Why can't I see my entire Order History?

Am I able to send my order to a Military address?

Yes, we support military addresses.  APO stands for Army Post Office and FPO stands for Fleet Post Office. The first line determines how it will be routed.  You should enter either APO or FPO in the first address line, and AA, AE, or AP in the second address line, and then the corresponding state. If it's AA you should choose FL as the state, because it goes through Miami.  For AP, you would select CA as the state because it goes through San Francisco. For AE, you would select NY as the state because it goes through New York.

Why aren't there any items in my shopping cart?

Speed TV stores cookies on your computer to help us keep track of which products you have placed in your shopping cart.  Many web browsers today are installed with very tight security settings by default, and do not allow the storage of cookies.  If this is the case, the settings need to be modified on your web browser to allow cookies.  If this is still not fixing the problem, you might want to check and see if your computer is running an anti-virus or spyware program.  Oftentimes, these programs will partner with your web browser and disallow cookies as well.  Most browsers offer a "prompt" option for cookies, which still allows you to maintain control over what cookies/content are downloaded to your computer.

What is a promotion code?

Promotion codes are codes that when entered in the order process provide a discount in some form. Generally, they are only applied to the product, not shipping or taxes, unless otherwise specifically noted.


Where can I find a promotion code?

If you join our e-mail list , which we do not share with other companies, you are then a member of our VIP club. You can learn more about being a VIP member here.   Additionally, in the e-mails you receive from us there may be promotion codes for various products.


How do I apply a promotion code?

During the checkout process there are several opportunities to apply a promotion code. Just enter the promotion code in the Promotion Code box. The promotion codes are not case sensitive.


Can I use more than one promotion code?

Yes. However, the promotion codes will not be stacked; you will only receive the best of the applied promotion codes. For example, if you have two 25% off promotion codes and apply both, you will receive a 25% discount, not 50%. If you have several items in your order and apply the VIP 10% promotion code to those items and then apply another promotion code that gives you 25% off one of those items in your cart, you will receive 25% off that particular item and 10% off the remaining items.
