Transit Times

Christmas 2018
Shipping Information

Christmas will be here before you know it! We want to make sure that we're able to ship your gifts in time. So . . .

Order Early. This is the best course of action. Order now and we'll schedule your shipment to arrive on time. This way, you can be certain the items will be in stock and deliver in time for Christmas.

Christmas Eve is Monday, December 24th and Christmas Day is Tuesday, December 25th. There will be NO regular United Parcel Service (UPS) service Christmas Day! So, the last day for UPS delivery is Monday, December 24th.

Our 48-Hour Shipping Commitment states that although most orders ship out in one or two business days, between Thanksgiving and Christmas we are very busy, and, require extra time. During Christmas, we need the full 48 hours to process, pack and ship your order. So, please add 48 hours to all UPS transit times.

Deadlines for Ground Service:
UPS does not operate on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. So, these days are not included in transit times. Add 48 hours to transit times and here are the order deadlines:
Orders which are 5 transit days must be received by midnight Monday, December 10th
Orders which are 4 transit days must be received by midnight Tuesday, December 11th
Orders which are 3 transit days must be received by midnight Wednesday, December 12th
Orders which are 2 transit days must be received by midnight Thursday, December 13th
Orders which are 1 transit day must be received by midnight Friday, December 14th

Deadlines for 2-Day Air Service:
All 2-Day Air Orders must be received by midnight Friday, December 14th

Deadlines for Next Day Air Service:
Sorry! . . . Monastery Greetings does NOT offer Next Day Air Service

PLEASE NOTE: UPS does not count weekends or holidays when calculating their shipping times. Our 48-hour shipping commitment excludes weekends, holidays, closings due to extreme weather conditions and other related delays. It takes only one big storm in one part of the country for UPS to suspend all transit times and shipping guarantees.
