Shipping Method

Here Be Books & Games primarily ships domestically via USPS Flat-Rate Priority Mail. Delivery usually takes 2-3 business days after shipment. Orders received by 5:00 p.m. ET, Tuesday thru Friday are usually shipped the next day. Orders received Saturday thru Monday generally ship on Wednesday. (We're closed Sunday and Monday.)

Shipping and handling costs are based on current USPS Flat-Rate Priority Mail rates. We use the smallest box appropriate to the item(s) purchased to keep your shipping costs as low as possible.

We currently ship only within the United States.  Shipping rates are as follows:

Some items will not fit into any of the Flat-Rate Priority Mail boxes. These items can be picked up at our store.  If, however, you need such an item shipped to you, please give us a call.

The default shipping method/calculation that displays in your cart is USPS Flat-Rate Priority Mail. If you prefer First Class Mail (small, flat items only) or to pick the item up at our store, you can select one of those methods during checkout.


Because we use USPS Flat-Rate Priority Mail, we can ship to any military personnel with APO or FPO address, regardless of the where they are stationed. Please note that the USPS does not provide tracking to APO and FPO addresses. Once the package leaves the USPS and is handed over to military mail, there is no resolution for damage or loss.
