Shipping Information

WHEN DO WE SHIP? DAILY EXCEPT SUNDAY

Short Answer, As Soon as Possible. Our Normal cut-off time is 4:30 pm Eastern Time for All Shipping Methods and 1:00 pm on Saturday for US Postal Service. We try to keep a counter on various pages like the one below:
 
 
What is Free Economy Shipping?
 
Since there is no actual Free Economy Shipping method and we try to maintain same day shipping if ordered by the cut-off time, it's mostly in packaging. For example: if you get various sizes of Beach Balls, they will most likely be packaged in the same sealed poly bag. Normally, we would identify the contents but it's pretty easy to figure out. Otherwise, most orders go out in the most cost effective method. If under 16oz, it's First Class USPS. Over a pound varies. If you have a drop dead need date that's a day or two away, this would not be the best method to choose. However, most orders arrive within 2-4 business days.
 
Now, there's a bunch of wording below on this in detail. If after normal hours, there still might be options to get it out to best adivce is to call us at 302-628-8888.

  • Official Cut Off Time is 4:30 PM ET Monday - Friday.
    There should be a Countdown on Product Viiew & Cart Page.
  • USPS Postal Saturday Picks up at 1:15pm
  • FedEx Ground Deadline may be extended when need to 5:00 pm Monday - Friday
  • What if it's after the deadline and it's critical?
    Best to Call 302-628-8888. We might have options still.
If possible, we might adjust shipping method if that benefits the speed of delivery. For example, if you FedEx Express Saver and we're shipping to New York City, changing it to FedEx Ground would speed delivery by two days. This only applies if this makes sense and speeds up delivery by at least a day.
