Shipping Options

We're Your Long Distance Local Bookstore

We know that many of our customers aren't local or only visit Northern Michigan a few times a year so it's important to us that we offer plenty of options for you to get your favorite books (and support your favorite bookstore!) without any hassle.  Currently we offer the following shipping options:

Basic shipping:  For orders under $25, basic shipping is a low-cost option.  We use Media Mail shipping for items that qualify, and First Class or Parcel Select (depending on weight) for non-media items.  These orders should arrive within 3-8 business days (per USPS estimates).

Free shipping:  Orders over $25 are eligible for free basic shipping.  Brilliant Books Members also have the added benefit of free shipping on every order regardless of size.

Priority shipping:  For a higher fee, orders of any size can be shipped via Priority Mail.  These packages should arrive within 2 days and Priority packages are also delivered on Sundays in some locations.

International shipping:  We offer shipping worldwide, but please note that not all countries are currently listed on our website.  If you are unable to enter your international address, please contact us at life@Brilliant-Books for assistance.  Additionally, international shipping estimates calculated by the website are not always accurate based on international fees and the weight/dimensions of your package.  We will confirm the shipping costs with you before your order is processed as your total may change.
