Notes:
Orders received after 12:00 pm EST in the distribution system, will begin processing the following business day.
Delivery times for oversized and pre-order items can be longer per the product detail page.

Items that are not available to be shipped within 1-2 business days may not arrive by December 24 due to a combination of factors including item availability, processing time in our warehouse and shipping time. To calculate your delivery estimate, simply take the time called out in the "Shipping" section on the product detail page ("Usually leaves warehouse in..." or what we refer to as "Processing Time") and add the time it takes a package to travel from our facilities to your destination address, based on the shipping method you've selected. Please note that orders for multiple items or multiple copies of a single item may take longer to assemble before we're able to ship them to you.
*Items with availability greater than 1-2 days may not arrive by December 24.
