All orders placed after 3:00 pm today (December 19th, 2008) will be shipped after the New Year. With the upcoming holidays, UPS and USPS are either closed or showing that they are behind in their deliveries. We here at Instead Electronic Cigarettes have decided that to ensure there are no lost packages or delays beyond our control, we will not be shipping any orders between December 20th, 2008 and January 2nd, 2009. We apologize for any inconvenience. All orders will be shipped on January 2nd and depending on your location, should arrive to you between the 9th and 10th of January, hopefully earlier.
Before placing your order, please read our recent post on Paying for Your Electronic Cigarette. By following these step-by-step directions, you will guarantee that there are no issues with placing your order and that we will be able to ship out to you on January 2nd, 2009, preventing any further delay in delivery.
One further note on holiday shipping: If your electronic cigarette purchase is a gift, our deadline for shipping to arrive before Christmas was Wednesday, December 17th, 2008. We apologize, but any orders placed after this date cannot be guaranteed delivery before December 24th, 2008. As it is the holiday season and many packages are traveling through the UPS and USPS system, even an over night package cannot be guaranteed. This is beyond our control.
And as always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We are here for you and happy to help!
