    The same box that would have cost me $28.53 was $8.30 USPS and will arrive the same day - tomorrow. Same service 71 percent less cost.

    And free insurance and free pick up with USPS. And yes I know USPS may have a delayed shipment or even lose a parcel compared to UPS, I can handle that with insurance and the savings USPS is giving me.

    I see UPS lost 1 billion dollars in revenue when Amazon dumped them due to their higher rates and not meeting deadlines. One of my suppliers offers the option of USPS vs. UPS as it's usually cheaper.

    And for those of you that said your pensions and wages were safe:

    And no I'm not trolling. Just responding to the snarky posts from another thread. I still think you are hard working people as I have friends that are drivers and a UPS retired brother-in-law. Of course some of you here have the maturity of a 5th grader. LOL

    Cheers! Best of luck with UPS's future.

    I hope you read the small print. Priority shipping through the USPS could take up to three days and doesn't have a money back guarantee.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    The 3 days is also between post office branches.

    The OP does have a valid point. We do tack on some ridiculous fees.

    Yep. As does Fedex. The USPS doesn't have shareholders to keep happy.

    Yea? Well USPS doesn't give you the satisfaction of opening up a smashed and damaged box with foot prints on it, so take that!
