Guidelines / Fun Facts

  • Try to accumulate your orders so they t​otal $49 so there is no shipping cost.
  • Select "FREE Two-Day Shipping" as your shipping speed on the shipping options page. If the option doesn't appear on your order form, the order may not contain eligible items. More details about this shipping offer are available on Amazon's Help pages.
  • Please note that shipping rates, restrictions and methods vary from seller to seller and aren't generally set by Amazon. For instance, while some sellers will ship to international destinations, others don't. To see a seller's shipping rates and details, click "View shipping rates and policies" from the product listing.
  • If you can't find the information you're looking for on the Amazon Seller's storefront, you may contact the seller or Amazon directly to ask questions. You'll find customer service contact information on each Seller's storefront. Just click "Ask a question" on the top right-hand side of your screen.
    • Amazon can support large volume (bulk) orders, and may even offer an additional volume discount. Please contact Purchasing who will provide you with an Amazon sales rep's contact information.
  • ​Orders over a certain dollar spending threshold will automatically be routed to the necessary approving parties.​
