02. Is your price for a box of ammo or a case of ammo?

The ammo prices shown are “per box” unless otherwise indicated in the description. We indicate how many boxes you will need to order for those who prefer to order only case quantities. In most cases, there are no discounts for case quantities, so order just as much as you need. In some instances, we sell only in bricks or cases of ammo. These products will be clearly marked as being a larger quantity. Back to Top

06. Can I save my credit card for future orders?

Yes. Simply check the "save this credit card" box during checkout, and the next time you order you will be able to select the saved card from a drop-down menu instead of typing in the information again.

When you save your credit card information to your Cheaper Than Dirt! account for future purchases and a quicker checkout, our site only stores the bank-level secure token provided from our payment processor. When you purchase an item, your purchase is sent securely with your token back to our processor to complete the transaction.

A token is a randomized series of digits created by the payment processor when credit card or similar form of payment is received. This token cannot be translated back into its original information by anyone except the payment processor. This is a more secure way to purchase online! To further secure payment information, each token created for this site is only associated with this site—a token cannot be used to make a purchase through another retailer.
