Your credit card or PayPal account will be authorized for the entire amount of the order at the time of purchase. The card or PayPal account will then be charged when the order is shipped. We will send you an email confirmation of your order once you have completed the order.

10. My credit card was declined, but the charge is showing on my credit card account. What happened?

The "charges" that are appearing on your card account are pre-authorization holds. They are not charges; however, your card company may be temporarily holding those funds. Your card may have declined for one of the following reasons:

  1. Your BILLING address entered does not exactly match the BILLING address that your card company has on file.
  2. Your card company is declining your transaction because of insufficient funds or another reason from your card company.

Please contact your card company to release any pending holds from Chico's Off The Rack if you received an ERROR response that matches any of the reasons above. Chico's Off The Rack has no control of the grace period for releasing authorized funds, particularly debit card funds.

11. When will my order be processed?

If your order fits all authorization criteria, then all orders placed Monday-Friday before 2pm EST ship out the same business day, pending any unexpected delays. Orders placed on weekends and holidays will be processed and shipped on the next business day. If an item is on backorder, the item will ship out once it passes our quality control process.

12. I can't find the item I'm looking for. How can I search for it?

You can either enter the 9-digit Item number from your catalog into the search box at the top-right of the screen, or you can click on the Search link to find products by Keyword, Color and Size.

13. How do I use a coupon or discount code?

You will have the opportunity to enter in your discount code during Step One of the Checkout process.

The Passport Program is the Chico’s and Chico’s Off The Rack customer loyalty program. Passport is open to U.S. and International residents, excluding Canadian residents. International residents are not able to shop on chicosofftherack.com at this time and will not receive Passport benefits on chicosofftherack.com, but are able to create a Passport account on this site. Unfortunately, Canadian residents are not eligible for the Passport Program. If you are a Canadian resident, you may create an online account, but you will not be enrolled in our loyalty program. There is no fee to join or maintain membership in the Passport program. You may sign up for Passport online, at any U.S. Chico’s Off The Rack boutique, or by phone at 1.855.300.7580 by providing your first and last name, valid mailing address, phone number, email address and birth month. To receive your full benefits please provide your qualifying membership number every time you shop at Chicos.com, chicosofftherack.com, Chico’s Boutiques or Chico’s Outlet stores.

The Passport Program and Passport membership is governed by our Passport Program Terms and Conditions , which may be updated from time to time. To review our current program terms, click on the link above.

2. The website gave me a different Passport or Introductory Passport number, what do I do now?

The numbers should merge within 72 hours and your original number is the one that will remain active. Any purchasing you do on the temporary number will be transferred to your original account once merged. In the meantime, if this interferes with your discounts and benefits, just contact us at 1.855.300.7580 or   customerservice@chicosofftherack.com with your order information and we will make the adjustments for you. If you are a full Passport member (qualifying merchandise purchases reach $500) and your order does not reflect your member discounts, please contact us with your order information and we will make the adjustments for you.

3. Where do I input my Passport or Introductory Passport Number?

If you are new to the website but have already received a Passport or Introductory Passport number by shopping in our boutiques or by phone, there will be a field in the online Registration page where you can enter your Passport or Introductory Passport number. By doing so, it will help us locate you in our records and ensure that you receive your Passport benefits as you shop online.

If you are already a registered user on chicosofftherack.com and are logged-in to the site you will automatically receive your Passport benefits. In this case you will not need to enter your Passport or Introductory Passport number.

4. I am a Passport customer. Where will I see my 5% discount applied to my order?

If you are a Passport member (qualifying merchandise purchases reach $500), you will see all of your discounts, including your 5% Passport discount on merchandise, on Step 3 of the Checkout process.
