Katherine Beck specializes in creating bid day gifts filled with the most stylish and one of a kind items that we spend months searching for in order to have the best variety possible! We are always designing new sorority merchandise based on the most popular trends as well as timeless traditions to ensure your daughter receives the greatest quality around. You can’t go wrong with a gift from Katherine Beck!
On Bid Day, once the girls receive their “bids”, we will receive a “Bid List” from each sorority. WE ARE NOT AWARE OF WHICH SORORITY THE GIRLS WILL BE PLEDGING UNTIL AFTER THEY HAVE RECEIVED THEIR BIDS. It is possible that some sororities will send their list earlier or later than others.
Once we receive the first list we will then start to go through our orders to determine which sorority each girl received a bid from. If a sorority takes longer to send out their list, it may delay that sorority’s first round of Bid Day deliveries.
Other than a $5 delivery fee, the amount of your Bid Day gift is completely up to you. On average, most Bid Day orders are average $350-$500. However, we get orders as little as $25 and over $800. This is what makes Katherine Beck unique, it is completely up to YOU how much you spend! We hand pull items on bid day for each price point, so each gift is completely different! We do not make pre-made gifts, each and every order is special and unique!
Because we do not pull the items until the day of, we are unable to take requests or suggestions for specific items. We want each and every girl to get something they feel is “special” and “unique” so not every girl gets the same bid day gift! You will NOT be charged until the bid day gifts are pulled!
However, if she receives any items in her gift that she would like to exchange, she is more than welcome to do so. Exchanges begin October 8th following Bid day and end October 22nd. All Greek merchandise must be exchanged for other Greek merchandise. If we are out of a particular item that she is wanting, we will be more than happy to write her information down and let her know IF that item becomes available again. There is NO guarantee that any particular item will be reordered by the store.
If she chooses to receive a “Greek Credit” for any of the items that she returns, her store credit will be valid through December 20th, 2018.
You will NOT be charged for your Bid Day gift until we have filled the order on Bid Day night/ the following morning.
Since no one is allowed to receive the Bid List until AFTER the girls have received their bids, the gift will NOT be there when the girls run to their new house. We will be making several rounds of deliveries all throughout the night until we are no longer allowed in the sorority houses. Every year this time changes for each sorority. If we are unable to deliver the gift on Bid Day night, it will be delivered the following day. We have no control over when each individual house closes for the night, some may allow deliveries later than others!
You will be able to edit your order ONE time without affecting your place in line. If you wish to make any additional changes after your one edit, your order will be moved to the day in which you made your additional changes. If you are wishing to add to the gift and you have already used your allotted pull, you are welcome to place an additional order at no extra delivery cost. If you do choose to place an additional order, please let us know so we can try our best to ensure that she does not receive any duplicate items and/or combine the order with her initial gift.
To ensure that your order is delivered without any delays, please give us a call if the payment information you provided with your initial order has changed. This will not count as your one time pull.
Bid Day gifts will be delivered to the sorority houses. Due to the large number of gifts and the different schedules/events for each sorority, this is the safest location for us to leave the gifts. Since each sorority is different and some will have their Bid Day celebrations at off-site locations, we will leave the gifts in an area of the house that that sorority has designated.
Due to the amount of orders we have to fill and the time that we have to fill them, we will NOT notify the girls that they have a gift at their sorority house. We recommend that you let them know that you have sent a gift. There are hundreds of gifts at each house so it is very easy for a girl to not notice her gift if she is unaware that one was sent to her.
Once the gifts are delivered and signed for at the sorority houses, they are out of our hands! Unfortunately, we are NOT able to go back inside to search and locate gifts once they have been delivered!
