SHIPPING AND LOCAL DELIVERY PLEASE CALL US AT 800-220-7644 WITH ANY QUESTIONS
Ali's cookies are all natural, preservative free, and are baked fresh daily. Ali wants you to receive the freshest cookies possible, so as a general rule we will not ship on Thursday or Friday, as we do not want the package sitting idle over the weekend. Upon your request, we will make an exception and ship on Thursday if it is to a one day shipping zone, or a two day residential as Fedex ground delivers to residences on Saturdays, however we must caution you that if the package is not delivered by Friday afternoon, it may sit over the weekend. When in doubt, please call us and we can discuss alternatives.
Shipping: Orders received by 11:00 am EST will usually be sent out the same day if possible. Otherwise orders will be processed for the following day. Please keep this in mind when determining an arrival date for your shipment. Also, please do not include weekends, holidays or the actual shipment day when determining the number of days it will take for your gift to arrive.

Address Correction Charge:
Based on the delivery information given by the ordering customer, if FEDEX is unable to deliver any package due to an incorrect or incomplete address (examples include, but are not limited to, missing suite, apartment, or unit numbers, old addresses, and missing/incorrect ZIP Codes), FEDEX will determine and make reasonable efforts to secure the correct or complete address. If the correct or complete address is secured, FEDEX will attempt delivery, and the shipper will be provided with the correct address. An additional charge of $12 will be assessed to your credit card for an address correction fee. We reserve the right to pass along any additional charges from FEDEX to the ordering customer resulting from incomplete or incorrect delivery information given by the ordering customer.
Undeliverable Packages:Any package that is unable to be delivered due to incorrect information, untimely pick-up by recipient or recipient no longer at address, which is then returned to Ali's Cookies, will not be refunded and will only by re-shipped at customers request and cost. Regarding untimely pick-up, FEDEX will deliver the package at the delivery address without a signature unless the driver determines that the location is not sufficiently secure. If this happens, FEDEX will attempt to make a delivery up to three times. On the third attempt a notice will be left for the recipient to pick up the package at the FEDEX depot. If delivery does not happen after these attempts are made, the perishable package will be sent back to Ali's Cookies.
