Shipping & Returns

We ship via the USPS. Orders are normally processed within 1 to 2 business days (Monday through Friday, excluding USA holidays). Overnight shipping is available for domestic orders only! Polar Breeze Bandanas proudly ships worldwide but only to specific countries. Please see the details under the International Shipping section.

Free shipping is available to all US states and territories. Orders that total $20.00 to $49.99 will be sent USPS First Class, with approximately 5 to 7 business days delivery time. Orders that total $50.00 and over will be sent USPS Priority Flat Rate, with a delivery time of 2 to 3 business days. All domestic orders sent with free postage will have a tracking number.  Polar Breeze Bandanas reserves the right to choose the most appropriate type of postage for free postage orders. Postage choices are shown at check out. Overnight shipping is not available for free shipping. 

Your shipping charges will be automatically calculated at checkout. Currently, Polar Breeze Bandanas charges a flat rate based on weight for shipping, which includes postage rates and tracking numbers on domestic orders. As a courtesy to our customers, if the postage exceeds the rate charged, we pay the extra cost. However, if the postage is less than the rate charged, we will offer a refund on postage only if the amount is $3.00 or over. Please remember that rates are set by the USPS, not Polar Breeze Bandanas. We strongly agree that some rates, particularly international rates are excessive, but they are beyond our control and we strive to reduce them whenever possible. However, at this time, the USPS has the best postage rates for orders up to 15 pounds. Orders over 15 pounds will be shipped via UPS Ground or Fedex Ground.

Please note:  As of February 2017, if your order weighs 3 pounds or more, and you need overnight shipping, please call Polar Breeze Bandanas for shipping rates. These orders will not fit in an overnight USPS envelop and will need to be sent either UPS or Fedex. 

HOLIDAY SHIPPING:  If you need your order by Christmas Day, you MUST place your order on or before December 15 for domestic orders and November 15 for overseas orders. We make every effort to send orders out quickly during the holiday season; however, the USPS delivery rates are slowed down during the holiday rush. 

DOMESTIC SHIPPING
Polar Breeze Bandanas ships to all of the US including Alaska and Hawaii, all US territories, as well as to APO/FPO/DPO addresses. (Please make sure that all necessary mailing information is included in any APO/FPO/DPO orders as the USPS will not ship without required mail addressing. Please email for further information or see our FAQ section.)  We ship via USPS which has the best rates for our business. All domestic orders have tracking numbers and can be tracked at usps.com (unless sent via another carrier).
Free shipping on orders $20.00 to $49.99:  These orders will be sent USPS First Class, which takes approximately 5 to 7 business days. Priority Flat Rate (2-3 days) or Priority Express (1 day) is available at our regular charges.
Free shipping on orders $50.00 and over:  These orders will be sent USPS Priority Flat Rate, which has a delivery time of 2 to 3 days. Priority Express (1 day) delivery is available at our regular charge.
The shipping rates and mailing times are shown at the time order is placed. (All orders over 15 pounds will be shipped UPS Ground or Fedex Ground, which has better rates for large orders.) We do have customers that prefer us to use FedEx or UPS. Please be aware that for most orders the rates for both FedEx or UPS is double that of the USPS. However, we will be happy to send your order via FedEx or UPS if you prefer.
For overnight shipping (Priority Express or one-day shipping):  Sometimes USPS does not offer one-day shipping to rural areas. We will double check the delivery times when your order is placed. If one-day shipping is not available in your area, we will call you to verify your preference on shipping. In most cases, we will then send the order via Priority Flat Rate, and it will arrive with 2 to 3 days. Due to changes by the USPS, overnight shipping for orders that weigh 3 pounds or more will have to be sent either UPS or Fedex. Please call for more details. However, these rates are much higher than the USPS Priority (2 to 3 day) delivery. We will work with you to get your order to you quickly and at the best price. Please note that overnight shipping is NOT available for free shipping.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
Polar Breeze proudly ships via USPS, which has the most economical rates for our business. Because of the changes in rates by the U.S. post office, as of December 15, 2016, Polar Breeze Bandanas has adjusted our international mailing policies and will only ship to the following countries:  Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, and United Kingdom. There has also been changes to international shipping rates to these countries. Please remember that we do try to keep our rates as low as possible, but we do have to adjust the cost of postage to meet the US postage rates and regulations.
Tracking is available now to all the countries that are approved for shipping. Automated emails will be sent through usps.com to your email address. Postage rates are based on weight of the order. Shipping rates are shown at the time the order is placed and vary by country. (If you need an estimate on postage before ordering, please email us.) We do apologize to the customers in the countries where we no longer ship our products.
Update on Value Added Tax:  EU customers may be liable to pay Value Added Tax upon receipt of merchandise by the applicable postal authority. Polar Breeze Bandanas is not responsible for the VAT charges. As of August 2016, if you refuse the order because you do not want to pay the VAT, Polar Breeze Bandanas will charge a restocking fee of 20% of the purchase price after the order has been returned to us. We do not refund postage charges also. 
For our Canadian customers, we are not aware at this time of extra fees charged by the postal service of the destination country. However, if you wish to verify if there would be any extra fees for ordering from the USA, please be sure to check with your local customs office or postal authority to determine if there would be costs related to import taxes, duties, or charges. Polar Breeze Bandanas is not responsible for these charges, if any occur.
Please allow up to 30 business days for your order to arrive. It often doesn't take this long to deliver. However, shipping and customs clearance is beyond our control. Delays in customs vary by country and time of year. 
Global Express or one-day shipping international:  Polar Breeze will no longer offer this option unless specifically requested since the prices have nearly doubled. If you wish to place an order and want one-day shipping, please email us before the order is placed. We will research the best rates for your order:  USPS or UPS or FedEx.
