Ha.. Paid for one day shipping w/ Amazon.. they shipped via UPS Ground

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by UnderpaidPackageSlaves, Dec 22, 2014.

  1. Is it possible for it to get here on time? I have prime, most of my two day/one day packages ship via ground with a "premium" listed on the label. Living in MO, and having most of my packages from KY, I'm surprised they always get here on time. They usually get processed through Worldport, which is all air incoming and outgoing. So, do some ground shipments go through air? Most of mine have..

    You don't work here, do you? Amazon has many warehouses, and the shipping it is probably a one day ground away from you, ergo they are keeping their guarantee of one day shipping. A way to decrease their shipping cost. "Premium" is just their way of saying Prime Member, I think.

    Ground to Hawaii goes air but normally ground goes ground. Air can go ground if it is possible to make service that way but very unlikely your ground package went air. Since it is Amazon it could have been shipped from a warehouse closer to you where it gets 1 day ground service. Or maybe Amazon screwed up. UPS never guaranteed that package would get there in 1 day if it was shipped as you stated.

    UPS never guarantees any ground deliveries by 4 pm.

    Don't blame UPS, complain to Amazon, they shipped it wrong if you paid for one day shipping.

    Amazon slams us on Christmas Eve, and then thinks we will be done by 4pm. Wow. They learned nothing from last year.

    Then your problem is with amazon.
     
  13. Amazon tries to do anything to save money smh, even at the cost of gifts or customers. They should've just gone Next Day Saver
     
  14. I never said my problem is with UPS, I was just wondering how in hell my ground package is going to get across multiple states overnight, because I paid amazon for one day.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Amazon doesn't make the delivery. Therefor they can't make any promises.

    If the airplane would be expected to take off, do a circle then land at the same airport......yea, your air shipment automatically becomes ground.

    It looks like Amazon processed it yesterday but UPS hasn't even picked it up yet.

    Anytime UPS can make service sending an NDA by ground instead of flying it they will.
