Auto Reorder Program
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
How does the 5% discount work?
The 5% discount is applied to your 2nd Auto Reorder once your second order has been shipped,
you will receive a confirmation email where you will see your discount applied. The 5% discount
is applied to every subsequent
order or as long as there is no break in your shipments. You can change interval
or frequency times and still get the 5% discount. Once you de-activate an order
from the Auto Reorder program, the order then becomes ineligible for the 5% discount.
You must then place the order on Auto Reorder again and wait until the 2nd shipment
to get the 5% discount.
How much is shipping on Auto Reorder?
All orders are shipped via No Charge Residential (FREE) ground shipping unless you change the
shipping option. This usually takes from 3-5 Business days for delivery (Business
days are days that don’t include the weekend days of Saturday or Sunday). If your
Auto Reorder is being shipped to Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico, your Auto Reorder
order will be charged the lowest rate available to those areas.
Can I change my Auto Reorder shipping to a faster method?
You can change your Auto Reorder to ship next day, 2nd day, or 3rd day guaranteed.
You can change the shipping method after an order is placed, by changing the shipping
method at the Manage Auto Reorder page. REMEMBER, once you change the shipping method,
all subsequent orders will be shipped and charged at that new rate unless you change
it back to No Charge Residential (FREE) ground shipping.
Can I apply a promotion code to an Auto Reorder?
You cannot apply a promotion code to an Auto Reorder. Remember you do receive a
5% discount by having the order on the Auto Reorder program (starting with your
2nd order). If you want to take advantage of a promotion code, you must place an additional
order outside the Auto Reorder program.REMEMBER, you will also receive your scheduled Auto
Reorder unless you Disable this order before the next shipment date. You can do
this and start the Auto Reorder program up again at a later time.
What happens if an Auto Reorder item is on backorder?
The backordered Auto Reorder item will be shipped as soon as it becomes available.
You will receive an email from us letting you know the shipping status. You can
modify or cancel your Auto Reorder order for a backordered item at any time before
we process the order.
Will backorders affect my Auto Reorder schedule?
When the backordered item is shipped, the shipping interval is applied to the new
date of shipment. So if an Auto Reorder is scheduled to ship every 15 days and the
back ordered item was shipped on January 12th, then the next shipment
will occur on January 27th.
What happens if an Auto Reorder item is discontinued?
If an item is discontinued, all Auto Reorders for that item will be automatically
cancelled and you will be notified. If you have other items in your Auto Reorder,
they will continue to be shipped on the schedule you specified when you set up the
initial Auto Reorder.
What if the price changes of the item I have on Auto Reorder?
If the price of an item is increased or reduced for any reason, or if the shipping
costs change, we will notify you by email of the price change. When you receive
the email, it will instruct you to verify your understanding of the price change.
You must click on the link in the email that takes you to the pricing acknowledgment
page, where you must agree to the change and your desire to continue with the Auto
How can I stop my Auto Reorder from further shipments?
You can stop your Auto Reorder shipments by going to either 1) the Auto Reorders List page and un-checking the Enable Auto Reorder box or 2) the Manage Auto Reorders page and un-checking the Enable Auto Reorder box. Be sure to see when your next order is scheduled to ship.
If you disable your Auto Reorder, but the date is passed from the Next Auto Reorder
Date, you may not be able to stop the next shipment. Please call Customer
Service at 1-800-NEOCATE (M-F, 8:30am to 8:00pm,

Can I change the frequency of when I receive my Auto Reorder?
Yes. To change the frequency of an Auto Reorder go to the Manage Auto Reorders page and select either Fixed Frequency or Specific Dates. If you choose Fixed Frequency enter the First Ship Date and Last Ship Date and then select the frequency interval from the pull down window. If you
change the shipment interval, your next shipment will be calculated from the shipment
of your last order. As an example, if your last
shipment date was January 12th and you change your frequency interval
to 10 days, your next shipment should indicate a date of January 22nd. If you choose Specific Dates, enter the dates you want your product shipped.
If I change the shipment frequency, how do I know when my next shipment
If you ever want to know when your next shipment will occur, you can always go to the Manage Auto Reorders page to see the order details and look at the Next Auto Reorder Date. This is when your next order will be shipped.REMEMBER, the shipment date is the date we ship your order. You will actually receive your order based on the shipping method you choose. If your order is ground shipped via No Charge Residential Ground (FREE), expect to receive your order 3-5 days business days (excluding weekend days) after the shipment date.
What if I receive an Auto Reorder shipment I don’t want?
If for some reason you receive delivery of an order from Auto Reorder that you did
not intend to receive, simply call our Customer Service Center at 1-800-NEOCATE
(M-F, 8:30am to 8:00pm, EST) to get a Return Merchandise Authorization

Shipping time depends upon the Shipping Method you’ve chosen (ground, next day, 3rd day). Please be aware that No Charge Residential (FREE) ground shipping can take 3-5 business days (not including weekends and holidays).
Receive date – this is the date you actually receive your order. We cannot guarantee a receive date unless you chose an expedited shipping method (next day, 2nd day,3rd day). We do not have control over how long ground shipping from our shipping carrier will take.
