Today is only the 21st and checks as a norm don't process to after the tenth.
Don't forget Sundays and holidays because USA mail doesn't run as you probably are aware.

That is true, I usually get mine around the 17th of every month but Im guessing the hold up is because of the holidays, thank you

This is busiest time of year for post office. Only things they deliver on time this time of Year amazon prime packages. Always get those on date promised. UPS been day off delivering for past month on all my packages. I still prefer UPS as they bring it to front door and ring door bell. So switching to Best Buy next year as they use UPS vs amazon using USPS bulk of time. USPS tries fit everything in mail box than I get spend 20 minutes trying get it out. We got biggest mail box they offer so most days not problems. Rarely get FedEx so can not comment on it.

Best Buy does not make me pay for faster shipping due my spending so much there yearly ($3500 a year). So I be dropping Prime once expires next December.

Im not going to speak for you and I don't even know where you are.

I'll just say that when ordering items thru large stores, even from Amazon, much is dependent
upon what you are ordering in regards to how it is delivered. Also, supply and demand.

Most items I order thru Amazon come through the USA mail. Other times I have ordered
products and received thru FedEx and also thru UPS.

Walmart is the same way. I could order a package of cookies one day and it ship FedEx
from Arkansas and the next day I could order a package of cookies and it ship UPS from
Nashville and the next.......it's kind of mind boggling.

Yep, my check is late getting here, too. Being the Christmas season, it's understandable (although in my own experience, it's really never been late before).

As far as UPS is concerned, here in Colorado...they suck eggs. Nothing but trouble, plus they tend to toss the packages (not place them) and never ring the bell. I just this past week experienced an "on time delivery-package out for delivery" and got nothing...3 days straight. Amazon issued a goodwill refund, and got me what I ordered here yesterday (Sunday). It's the 4th mess up in a couple of years just to this house. Many neighbors have complained, too. We watched the trucks and the delivery peeps for 3 days, waiting. It was supposed to be on the truck, but never made it past the station. They never fessed up, either. But Amazon sure did a lot of apologies after investigating. We do seem to have better luck with the post office deliveries (and they're actually a LOT nicer here then UPS).

Once, a few years ago, a friend sent a beautiful Omaha Steaks birthday package to me. UPS delivered it to the same number address, two streets over. Unfortunately, the people living there decided to keep and eat most of the goodies, until our neighbor questioned them. They stuffed what was left in the package, re-taped it, and left it on our porch, and took off. My friend contacted Omaha Steaks AND UPS. UPS offered no apologies, Omaha sent another package with EXTRA goodies in it, free of charge, and sent my friend a really great extra discount. Shows class and great customer service when things like that happens.

But really, it's like Valerie said, luck of the draw for the most part during holidays.

You wouldn't believe what I received a few months ago!

I had placed an order at Walmart dot com for about ten cans of stew and 3 packages of
the Lance brand peanut bars (peanut brittle bars). Seems I had an ordered something
else too but don't remember. It displayed my order had shipped and would be arriving
thru the postal mail service via FedEx. I hate when they do that as it is so silly to me
since the truck passes directly by my road every day. Anyway....I waited for the order
and I waited and waited. It does often take 10 days and some times even up to 15 days
for an order from Walmart dot com thru the USA mail via FedEx. No big deal, no hurry
for it.

It never arrived.

Again, no big deal, as it wasn't anything I was in dire need of. I contacted Walmart
and they saw it had never delivered. They gave me a refund.

Months passed. Ohhhh I know what else it was, a package of Full Moon dog jerky.

So months passed and one day a GIANT box arrived thru the postal mail. I couldn't
fathom what it was since I wasn't expecting anything, especially nothing in a HUGE
box.

I opened it and inside was.....YEP...sure enough.....there was my cans of stew all
rolling around in the box......and there was my peanut bars, most out of their little
box and swimming around the cans and the ...... package of dog jerky that was dirty
and all sweaty looking thru its package window. And then.....guess what else.....

HUNDREDS OF CELL PHONES! All beat up! Pieces of cell phones. Some with backs,
some without backs.....some with batteries, some without batteries....most all scratched
and dented......various instruction pamphlets......and one little knife.....a knife that you
might get for a quarter at a dollar store.

It was in the summer so I guess most that stuff got hot some where. I broke down the
box and put all the items in trash bags and placed in the trash can. I can only guess
what happen. It was very weird.

Well the UPS drivers know me they left packages with me when they see me eating. They not going to ruin things for such person. Wish could say same for USPS or Fedex. Guess depends on local area I happy I got good UPS workers in my area.

I know all of them and they know me. UPS, FedEx, mail man......we use to have two mail men, now
only one. I sold a garage door to the UPS guy.

That has nothing to do with me receiving a giant box of junk. I think there must have been a wreck
of some sort, some where a long the lines and it took them weeks to sort it......it did have my walmart
slip inside......and whoever was doing to sorting decided to toss all the broken cell phones in the box
to me. It was totally weird.

PS. I hate BestBuy
