Shipping Information

Shipping Discounts

With some exceptions (see below), when merchandise totals $45.00 or more, we offer a discount applied against your shipping cost on any available shipping method. For many orders shipping to the continental US, this will provide free, or nearly free, shipping. For bulky and/or very heavy orders, as well as orders shipping to Alaska or Hawaii, the shipping will be nicely discounted. Where applicable, currently only on Fedex express, ground, and home delivery services, surcharges for rural and/or residential delivery will be added after the discount is applied.

Free/discounted shipping is available on packages delivered within the USA for retail customers who place an order through the website. Free shipping is not available for orders placed by phone or by mail.

Free or discounted shipping is not available to wholesale customers, however, we do everything we can to keep your shipping costs low. Charges reflect the actual shipping cost, not a percentage of the sale. We also avoid shipping multiple boxes whenever possible.

Exceptions

Any portion of any order paid for by My Rewards points, or any discount coupon offer, will not be included in the shipping total used to calculate the discount. If you are a registered customer and you have points available to redeem, please be sure your order total exceeds $45.00 plus the points available to redeem, if you want the best deal on shipping.

Returns for credit or exchange

We do not pay shipping on returns for credit or exchange. If a return for credit causes the original order total to drop below $45.00, the original shipping discount will be removed from the order before the credit is issued. This will reduce the amount credited for the return.

Damaged or Defective Shipments

When the wrong item was shipped, or the item was damaged or defective on arrival, we will either provide a prepaid return shipping label, or request photographic proof that the merchandise has been made unusable, at our choice, before issuing credit or shipping a replacement. If a credit causes the original order total to drop below $45.00, the original shipping discount will be removed from the order before the credit is issued. This will reduce the amount credited for the return.

Incorrect or Old Addresses

If we receive an old or incorrect address, (always check your shipping address if you use PayPal!), we can usually correct it if we are notified by email within 24 hours of receiving the order. Once an order has shipped, the address can sometimes be corrected, but it is expensive. The carriers are currently charging $14.00 or more for this service. You will have to pay the current fee before we authorize the correction. If the shipment is returned to us, you will have the options of either paying the cost of shipping the package again, or having us treat the package as a return, with a partial refund. A restocking fee and the actual original shipping charges will be deducted from the original sale.
