    Does anybody out there have a good travel mug they have bought recently?

    Lately I'm finding ones that are too small, leak, or just don't keep my coffee hot for very long!

    I bought one a few years ago from Starbucks and it's wonderful. It's big, doesn't leak and keeps my coffee hot for hours. It's getting pretty beat up...but I still use it! The only problem is when my husband forgets his at work I'll let him use mine. So I'd rather have 2! And of course they don't sell it anymore.

    We bought 2 different ones from coffee bean a few months ago and they're horrible. They have all the cons I listed plus there's a little button as a stopper and it's always getting stuck!

    Oh, nice! I love that you can microwave it, that's a major plus. But it doesn't have a way to 'close' and I worry it might spill...somehow...somewhere. They do sell it at a store by me so maybe I'll buy it and try it out!

    Thanks for the recommendation! :)

    I have one of these. I LOVE it. Mine has a black and red vine pattern on it. I've seen tie dyed ones too.

    My best travel mugs are also from Starbucks...dh bought 2 red ones for Valentines Day a few years ago and I often leave mine at school...but since you and I both love our Starbucks mugs, I'd suggest going and checking out what they have...they usually feature a sale shelf...don't miss those bargains!:love:

    czacza: I've been looking at Starbucks but I haven't seen anything worth buying...and definitely only on sale some of those things are so pricey!

    I really like the look of those costco/qvc mugs! The purple one is right up my alley! I'll have to check those out next time I make a costco run. :)

    Those cups from bed bath & beyond look cool, but I don't think they're for traveling are they...?

    Thanks for the suggestions! I love it...that's why I ask! :)

    Amazon has a 2 pack of the contigo mugs for 33.99

    Contigo 2 Pack Vacuum Autoseal Travel Mugs by Contigo $33.99

    I paid around that but then I had a $5 coupon. We have used them all year and they are still great

    Yep, they're designed for travel. They have lids that close and seal.

    Starbucks mugs for me! They are pricey but good quality. Of course, my coffee is all gone by the time I leave the house so I have no need for a travel mug!

    I love the Tervis Tumblers-they also sell them at other department stores. We have some cute beach ones and the lids do make a good seal and keep hot things hot and cold things cold. Tervis also give a lifetime warranty on all their products. But have never had any problems with this product.

    I got this one at Kohl's. It's like the Copco but has a flap that closes.

    I love the mugs from Starbucks -- I have a slim green one and it keeps my beverage hot for almost three hours. I love it!
