Logging into an existing account saves input time upon checkout. Setting up an account facilitates this order, email notifications (e.g. package tracking, inquiries, receipts, etc.). And we promise that we do not bombard you with emails. At this stage we only email people when we have a new bag being introduced which is only periodically. We just introduced a quarterly newsletter. Issue 1 was released December 3.
Express checkout allows you to check out without establishing an account. But you will not receive certain benefits of account status such as key notifications, etc.
If you intend to use a work email address, setting up an account will give you the ability to track packages, etc. on our website. This helps you in case your organization's firewall stops our confirmation emails. You can also put hdsmedallion on your safe senders list.
