Gilt Shipping and Tax
The following shipping and tax policies apply to domestic shipments only. For all international shipping information, click here.
The sales tax quoted at time of checkout is only an estimate. The final total sales tax will be reflected on your invoice and will include state and local taxes, as well as any applicable rebates or fees.
Gilt Groupe is currently obligated to collect sales tax in New York, Kentucky, and Nevada. Each state's tax laws specify what purchases are subject to sales tax.
No sales tax is charged when purchasing e-gift cards; however, purchases paid for with e-gift card credits may be subject to tax.
For services (spa treatments, club memberships, dining experiences) and tickets to events (concerts, shows) sales tax is generally charged based on where the service or event is held and not the billing or shipping address of the customer.
Important Sales Tax Information for Oklahoma, Vermont, and South Dakota Customers: Gilt Groupe, Inc. is not obligated to, and does not, collect Oklahoma, Vermont, or South Dakota sales tax. Your purchase is subject to Oklahoma, Vermont, and South Dakota sales tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. The purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet or by other remote means. The States of Oklahoma, Vermont, and South Dakota requires Oklahoma, Vermont, and South Dakota purchasers to report all purchases that were not taxed and pay tax on those purchases. The tax may be reported and paid on the individual income tax return or by filing a consumer use tax return.
If Overnight shipping is selected on an order placed before 3pm ET, the order will ship the same day; if the order is placed after 3pm ET, the order will ship the following day. If Overnight shipping is selected for an order placed on a Friday, please be advised that your package will not be delivered until Monday. Due to payment type and that company's approval procedures, there could be a delay in shipping your order if the billing information is inaccurate, if your billing and shipping addresses are different, or for any other reason that the payment company's approval process is triggered. Our goal is to process and ship your order within 2-5 business days of receipt. For items that are not yet at our warehouse, please allow 2-3 weeks for the item to be processed and shipped. A tracking number will be emailed to you when your order ships. This tracking number will allow you to check on the delivery status of your order.
Your default shipping address can be modified from your My Account page. If you have just placed an order, you will have a brief window of 5 minutes to change your shipping address by visiting your My Account page.

If you provide a shipping address that is not in one of these states, your order will not be placed.
