USPS "estimated delivery date" = what a joke



I don't know if anyone else has had this happening lately. USPS states an estimated delivery date that's totally off... TOTALLY!!

Case in point, I'm waiting for my continuity shipment. In the online tracking page it says it would be delivered on the 14th. Well, my package departed some sorting facility on the 16th... no other updates, and its June 21st. It's just ridiculous.

End of rant...

Annoying!! In contrast, UPS tracking is right on it.

I sent a stability ball to a friend recently priority. $8.75. Used tracking. They said they tried to leave it at the house and couldn't and left a message to pick it up at the p.o. My friend didn't get it and when she went to the p.o. they had no record of it. Mind you, this was in the first of May. It was returned to me two days ago as never claimed. The address on it was 100% correct. I'm about to use UPS for everything outside of letters and/or DVD trades for sure. Sorry for your frustration.

I have the opposite experience. USPS is excellent here but UPS sucks. UPS will actually update the tracking saying a package has been delivered when it actually doesn't get delivered until the end of the next day! I also find UPS very slow around here.

It's weird. For example, the Drop 2 Sizes set got to me in 5 business days via USPS but other said it took a full 10.

usps tracking used to be updated as the item traveled, but not of late. the usps site was down for about an hour yesterday too.

i hope they fix it. it used to be ok for me.
