    My thoughts exactly. I try not to give them a reason to screw with my shipments.

    Does anyone know if the post office will still be open on Saturdays for mailing out stuff? (EDIT - I looked it up and they do plan to stay open, only for a shorter time.)

    Thanks Bryce. Decided to check it out myself looks like the details are

    Package Delivery is 6days/week
    Mail Delivery is 5days/week
    PO remains open 6days/week

    That's actually quite perfect.

    Thanks for the clarification. There goes my rant about getting to the P.O. on Saturdays. :D

    Man! Those videos are messed up!
    here's one I found on the USPS:


    skip to 0:30

    maybe not as bad but it seems like we're screwed regardless of who we ship with.
    I'm still not a fan of no mail on Sat..

    USPS now does delivery confirmation automatically on all Priority Mail boxes and sticks the label directly on the box (instead of using a separate form). Maybe this isn't news to most of you, but it happened in the last month or so.

    Just thought that was a pretty smart development. Hopefully they save some money by eliminating those forms.

    ^ what's even better is their online label tool -- no lines, cheaper rates, and free tracking included! granted, only for priority or higher... but still.
