***Holiday Shipping 2016***
All of our shipments normally ship ground. UPS and FedEx stop guaranteeing their Ground shipments December 12 - 24. This means that any shipment that normally takes them 2 business days to deliver can take 3 days or longer through no fault of the carrier nor Cincy2U.com.
Both UPS and FedEx have extended their delivery times for air shipments by 90 minutes during December 19 – 23. The shipment is still guaranteed to be delivered on the guaranteed date, but not by 10:30AM or 3PM. The Carriers will not leave a package at a closed business.
Cincy2U.com normally ships frozen orders on Monday and Tuesday. We recommend shipping frozen orders by December 12 to ensure delivery before Christmas. We will still ship frozen orders on December 19 and 20, but keep in mind there is no guarantee that your order will be delivered by Christmas. ***Holiday Shipping 2016***

To minimize the chance of a shipment sitting over the weekend in transit, our normal shipping days for frozen items are Monday and Tuesday and sometimes on Wednesday depending on the final destination. At the current time we cannot ship frozen items to P.O. Boxes, APO/FPO addresses, or to foreign countries, including Mexico and Canada.
The only product currently shipped to PO Boxes is 12 packets of Cincinnati Recipe Chili Mix; since we use the US Postal Service (USPS) exclusively. We will also ship at our discretion small orders using USPS. If you need to have any other order shipped to a PO Box please send us an email.
It is not required; however we recommend shipping frozen items to a business address when possible. Delivery is guaranteed before closing time of the business day. With a residential delivery, it is by the end of the driver’s day (this could be as late as 8:00 PM in some cases!). Please remember, the delivery commitment does not start when the order is placed. It begins when we hand your package to the carrier.
Frozen items - Your order will ship from us solidly frozen. Some thawing is normal and should be expected during shipping. It is safe to refreeze a cold item when you receive your order. The item should be cold to the touch. Please note that neither the shipping company nor cincy2u.com can accept responsibility for delays due to weather or other reasons that cause the carrier not to honor their delivery guarantee. If you are sending our products as a gift, please inform the recipient to be on the lookout for a package. Unfortunately neither cincy2u.com, nor the carriers can take responsibility for a package that was delivered as requested and left outside.
Incorrect Addresses - Unfortunately neither cincy2u.com, nor the carriers can take responsibility for shipping delays caused by incorrect addresses. Address corrections will be done when possible for a $18 fee. So please be precise and accurate when typing in addresses.
Dented Can Policy:
When a can is dented near the seam or junction of the cover, it is possible for air to enter the can. These cans should be DISCARDED. Feel the can and visually inspect it. SAFE can dents are not on the seams and have not compromised the can junction of the cover. We’ll replace these dented cans that need to be discarded once at our cost. We must receive digital pictures before we will replace the cans. Carriers claim policy is that the can must be punctured before a claim will be honored.
There is an additional fee for orders outside the US. This fee will depend on the destination, weight and size. No frozen items can be shipped. Any duties or taxes are the responsibility of the receiver. Contact us for details at firstname.lastname@example.org .
