Interesting. I'm in the LA area and basically never receive my Amazon packages via USPS. It's always ups, FedEx, or Amazon's contracted drivers.I'd say over half of my smaller Amazon Prime things come via USPS. Most of Sunday deliveries are USPS too. Some start out FedEx or UPS, but once at the Los Angeles hub they hand off to USPS. I suspect FedEx and UPS do the air portion, but then move to USPS when nearby for small items.
My issue with USPS is that different mail carriers sometimes drop things at the wrong house. However, their tracking number gets posted quickly, often <3-4 minutes, so I know something should be here. If it isn't I can run them down in their route and ask "Shows delivered at mailbox, but I don't see it" and they backtrack and find it. If it happens with the big guys, they are gone and package may be gone too if they drop it elsewhere. They get the number right, but have issues with street endings like Place, Street, Avenue, Blvd, Circle, Drive, Etc.
None of them stick around long enough to sign for the item now. They may ask for your name while standing 10 feet away and then run. Probablv covid directions.
£110. I’d been tracking the 512GB version for some time and that was reduced too but I opted for a bit more storage to reduce the number of devices I use. I guess the salesman won but I’ll keep telling myself I won a little bit too.What was the final price?
I got one of those tiny ones, but from Samsung.
512GB only, I was too stingy for the larger ones.
Oh no they do use USPS mostly he in our area. We get daily deliveries from Amazon, mostly USPS.Genuine question: Does Amazon even use USPS for shipments? I thought they used a mix of UPS / FedEx / their own shipping to get from warehouse to delivery point and then an Amazon driver finishes the delivery. Have they changed something recently?
