Fixed $15 Shipping Rates!

Despite the recent rate hikes by the carriers, Affordable Trophies is offering fixed rate shipping of $15 per order! Whether you order one trophy or a hundred, the shipping will be the same – $15!

Of course, there are some limitations … This flat rate is for standard ground shipments within the continental US. We can’t offer this low flat rate for orders to be shipped to Alaska or Hawaii; standard rates will apply to those locations. If an order needs items shipped to separate locations, then there is a shipping cost of $15 per location. Our “Master Trophy” will require additional shipping due to its size. That’s it – no other restrictions or limitations! For the vast majority of our customers, this flat rate shipping offers significant savings!

We implemented flat rate shipping five years ago, at $10 per shipment. Rates that UPS charges us have slowly creeped up a little each year, and this year the carriers implemented new dimensional rates that dramatically increased the cost of shipping trophies. We had absorbed the previous rate hikes, but we had no choice but to raise our standard rate with the 2015 rates being charged by the carriers. We are still absorbing most of the increase (we are seeing shipments cost us as much as double previous rates), but we had to raise our flat shipping rate to offset at least some of this increase.
