We ship Monday - Friday except holidays.
All shipments are made by UPS, FEDEX or the US Postal service.
All complete orders will ship within 48 hours of the order being received and payment information verification as long as the product(s) are in stock.
Cues Plus reserves the right to choose the shipping option at our discretion to provide the same, or better, delivery time.
We would love to ship everything to you for free but economics makes it impossible. So what we do is to get shipping rates directly from the shipping companies, ship only based on the weight of the product, product dimentions, and shipping address. Also we ship orders over $85 for free*! The great off-set, for right now until the rules change, is we do not collect tax unless the order ships to Colorado. So overall, we hope that with our discount on the product, no tax, and discounted shipping rates you will end up with a great deal! Please read more about our shipping below.....

--------------------------- Frequently Asked Questions ---------------------------
Q) What is the deadline for shipping packages around Christmas?
A) The best way to answer this question is to use the UPS shipping schedule at www.ups.com. But as a general guidline: Click here for a UPS Ground map. Do not forget to add in time for order processing, payment verification, and / or weekend and holidays.
Q) Will UPS ship to Post Office (P.O.) Boxes?
A) UPS will ship to some P.O. boxes. If you have had UPS deliver to your P.O. box then they most likely will in the future. If they do not deliver to your P.O. box UPS will send you a post card with your pick up location where you can pick up your package. If US Postal Service (USPS) service is available as a shipping option and you want to ship to a P.O. Box choose USPS.
Q) When should I expect my order to ship?
A) Instock items usually ship the next business day, although sometimes due to events outside our span of control the shipment may occur the day after. Out of stock items usually ship within 5 business days. Back-ordered items may take more than 5 business days. Special orders can take 8 weeks or more to be manufactured and will ship when completed.
Q) Why does it take up to 8 days for UPS ground?
A) We are located in Colorado so the best time in transit to some of the coastal locations is 5 days. Since UPS ground shipments do not normally travel on Saturday or Sunday this may add an additional 2 days 'travel time'. So if you order an item on Thursday and it ships on Friday your order will travel by UPS for a few hours on Friday and resume the shipment on Monday adding two additional days to the shipping time.
Q) If I order an item to be shipped by Second Day Air on Thursday will I receive it on Saturday?
A) Most likely not. UPS does not normally deliver packages on Saturday or Sunday. So if your order was placed on Thursday and second day air was selected, the best you could expect is that it will arrive on Monday. (Next Day Air usually will deliver on Saturday but not Sunday).
Q) What about returns?
A) Please see our information pages --> Terms and conditions - Return Policy. Last updated Nov 6, 2013.
Q) Do you ship to APO/FPO addresses?
A) DEFINITELY!!!!!! We are proud of our military, families, and the others who work with our forces overseas. So YES we GLADLY ship to APO / FPO addresses!! For Christmas orders to APO/FPO Box Addresses:To ensure adequate time December 11th is usually the last date to mail items to arrive on time for Christmas.
