    Shipping Timeframe

    Advertisements
    Do you find that the tracking for shipping CPs while still in the US varies?

    CP #1 - sent the Tues before Thanksgiving, by Thanksgiving (2 days later) it was already in Chicago which is the last tracking point

    CP #2 - sent this past Mon and tracking says it still hasn't even left Philadelphia. It departed the post office and is at the origin facility as of Mon night but there hasn't been any activity since then.

    Just not sure if I should be worrying that something happened to this package, or maybe the timing varies especially due to the holidays and whatnot?

    i know even just for normal domestic packages the mail has been slow lately, probably due to increased volume, i would just give it a couple of extra days.

    It is the highest time to ship a package here. Expect great delays.

    When I was sending mine earlier this year, it tended to fluctuate even without holidays. Some packages took 2 weeks to get there while others took closer to 6 (ugh). I'd say just give it a few days.

    Everything takes longer from Christmas to New Year's, in addition to normal fluctuations.

    Alright I was worried for nothing! I just got an email that the package LEFT Chicago! But there's no tracking saying it ever left Philadelphia or arrived in Chicago. Guess it snuck over there, but it's on its way!

    I wouldn't worry! I had one package say it was still in the US and DH had already received it.

    Surprisingly enough I sent an APO package last week and it got there in 6 days when it is usually 8-9. I just sent out two today, I hope they arrive in time for Christmas.

    I sent CP #1 on 11/25 and it got to his APO in Kuwait on 12/4 - took 7 business days. I know it varies for APO/Country/etc
