Help And Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why doesn’t Band Shoppe offer coupon codes or school discounts?

Band Shoppe is proud to offer every day low prices without relying on high/low pricing (a marketing tactic where a store initially charges a higher price for a product and then later discounts that price). If we do happen to offer a site-wide discount, this code would come directly from the Band Shoppe Newsletter or a Band Shoppe Sales Team member and never from a 3rd party site. However, we do offer an occasional Custom Guard Sale, Holiday Gift Packages, and great savings in our Clearance Section.

You may have noticed that our checkout has a “Vouchers & gift cards” box. This area is used to redeem Gift Cards and the one-time-use voucher codes we may occasionally give to customers when something goes wrong.

Most items are shipped by FedEX or USPS. Some larger items ship by truck carrier.

How do I change quantities or cancel my order?

Unfortunately, once your payment has been submitted, you cannot modify or cancel your order. If you have any questions, contact our Customer Care Team at (800)457-3501 or by email at [email protected].

How long will it take for my package to arrive?

Packages typically arrive in 2-5 business days, depending on your location. Custom items are produced on a manufacturing schedule (PDF). If you need your order by a specific date, please consider upgrading your shipping to ensure timely arrival. We cannot guarantee the exact arrival date of orders shipped using Standard Service.

To view the status of your order or download a copy of your invoice, log in and then go to My Account > Order Status.

Do you ship internationally?

Band Shoppe is happy to ship orders worldwide. All orders are shipped via FedEx or Priority Mail International. To provide the most cost-effective shipping method, you must contact our Sales Team via email at [email protected] to complete your order. Any published shipping charges do not apply to orders shipped beyond the continental United States.

Duties/Taxes/Brokerage Clearance Charges
In all cases, the recipient is responsible for all duties and taxes levied by the local governing authority along with any costs associated with clearing the shipment with their respective customs authorities. We are not able to estimate these charges. If you need to estimate your local costs, we suggest you contact the appropriate authorities with your order information.

Shipping Timeline
International orders may take additional time to process due to the completion of additional documents required for shipping and item availability, as all items must come into our main warehouse before orders can be shipped. In practice, we ship all international orders once they are complete to minimize the shipping expense to our customers. If you require certain items to be shipped as soon as possible, please notify us in writing, and we will quote the shipping costs based on your requirements.
