Ships Today Terms and Conditions

If we indicate that an item qualifies for a Ships Today shipment on the product page, you may be eligible for a 10% discount, up to $500 on the ordered item if we fail to ship such item on the day ordered.

The following requirements must be met to qualify for same day shipment:

  • SKU must be designated on the product page as a “Ships Today” item
  • Customer must be an existing customer with an active ERP account
  • Customer’s account must be in good standing
  • All required permits and end user declarations must be in place
  • Order must be shipping to an eligible address in the United States
  • Order must be electronically date- and time- stamped at 6:00 p.m. EST or earlier, upon receipt by us
  • Order must be placed on a regular business day, Monday-Friday, excluding holidays
  • Only electronic orders qualify (including orders placed through our e commerce site or through an eligible eProcurement connection)
  • No lot specific or other special requests can be entered in the “Comments” section during order placement
  • Only available on www.sigmaaldrich.com

We reserve the right to change the products and/or SKU’s which are eligible for Ships Today or to suspend or terminate the Ships Today program without notice. Customers understand and agree that cold chain products (those requiring either wet or dry ice for shipment) do not ship on Fridays, so an order for any such product placed on a Friday will ship the following Monday. If a customer requests a specific shipment or delivery date, the product will not ship same day, but rather on the date requested by the customer. The guarantee does not apply if the item fails to ship on time due to an unforeseen circumstance outside of our control. Any guarantee of shipment date is not a guarantee of delivery date; customers understand and agree that an order may be delayed subsequent to shipment and that we will have no liability for any such delay.

All claims related to our failure to meet a Ships Today guarantee must be received via the claim form available on www.sigmaaldrich.com by us within 15 calendar days after the date of placement of the applicable order. All such claims must include a reference to the order number, purchase order number, company name, contact name, email address or phone number, and product number to which the claim pertains.

Our General Terms and Conditions of Sale (available at https://www.sigmaaldrich.com/help-welcome/ordering-product/terms-and-conditions-of-sale.html) apply to all sales of products, including those eligible for same day shipment.
