    Rant!

    I am getting really annoyed with companies that send you an email with a notice that your item has shipped with a tracking number that is no good because it was generated by the seller with their shipping company's software to print labels, but the shipping company doesn't even know about it until they actually pick up the package and scan it into their tracking system.
    3 orders now placed yesterday, tracking numbers that are invalid.
    I WISH they would wait until the package is ACTUALLY in the shipper's possession before sending me the tracking number!

    All I get is "Shipping Label Created".
    Another one I get.
    "Pre-Shipment Info Sent to USPS"
    AND ANOTHER ONE!
    "The Postal Service could not locate the tracking information for your request. Please verify your tracking number and try again later."

    I print my own labels for eBay and other mail - THEN I head to the USPS!
    Fast shipping is NOT printing label and sitting on the package and being a frequent shipper i know when i'm being played!

    That would not be as efficient for the shipper. Remember the days when you could not get a tracking number? Personally when I get those emails I know not to look for at least 24 hours unless it is USPS then I give it 48 hours. Adapt and overcome.

    Your order will ship on ******, this means they will put it in a box and mark it ready to ship

    The company that is actually going to move your order from the warehouse to your door step will get it in about 3 days.

    Then you will get it "next day" like you were charged.



    I agree

    One item was USPS 3-Day Priority (but only 2 DAYS from where it is shipping)
    So if it was ACTUALLY given to the Post Office yesterday, I would get it Friday.
    NOOOOOOOO!!!!
    MONDAY delivery!
    And I won't say who is sending it, don't want to bash anyone.

    SEE? Right there!
    mingaa and I sometimes send stuff to each other.
    I get the tracking number from him and it is already in the system, not sitting on his desk.
    I send stuff to mingaa, I go to the Post Office, pay for Priority and get the Tracking Number on the receipt.
    Then I go home and give him the TN by PM.
    It is already in the system, but might take few hours to register.

    Hmmmm? Getting an idea here.
    One place I order from is not *too* far from mingaa.
    Maybe the next time I order from them I tell them "Store Pickup", "Will Call", or whatever they call it.
    Then mingaa picks it up and I pay him to send it by USPS.
    Jus' thinkin'.

    I was wearing my contact lenses without my reading glasses when I read your thread title, thought it said "Runt!." Saw it was in the lounge and wondered if you got a new puppy.

    Sorry, I'll go and get my reading glasses now.

    Same name - same family BUT the big web outfit visit is a good bit farther than the store front operation where I shop when outy that way.

    dropped my wife at the airport this AM and picked up a lb each of Bullseye and AR Comp - $21.99 ea. + tax. Works for me!
