U.S. HOLIDAY SHIPPING HELP: I'm on the Nice List, Will My Package Arrive in Time?

Dec 15th, 2018

We know your big question is "Will my order arrive in time for Christmas?"

Answer: Yes. You ARE on our nice list. Stay on it by reading below.


The good thing is that all shipping options - paid and free - are calculated for you at checkout and given to you directly by our shipping carriers. This way, you know.

know we are shipping right away

When you order before 2:30pm ET on a business day and pay for shipping, WE SHIP IT! It doesn't matter if it's Christmas time or if we have a sales day that is double what is expected.

If you are eligible for and choose free shipping, we use our current order volume to determine whether to wait 1 or 2 days to ship your order. The delivery date quote at checkout accounts for this automatically abd adds 2 days to this the date for you (which means it may actually arrive 1 day earlier than the expected date quoted).

add 1 day of padding ON NON-GUARANTEED SERVIcEs just in case

The not-so-good news this Christmas season is that due to current heavy E-Commerce volume nationwide, less expensive UPS Ground and USPS Priority Mail & First Class options may take 1 additional day to get packages to you. If you are worried, UPS 2nd Day and Next Day Air are considered guaranteed options.

I hope that helps. For more shipping information, visit Customer Service > Shipping.

Merry Christmas and thanks for your business.
