Shipping Rates

Towels By GUS understands how the price of shipping can impact your purchase decisions. For orders shipped within the Continental United States we charge a subsidized flat rate of $9.95 for UPS Ground Services.

At this time we are unable to ship bath linens outside of the "lower 48" Continental United States. Please understand, this not only excludes Hawaii and Alaska but also our friends and neighbors in Canada. 

Sales Tax

Towels By GUS is based Sonoma, California, in the San Francisco Bay Area. While most all of our bath linens are shipped from East Coast, orders being shipped to California are subject to a sales tax of 8.625%. 

Processing Time

Orders received by 4am (PST - or 7am on the East Coast), Monday-Friday, will be submitted to our partners the same business day. Orders placed after 4am on Friday, or anytime Saturday/Sunday, will be submitted to our partners on the next business day (typically, Monday). Please allow 2-3 business days for your order to processed by our partner and for the tracking details to be provided. Generally, deliveries along the East Coast take 2-4 business days to be completed while deliveries to the West Coast take 5 business days. Most orders take 7-10 days from the date of submission to be completed - swatches and monogrammed products will take longer. Unfortunately, expedited processing or shipping services are not available. 

Holiday Impact 

For those ordering Christmas gifts, to better ensure the timely receipt of your items no later than Tuesday, December 22, 2020, we encourage submitting your order:

- BEFORE Monday, December 7, 2020, for WEST coast deliveries or
- BEFORE Thursday, December 10, 2020, for EAST coast deliveries. 

Most of our partners schedule an annual inventory to begin the week after Christmas though some wait until the first week of January. Additionally, there are observed holidays where operations are closed. During this period, please anticipate there will be delays in processing and/or delays while in transit.

Benzoyl Peroxide

Over the counter (and Rx) acne creams and facial washes often contain Benzoyl Peroxide, an aggressive bleaching agent, which when combined with moisture becomes hydrogen peroxide. If anyone in your home uses these products, we encourage that you select only white bath linens as other colors will likely stain. Usage of these chemicals on color-dyed bath linens is evident in liquid-like patterns of the discoloration and will prevent replacement, refund, or an exchange.

While there are many product lines that claim to be resistant to this chemical, it is rarely accurate in the long-term and generally does not make for a quality bath linen, particularly in terms of softness and absorbency.
