Below are Terms for the Program. These Terms are between Subscriber and S&S Worldwide and govern our respective rights and obligations. The Terms, together with applicable terms and conditions related to any promotional offers provided to the Subscriber for use with the Program, constitute the entire agreement between the Subscriber and S&S Worldwide in relation to the Program. In order to subscribe, the Subscriber and Facility must be located within the 48 contiguous United States. If you sign up for the Program, you accept these terms, conditions, limitations and requirements. Please read these Terms carefully.
The Subscriber and Facility are entitled to the following benefits: free standard shipping on items that are stocked by and originate from the S&S Worldwide warehouse and are shipping to an address within the 48 contiguous United States; free return shipping for authorized returns; access to a dedicated customer service team via email, phone, and live chat when available; fifty percent discount on expedited shipping options; ten percent discount off of published S&S Worldwide List prices; free access to grant search tools provided by The School Funding Center (accessed via your S&S Online Account); free access to other tools and resources as provided within your S&S Plus page within your S&S Worldwide Online Account.
Availability of shipping benefits depends on inventory availability, order deadlines, and in some cases the shipping address.
Program benefits are limited to certain products sold by S&S Worldwide. When shopping online at ssww.com, we'll indicate which items are eligible for Program benefits.

If only some items in your order are eligible for Program benefits, you will pay applicable shipping charges for the ineligible items. Certain purchases may only be entitled to Standard Shipping because of their size, weight, and other shipping characteristics.
We may also exclude products with special shipping characteristics at our discretion. Please refer to The S&S Plus section of our online Help pages for information about eligible items, shipping cost, shipping speed, and shipping destinations.
