Valentines Day Shipping Advice
  Tuesday, February 9, 2016

Sunday, Feb. 14, is Valentines Day. We recommend choosing Priority Mail when you check out to ensure that you receive your order by Saturday, Feb. 13, but remember that Priority Mail delivery times are not guaranteed. If you must be absolutely sure of getting your package before the holiday, choose one of the premium air services (Priority Express, UPS 2nd Day, UPS Next Day).

These methods probably or definitely will arrive by Saturday:

  • Priority Mail: 2-3 business days, not guaranteed
  • Priority Express: 1-2 business days, guaranteed
  • UPS 2nd Day Air: 2 business days, guaranteed
  • UPS Next-Day Air: Next business day, guaranteed.

These methods might or might not arrive by Feb. 13:

  • UPS Ground (within the Northeastern US): 1-5 business days, no Saturday delivery. This ground service is usually next-day delivery within New England, 2-3 days to the eastern part of the US. The farther away you are from New England, the longer it takes.
  • First Class Package: 2-5 business days

These methods probably or definitely will NOT arrive by Feb. 13:

  • UPS Ground (outside of the Northeastern US): 1-5 business days, no Saturday delivery. Typically 3-5 days to the Midwestern US and points west, longer to Alaska and Hawaii.

Remember to allow one extra day for order packaging and preparation!
