Are there any restrictions on the free shipping benefit? Does it apply to all items and orders?
Free Standard shipping applies to all orders shipped to a US address (including Alaska and Hawaii), including the order where you purchase Perks. This includes all items, big and small. Perks benefits currently apply to Standard shipping speeds only.
How and when will I receive my Uncommon Goods credits?
Only paid members will receive two $5 credits during their membership period. The date that you'll receive your credits depends on the date that you entered into a paid Uncommon Perks membership, as outlined below. You'll get your $5 credits every six months and they'll be sent to the email address tied to your Perks account.
If you signed up after 12/9/2022, you will receive your first $5 on the first full day of your paid membership (the day after your payment goes through).
Example: If you sign up for your free trial on January 1 and do not cancel, you will be charged for a full membership on January 15 and you will receive your first $5 credit on January 16. You'll receive another $5 six months later and an additional $5 credit every six months as long as you're a Perks member.
If you signed up for your membership before 12/9/2022, here's when you'll receive your credits:
|If you signed up for Perks between...||You will receive your $5 credits on...|
|December 31 and March 29||April 1 and October 1|
|March 30 and June 29||July 1 and January 1|
|June 30 and September 29||October 1 and April 1|
|September 30 and December 30||January 1 and July 1|
Your $5 credits will be sent to the email address linked to your Perks account and are subject to 6-month expiration. You can always access your unused Uncommon Credits online by logging into your Uncommon Goods account and navigating to your Uncommon Credits page.
