Angry Thanks for nothing USPS...

[rant]
Yeah, I didn't need the A-main order from a week and a half ago...
Still have no idea where it is, but this is sad.

If the holidays matter, use UPS or FedEx
[/end rant]

Heck my HobbyKing order made it here first...

(Now back to your regularly scheduled thread.)

Yup seen it over and over again... USPS can be ultra fast here or Very very slow.
Its amazing that such a large company has such outdated tracking information.

First of all you should probably be blaming A-main. I won't deal with them ever again. Ground mail is only 2-3 from me to A-main and I opted for the priorty which should have made it 2 days max. Well A-main didn't process the order for like 5 days so no point in the proirty shipping.

Sorry to hear that your having shipping issues. I am sure either UPS or Amain had a screw up in your order. It will get resolved. Good Luck with it.

wow..

usps is 100 times better than ups.
ups will lose your package, smash your package, or take 2 weeks to cross a stateline and blame it on the weather.
and make you feel like an ass for calling them about it.

i hate ups.

Wow, I just got my order in from A-main today (thurs) I ordered it last saturday and chose ups 3 day select cause it was discounted to $2.61 for shipping. From Cali to NJ in 3 days doesn't seem slow to me. I've never had bad luck with Amain, and I've used both UPS and USPS, never an issue.
