Speaking of mail, UPS ( not usps ) will let you track your shipment on a map. It's pretty cool.
As for USPS, I've had informed delivery for years, and I love it
The new feature Paul speaks of is really cool too.
I get so spoiled using USPS priority or either ordering from Amazon, the packages either get to where they're going in 2 days or are delivered to me in 2 days.
I get so frustrated when ordering from Sierra Trading Post or the like and not only do they charge more for shipping than what USPS priority would cost, but they use the slowest service in the world, and that's FedEx Smartpost......
I actually called Sierra after waiting 11 days for a coat to arrive, although I knew the coat would be to me in a couple more days, I just wanted to see what Sierra would say when I told them that literally anything I order anymore gets to me within 3 days, and to ask why they still use FedEx Smartpost- while even charging more than what priority would cost, I asked them why not just use usps priority? Lol, I should've known better, that poor old salesperson could've cared less about my suggestion or my frustration with the order.
