I ordered a $5000 laptop via amazon recently. It was supposed to be here in 2 days with Amazon Prime. It took FedEx 8 days! FedEx has gone way downhill in the past couple of years. Lots of complaints. The story above is from 2015.

UPS opened-it and re taped it. Last one usps wanted the cups. Why don't they have cameras on all packages? they sure know how to put them on us.

I hate when my Amazon package is UPS sent. Worst tracking and always extremely late.

USPS from Amazon is always on time and sometimes early. Their self delivery is pretty damn quick too. Ordered something same day at 2 am and got it at 9 am.

USPS workers, would rather troll YT to keep their jobs, than just do them. They are a bunch of lazy liberals, who all need to be sent packing.
Ipso Facto (9 months ago)
We need to privatize the post office, it would save the country a fortune. We have over 500,000 postal workers making an average of over $50,000 a year plus excellent benefits and retirement. They all need to go, they are lazy freaks who refuse to do their jobs. We can pay people minimum wage with no benefits for much better service.

Fedex/ups is pretty much the same but usps is slowwwww
gonzayare (9 months ago)
USPS is one of the best public institutions in USA and the best public mail service in world. Cheap, fast and reliable. Of course isn't at the level of commercial companies, would have to be waaaaay more expansive. Yes, some few USPS offices are lead by lazy managers, but most of them not & deliver a great service.
Ipso Facto (9 months ago)
How long have you been working at the post office? They are overpaid, lazy and stupid. It won't be long before they are all out of a job.

i am a construction worker who builds these places and fed- ex uses non union mexicans and blacks as very cheap labor to get what they want
Jake D (10 months ago)
Yeah? There is a reason why Mexicans are being used for everything, including construction. They don't bitch and moan and they do way better work than you.

50 bucks to ship a mug???!!!! If you paid the USPS 20 bucks they'd Xpress that overnight and have it there the next day. And in all fairness the USPS has to handle way more packages then Ups and FedEx. It's actually pretty common for those two companies to drop off their packages for the USPS to deliver because they can't handle the volume. Making the USPS even later because they have to do their work too.

You realize FedEx delivers USPS packages also
apdroid geek (21 days ago)
It may seem that usps have alot of package because alot of Americans use it, internationally though FedEx ships way more than usps
apdroid geek (21 days ago)
FedEx actually handle the most packages, usps being the second.

Priority boxes at the USPS are FREE…jesus every this is FAKE NEWS….Oh by the way USPS is the ONLY service which will return your undelivered mail. How do I know? I carried mail as a city carrier. I witnessed UPS or Fedex boxes delivered to VACANT addresses.

THAT RANDOM CHANNEL (1 year ago)
It just depends on how close you live to the ups/fedex store. The most important part is the last location before arriving how Competent are the drivers in my case fedex is terrible I’m to the point where if a company uses fedex i just get it somewhere else.
james (1 year ago)
So ups has a time machine???!!!! Cmon idiots you asked for three day delivery you got it on time not three days early, smh the lies on the news are ridiculous.
NorthEastRegional HD ✈ (3 months ago)
james I assume they (UPS) overnighted the package because of convenience/$$$ reasons, even so it’s three days shipping. Likely their distribution network chose to overnight.
james (1 year ago)
So do they refund your charges for the two day delivery when it took 5 days instead?

FedEx and USPS both suck for me. Currently waiting on a package through USPS. I check the tracking it says its been in my town for the last 2days, but has yet to reach my mailbox. Oh yeah, I made my order Monday, here it is Saturday😡😤
charlie barnett (1 year ago)
Don't use the postal service! Until they privatize the whole system you're package or envelope will never arrive!! Seriously!
Robert Long (1 year ago)
Do you think that UPS and Fedex is going to haul your first class letter from Boise to Boston for 49 cents? That's the problem with USPS, they're rates are too low. It's also the carrier of the last resort and it's for that reason that both UPS and X dump as much of it's rural boonie boxes off to the post office . The post office will haul it out there for less than what UPS and X can do it themselves.
charlie barnett (2 years ago)
Why not privatize the postal service? It's clearly an outdated system and unless you're receiving packages 📦 every day the only thing you get is junk mail. Let's not forget almost everyone uses emails to send and receive letters. It makes perfect sense by privatizing the postal service we can reduce our nations debt
Joedy Barnes (4 months ago)
To ditto the above point. They are fully funded by the fees they charge to mail. Even after lobbies tried to kill USPS by making them front save every employees retirement, they are still profitable.
Alejandro Pina (1 year ago)
The USPS has no effect on the national debt. They are self-funded. No tax dollars go to USPS.
Jstalilred Trifonov (1 year ago)
charlie barnett there is a privatized mailing system. It's called UPS and FED Ex. LOL

