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.

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

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.
