Lifetime warranty? Only if you pay- return policy
I have 5 items that have split over time and need replacement. I emailed the company and this is my reply.
You will be charged $3.95 processing for each item you send back to us
You will only be charged $9.95 if you have proof of purchase to cover the cost of postage to send a replacement back to you.
If you don’t have proof of purchase you will receive an Evoucher to the value of the item/part Claimed only.
Unfortunately we don’t except walk ins everything will need to be send back to us.
Add on the postage cost to send it to them and you pay so much you are essentially buying the replacement item.

No-longer a great product with 'lifetime" warranty...
I have been a loyal Tupperware purchaser for 25+ years. I would have held more than a dozen parties and spent 1000's on the 'Fantastic Plastic'.
The recent changes to the Warranty claim system is appalling! Having a loyal customer pay $3.95 for an item to be returned for replacement, then pay $$ for postage to return the broken item to Tupperware, then pay $10 for postage to have the new items sent to me is disgusting.
Then we have the new 'loyalty program' of Bronze, Silver & Gold membership!
What a joke!
I think I'm done with Tupperware.

What warranty??? Lifetime LOL
A so-called lifetime warranty is just hard work and cost you more money. Everytime you receive your replacements it’s different.

Claim service is apalling
It took ne a while but I did get over spending a fortune on a bunch of plastic that is no better than anything you can get in a $2 shop... My rock n serve lids are warped for the 2nd time so I put in a claim about last September - haven't heard anything since. Not only are all my containers now miss matched colours but I think I will have to go through this continually in the years to come. I got an email today apologising for the delay in warranty replacement - they took my $13 (I think) dollars for shipping 6 months ago by the way. They s...ent me a $20 voucher as an apology. On the surface this is awesome Tupperware...but... the link on the gift card does not work. When I went to the Tupperware store to find something cheap to buy with the voucher the cheapest thing I could find that I might use was a small pitcher - $31. I really wanted and needed a pair of kitchen scissors but they were $49 ! Seriously !! So by the time I entered by voucher number and shipping was added, the measly pitcher was going to cost me $23. I can get one at the $2 shop for $2. I seriously think I will throw away the voucher. Tupperware you should have offered your customers a gift - pick from one of these 5 useful things with postage included - that's how to say sorry. Not wheedle even more money out of your already cranky customers.
Poor service through communication and warranty claim
Purchased rice cooker. Lid melted in microwave in which could have caused more damage to a house as smoke cane out of the microwave. Made a claim through Tupperware first to be rejected as they don’t cover melted items. Than reviewed and claimed approved but I had to pay delivery fee. Lid cane without insert and I have emailed Tupperware and no response. Never would this product.

Tupperware Australia have gone to ground. Customer service non-existent. No replacement items received.
Made a warranty claim (#683036) and paid $12.95 for postage. Claim approved and received automated email confirming this with customer service phone number for Aus/NZ. I needed to amend the warranty claim to add an additional item, so I called the number but it states that it is no longer operational. I sent an email to ask for the claim to be amended and have still not received a response. This is not good enough.

No customer service!
I put in a claim for a cracked heat 'n' eat container on 5th Aug. The not online said due to Covid there are delays for 14 days. Ok cool. The money for shipping was taken from my bank. $12.95. Rip off as i have had larger parcels sent by post foe $10. Anyway Sept comes and no update on the Warranty claims page. October comes and still nothing. On the website there is a 1800 number for customer service. You call and the recording says this service is no longer available!!! So 14th Oct I email to ask what's happening. Automated response email s...ays they'll contact you in 48 hours. It's now the 21st Oct and still no contact from Tupperware. Also I noticed products from the last 10 years crack and warp easily. Meanwhile my older relatives still have their same items from the 70s and 80s and they are still air tight and strong. Not going to bother buying Tupperware again or take up with warranty claims ever again.

Broken Tupperware No response from Tupperware
On June 15th I returned a broken product with a lifetime guarantee, I had to pay postage to return it. I am still waiting for a reply. I have a tracking number through the post office to prove it has been returned. Tupperware don't answer their phone, don't respond to numerous emails and in the meantime I am in limbo. Tupperware isn't what it used to be, admittedly in Melbourne we have Stage 4 Lockdown at the moment, but I find it amusing that Tupperware can still take orders for new products and post them out to customers, but can't find the time to respond and fix problems from their customers that have supported them for over 40 years. I will certainly be reassessing whether I ever purchase products in the future. Extremely disappointed.
Purchased in March 2018 at Tupperware for $60.00.
Not what it used to be
Tupperware is not what it used to be. Everything is cracking and breaking yet the prices remain the same and the customer service stinks - I've waited 12 weeks to get my replacement.

Replacements under warranty
I bought a MicroCook pitcher with lid at a party approximately 2 years ago. The jug cracked around the handle a couple of months ago so I requested a replacement under warranty. I (finally) received the replacement yesterday, but only the jug not the lid. The problem is that they have sent a different coloured jug. Apparently the jug colour has now been changed to "Peacock blue". I called the contact number at Tupperware to ask for a matching lid, waited on hold for 15 minutes and then spoke to a very rude person who told me that they are ...not required to provide a lid because, even though the jug and lid are now mismatched, the jug is "functional". She said it was just like when you get repairs done to your car, they don't replace the whole car - not sure how it's the same thing, except if you got a replacement panel on your car which was a different colour. I've now got an expensive mismatched jug and lid. I won't be buying Tupperware again, their products are too expensive, quality isn't as good as it used to be and they don't provide the "fine print" on their warranties. Should have bought from IKEA instead!
