Shipping & Returns Info
Due to the continued challenges of COVID-19 all small package carriers (FedEx, USPS and UPS) continue to experience sporadic shipping delays nationwide. At this time, none of the carriers are guaranteeing delivery days/times. If you must have a package by a specific day, it is recommended that you ship via FedEx Express services. While these services have proven to be the most effective way to get the shipment to you by the preferred day, FedEx still does not guarantee these shipments.
All Denver Area orders from the site will be delivered 3-4 days from date of order unless you call us so we can create something for you for quicker delivery. If you ever want to order a gift with a ship date in the future, please call or email us your order. Thank you.
Shipping occurs Monday through Friday only. No shipping occurs on Saturday or Sunday. Orders placed on Saturday and Sunday will be processed on Monday. All orders placed with 3 Day, 2 Day or Next day air shipping on Saturday and Sunday or by 11:00 AM MST on Monday ship on Monday. Orders placed with 3 Day, 2 Day or Next day air shipping Monday through Friday prior to 11 AM MST ship the same day. Air orders placed after 11:00 AM MST ship the next business day. Ground orders placed before the 1 PM cut off ship within 1-2 business days and are not guaranteed to ship that same day. When a Ground order is placed after the 1 PM cut off the first processing day becomes the next business day. Ground orders placed after the 1 PM cut off will ship within the next two business days. As an example a ground order placed at 7:20 PM on Tuesday night will ship on Wednesday or Thursday. Ground orders placed Saturday and Sunday will ship Monday or Tuesday.
We use UPS, FedEx, USPS, and our own drivers for Denver Metro deliveries. No P.O. Boxes please. It is helpful to know if this is a business or a residential address. Some of our gifts ship directly from the manufacturer.
Please check ALL addresses to make sure they are up to date. Any incorrect addresses will have a minimum $18.50 charge for ground shipments and $24.50 for air shipments to re-deliver + any shipping/delivery charges required by our carriers since they will charge us. We guarantee delivery only to the addresses we are given. Mrs. B’s is not responsible for shipping or delivery charges incurred by the carrier when, (1) the customer provided an incorrect or outdated address, (2) the recipient is on vacation or unable/unwilling to accept the gift, or (3) the gift has to be re-routed to another location. There will also be a 20% restocking fee.
You may change the delivery address or delivery date as long as your order has not been delivered or is not on its way to being delivered. When making changes, please e-mail us at email@example.com or call us and include your order confirmation number, along with your daytime and evening phone numbers to facilitate the process. Same for a cancellation of an order.
December 1, 2021 through January 4th, 2022 Ground orders placed before the 12 pm MST cut off Monday through Friday typically ship within 2-4 business days. There are no guarantees on time frames due to carrier limitations on the quantity of packages they can pick up every day. If an order takes more than 2-4 days to ship you may cancel it anytime prior to shipping. There will not be any discounts offered on orders that take longer than 4 days to be transported out of the facility. Tracking is provided when the order is processed but, will not show movement until UPS actually scans the package. It will take 2-4 days for your order to ship and in the event UPS and FedEx are at full capacity possibly a day longer. As you all know UPS is leaving all packages without a signature. If you want a signature request UPS is charging 5.75 for that.

Claims and Return Policy:
We will do our utmost to create and send out perfect gifts but, sadly, sometimes this section is necessary.
If for any reason the recipients or purchaser is unhappy with a gift, it may certainly be returned.
(1) if the gift is simply not wanted, or you are not satisfied, you may ship it back to us at your expense and receive a partial or, in most cases, a full refund less the shipping cost. The refund is based on the gift’s perishability and condition upon being returned. The gift must be unopened and untampered with.
(2) If the gift is damaged or we have made an error, we will call tag (return label) the original gift and either ship a new one or refund the gift in full. However, if we cannot call tag the gift, no refund or credit can be offered. Retrieving the gift is the only way we have of verifying the damages and placing a claim with our carrier.
All damage claims, discrepancies, and late delivery claims must be made within 2 business days of the gift being received. Because of carrier restrictions, there will be NO exceptions to this policy. If the gift is disposed of before we can verify damages or discrepancies, sorry, we will be unable to issue a refund.
If a gift arrives damaged or there is a discrepancy, we will make every effort to resolve the issue in a timely manner and to your satisfaction!
