Shipping

All shipping is through USPS. Orders are usually shipped within 24 business hours and always before 36 business hours. Once a package has shipped, Priority Mail takes 2-3 days to arrive and Media Mail takes 3-9 days. Media Mail to Alaska or Hawaii can take 2-4 weeks because it goes by boat. When an item ships, our system automatically sends an email with tracking information. Make sure to check your spam folder if you can’t find a tracking email within 36 hours after ordering.

Will I be charged sales tax? Only if your order originates in Utah (6.75%).

Do you have sales or offer discounts?

We do things very differently than other companies! One of the main goals of The Good and the Beautiful is to make top-quality, thorough, faith-based homeschool curriculum affordable so that families do not have to turn to non-faith-based materials; settle for black-and-white, visually dry materials; or spend precious time away from things that matter most in life in order to piece together their own materials. These things are important to us and are a constant focus in our company’s decisions! Thus, rather than marking up our curriculum so we can discount it during certain times, our company has chosen to always offer our products at a discount. Because the prices on the curriculum are so incredibly low, especially for the quality and the amount of material in full color, we are basically having a constant sale! We want you to have the best possible price every day of the year! Thus, we never discount the curriculum (except 10% off at our conventions because ticket sales help cover the discount). However, we always have the following free shipping codes available for large orders. Please note that these codes must be used at the time of purchase. We cannot refund shipping costs if you forget to use the code.

USA ORDERS: Use coupon code FOURHUNDRED for free shipping on orders of $400 or more.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Use coupon code INTER to get $30 off your order of $400 or more. (Our system does not create free shipping codes for international orders, so we offer this promotion for international customers.)

Also, we offer a free shipping code on orders of $75 or more from December 26th-January 4th (Code=NEWSEMESTER) and November 1st-5th (November).

Returns

What is the return/exchange policy?

  1. Because the majority of curriculum that is returned comes back damaged, we have very strict refund policies. We suggest you carefully check the many sample pages of the curriculum or download the free version (if available) before deciding if the curriculum is right for you.
  2. Downloaded materials may not be returned. If you purchased the physical item + download and return the physical item, you will be charged the full amount for the download. For example, if you purchased the Level K Course Set + Download, you will be charge $15 for the full price of the course set download before you are refunded.
  3. All returns and exchanges of physical product must be postmarked within 14 days of the date of receiving your package, and items must be returned in the original condition and still in the bags and shrink wrap it came in. The requirement for a quick return is because of logistics. We do not have the ability to check every page of all of the books to make sure they are not written in or have food spilled on them, etc., which is often the case when someone has the materials for more than a few days. Please use a sturdy box and plenty of bubble wrap when returning items. Do not use the original box that the materials came in as it cannot usually survive a return trip in good condition. Please be aware that Media Mail goes through extra sort facilities and often has a rough ride. Use Priority mail for the best possibility of your materials arriving to us undamaged. The majority of the curriculum we receive back is damaged and cannot be refunded.
  4. If items arrive back damaged but in good enough shape for us to sell at scratch and dent at our conventions, you will be refunded 40%.
  5. If items arrive back to us completely undamaged, you will be refunded in the form you made the original payment in the amount of your purchase minus shipping charges and minus a 5% restocking fee. You must pay the shipping costs for materials to be returned, unless the return is being made because of our mistake. Please ship returns to the following address:
