You can estimate the shipping cost and carriers options at the Cart page.
We offer free standard Ground shipping on all orders of $59 or more, shipping to an address within the USA.
Our free shipping offer is open only to shipping addresses within the

International Orders (Outside USA)
We gladly ship worldwide to most countries. In fact 20% of our orders are international!
Shipping costs are calculated at the time of checkout. Shipping prices are calculated based upon location, distance and weight.
You can estimate the shipping cost and carriers options at the Cart page. Please enter the country, province or city and the postal code for the shipping address in the calculate shipping box and click on the "calculate" button.
International shipping times can vary widely. When you check out you have a choice for Standard shipping, First Class International, Priority International (Priority is the only option for packages over 4 lbs.), or Express International. Standard shipping and First Class orders to Canada average 6 to 12 business days, and to Euorop around 2 weeks. Priority averages 6 to 10 business days. For all other countries Priority averages 6 to 10 business days. First Class shipping varies too widely to be estimated. Please note about 5% of international orders take longer than normal, up to 4 or 6 weeks to arrive. This is often due to a hold-up in customs or mis-routing in the country. Although we cannot guarantee delivery time we do guarantee that your item will arrive. If it has been long enough for the USPS to classify it as lost we will ship a replacement.
Brilliant Puzzles is not responsible for any levies, duties, import fees, taxes, or other charges. We suggest you check with your local government agency to determine the extent of such charges prior to purchase. Credit will not be given for packages not delivered due to non-payment of fees.
Post Order Support

In the unlikely event that your order is lost we will of course send you another. If you are in the US and it has been over 2 weeks since your order shipped, or if you are international and it’s been over 6 weeks please email us at [email protected] with the details of your order and we will help you out.
