Shipping on five yarns or less is âas statedâ at the time of check-out. But because the US Postal system charges by weight, and the cost goes up in very small increments after the first pound, the shipping calculator gets out of control on large orders. So for orders of 6+ yarns, Lifeâs an Expedition issues a shipping rebate after payment. The larger the order, the larger the rebate. Please note that this discount applies to Zibbet orders only.
HOW BIG IS THE REBATE? No order between 6 and 16 yarns will require more than $12 for shipping within the United States.* Orders of 17-24 yarns still offer a whopping rebate, but shipping might exceed $12. These rates apply to orders placed and shipped within the United States.
HOW DO I GET THIS REBATE? WHAT DO I DO? Pick out six or more yarns and pay for them. You do not need to ask for the rebate. We issue it whether you ask or not. Rebates are issued after you pay, when we pack the order, which is usually within 48 hours. You will see a credit in your Paypal account. You will be notified by email--probably 2 or 3 times--when we ship/rebate. If you donât see any of these emails, look in your email spam folder. That's where they often end up.
On large orders of 20+ yarns, we are willing to invoice you BEFORE you pay if you prefer; simply go through check-out and complete all information, but stop before paying; this involves a few extra steps for us, so please allow at least 48 hours to get a total from us.
If you need any reassurance that Lifeâs an Expedition does, indeed, follow through on our rebate program, please see our outstanding feedback on eBay, where we have been selling yarn and other merchandise since 2003. http://myworld.ebay.com/lifes_an_expedition
