Digital Downloads -back to top-

Payment Methods -back to top-
    We accept credit cards (Visa, MasterCard), PayPal, money order, or well concealed cash (at your own risk!).

All other payment methods, listed above, ship within 3 days after we receive them. If the cart on the web site is down, orders paid by credit card must be phoned in to our Mail Order Department at (312) 492-9634 or emailed to us at orders [at] thrilljockey [dot] com between the hours of 12pm and 6pm CST.

Shipping Charges -back to top-

    Domestic (US) customers:
      You have three domestic shipping options: UPS Ground Shipping, USPS Priority Mail, and USPS Media Mail. Due to the constant increases in postage rates, we still are offering the Media Mail service at a low flat rate of $3.00, no matter the size of your order. We here at Thrill Jockey will continue to offer the premium shipping services that we have always offered, however realize that not all of you are as concerned with time sensitivity. For more information on these services, see below.

      Note: Thrill Jockey is not responsible for any lost/damaged parcels shipped via the USPS unless additional Insurance or Registered services are purchased and applied to the order in question.  UPS Ground service offers free insurance and tracking services.

      UPS Ground : This option takes about 1-5 days depending on the destination. Cost is a flat fee of $10.00 for orders of any size and automatically includes insurance and tracking services. Shipping only to regular business or residential addresses ­ excludes PO Boxes. Sorry. Also, please be sure that the shipping address you submit is completely correct; any address changes during transit will result in an additional $5.50 charge to your credit card.

      USPS Priority Mail : Provides swift delivery. Usually takes 2-3 days for delivery depending on destination. Insurance is optional, but we strongly suggest that you consider this service. Thrill Jockey will not be responsible for any lost parcels which have not applied insurance. No exceptions.

      USPS Media Mail: This service is available for a flat fee of $3.00 no matter the size of your order. Delivery times vary based on destination but usually you should allow 3-7 business days for delivery. Insurance is also offered for all parcels shipped via Media Mail. Please note that apparel items cannot be shipped via Media Mail.

    Airmail/International customers:

      We will ship via USPS First Class Mail International (previously called Airmail) only. Each International order will be charged according to actual parcel weight and costs, which are calculated during checkout on our website. You have the option of adding the Registered Mail service at an additional charge. Registry service provides security and limited indemnity protection for First Class Mail International
