bonus that the pound remains strong against the dollar, despite it dropping against the Euro post-Brexit.

The current exchange rate is around $1.35 to a pound, so shopping the dollar prices provides significant savings.

If bought via the U.S. homepage, items like Adidas work out gear and Calvin Klein shoes cost much less.

All you have to do is click the GBP flag icon in the top right-hand corner and change the country to the United States.

You can keep the currency in pounds and still enjoy the incredible discounts.

A Hollister zip-thru hoodie costs just £31.63 on the U.S. site, but will set you back £45 on the UK site – £13.37 more expensive.

Calvin Klein Sasha Black Wedge ankle boots are listed as £100 on ASOS UK, however shoppers can save £35.41 if they buy them for £64.59 on the US site.

Customers can also save £13 on Adidas Stan Smith trainers, £13 on Converse sneakers, £7.54 on Adidas leggings and £22.27 on Abercrombie and Fitch jeans.

ASOS offers free shipping and returns, which means customers in the UK don’t have to fork out to get their items shipped from abroad.

But while many shoppers reckon it’s a bargain, be aware that when ordering from outside of the U.S., you may be subject to customs and import duties.
