Shopping Bug was created to better serve consumers.
Our customer service team, including sales associates, order processors, certified technicians, warranty specialists, and support managers, focus primarily on ensuring the quality of your shopping experience.
Our sites have also been designed with service in mind, including ease of navigation, educational content, manuals, brochures, spec sheets, and much more.
Shopping Bug promotes the following core values both inside and outside the workplace:
SERVICE - Create memorable connections driven by authentic support.
INTEGRITY - Do what you say you will do, even if no one is looking.
COMMUNITY - Respect diversity and open mindedness in and out of the workplace.
INNOVATE - Destroy the mold every time.
RISKS - Take them frequently, we are behind you.
BALANCE - Work hard and play hard.
COMMUNICATE - Even the smallest ideas have huge potential.
CELEBRATE - Small and big events with equal passion.
Shopping Bug offers Free Ground and Freight Shipping to the lower 48 states for all orders that exceed the minimum order value. Please refer to the top left corner of the website for the minimum order value.
Please note that some orders are split shipped from multiple shipping locations, generating multiple tracking numbers and multiple delivery dates, therefore please be sure to monitor each tracking number we send you after your order is shipped.
Freight Shipments ***CUSTOMERS MUST READ*** Customers are required to thoroughly inspect all packages and boxes. Failure to do so will bar the customer from recovery for undiscovered damages. Per the policies and regulations of the freight companies, shipping liability is transferred to the customer once goods are delivered and sign for. Please do not automatically assume that the contents of your packages are undamaged, simply because the boxes appear intact. Even if the truck driver is impatient or rushed, please keep in mind that this transfer of liability is taking place, making the customer ultimately responsible for undiscovered damages.
Missing Items or Boxes in the event of missing item(s), customers must contact Shopping Bug within 14 days from the delivery date. Per the policies of the freight companies, a 14 day grace period is granted to resolve any issues relating to missing items or boxes. Shopping Bug reserves the right to deny claims relating to missing items or boxes beyond the 14 day grace period, as there is no recourse with the freight companies beyond that point.
Alaska, Hawaii & Puerto Rico Customers will be charged additional transportation fees for shipments to Alaska, Hawaii & Puerto Rico. Customers will be notified via email after the order is placed if any additional fees are to be paid.
Small Parcel: We do offer shipping services to select countries on select orders, for small parcel shipments (under 150 lbs). We may contact you after the order has been placed to provide an exact shipping quote for your approval, prior to shipping. Please note that all shipping quotes include the shipping costs to the carrier ONLY. Additional importing, customs, and or duties are the responsibility of the customer, and paid COD (cash on delivery).
Freight Shipments: Unfortunately we do not offer international shipping services for all orders requiring freight services (over 150 lbs or oversized). We will however ship to a freight forwarder of your choice, within the lower 48 United States. All of our international customers utilize the services of a freight forwarder.
Purchases made at Shopping Bug web stores are tax free under the Internet Tax Freedom Act (ITFA).
Per the IFTA, retailers are generally required to collect taxes where they have a physical selling presence. If they do not have any such presence, they are not required to collect sales taxes. Located in Nevada, Shopping Bug assumes the tax burden for all orders shipping to Nevada, without charging customers.
Please make sure that you factor in these benefits while comparing prices from competing stores.
