FREE SHIPPING POLICIES
- All Domestic orders over $50 will receive FREE UPS Standard Ground Shipping (unless sending to a PO Box, Military address, Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, which will be shipped by USPS).
- All International orders over $250 of regular priced items will receive FREE USPS Priority Shipping.
- All International orders over $250 that do not meet the FREE shipping requirements, will receive ½ off any Shipping method. (This includes orders that have over $250 of only sale items or a mix of regular priced and sale items, but not $250 worth of regular items to qualify for free shipping)
HOW WE CALCULATE SHIPPING COSTS
Domestic and international packages will be charged based on their individual weight. Your shipping cost will be calculated based on the items in your shopping cart when you proceed to the final checkout step and choose your preferred shipping method.
All domestic orders that do not qualify for free shipping will be charged a flat fee of $8 for shipping via UPS or USPS. RUSH orders will be subject to additional charges based upon weight and distance.
International orders will be capped at $65, no matter what the actual cost.
HOW WE SHIP OUR ORDERS
All domestic web orders will normally be shipped via UPS Ground (unless it is shipping to a P.O. Box, Military address, Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, which will be shipped by USPS). You will have the option to add a secure in-person signature to your delivery at checkout. If you are shipping to a P.O. Box, you must choose USPS as your carrier or your package may be undeliverable and returned to us. UPS will not deliver to a P.O. Box.
Orders ship as follows:
RUSH ORDERS generally ship within 1-2 business days from the time of order and receive priority in processing, notification and shipping. Please note that Rush service is only available for orders within the United States. You will have the option of choosing which Rush service you would like upon checkout: UPS Blue 2 day or UPS Overnight Saver.
NORMAL ORDERS generally ship within 1-3 business days from the time of order and are sent via UPS Ground service for USA street addresses or USPS for USA orders to P.O. Boxes, Military addresses, Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico.
Please note that, during peak seasons, we may experience some delays, which may affect overall processing and delivery times. To check the current status of your order, as well as tracking information, please visit the TRACK YOUR ORDER page.
If your package is already in transit, you will not be allowed to change the address, but can (for a fee, based and charged by the carrier) submit an address change through Customer Service.
If you live in an apartment building and no one is home to receive the package, UPS may, regardless of a 'No Signature Requirement,' find it safer to leave a notice on your door (with 3 delivery attempts) or leave it with a Building Manager (if available). Please note that this is a policy of UPS and followed at their discretion.
If you cancel your order once shipped, or if refused, you will be refunded for the cost of merchandise only and will incur any fees charged to us by the carrier to return the package to us (ex: UPS charges us a flat fee of $10 for all re-routing). If you wish for the package to be re-sent, you will be charged again for shipping costs, even if you received free shipping on the 1st attempt.
A NOTE ABOUT RUSH ORDERS
Please be aware that, though you may want or need something to ship the same day you order it, this may not be possible. We need time to process your order and prepare it to ship. We will do our best to process same-day requests we receive via phone before 12pm PST but cannot guarantee same-day shipping will be available in all cases.
