USPS is unreal!
 
Added everything up for 2012. $840 total shipping bill to USPS. Here's the damage:
Packages lost: 0
Packages damaged: 0
Packages delayed: 1 (parcel post, unusual size, took 3 and 1/2 weeks)

Un-freakin-real! Props USPS, you saved me a ton of money vs. the competition and had a 100% delivery rate. Long live the postal service!

I too have had good results and prefer the USPS over other shipping methods.

Last year, I "discovered" the practicality of the flat rate box...

About $.75 on medium flat rate boxes. I can live with that ;)

USPS always gets packages delivered to my house where-as the competition has repeatedly delivered to several other houses in the area with an address similar to mine.

Also, flat rate boxes are outstanding in function and price.

I will NEVER use another shipping method besides USPS

Overall USPS is good, although around Christmas they delivered my package about 2 blocks from my house.:huh:

I've only ever used USPS. The guys at my local know me by name. It's actually gotten to the point that I'm now selling a bike rack for one of the Bulk Mail guys because he saw that I do a lot of shipping and asked if I could unload it for him!!!

NOTE: Tracking is included even on what used to be called "Parcel Post" (now called Standard)...not just first class. I was told you can basically track anything.

Also be careful with the flat rate.....often times it'll ship cheaper in a regular box. I won't sacrifice 5 dollars for convenience.
