    Is USPS getting better?

    I've never seen a window this precise. Usually, it shows "... before 8:00 P.M." or something similar.

    When did they start using 2 hour windows?

    Never seen that with any packages recently, but I will say in my case USPS has gotten worse. I'd say 25-50% of the time the delivery date is wrong and I end up getting the package a day or two later. A year ago I would never have this issue, sometimes I would get packages early.

    Ive always thought that USPS was pretty great. Ive used them to ship packages for years and IMO they offer a better value with equal service and just as fast, if not faster shipping time than UPS or Fed Ex.

    I didn't mean to imply that they were bad. Just looked like a huge step up from previous shipments.

    Taken over by Amazon? Amazon delivers a lot of their own packages now in some major markets. USPS still delivers many as well. The 2 hour window thing must be new. Im glad Im retired.

    Got an example of a tracking number or 2? Id say 25-50 % of the time is quite the problem. Id say 5% or less for most is the norm for regular Priority Mail.

    Amazon rolled out the 'Next Day Prime' or whatever it was called. I order a gaming headset and it said "to be delivered Next Day" Well, good ol' USPS got their hands on it and it finally showed up on Tuesday... So 'Next Day Prime' ended up worse than the normal 2 day shipping...

    A definite screw up on this one. I had a Ping hat arrive a day late this week but most have been on time. Ive got an electric push cart coming today Fedex Ground. That guy shows up at all kinds of hours from 10-10 and sometimes has a problem seeing one of the three addresses on my house. I hope he is early and accurate.

    I avoid the post office if at all possible but the two times I was there to ship a package in the last year, the service was as slow and workers as apathetic as ever. They lost $4B last year when the income for UPS and FedEX went up 10%. They should have been privatized 40 years ago but since that would be a decision for Congress, don’t hold your breath.

    I see all sorts of complaints about the USPS, and I guess I am lucky because I have overwhelming positive experiences with them. I rarely have anything arive late or damaged. In the past their tracking has been WAY behind the competition but it seems to be catching up. The new informed delivery is awesome.

    I have to ship out 1000 packages every Christmas, and deal directly with the local postmaster and employees to get it done, and have found them to be very helpful ND professional.

    My USPS is terrible. I get other people's mail all the time and they get mine. It happens at least once a week.
