How do I qualify?
To qualify for our free 3-day shipping, just make sure your order is $49 or more. That’s it, no catches, no gimmicks; our free shipping really is free.

What carrier will deliver my free shipping order?
For our free 3 day shipping offer, we use the following carriers or services:
- UPS – Ground
- UPS – 3 Day Select
- Postal Priority Mail
How is the carrier decided?
To keep prices low on all of our fine products, we will normally choose the most economical carrier for our free 3-day shipping offer. We will not sacrifice quality for a lower price; if a carrier is not able to meet our shipping time needs, we will use another carrier regardless of the expense. We do NOT use Smart Post or Sure Post, which are popular for companies that offer free shipping; these methods may save money, but they can ultimately delay shipping time by as much as 2 days.
For lighter packages, we will use Postal Priority Mail, which has a 2-3 business day delivery timeframe anywhere in the contiguous United States.
For heavier packages, we will use one of two options: UPS Ground for orders shipping near our Oregon warehouse or UPS 3-Day Select for orders east of Colorado.
Why would we offer free expedited shipping?
Drip Depot strives to provide its customers with a higher level of service and support that is unmatched by anyone else in the industry. You don’t have time to wait for your products to arrive; extended shipping times could mean missed gardening opportunities and less than healthy plants. We have always shipped your packages same day when placed before 2 PM PST Monday – Friday. Now, by offering our 3-day shipping guarantee, we can have your order at your doorstep and ready for you to install in your garden sooner than ever before.
