Death Wish Coffee and the Armed Forces

Fueling Our Armed Forces, First Responders and Service Workers 

First and foremost, from all of us here at Death Wish Coffee, we would like to sincerely say thank you for your service. Service members and veterans alike, first responders, government employees and teachers all deserve a strong brew. We receive inquiries every day regarding orders heading to members of our Armed Forces, in particular. Here are some of those most frequently asked questions answered for you. 

Do you offer a coffee discount for military, first responders and teachers? 

While we can't hook everyone up as much as we'd like to, we do offer a 15% discount to all of you proudly serving our country in very important ways. All you have to do is verify your issued ID during checkout to receive an automatic discount at checkout. We verify these IDs through GovX ID. 

GovX ID in 3 Easy Steps: 

  1. After you add your items to checkout, view your cart and select the GovX ID option.
  2. Create a GovX ID account and follow the steps through the verification process. You will need access to your ID.
  3. A discount code will be given to you upon verification for use at checkout.

 

Can you ship to an APO/FPO address? 

We ship to APO/FPO addresses with no additional costs! When entering your shipping address, be sure to include the unit, hull and/or box numbers for APO/FPO shipping addresses (if assigned). To prevent mail from entering any foreign mail networks, do not include city or country names in APO/FPO shipping addresses. 

Follow these guidelines for a safe and sound delivery: 

  • The city is entered as either "APO" or "FPO." 
  • In the state drop-down menu, select the suitable option of Armed Forces Americas (AA), Armed Forces Europe (AE) or Armed Forces Pacific (AP). 
  • The country must be United States. 
  • You must enter your zip code. 
  • Always remember to enter your full name, grade and PSC or unit number.

* Note: Remember to enter the correct billing address associated with your card if it is different from the shipping address. If you are shipping a package to someone other than yourself, be sure to enter your email address to receive all summary information, but also enter the recipient’s name and shipping information. 

Do you charge additional fees to ship to APO/FPOs? 

We proudly ship to Armed Forces addresses and will not charge any shipping fees in addition to our regular rates to make it happen. All charges coming directly from us here at Death Wish Coffee are reflected in the total at the point of sale.  

How long will it take for my package to reach my Military Post Office? 

Department of Defense shipping times will vary based on your APO or FPO address. All orders from our site ship directly with the USPS Priority Mail.  Check out these time frames for a general idea of delivery times:
