    Anybody having trouble with USPS tracking system?
    I'm tracking down a package that was shipped to me last week. It says that expected delivery date is tomorrow, the 18th. Yet, it says it's been delivered but at a completely different address in a different state.

    How can it be delivered, if it's expected delivery date is tomorrow? Is it possible the shipper sent it to the wrong address, or sent me the wrong tracking number? Or could it just be the tracking system?
    I've never experienced this one before..............................confused!

    Well problem number 1 is that it's USPS and they actually told me at the post office that the most tracking they ever do is "if they feel like it" even if it's on something that was paid for overnight. Not to mention that I've never been able to track anything reliably with them.

    Best advice: Call the shipper and make sure they sent it to the right address.

    Well, 96% of the time I don't have trouble with it, 3% is just error, but this one is weird.
    We'll see what happens tomorrow on the expected delivery date.
    Will report when package is found.
    Yep, USPS tracking system does suck.

    I've been having a problem with them to.

    I ordered a figure off Amazon on saturday. Could not track it until late monday.

    Amazon claims it should arrive next wednesday.

    USPS site however claims it has a scheduled delivery date for tomorrow.

    Never really had this problem with them before.

    Either way fingers crossed.

    I used two-day shipping for two tpb they arrived a day early.

    Best of luck in your endeavour Tigertrack.

    My figure did come in today.

    So much for Amazon claiming the 24th.

    I've been having some trouble.

    It was fine yesterday.

    Even in the early hours around 1am.

    I just tried checking.

    It keeps saying usps.com is temporarily unavailable.

    This a day before my DCSH Superman is supposed to arrive.


    Update (3:23pm)


    My figure arrived a day earlier then expected.
