Sorority Recruitment and Bid Day are some of the most exciting times in every girl's life. We know this year things will look different, but we are still here to help you make sure it’s an experience she will never forget! Our Bid Day Bundles include our top selling goodies & gear. We have several bundle options at various price levels & all you have to do is head over to our Bid Day Bundles page to pre-order.

Greek & Unique is one of the largest Sorority boutiques in the country, specializing in all things Greek for 19 Panhellenic chapters. We want to be there for you for Bid Day, Big/Little Reveal, all customized items, birthdays, and Initiation. We offer delivery to a list of University of Texas private dorms, curbside pick-up and shipping nationwide year round.

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, things will look a bit different on our end. To ensure the safety of our staff as well as our customers, our store front will be closed to customers August 1st - September 7th. This means that any items you would like for Bid Day must be ordered online or over the phone and will be filled based on order date. There are no returns on sorority items - only exchanges or store credit will be given. You may cancel a pre-order before the order is filled for a full refund.

We are currently accepting PRE-ORDERS for our Bid Day Bundles that we begin delivering on Bid Day, in chronological order. Our Bid Day packages offer boutique-style, on trend, licensed products ranging from $55-$525. Below are some answers to some of our most common questions; however, if we forgot something or you still have some questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us at orders@greekandunique.net, call us at 512.206.0011, or text us at 512.640.2376.

What is a Bid Day Package?
Bid Day Gifts are a special surprise sent to any girl who is participating in Recruitment. For our Austin customers, Bid Day packages will be delivered to her dorm or available for curbside pick-up at our store near campus. For any other U.S. customers, we can ship her bundle to her on campus! Orders are filled based on order date, so order early.

How do I order a Bid Day Package?
All orders can be placed online. You can find the Bid Day Bundle options under our Bid Day tab. It will ask you a number of questions about sizes, recipient's cell number for delivery notification, dorm delivery options, gift
message, etc.

Can I customize my own Bid Day Package?
We do not offer custom ordering for any pre-orders. We have created 7 bundle packages with our top selling items and you have the option to add a gift certificate or plush blanket to any bundle. Your daughter can exchange any items from her bundle within 30 days. If you want to build your own bundle or select a la carte items, you can order after your daughter receives her bid. Please keep in mind that all orders are filled by order date, so we encourage you to pre-order so we can fill and deliver your order quickly and to ensure we have the items you order in stock.

When should I order?
Order now! The sooner the better for sure. We will fill baskets on a first come, first served basis, so if you want to ensure your Bid Day Package comes with everything of her dreams, it's best you order now, so we can give it the utmost attention on Bid Day! But don't worry, if we run out of any item, we will replace it with an equally amazing gift of equal or greater value! We deliver gifts in the order they were placed.

How do I let you know which Sorority she joined?

As soon as your sorority girl gets her bid, we need to hear from you! We will be touching base with you via email and text before Bid Day with a reminder. This year Bid Day is on Monday, August 24th—once you hear the news, please call us at 512.206.0011, text us at 512-640-2376, or email us at orders@greekandunique.net and leave us a message/email us with the following information:

*Name of who placed the order (this is how we locate your order)
*The recipient's name (if you have ordered multiple gifts, make sure to give us each name & sorority)
*Full name of the Sorority (ex. Kappa Alpha Theta)
We cannot fill your order without your contacting us, so save our phone number/email in your phone now so you can easily contact us.

Delivery options for the University of Texas?
We deliver to private dorms at UT, Callaway, Hardin House, Castilian, SRD, and a few apartments (2400 Nueces, Ruckus, Ruckus 2.0, Moon Tower & Skyloft), but we are not allowed to deliver to dorms that are part of UT Housing. This year, we will not be able to make deliveries to sorority houses. If your daughters doesnt live in one of the dorms or apartments listed, we offer curbside pick-up at our store or you can ship it to her on campus.Please check that option with your bundle and enter that info in the checkout process.

My gift is for another school other than UT?
We ship gift packages around the country every day! You will still want to pre-order if possible and call us when you know her Sorority. (We can fill your order quickly after you call us because the paperwork is already completed.) Pick out your bundles, add your gift message, complete the shipping information at checkout, make sure to say it is a gift in your notes, and we will handle it from there. You can also order your package to be picked up from our store, but please do not come pick up until you hear from us that it is ready.

What if my daughter is a legacy?

If your daughter is a legacy and she goes to Pref Day for the sorority she is a legacy for AND she prefs that sorority as #1, please call us and we will fill her order and not wait until Bid Day. If you have any concerns that she might not choose that sorority as her first choice, please wait until you hear from her on Bid Day and then call us.

What is our return policy?
Sorority items will be accepted within 30 days of delivery/shipment for an exchange or store credit only. Our store carries many unique gift items, game day jewelry, game day bags, and more, so there are LOTS of great items she can buy if she receives a store credit. (We issue full credits for pre-orders if we do not deliver or ship your items.)

What if my daughter doesn't get a bid?
We understand, sometimes, it just doesn't work out. We offer full refunds, no questions asked on all pre-orders that were not filled. So if you need to completely cancel your order, just call or email us to let us know and we will credit your card. We also have a number of game day and other fun college gift items that we can deliver to your daughter if you choose to deliver something else to your daughter.
