While the holiday season is our favorite time of year here at Inked Gaming, it’s also our busiest, which means some of the more crucial parts of our business can become quite complex. Shipping, for example, is one of those crucial points that we really try to focus on when the holiday rush really gets rockin’.
We also tend to have a lot of questions pop up from our customers, especially those who were hoping to have their goods delivered by or before December 25th. So, we’ve put together this little holiday shipping deadline/cutoff post for you to refer back to. In case you didn’t see it, we also touched on these points in our Holiday Q&A blog that was posted just recently.
As you can imagine, shipping can be rather complicated and even unpredictable during these busy times when everyone is looking to get their goods ASAP. Whether it’s a gift for you or someone else, you want your goods before that big day when you want to unwrap. We understand this better than anyone, which is why we decided to give our domestic and international customers a deadline for their holiday shopping/ordering.
If you’re planning on doing some holiday shopping with us and wish to have your order(s) before December 25th, here are some key dates/deadlines that you’ll want to keep in mind!
For domestic customers:
If you’re ordering from within the U.S., your deadline order date is December 9, 2022. Orders placed up to December 13th may use 2nd Day Air for guaranteed delivery. Just be ready to pay a little extra for shipping.
For international customers:
If you’re ordering from outside the U.S., your deadline is December 1, 2022. Any international orders placed by December 9th can use FedEx International Priority for guaranteed delivery by the 25th. Again, if you choose to go this route, be prepared to pay a bit more for shipping.
We totally get it if you don’t want to pay more for shipping. So, again, if you want to avoid paying extra, we recommend getting your orders in by Dec 9th (if you’re in the U.S.) or December 1st (if you’re outside the U.S.), that way your order has time to get to you.
With that, we encourage you to start your holiday shopping spree ASAP, snag any gear you, or a favorite fellow gamer may need, and get your goods ordered by the deadline dates above. It’s still November, but if the days continue to move at this pace, December 1st and 9th will be here before you know it!
