APO/FPO, P.O. Boxes, & U.S. Territories
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee holiday delivery to APO/FPO and U.S. Territory addresses as USPS Priority Mail delivery times to these locations can take 2 to 3 weeks. Orders placed in December may arrive before December 24th (12/24), but the United States Postal Service and Military Mail delivery times vary greatly based on distance, volume, and military activity around the globe. If possible we recommend shipping Federal Express to an alternate address in the United States. We apologize for this inconvenience.
