Santas.com uses both UPS as well as the US Postal Service (USPS) for all shipping. *Use the UPS map below to estimate standard ground shipping times. USPS ground shipping will take anywhere from 2-9 business days to reach the destination. Our free standard ground shipping on order over $100 may be shipped using either service.
Although UPS makes every effort to deliver holiday ground shipments with the same transit times as the rest of the year, they don't guarantee UPS Ground shipments during the two weeks before Christmas due to unusually high volume. A good rule of thumb is to allow seven business days for ground shipments during those last two weeks, particularly long-distance; your shipment may arrive sooner, of course. Santas.com is not responsible for delays of any kind related to UPS or USPS shipping.
Orders are processed within 24-48 hours, not including weekends or holidays. UPS does not pick up or deliver on Saturday or Sunday. The legend on the map indicates actual business shipping days, and does not factor in weekends.
December - Orders placed before 3 PM EST will ship the same day(M-F).
*Any location in ORANGE is a minimum 1 week delivery. (From the time UPS picks up, not the day an order is placed.) For example - an order placed over the weekend will be picked up by UPS on Monday, then 5 transit days, arriving the following Monday.
**UPS is extremely reliable, however there is a lot of winter between Washington (Santas.com) and Florida or Maine. We are not liable for shipping delays due to factors beyond control..... ...try to factor in several extra days...just to be safe.
2016 UPS Peak-Season Service Guarantee: The UPS guarantee is suspended for UPS Ground packages picked up or scheduled for delivery between Dec. 11 and Dec. 24. For further details, visit ups.com for UPS Tariff/Terms and Conditions of Service.
