FREE SHIPPING and Freight Saver Allowances
We'd be happy if we could ship all orders over $59 with Free Shipping.
However, many of our products are heavy or bulky. Carriers charge by weight, volume and distance. To maintain low prices and still credit some or all shipping charges, on about 150,000 basic hardware store products, we divide the US into Three Eastern Zones and One Western Zone.

At $59 FREE SHIPPING begins and Freight Saver Allowances are available to street addresses in the 48 contiguous states. We give FREE SHIPPING based on 20 pounds per $100 in our Eastern States (Zones A, B & C) and 12 pounds per $100 in our Western States (D Zone). At $500+ FREE SHIPPING increases by 50%.

Our Hot Buys Outlet
items use a different method to calculate shipping. Hot Buys Outlet items can be ordered with and shipped with Freight Saver items above and Freight Zero items below to reach the $59+ level. On smaller orders Hot Buys Outlet Only shipping starts as low as $2.98 per shipment and never exceeds $5.98 per shipment. At $59+ combined Hot Buys Outlet Orders SHIP FREE to street addresses in the 48 contiguous states.
FREIGHT ZERO SPECIALS
ship free to street addresses in the 48 contiguous states, regardless of other items purchased. Like Hot Buys, they do count towards dollars spent to reach the $59 levels. They do not earn additional freight saver allowances.
Cost Plus (heavy or bulky) Products
, such as nails, fencing and fertilizer, are Not Freight Saver Qualified. They do not earn a Freight Saver Allowance or count as Dollars spent to qualify for Freight Saver or Free Shipping allowances. At checkout, we calculate every US address, both residential and commercial, and offer the current published FedEx Ground or Home Rate, without adder.
will appear as an option in your shopping cart on orders of $59 or more whenever it is lower than the actual zoned Ground FedEx Rate. We scan all rates including Commercial Rates if you are shipping to a recognized non-home-based business address.DO NOT
select Freight Saver if your order is time sensitive as it may delay your order by a couple of days. Orders are staged so that Overnight and Second Day orders ship ahead of Ground and Priority Mail Orders. The slowest methods to select are Basic Economy and Freight Saver, which ship last. Freight Saver orders are packed on a time and space available basis without overtime at the lowest cost service by our choice of carrier(s).Certain products are not qualified for Free Shipping or a Freight Saver Allowance.
When mixing Freight Saver Qualified products and Cost Plus No Freight Saver products, we allow you to check out as a single order but your shipments may be separated.
