Good Stuff but whyyyyyyy does standard shipping have to be a punishment

"They come through on product selection! and pricing (most of the time)
But, if your not a millionaire and you choose standard shipping expect to receive your purchase in a week. I'm talking the lower 48 and in a crossroads big city where shipments usually arrive in 3-4 days from everywhere else.
Kinda feels like I'm getting punished.
Otherwise, these guys are great!!!
As long as I'm not in a hurry, this is where I buy all my optics!!!

OP Delivers Great Customer Service

"I purchase a lot of firearm related products online and the customer service at OpticsPlanet is right at the top of all suppliers. Add the competitive prices, timely delivery and broad range of choices I'll continue checking out OP before other sites. Thank you. "

Value Quickly

"Searched for a 20 gage Mossberg choke, OpticsPlanet had one at the best price and the next full day I had just what I ordered. I have ordered from them several times and learned to that from them . Thumbs up ! "

Hats Off to these folks

"Very smooth and pleasant experience. They had the lowest price anywhere on the spotting scope I had been researching. The order shipped out when they indicated it would, and the free shipping got it to me quickly. The scope came nicely double boxed and padded, so it arrived in great shape. I'll order here again. Thanks. "

Misleading shipping promises

"Ordered Argos Athalon scope and Burris extreme tactical scope rings. Items arrived in good condition however the order I placed on a Monday with garunteed two day shipping didn't arrive until Monday the next week.
Contacted customer support. They then told me it could take up to 48 hours to process the order before shipment. But then they contacted me again to say I should have put the 2 day air coupon code in manually even though it showed it was applied throughout the whole order process.

"order these on Labor day, got them on sale, used a discount coupon, and got free shipping. So I was very pleased with the price, but on top of that I got them in mail that Friday so I was very shocked. 5 STARS all the way. "

Miss Green...Flash: Amazing Customer Service!!! 10 Stars!

"FIVE STARS! I called Optic Planet customer service, & had a very sweet, cool girl help me (Miss Green). This was by far, one of thee best, most pleasurable phone purchasing experiences I've ever had. I was able to place an order for a Magpul MOE grip, which arrived within a week. This transaction couldn't have been any more perfect! Factor in Miss Green, & they have a customer for life!

Thank you!
