Really like reading detailed shipping information? Here goes...
Shipping and handling costs for orders under $50.00 is a flat $6.99
for shipments to the United States.
Are you thinking, why $6.99 for shipping for a $2.50 wristband?
Here's why. The $6.99 includes having a human available to locate and pick your item(s) in the warehouse and get them to the shipping station, then verify accuracy, then select packaging material, then package your shipment, weigh it, then calculate and apply First Class postage which at a minimum is $4.10 to $5.10 based on your zip code, and then assure it is picked up the same day for you, Monday - Friday. On some items the postage alone is $10 and we lose money on shipping, but overall at $6.99 we generally hope to break even on shipping and handling costs.
If you choose to upgrade your shipping to a UPS service, you will be billed actual UPS shipping costs for that service plus a small charge for our fulfilment expense.

Do you want to buy what we don't have?
Do you get a note in a yellow box on your computer screen telling you we don't have any of what you want when you try to buy it? Sorry about that.
Generally if you don't see a note next to an "Availability" field giving an idea on status, we try to get things back into stock within a couple of weeks.
The good news is that if you can put it into your cart, we have it in stock. We don't take back orders like some stores, and then scramble to find the inventory.
