Problems With USPS Store?

Posted by heatherbon 5 (My Page) on

I ordered stamps online the other night online from the usps store not sure if anyone else has done this but it had said it would ship in 1 day but 3 days later no I called they said oh it may take 5-7 days to get to you!!! How could stamps from the post office take so long. So what I thought was a great idea at 1 am turns out was a pain in the butt! Sorry to everyone who I am in a trade with but this is the hold up!! Next time I think I will just try to catch my mail man and have him get me stamps but with 2 kids and a dog and a unpredictable mailman that is unlikely!!!

Just curious if anyone has ever had this problem

My 'guess' is that they put them in the mail in one day (said it would ship in 1 day,) and then another 2-3 (excluding Sundays) to get to you....for a total of 3-4 days.

so I called they said oh it may take 5-7 days to get to you!!!
Maybe their way of saying don't worry and give them some time, and don't get alarmed if they aren't there in 3-4 days.

Sue who does have stamps and should get some seeds packed and out today

RE: Problems With USPS Store?

I've received their boxes from them (I think they'll make great round robin exchange and plant shipping) and sometimes they're here in 2 days, sometimes 5......I'm willing to wait because they're free.

Linda..whose still waiting for boxes

RE: Problems With USPS Store?

yes, sometimes its like 2 days from topeka which is 25 miles from us and other times its like 1 day. but on the other hand i get mail from 3 states over in 2 days. the mail is really weird!! LOL
