Super-Fast Shipping
Most orders ship within 24 hours; in-stock orders placed before noon actually ship the same day you place them! There is one exception: During the Back-to-School rush, orders may be delayed up to a week simply because of the high volume of packages going through the warehouse. Every effort is made to get orders shipped fast, but August does get crazy-busy.
60-Day Return Policy
We have one of the longest return policies in the industry, yet there is no return authorization needed and there are no rigorous questions asked. Fill out a simple form and send the item back in new condition to receive a complete refund.
Discounted Prices
Virtually all of the products we carry are offered to you at discounted prices.
Low Flat Rate (or Free) Shipping
You'll be thrilled with our Low Flat Rate Shipping on any size prepaid order! This exciting offer applies to orders shipped to the lower 48 contiguous states! Since we choose the shipping method, we will need your physical address and postal address (if different). Most orders ship within 24 hours, and will arrive within 7-10 shipping days depending on your location (excludes weekends and holidays).

We also offer Free Ground Shipping on orders that include any of these items:
  • Teaching Textbooks Complete Package
  • Rosetta Stone Language Program
  • Timberdoodle Complete Curriculum Kits
    Include any of those products and we will ship it free to an address in the lower 48 contiguous states!

    Flat Rate or Free Shipping applies to Ground Shipping only, and excludes orders shipped to Alaska, Hawaii, military, and foreign addresses. Do you need your order a little faster? Choose Upgraded Shipping and your order will arrive in 3-5 business days! All other shipping methods are weight-based for the best possible accuracy.

  • 120-Day, 120% Price Guarantee
    Buy today knowing that you are getting the lowest possible price. If something you purchase from us goes on sale at Timberdoodle within 120 days after your purchase date, we will refund you 120% of the price difference. This means if you purchase a $100 item and three months later that same item goes on sale for $85, we will refund you the difference in price plus 20% -- $18! Just contact us and we will be glad to get your refund on the way.
    The fine print:
    This offer applies to our regular inventory, but excludes closeout, damaged, free or manufacturer-controlled items. (Manufacturer-controlled items refers to items such as Youth Digital, Rosetta Stone, or Sphero, since they strictly control their sale pricing and only allow sale pricing on certain dates.) To be eligible you must have purchased that exact item from us within the past 120 days and you must request the refund during our sale. While most refunds are issued within 24 hours, it can take up to a week to process. (We occasionally get a question about price-matching. We do not offer that; instead we want to be sure you always get Timberdoodle's lowest price.)
    Over 20 Years of Reliable Service
    Timberdoodle began in 1985 and now serves second-generation Timberdoodle customers!
    Hand-Selected Items
    We spend a ton of time each month sifting through myriads of products and selecting the top candidates. We then ask ourselves whether the product actually does what it says it does. If so, does it do it as effortlessly as possible? As a conservative Christian family, does anything about it offend us? Is it of sufficient quality for active home school families? Finally, we look at it from the perspective of a single-income family on a tight budget and ask ourselves if it is really worth the money. If it passes this process we'll consider offering it for your use.
    Family-Owned and -Operated
    What began as a back porch venture has now grown to include two warehouses and an office, and the children have grown to become customer service reps, web technicians, warehouse workers, order processors, and more. Timberdoodle is still run by the original owners, the Deffinbaughs; they and four of their grown children form the backbone of the work crew.
    Here to Help You
    The bottom line is that we want people to home school, and we will do whatever we can to help them succeed at that! Also, we know that every product is not for every family. While we make a huge effort to reflect that in our write-ups, we are available by phone or email if you have questions or want to know if a particular product will work for you. Call us at 800-478-0672 or email mailbag@timberdoodle.com
