    I hate when companies use UPS exclusively. I mean USPS tracking does suck, I most miss the expected arrival date. But if Priority is being used, it is 2-3 days pretty much anywhere in the country. UPS does at least have next day for a huge portion of the East Coast though.

    And to whoever mentioned Century21, I think you mean Forever21.

    Oh and sorry for not responding ARW, I was going to PM you but forgot. Things have been going well, going to CC for a semester then transferring (should be fun). I like a more masculine style for FW, which SF better caters to.

    UPS Ground blows.

    Seriously, I don't get the love for couriers / hate for USPS. Priority Mail is cheaper than UPS/FedEx/whatever and twice as fast. Sure, you don't get as extensive tracking, but I'd rather get my stuff than track it.


    I agree and I have found usps even includes sundays as transit time. The only problem is if the package gets slightly big (bigger than what they provide like a pair of shoes) or slightly heavy like over 2 pounds the prices skyrockets and they nickel and dime you for everything while trying to upsell you at the counter because the old postal workers can't handle it. Priority used to include insurance up to 100 but the dude last time swore up and down priority never included that default limit insurance which I swear is bs. I never had to buy it if the value was under 100. I used to ship shoes years ago (5-10) and it was always 6 or 7 bucks max now it's 13-14 minimum. For heavier or bigger it's best to use fedex or ups.

    Why do people always talk about Urban Outfitters as if it's a brand?
    It's not a brand, it's several brands. A good chunk of the brands at UO are in-house but are not advertised as such.

    sup?

    The interaction between members.

    fedex ground is by far the worse imo. Lying about coming to the door, leaving the package in front of the doorstep at 9pm when there is a house full of people home.

    Lamenting about how overrated J. Crew is is more irritating than people acting like it's the greatest thing to happen to clothing.

    Seriously, didn't we JUST have this "conversation" in THIS thread?

    While we're at it, let's talk about how stupid Xeno is and how Uncontrol dresses like my aunt.

    For a package up to one pound Priority it is around five dollars. Over that up to two pounds is around nine. Even if it just right over the line.

    In aus the best service is Fedex, hands down. UPS is pretty good, problem with USPS is that it uses our shitty national service.

    Kunk have not got it yet but leave it till end of next week and then i'll let you know.

    Both of them do this in my experience.. pita. Fedex is by far the worse offender.
    DHL was even worse than both combined.. hence out of business.

    None of you have it bad enough to complain about shipping. Packages sent to poor fok get routed to moscow russia instead of moscow idaho.
