Free Economy shipping applies only to the contiguous United States.
Our Economy shipping methods may include United States Postal Service First Class mail or Priority mail, UPS Ground, or UPS SurePost. Typical delivery times for Economy Shipping are 4 to 9 business days.

Light or small items are usually shipped United States Postal Service First Class mail or Priority mail, and heavier items are usually shipped by UPS Ground.
The following are exceptions to our free and flat flat-rate domestic ground shipping charges:
- We reserve the right to decline to ship any order for our economy or standard flat-rate shipping charge if the package is unusually large or heavy. If we decline to ship an order for our economy or standard shipping charge, we will contact you before we proceed with your order.

Generally orders shipped to APO boxes and United States territories ship for our standard domestic shipping rates. However, if an item it too large or heavy or requires shipment in multiple packages, additional charges may apply. If additional charges do apply, before we ship your order we will email you with the additional shipping charges and request your approval of those charges.
