UPS Next Day Air Early AM Money Back Guarantee Question

    What would happen if a company that has "money back guarantee" included in their contracted rates with UPS decided to do a marketing campaign to 50,000 homes in the same zip code. The company decides to send all the letter envelopes out on a Friday UPS Next Day Air Early AM for Saturday delivery.

    Obviously that would flood the system and there is no way UPS would be able to make service on all those envelopes. Would the company be able to have the charges for all these shipments refunded since UPS didn't make service on them? Or would the money back guarantee be void since the shipper flooded UPS with so much extra volume?

    But I'll bite and for your scenario, a Saturday eam is big bucks and I would imagine UPS would do everything they can to make service....it's all about the dollar.

    Doesn't the refund move to the next service level? He would get back the difference between early am and regular Sat air.
     
  6. If you are sending out 50,000 pieces next day air I'm sure they'd find a way to accommodate you.

    In another thread it was discussed that there is no time commit to Residential.

    Same thing that happens with other large shippers who send out mass NDA mailings. UPS would insist on a relax commit time for those packages.

    Good point. I think you're right unless the shipper was big like Amazon or the likes, and made a stink about a full refund.

    Residentials still have commit times for EAM and NDA, just the savers and other levels are not committed.

    If you can send out 50 THOUSAND Saturday EAM's, then youd be a multi millionaire.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    This was for 2nd Day Air AM only. Residential EAMs most definitely have a time commit.

    There is no way a business would even consider sending out 50K envelopes Saturday EAM knowing that the vast majority would be thrown out upon receipt.

    Well the cost for a letter EAM from the city I live in to the city I working in about 52 miles away is $78.50 if I was and idiot and tried to pull a fast one to get free shipping and shipped 50,000 EAM hoping not to pay shipping. It would cost me $3.925 milliom dollars and UPS would have the last laugh.

    That being said there is a UPS building and the city I live.

    If we are going to talk about being idiots. Lets at least not type like one and make an incredibly long run on sentence.

    I stand corrected, for Resi, NDA does have time commit.
    For 2nd day air to Resi, there is no time commit.

    Really, the grammar police are calling people names now. I hope you understand that if that is the case you must be calling everyone on BC an idiot.

    You can call me anything you want but remember I never said I was a English major in college.
