FunMart‘s redemption centre is located at 38 Pitt Street in the Yau Ma Tei area. To get there from the MTR, simply take exit A1 and walk a couple minutes against the direction of the MTR exit. After crossing the intersection, you will find the commercial building located on your left.
After heading up to the 23rd floor, you will find that the office space is quite claustrophobic. Quickly head left from the elevators and you will find yourself at unit 2304: Funmart Headquarters.
Inside the redemption centre there was 1 staff, 2 other customers, and tons of products from their website showcased on shelves with price tags for immediate purchase. Even though there was 1 staff redemption was quick and painless. The staff also gave me a loyalty rewards card, where you can earn $50 for every $1,000 you spend with them. Not a great rewards program by any means, but certainly better than nothing.
As for the product itself I was a little disappointed with the packaging. It was quite underwhelming for a product which claims to have an original price tag of $298. However upon opening the product and testing it out, my opinion has changed. It is actually quite a well-made piece of equipment. The thermometer is easy to use and has a full set of English and Spanish instructions. What impressed me the most was that it comes with a lithium battery that guarantees at least 5,000 measurements from the get go.
The thermometer allows you to take your baby’s temperature in mere seconds, and appears to be accurate upon repeat measurements. The measuring piece (the part that goes into the ear) seems to be relatively safe; in the case of sudden jolts or movement I still don’t think my baby would be hurt. The thermometer is actually branded and sold by GracoBaby, a baby products company based in USA. The thermometer itself is manufactured in China.
Overall I would rate this group buying experience a 3.5 out of 5 stars. FunMart is a dainty but effective group buying company. They are one of the few daily deal sites that offer lots of baby products so kudos to them for that. The redemption process was smooth and easy, unlike my experiences with “bigger” group buying sites such as GroupBuyer. Given the right item and price, I would probably buy from FunMart again and put that loyalty card to good use!
