TSA Knives Helpful Tips

Table of Contents

Hi there! Thank you for choosing TSA Knives as your one-stop-shop for all things EDC. We are thriving to make an order process easy, fast and affordable for you. On this page you will find some useful information about shipping, handling, returns and answers to some common questions that others have asked. If you cannot find exact information you need, feel free to contact us and we will make sure that every question is answered.

What is the cost of shipping at TSA Knives?

All orders over $49 are shipping for free! Isn’t it great?
Order threshold is calculated for a product value without tax. Free shipping is offered only in the United States. If you are an international customer, please follow an international shipping guide, we can still arrange some great shipping prices for you.

If your order is less than $49, we offer a $4.99 flat rate for USPS Ground shipping. All shipping costs and options are displayed on a checkout page.

Pro tip: If you are less than $4.99 away from the $49 threshold, we offer a variety of accessories around that price. Simply add them to cart and save a few bucks.

How soon will my order be shipped?

At TSA Knives, we are fulfilling all orders the same business day. Our cutoff time is 3:00 PM CST. All orders placed before that time will be sent the same day, and orders placed after 3:00 PM will be sent on the following business day.

Shipping times may differ depending on your geographical location, but typically, “Ground Shipping” packages are expected to be delivered within 4-7 days. Upon placing an order, you will receive an email containing shipment details. This email indicates that the order has been prepared and is awaiting pickup for transportation. While some carriers may not promptly scan packages, it’s advised to monitor the provided tracking number.

How does your packaging look?

Our knives come in a non descriptive box to protect your privacy and reduce the cost so we can pass savings to you, the customer. That’s how we can ship products on time and speed up the workflow as well.
