Mrs Fields Sales-Tax-Free Shopping

Mrs. Fields Gifts, Inc

Centsible's Sales Tax Free Shopping Series

Mrs. Fields Only Charges Sales Tax For Orders Shipping to Utah

Mrs. Fields Cookies offers sales tax savings for anyone who will be delivering their package outside of Utah. All orders shipping to addresses outside of Utah DO NOT have sales tax applied to them.

How much savings does this mean and what are the shipping charges?

Mrs. Fields Gifts, Inc

Depending on the state you live in, your state sales tax savings are between 1% (Illinois food sales tax) and 5.5% (Tennessee food sales tax).* Standard delivery for Mrs. Fields gifts depends on the method of shipment requested and your delivery location, with Utah addresses being delivered by standard shipping within 1 to 3 business days and Eastern / Southern addresses taking between 4 to 6 days to arrive.Mrs. Fields deliveries are really good for gift-giving rather than just buying them for yourself though: the shipping charges are per item based on the price of each item and range from $6.95 to $31.95. If you are thinking of sending a gift of Mrs. Fields cookies though, you CAN actually send something substantial for under $30 with shipping included.

Not only that but you're more likely to get exactly what you're looking for when you shop online. Combine this with coupon codes and free shipping offers, what more could you ask for? What about no sales tax?

No Sales Tax on Internet Sales?

In the Constitution there is a little clause that prevents taxation on goods crossing state lines. This has recently been subject to much debate, what with the internet making interstate sales much more easier and common. The popular belief though is with the huge differences from state to state in their various sales tax laws, it would put an unecessary burden on small businesses to calculate appropriate sales taxes for areas outside of their own state. Thus, businesses are only subject to collect sales tax on sales in states where they have a "significant presence". Items you can purchase tax-free online might surprise you!

Mrs. Fields Gifts, IncEvery day,'s Deal of the Day blog will feature a different online store. We'll let you know where they collect sales tax and where they don't.
