Shipping With BladeOps


We have free shipping, all the time on every order.  That about explains it.  As we all get ready for the Holiday season, a frequent question is, “How long will it take my package to get here?”  The short answer is, if you use the free shipping option, about 4-7 days.  Most of the difference in time depends on where you are in relation to us.  We are in SLC, UT.  If you are in Florida or Maine, it will most likely take closer to 7 days.  If you are in Nevada, sometimes the packages make it in 3 days.  If you are a little pressed for time–you want your knife fast–you can upgrade to 2-3 day Priority shipping.  This costs just $4.80.  About 99% of the Priority shipments make it in 2 or 3 days.  If you want it the next day–go with Express.  We charge $20.00 for this and you get your package the next business day. 
Also, along these lines, because of the shipment cutoff times, if we recieve your order much after mid day –it will ship out the next business day. In light of all this information, we suggest that you place orders by the 15th of December if you are going with the Free Shipping Option and want your package before the  25th.  Order by the 20th if you are using the Priority Option, and if you are like me, you should still be able to order on the 23rd before noon and get your package by the 24th. 
Happy Holidays from BladeOps to you and yours. 

In Case You Missed our Email

Just in case you missed our email, we have a special holiday coupon currently available.  Just type the word THANKS  (just like that, all in capitals) in the coupon code line as you checkout and you will recieve a 7% discount.  This coupon is not good where not valid and is not good with any other coupons we have availabe.  I typed that last part real small so it felt like a radio commercial where they try to jam all the legal stuff in really fast so you can’t hear it or have any chance of actually understanding it.  Happy Holidays from BladeOps to you and yours. 

Ashmarlin, One Really Great Blog

In every family, it seems, there is at least one person who can tell a story.  As far back as I can remember, whenever my family would get together and start with the whole, “remember when. . . “, the story telling would quickly be turned over to my older brother.  He has that knack of knowing exactly how to wring every bit of suspense and fun out of telling what really happened that day.  Christian writes a blog called Ashmarlin.  If you get a chance, give it a try.  It is one, really great blog.
