Returns, Refunds, Re-Stocking Fees

RETURNS:  Return Authorization Number required for all returns.  Please call or e-mail us for a RA# before shipping.  All returns must be properly packaged, and have a valid RA# prominently written on outside of the box.   No returns on any product after 30 days!  See our Order Information section on Returns, Refunds, Re-Stocking Fees to review specific conditions and terms. For some returns, a 25% re-stocking fee will be charged (on value of items before any discounts), and this section specifies when such a fee will be applied.

TELEPHONE AND FAX ORDERS: Processing of orders placed on-line begins within 1 business day of receipt. There is usually a delay of 2-3 business days before orders phoned or faxed in are begun to be processed. This is because, as computers have taken over many staff functions, a staff person must replace your order on-line before it can be processed.

ORDER TURNAROUND TIME: When an order is received, we try to fill it completely with items in stock. If everything is in stock, the order will ship that day or the next day. If items are not in stock, we try to get the items from the distributor, and ship the order as complete as possible. This results in a shipping delay of 3-5 days, before the order is shipped. Even if you indicate that you want 2-Day or Overnight shipping, there may be a delay of 3-5 days before the order is shipped, unless you have emailed us ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS directing us otherwise.

IF AN ITEM IS OUT OF STOCK: Land of Odds does not backorder items. We ship all items that are in stock, and out-of-stock (O/S) those items which are not currently available from us, or from our distributors. If you are ordering SEVERAL ITEMS WHICH YOU MUST HAVE "ALL OR NONE", then please email or notify us of this fact when you place your order. Normally, we ship what is available, and out-of-stock the rest.
