Stupid USPS—updates

Post by Charleneanne » Sat Aug 01, 2020 1:53 am

I want my order darnit.  I know there have been shipping delays with the post office during this virus.  My last order took 12 days for the post office to deliver after ACOT sent it to them.  But this time it has already been 22 days since the USPS got my order from ACOT.   And every day I check and nothing.  Still says went to post office on July 9 then nothing.    jeez     😤


Got a tracking text last night. My package finally left Saginaw post office and was in Detroit MI. Expected delivery date this Saturday August 8—— one day short of a full month since they picked it up from ACOT!!!!!

I have been having the same problem. I am reluctant to order from ACOT because of the delays at the post office that they send it to. I don’t have the problem ordering from other sites. I wish there was another way ACOT could ship that wouldn’t be too expensive or to another post office.

I also have had issues. The thing is, 2 weeks ago I placed an order, it came Fedex, and I got it 4 days after placing the order. From ordering to my door from ACOT. BUT, if it comes USPS, it takes weeks! I get things from AZ much faster! Seems odd the MI is the only state backed up at USPS??

Ugh! That is so annoying! I too have noticed anything coming from USPS via AOT is taking F.O.R.E.V.E.R! HOpe you get your goodies soon!

I sent an Envie that shipped from ACOT on July 9th and still nothing. It's sitting somewhere with USPS. I know it will move eventually but boy this is a long time.

I had the same thing happen with a recent order.  The order was dated as shipped on June 17th and I received it on July 6th after an inquiry.

Lately, no matter where I order from, USPS orders are ridiculously slow.  Really, really slow.  Doesn't matter if it's Amazon, ACOT, Walgreens, CVS -- it's really bad.  I have been paying extra for Fedex shipping when available (like here on ACOT) and that, so far, has been a DREAM!
I wish people came with a thirty second trailer so I can see what I'm getting myself into.

Yep, that’s my envie and it seems like on July 9th something happened. I just hope our packages didn’t end up in a trash bin. 😢

THE LAST TIME I ORDERED IT TOOK AWHILE ALSO BUT AFTER SOME INQUIRING FOUND OUT THAT THE OTHER PLACE THEY SEND IT TO (ALSO IN MI) HAD A COVID OUTBREAK SO THEY HAD TO SHUT THE PLACE DOWN & REROUTE ALL MAIL TO OTHER PLACES.... SO THAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM.... I FOUND THIS OUT FROM CHAD AT ACOT....

SO JUST AN FYI THAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM.....

I too had problems with packages that were shipped out on July 9th.  My envie that I bought shipped on the 9th and took over two weeks to get delivered.  It was like it was stuck in Saginaw.  My envie that oceanbreeze sent me also shipped on the 9th and took forever to get here.  So, there must have been a glitch with packages on the 9th.  Hope it gets better soon.    I had a package come from London and it took less time than USPS packages.  LOL.

Oh, and for me, it's not just packages . . . my mortgage payment took NINE days to reach Cincinnati from Cleveland.  It's only a 3.5 hour drive!

That is absolutely ridiculous!!  Don't get me started on all the Post Office issues I have had!  They put my orders on the front porch even when its pouring out!
If they backed up their vehicle about 3 foot, they can see my COVERED side porch, which is only a few feet away.  

Now that I think about it, Fed Ex used to put my orders in a plastic bag when in was raining.  They do not do that anymore.  But my regular driver puts everything on the side porch, no matter the weather.  The other day I must have had a different driver.  DH and I were sitting in the living room and heard a thud then a truck speed off.  We looked out the front door.  A Fed Ex driver threw a big box on the front steps, and the box was partially split open.  It was my order of dog food from Chewy, and their boxes are sturdy so the guy had to have hurled it and run.  Jerk!!!

that is ridiculous!!!  Mine goes to Texas.  One time after 2 weeks it had not arrived.  I called them first, nope they did not have it.  If they don't get it by the 16th, they add like a 54$ late fee!!  So I had to call the bank and put a stop payment on the check.  The next day the mortgage co.  called to say they had the check, it was left on someone's desk, who was on vacation.

I know.  Post office cannot seem to give tracking #'ss either.  Everytime I try, it says the information is unavailable.  At least with UOS and Fed Ex, their tracking is right on time!

We had someone deliver a box and set it right in front my garage door. Luckily it was on my daughters side of the garage. She seen it with her backup camera before she backed out.  :greenwaiting:

They know. Click on the red header at the top of ACOT and it answers/explains a lot of what is happening lately with postage in their area.
