OK, FedEx really brings shipping to a surprisingly high level every once in a while. Ordered from the Barney's sale, chose the free ground shipping. Item shipped last Friday, supposed to be here this Friday (East coast to West coast) - cool. Just checked the tracking and the item got to my area early, so what did FedEx do? Did they choose to sit on it like UPS for 3 extra days? Nope - they threw it on a delivery truck for delivery 3 days early. So awesome.
