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

Hickory Farms Gift Baskets

Sales tax laws are not uniform by any stretch of the imagination. Hickory Farms has very kindly explained all the intricacies and discrepancies across US state tax law for us though! Some states don't charge sales tax on non-food items. Other charge varying rates of sales tax for gifts that are entirely edible and those that contain non-food items (such as tins, baskets, serving platters and the like). Some states charge sales tax on everything for one standard rate: others add in your shipping & handling charges as taxable items! We've gone ahead and summarized this info for you nicely at Centsible's Review of Shopping Online at Hickory Farms.

Hickory Farms Always Offers Free Shipping For APO/FPO Addresses

Standard delivery for Hickory Farm's cheese, meats and dessert items depends on the method of shipment requested, your delivery location and the total dollar value of your order. Standard shipping charges varying between $5.99 and 22% of the merchandise total: expedited delivery and deliveries outside of the 48 continental United States all involve additional delivery costs. Those with serving military family will appreciate Hickory Farm's policy of free shipping to APO / FPO addresses. The Centsible opinion is that Hickory Farms is the BEST choice for sending gifts to APO/FPO addresses. They even have a separate selection of "military gifts" suitable for sending to APO / FPO addresses.

Is this a good deal for you?

If you're looking to send gifts to APO/FPO addresses, Hickory Farms is an excellent choice for avoiding shipping fees and their website makes it very easy to deliver to multiple addresses.
