    Default FedEx SMARTpost - NOT!

    My SmartPost experience:
    Left Hamilton, MO 11/21
    Arrived Kent, WA. 11/23 (Not BAD!)
    Scheduled delivery Puyallup, WA. (approx. ONE HOUR from Kent, WA.) 11/27?!?!

    Holding my breath.My last 2 orders were straight USPS and arrived in good time, so I ordered again yesterday, and you guessed it, Smartpost.

    sometimes i'm tempted to get a p.o. box in Kent, just for that reason. But having had to do alot of business in that p.o.office, I think it's quicker to wait the extra couple of days.

    Yup. I suppose it depends where we live I got excited when I saw my order of Nov 14 shipped a few days later. Amazing. And then my order of Nov 16 shipped one day later. Wow! So far the 2nd package has skipped the queue. First to Elk Grove, then Chicago. I know that flights through Chicago are always delayed. Waiting for both of them to cross the border to Toronto, and then delivery. No estimated date as they could be held in customs for a day. I am expecting in time for xmas, if I'm lucky.

    Package from Connecting Thread same time is almost here. Mostly delayed due to Canada post rotating strikes has caused a backlog of deliveries.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    The only thing Smart or Sure in those ways of sending packages is that it costs the company less (supposedly in shipping costs, but exactly how much has that cost M* is lost orders?) and irritates the heck out of people that have to wait an extra 4 or 5 days on their package.

    I don't order near as much from them since my parcels take an average of 10 days to reach me.

    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    EXACTLY!!! I doubt that they really save that much. Other online retailers (i.e. Fat Quarter Shop who sends any package straight USPS for $4.95) ship by priority mail and it is always here in 2 days. If they can do it, I have a hard time believing that M* can't. What they are "saving" in shipping costs is surely costing them in sales. Penny wise and dollar foolish if you me.

    Yes this is true. All my FQS orders come super fast and the shipping cost is the same as MSQC. They are packaged very nicely and always arrive in good shape. Between the slow shipping, and sloppy packaging, I am ordering less and less from MSQC.

    You can also send a PM with the information on your delayed packages to Bill Nye on these boards. Let them know about the extra time that it takes for delivery. I sent him a recent PM regarding a delay with my order and received a prompt reply.
