How To Save Money On Shipping

You can get Muggsy's Beans delivered straight to your door. Orders from Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, North & South Dakota, Illinois, and Nebraska are shipped using Speedee Delivery, a locally owned and operated company with shipping rates that are up to 70% cheaper than national carriers. All other states in the "lower 48" will get their orders shipped via either the US Postal Service, or UPS. We don't ship to Alaska or Hawaii due to the cost involved.

The harsh reality of shipping is this: the first pound is always the most expensive. That is a fact no matter who handles the packages. Each additional pound is offered at a fraction of the first. For example, shipping one pound from Minnesota (where we are) to our nation's capital would cost over $10 using UPS, and around $7.50 via USPS, but shipping two pounds would cost $11 and $9.75, respectively.

The logic is obvious: in order to save money on shipping, order several pounds at a time. Don't worry about waste, with proper storage, your coffee will retain its freshness.

Eclipse & Vacation

Solar Eclipse

On Monday, August 21st there will be a total eclipse of the sun across much of the central US. So I'm headed to Missouri to watch it. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, because the next one to come across the US won't be until 2045. I will be out of town that day, and will be traveling back all day on Tuesday. You can place orders on this web site, but I won't be able to ship them until the end of that week.

Then from August 28th through September 5th, I will be out of town. I've heard people mention this thing called a “vacation” and I thought I'd give it a try. Sounds fun. Again, you can place orders as usual, but I won't be filling or shipping them until later that week.

Muggsy's Beans will be at the Sauk Rapids Farmers Market this summer! We hope to see you there.
