DO YOU HAVE ‘X’ IN STOCK?
We take great pains to reflect accurate inventory counts. We expect to be about 99% accurate in our inventory accounts but unfortunately not 100%. We’ve invested heavily in systems to make sure that inventory is reflected accurately and our staff regularly double-checks. Having said that there’s a slight time lag between actual inventory count and what’s reflected in the system so approximately 1% of the time, particularly during military deployment preparation, there can be slight discrepancies in inventory count.
I HAVEN'T RECEIVED MY ORDER YET, BUT I SEE MY CREDIT CARD HAS BEEN CHARGED. WHAT'S GOING ON?
Don't panic! When an order is placed, we both authorize and charge the credit card used. This is to save you the hassle of having to resubmit your credit card information again after waiting for a backordered item or a product on preorder. If there are any changes or issues with your order, we may refund your card as necessary, but the initial charge will be for the full amount of the order.
DO YOU OFFER A SERVICE DISCOUNT?
U.S. Elite fully supports our men and women in the armed forces and first responders, so we are proud to offer a 10% ‘Duty Call’ discount on all purchases*.
*An account is required to receive your discount, for details click here
HOW CAN I MAKE A RETURN / EXCHANGE?
We're proud of our No Hassle Returns Policy: if you're not completely satisfied with your order you have 90 days to return your merchandise for a refund, sorry no exchanges. Please ensure the products is in new, resellable condition, with tags in place! Note that all sales on any clearance items or any items from The Drop Zone are final and therefore not included in the No Hassle Returns policy.
To initiate a return:
- Log in to your account and click My Account
- Under My Orders, click View Order next to any order marked as 'complete'
- Click on the Request RMA link at the top of the order information
- Fill in the details, including the number of items to be returned, the condition of the item(s)
- Alternatively, simply contact us at email@example.com to obtain a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number, with the following info:
- Your order number and your name
- Item(s) to be returned
- If exchange, what is the desired new item (color, size, etc)
- Reason for return
DO YOU OFFER PRICE MATCHING?
Yes we do! We just need to see proof of valid current pricing, from a reputable dealer, that has the item in stock. We reserve the right to not price-match on closeouts, as some companies will take a substantial loss on closeouts (and we have payroll and rent to pay). Price matching includes the total out-of-pocket the customer will pay so shipping and taxes (as applicable) are included. In other words, if Dealer X is selling a Delta Jacket for $100, and charging $10 shipping, we would price-match the total of $110. Regarding sites that are not available to the general public, we will look at price-matching on a case-by-case basis.
I’M LOOKING FOR QUANTITY DISCOUNTS, DO YOU OFFER THAT?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and advise which items you’re looking for, quantities, timetable and contact details and we’d be happy to provide you a quote.
DO YOU HAVE A PRINTED CATALOG THAT YOU CAN SEND ME?
We currently do not offer a printed catalog as our product offering is dynamic, evolving, and rapidly updates to bring you the best gear with accurate listings in our store. For that reason, the online store is the closest thing to a real-time catalog that we offer, so it's best to keep an eye out for new and updated offerings there.
