Ways to Save on Shipping:
North American Residence (US & Canada)
We totally understand that shipping charges are a bummer, and our website is our main storefront, we have set up a number of ways to help take the sting out of shipping.
Check out all the ways in which you can save on your shipping charges:
1. FREE SHIPPING COUPON CODE - To receive a free shipping coupon code on one order, sign up for the mailing list by clicking here. After signing up for the mailing list, the coupon code will be sent to your inbox within 24 hours. Please check your spam / junk folder if you don't see it within that time period.
2. BUY IN PERSON AT ONE OF THE LOCATIONS GROUNDED SAGE IS SOLD - Alternatively, you can avoid shipping altogether by visiting one of the several locations that carry IPAR Biotech products. Most locations do not carry the full line of IPAR Biotech products, so it's always a good idea to call ahead if you're looking for something specific. You'll find a list of locations by clicking here.
LONDON ONTARIO PICKUP: If you live in or around London, Ontario, you also have the option to cut down on the cost of shipping by placing an order online for pickup at The Been Garden. Scroll down to "Can I pick up my order" (near the bottom of the page) for more info.
3. CASH IN YOUR BEAUTY REWARD POINTS - Every time you place an order with us, you earn rewards points. These points can be cashed in for store credit which can be used to cover products or shipping costs (or both)! Note: checking out as a "guest" voids any reward points. Be sure to always log into your account before checking out (or set up an account the first time you place an order). Want to know more about reward points? No problem! Read more on our FAQ page.
