FREE GROUND FLAT RATE SHIPPING SPECIAL
We offer Free Fedex Ground Shipping if you spend more than $99 or more on merchandise. Sorry, but this offer is not valid orders with bulk discounts, on orders shipped to Canada and gift cards don’t count towards the $99 total.
ONCE I PLACE MY ORDER, WHEN WILL IT BE SHIPPED?
Orders that don’t have any products that receive quantity discounts usually ship within 2 business days.
Orders where you received a quantity discount can take up to 2-3 weeks ship. If you need your order sooner or for a specific date call or email before you order and we can let you know if we can get it to you by when you need it.
Occasionally there is a discrepancy between what we think we have in stock and we actually have in stock, in such case we will email you with what is out of stock and give you options. Your order won’t be shipped until we hear back from you as we don’t ship orders that are not complete or in multiple shipments.
WHAT ARE MY SHIPPING OPTIONS AND HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
FOR ORDERS THAT DON'T HAVE ANY ITEMS THAT RECEIVE A QUANTITY DISCOUNT?
Cost and options for shipping are based on the weight of your order and your zip code. The shipping options and the rate for each are available on both the shopping cart page and in the checkout process. We offer the following shipping options, but they all may not be available based on the weight of your order and were it’s being shipped to:
Transit times are based on the shipping method chosen. The following shows how long it will take your merchandise to reach you once we have shipped your order, not from when you place your order.
- USPS First Class Mail (only available for orders weighing 13 or less ounces) and can take between 1 day to 4 weeks to get to you.
- Fedex Ground can take 1-6 business days based on where you live in the country, but it is not guaranteed to be delivered by s specific date (we ship from Southern California). See map below for how many days it should take to get to you once its shipped.
- Fedex Next Day Air-Arrives 1 business day after it’s shipped.
- Fedex 2nd Day Air - Arrives 2 business days after it’s shipped.
- Fedex 3 Day Air - Arrives 3 business days after it’s shipped.
- USPS International Priority – This is the only option for orders being shipped to Canada. The U.S. Post office says it takes 6-10 business days to get to you once it’s shipped.
FEDEX DOES NOT SHIP TO P.O. BOXES, BUT IF THERE IS A STREET ADDRESS IN THE ADDRESS AND A P.O. BOX, YOU ARE FINE.
Orders shipped via Fedex can be tracked and have detailed delivery information. These services are not available for orders shipped via USPS. If you choose USPS as your carrier and USPS says the package was delivered all claims must be made and taken up with USPS and Sorority Specialties is not liable for any loss, damage, delay, incorrect delivery, fraud or theft. If USPS says they have delivered an order but you have not received it, Sorority Specialties will not be able to resend or refund your order. We recommend you use Fedex.

FOR ORDERS THAT HAVE A ITEM THAT RECEIVES A BULK DISCOUNT:
For orders that receive a bulk discount many times we have to make in the merchandise to fulfill the order, so orders that receive bulk discounts can take up to 3 weeks to ship. If you need it sooner or for a specific date please contact us before you order and we can advise if we can get your order to you by when you need it.
Many times orders that receive bulk discount have multiple products in the order and are shipped from multiple locations. We have no way to know how and were each order maybe shipped when the order is placed, so we don’t have a way to accurately calculate the shipping costs like we do for orders that don’t have items that receive quantity discount. So for this reason we charge shipping as a percentage of the order and only offer standard ground shipping as an option for orders that have any products that receive a bulk discount. Orders that have items with bulk discounts are shipped via Fedex or UPS ground.
Fedex and UPS does not ship to P.O. Boxes, but if there is a street address in the address and a P.O. Box you are fine.
