USPS Priority Mail Changes

Has anyone else noticed that it now says Priority mail 1,2, or 3 day now depending on where you send the package to? Just another way for them to save a buck i.e. raise prices I guess. That will keep me from shipping on Wednesdays a lot of times now.

Priority cross country still says 1-2 days. They do not promise that amount of time and never have.

Right, but if you print labels from Paypal it will actually say Priority Mail 1 day, Priority Mail 2 day, or Priority Mail 3 Day.


It used to just say 1-2 days.

sounds like they are being better then. If it used to be 1-2 but they didn't have to do it in 1-2 and now they give you a better idea of how long it will take.

Um, the tracking info now also shows 'delivery date'. The problem is that 3 out of 5 packages I shipped this Monday arrived a day late.

Sort of funny and sad to see:
Delivery date: Sept 5
Out for delivery: Sept 6
