Bacon Scouts™ enables you to buy incredible meats from the best meat markets across the country. Meats are packaged and shipped directly from the meat market to your home. As such, there will be separate shipping charges for each vendor from whom you order.
Each vendor may have different days that they are able to process and ship orders. Order processing dates are listed on each product page. For most vendors, your product will ship only on Mondays and Tuesdays of each week and in limited circumstances, Wednesdays. The reason for this is to ensure that the freshest possible product arrives at your door unspoiled and isn’t left sitting in a warehouse over a weekend or holiday.
- How much are shipping costs?
All orders ship free except for orders being shipped to California, Montana, Oregon, and Washington who will incur and additional $9 charge due to shipping distance from our meat markets.
- How will my meat stay fresh during shipping?
We provide our vendors with the highest quality coolers available on the market which have been tested to meet our rigorous standards. All of our perishable products ship frozen and are packed into the coolers, along with frozen gel packs to ensure that your order will arrive at a minimum of refrigerated temperature. We do not ship with dry ice.
- My order did not arrive frozen.
Most orders shipped using ground shipping will not arrive as frozen as they were packed, but you can rest assured that your meats are still at a safe temperature. Our packaging materials and process is designed to ensure that your meats arrive fresh to your door. Once you receive your order of perishable meat products, you should refrigerate it as soon as possible.
- Which shipping methods do you offer?
We are pleased to offer the following shipping methods for all orders. Actual method used to ship your order will be determined by Bacon Scouts.
- USPS Priority Mail
- 2nd Day Air
- Is ground shipping the right choice fast enough?
Ground shipping will be a great choice for most customers. Ground shipping is offered to customers who have been determined to live within an acceptable ground shipping zone from the respective vendor(s) from which they order. The maximum ground shipping time is three days from vendor to customer. If you live in a zone that is beyond three days time for ground shipping from a particular vendor whose meats you order, then your order will be shipped using a faster shipping method. This is to ensure the highest integrity meats for your order.
- Where do you ship?
We currently ship to the 48 contiguous United States. At this time we do not ship to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, APO/FPO or any other location other than the 48 contiguous United States.
