USPS delivery.. Is it just me or has it been so SLOW lately??!!

Lately when I order my coupons and sellers send them it's getting slower and even more slower. I order from the same sellers who I know ship them next day. One in particular is right below me in Ohio. Usually I order by Monday and get on Wednesday. I did this and I still haven't received the coupons! Today is Friday.

Yesterday no mail at all (odd too). Today mail, but no coupons. I have over 8 orders waiting to come in. Last week it took over 4 days for mail to come in from southern Ohio (I'm in the Northeast).

Is something going on with the USPS that I don't know about? Mail seems to be delayed 2 days or more.

I'm also worried mail is being delivered to a wrong address as I have a new mail carrier. She has done this before. Street behind me gets my mail. Twice this lady has come to my door to give me my mail (our addresses are almost the same but obviously different streets). Just makes me wonder what she has kept and not returned! These are all coupons so if she opened them then it's a good day for her.

I've emailed the USPS about this but never got a response. Ready to call.

Anyone hear about anything?

There's no telling. I feel really bad for those carriers with walking routes. There's no way they can move as quickly in this heat as they normally do. Maybe the heat is affecting the speed of the sorting units too?

On the bright side, when you do get them, your mailbox will be full and it will be like a coupon bonanza!

We've had a sub, so not only is our mail being delivered later in the day, I'm getting some of the usual mail a day later.

Our mail is delivered by truck, mailbox is at the street.

I have had problems lately too with USPS at work. We sent out a lot of letters and apparently some of the addresses were vacant lots...we got those returned to us a month and a half after we sent them out. Every letter we sent was going out to addresses within our town, which only has one post office. Also, a lot of people have been calling us saying that they sent us something and we never got it...I'm talking at least 25 people have called and said they mailed us something two months ago that we never received. And these people really have no incentive to lie, so I believe that they are telling the truth.

But no, I haven't heard anything about why the mail is running slower than usual. I am thinking about calling my post office too.

My mail carrier drives a truck. she doesn't get out for anything. We used to get our mail by 1pm, but she changed the route and now we get it by 4pm. I may go out on Monday and talk to her about this other lady getting my mail. Don't want to upset my mail carrier, but this is ridiculous.

Funny story... Got my mail personally today. Got 2 bills and the rest junk. We were heading out to dinner and I saw my mail box was open. I went to close it and noticed a bunch of mail was in it (this was around 7pm). Here is 5 envelopes of my coupons and other items. Now did a neighbor put them in there OR did the carrier find this in her truck and bring it around (was gone for a couple hours after getting the mail.). Hmmm

Yes, it's been slower. My parents got a Christmas card today that was mailed last November.

I've noticed it has been slower, I just moved and my forwarded mail is taking 2-3 weeks to arrive here. Coupons I ordered one state away took 3 days to arrive. Maybe it is just the mail delivery in this area though because in PA I ordered q's from NY that would arrive the next day and that was fairly consistent. Where I am at now it is very unpredictable.

Mine seems a lot quicker lately, so I think I'm just VERY lucky.

What part of Ohio? Toledo, by chance?

I order inserts from a provider and when she ships them on Mondays, I ALWAYS receive them by Thursday and when she ships on Tuesdays I ALWAYS receive them by Friday. Anyway....a couple weeks ago she shipped right away Monday morning and it was Friday before I got them. And they were sent PRIORITY! But we have all kinds of issues with EVERY form of mail/packaging around here.

They leave packages in our mailbox with the flap open so the entire world can peek in and see if there is anything they may want to take.

UPS and Fedex just drops packages off at our doorstep. Not a porch, not a deck, not anything covered or enclosed...just a step. Just drops them off. When no cars are even in the driveway....including a $400 phone!!!!! It REALLY irritates me. Especially the phone considering we JUST filed an insurance claim through our cell phone provider to get a new phone due to water damage. So they drop it off on our front step when NO ONE is home and it POURED rain today. Luckily, our neighbor noticed right after they dropped it off and picked it up for us but really?!?!?

We used to get notices at least on the door stating they TRIED to deliver it and we could either pick it up or they would try again but not anymore! Once it comes off their truck, it's NOT going back on!


Sorry...I guess I had to vent, too.

Perry ohio. Toledo is a couple hours south of me. I now know I won't get my coupons on Wednesday as I usually do... When ordering over the weekend (my clipping service ships on mondays when you order over the weekend). I now expect it on Thursday or Friday.

I still haven't received my Albertson's ad for this week, which always comes on Monday.

My child support check was mailed 2 hours from my home on Saturday, and I didn't get it until yesterday.

Frustrating!!
