Product total of $200.00 or more: Receive free shipping up to $20.00 plus a 10% discount on eligible items (see NON DISCOUNTED ITEMS below). If shipping exceeds $20, you will receive $20 off your shipping price.
Order over $200 Example #1: A $225.00 order on discounted items would receive a 10% discount. $225.00 x 10%= $22.50. Therefore, the cost after the discount would be $202.50. Some items cannot be discounted, (see non discounted items), however may be used to get to that discount level that would apply to the rest of the order.
Order over $200 Example #2: A $225.00 order contains $150.00 worth of discountable merchandise and $75.00 worth of non-discountable items (say 75.00 in cake cardboard). A 10% discount on $150.00 will be given, making the discount amount = $15.00, because the total of the order is over $200.00.

OUT OF STOCK ITEMS
We want to be sure that our customers are informed of all changes to their order before it is shipped. We carry over 14,000 items and strive to get all orders out as quickly as possible. However, if we are "out of stock" on any particular item(s), at the time of ordering, we may have the items within 1-2 business days to complete your order. If the items are not available or the order is going to be delayed any further, we will make every attempt to contact you by telephone or email. Please allow time for us to completely fill your order, so that we can do our best to get your order right. We will also try to inform our customers if there are any substitutions for the out of stock item(s).
There will be times when we have tried to obtain an out of stock item and we are simply unable to do so due to supplier difficulties.
We do not automatically back order out of stock items. The out of stock item(s) can either, be reordered at a later date, placed on a separate order, or we can contact you once the items are available. Shipping charges would apply. Orders will be shipped after we have discussed out of stock options with our guests.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE AN ORDER
Please check orders immediately and report any errors within two business working days. If you receive a package with damaged items, please keep the original packaging as well as the box.
1. All returns must be pre-authorized by the customer service department between the hours of 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday- Friday
2. If a return has been pre-authorized, it must be returned within 2 weeks of when the order was originally received. All original packaging must accompany the item(s) being returned.
3. There will be NO refund on original shipping charges as well as return shipping charges, (unless we have made an error or incorrect items were sent).
4. Food products may NOT be returned. Chocolate or coating that is sent in warm weather may melt in shipping. If it has melted into a chunk, simply re-melt and use. Order chocolate, food products, and heat sensitive items in warm months at your own risk. Please see below, “Warm Weather Advisory”
5. There may be a 20% restock charge on items returned
Contact us as soon as you detect the damage so we can take the steps to correct and resolve the issue as quickly as possible. You must keep the original shipping cartons (with shipping labels intact) and the packing materials for any claim to be honored. UPS may require an inspection of the package and contents to complete the claim. We can refund, credit, or replace the items once the claim is completed and approved.
WARM WEATHER ADVISORY
Some items may not ship well during warm weather and are indicated by a “Warm Weather Advisory”. Items with this advisory are shipped at the customer's known risk. Cold packs are available for an additional cost of $4.50 to help avoid receiving items damaged from heat. Please be advised that ice packs only have a significant benefit in the first 24-36 hours and only when shipping in moderate temperatures. There is a place to request a cold pack on the order form. We can also request that our shipper obtain a signature when the package is delivered. This would help ensure that the package is not left outside in the heat. During the warmer season, we suggest to ship at-risk-items on Mondays to avoid orders being left in a hot truck over the weekend. For transit times that are more than 3 days, we would recommend upgrading to 2nd day service. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause due to any uncontrollable weather issues.
Please feel free to contact us and let us know if there is anything else we can do for you.