Priority mail by USPS is not a guaranteed or next day mail. Next time ask for USPS xpress next day service ......and it's still cheaper than FedEx and Ups
Frank Budroux (2 years ago)
Ups always delivers business packages earlier in the day residential usually later in the day..
Model RC (2 years ago)
USPS may be the location but mine usually arrive early
BloodLinez Gaming (2 years ago)
When you order stuff (Without a camera/news team) things go a lot slower, Fedex drives the packages cross country, UPS normally drives the coast. UPS is faster then fedex when it comes to traveling, UPS holds the packages for longer then fedex at the Post Office, Fedex just travels slower because they normally do cross country delivery's so that makes the inventory more clustered but they get sent out a lot faster, to be honest when your waiting on a package looking out your window every 5 minutes their both slow
Jake D (10 months ago)
Connor Fed Ex doesn't just use aircraft. They use trucks coast to coast also. Quit calling people dummies on something you know nothing about. Jack ass!
Martin Charles (2 years ago)
Great experiment with a sample size of 1.
Matt Merrill (2 years ago)
I've always had great service with Ups and Fedex, USPS is okay for me, but DHL they're always late for me. Sent a shirt to a family member this past Christmas using Ups and it costed me 10 bucks with I think 4 day shipping, or cheapest. But 40 dollars just to send a mug? I'd just send money and have them buy it.

Slirun _ you're fucking idiot for wishing unemployment on thousands of people working for USPS. Usps is a viable business currently and it does not receive any tax dollar money paid by anyone. USPS totally relies on stamps sold and the shipping. US government does not fund its official POST OFFICE. If USPS needs money then they can borrow it from treasury at 1.2% interest rate. Being a government entity, USPS does enjoy benefits such as exemption of property tax, tolls, vehicle registration fees and parking tickets. It's enjoying just like any other government agency. Only before 1971, USPS received federal appropriations.

Tamerlane (Timur) TBH post office is disater they always play a game called oh we delevered it but really they don't . Their tracking #'s are big fat liers , people perfer emails over mails bc is better. UPS and fedex will always crush USPS in deliverary . How about we get rid of post office 1 by 1 and replace with amazon. to get better mails , shipping and no more fucking government funding for bs post office. Come on lets make it happen lol .
Tamerlane (Timur) (2 years ago)
yep, they never delever to ur front door. lazy fuckers.
Robert Matsumura (2 years ago)
I've had the worst experiences with UPS. UPS always delivers my packages late and occasionally gets delayed. FedEx always delivers my packages before 12pm and they always conceal the package so it doesn't get stolen. My vote is for FedEx. I love them.
StumpSteph (7 months ago)
Robert Matsumura no fedex sucks, I’m waiting on my package now (7:00) and it probably won’t even come today. But when I use usps it always comes on time and early
Al Sa (9 months ago)
That all depends on the city and state. In my area here in California, Fedex be hiring ghetto people. With UPS is harder to get in especially as a driver.

Both UPS and Fedex do a great job of actually delivering. Where they both fall flat on their faces is when you try and call someone by phone and get any sort of info at all, even something as simple as when a pick up is scheduled from one of their own drop-off points. Each representative you speak with from Pakistan or India or wtf they are, has and idea what's going on and will give you a different story from the last. If you count on them, you will never get your package shipped. Just chase a driver down and ask him/her or go to one of the hubs (not a drop-off). Calling will get you pissed off. Nothing more.
