Replacement straws for Thermos Bottles

Replacement straws for Thermos Bottles

posted in Kids |

Sorry this has nothing to do with coding.

But if you have kids and have the Thermos aluminum straw Bottles such as the Thermos Funtainer or Foogo Straw bottles, you can get replacement straws directly from Thermos for $1 a piece. My kids like to bite the straws and they get destroyed pretty quickly. If you need just the top part of the straw, that would be $0.50.

Apparently, people are reselling these straws on Ebay and other sites for $7-$10 a piece! So Thermos is limiting each order to 5 straws. I am putting this out there to hopefully direct people to the source.

Call Thermos directly at 1-800-831-9242 to order your replacement straws. If outside the US, try 1-847-439-7821.

    Hi. Thank you for posting. It’s very helpful to know because we are debating whether buying new bottle or the straws from EBay or Amazon as a last resort.

    Just wanted to say thanks for this tip. We have 2 of the Funtainers because the straw on the first one was chewed. When searching online I was surprised to replacements being sold for $10! This info saved me time and money. Two thumbs up!

    Thank you so much! You just saved me so much money. I just paid $7 for 4 straws and shipping. The straws for both ours were looking pretty gross wasn’t sure if it was juice stained or dirty. Glad I did a google search and found your blog!

    Thank you so much for this tip! I was shocked when I saw $10 per straw on amazon!

    Hi. I am from the Philippines and I was looking for a replacement straw that I could buy online so my friend in the US can bring it here. I was surprised to see that the price of a replacement straw was even more expensive than the bottle itself that I thought I would just buy a new bottle. Your post was really helpful. If you don’t mind, can I also order via email since I am not from US?

    Hi Cres mayor: Glad this helps. I am not sure if there’s an email address to order. You may want to give them a call. I would guess that calling them is the only way to order. Chinh

    Hi Chinh, I tried calling the number posted above but the same was incorrect. Would you know if there is any new number?

  15. 15 On March 20th, 2013, kd said:

    I ordered 5 today, and the total price was only $8 (including $3 shipping)! When you call, you will need a model # I don’t have it so I went online and got one that was similar.
    Thank you!

    I just ordered today for 4 was $7 (with shipping) !! Great tips! Thanks a lot!!

    The number still works I just called it and was able to order. Thanks!

  18. 18 On June 10th, 2013, Paula said:

    Just an FYI. I just tried to call and they are completely out of stock and not expecting any for 3 weeks. They don’t take backorders so you have to call back. Bummer.

    THANK you!!!! Just called the number and order all the replacements for less than 1 on ebay

    Chris: That’s great. Never would have thought my most popular blog post would be about kid sippy cups. :-)

    Thanks for the info. And thanks for saving me some money.

    Thanks for the info! I called the number today, but unfortunately, they are out of the straw parts as of 8/15/13. The representative said that they’ll have it back in stock in about 4 weeks. I’ll give them a call next month. Also, be sure to have the product model number available (I had to look mine up on Amazon.com). Thanks again!
