Our goal is to provide our customers with a large selection of high quality, educational materials at discounted prices. Some stores will sell anything. At Learning Things, we believe we are held accountable for what we sell. Therefore, we carefully review all of our products to screen out any that teach falsehoods, especially regarding history and science. We offer materials from both Christian and secular publishers. Regardless of the publisher, we review all materials to screen out any that present false theories as if they are facts.
We strive to provide excellent customer service by offering toll free customer service phone support during normal business hours - Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM until 7:00 PM PST and Saturdays from 10:00 AM until 7:00 PM PST. Our online store is always open. You can check the status of your orders online by logging into your account. Our retail store is open six days per week. For more details, see our store hours. We offer fast shipping. Most orders ship the next business day.

Almost all orders are shipped within five or seven business days, unless the items you ordered are back-ordered. The delivery time after it leaves our warehouse depends on the delivery method you select. All delivery methods available for your order are displayed when you click the drop-down list on our checkout page. Here is some information to help you select the one that's right for you.
US Postal Service Media Mail - If you want the lowest cost and you're not in a hurry and you do not need detailed tracking information, then this is the delivery method for you. However, if your order weighs more than 10 pounds, USPS Media Mail will not appear as one of your choices for delivery methods. While it is usually the lowest cost delivery method, it is not the fastest method. Delivery time is usually 1-3 weeks (delivery times for international, APO and FPO addresses are shown near the bottom of this page). Tracking numbers are emailed to you the day your order ships. You can enter the tracking number at usps.com, but with US Postal shipments the tracking number only reports when the shipment is delivered and does not provide any tracking information while in transit because the package is not scanned at any distribution facilities. Delivery times are not guaranteed, but if your order has not been delivered within 4 weeks, we will re-ship it to you at no extra cost.
US Postal Service Priority Mail - A great value and usually delivered within one week, this option is available only for very light weight orders weighing less than 2 pounds. We do not offer it for larger orders because it becomes too expensive compared to UPS Ground. Tracking numbers are emailed to you the day your order ships. You can enter the tracking number at usps.com, but with US Postal shipments the tracking number only reports when the shipment is delivered and does not provide any tracking information while in transit because the package is not scanned at any distribution facilities. Although most orders are delivered within one week, delivery times are not guaranteed, but if your order has not been delivered within 2 weeks, we will re-ship it to you at no extra cost.
UPS Ground - For reliable ground delivery with excellent tracking information at a reasonable cost, UPS Ground is the best service available. Delivery times are not guaranteed but packages are normally delivered within 1-9 business days after leaving our warehouse. Tracking numbers are emailed to you the day your order ships. You can get the current status of your delivery and the estimated delivery date by entering your tracking number at ups.com. If your package is not delivered within 2 weeks, we will trace your shipment, which usually takes a week. If your package is not found when traced, we will re-ship your order at no extra cost.
