Just a heads up for shoppers. Amazon has contracted with USPS for Sunday deliveries. I just found this out when I placed an order on Friday. An email from Amazon stated I would receive the item on Sunday. I first thought it was a misprint but, sure enough, my regular mailman dropped it off today. I asked if this was permanent or just during the holidays and that's when he told me about their new contract. This is certainly going to be a boost for Amazon. Providing Sunday delivery will make late week ordering less frustrating, when you need something quick.

Sorry, but we already sort of covered this in May.

In the past they used Laser shipping company that sometimes also delivered on Sunday. They seem to be local part time employees with no uniform.

Snail mail? My two day package received five days late two weeks ago. UPS and FedEx right on time when ordered late week before Christmas.

It's sort of strange that after years of talking about cutting a delivery day from the week,that they now added a delivery day to the week. When USPS pulled into my driveway the Sunday before Christmas, I didn't even question it. What came to mind within seconds was all the shipments last year that arrived late or dropped off the radar last year during the second have of December. A few hours later Fedex arrived followed by UPS showed up with the larger packages. And here I was just getting used to Fedex delivering on Saturdays.

I didn't know that so thanks for the information.

Didn't help me much because half of my order got lost this Christmas.

couldn't care less about a Sunday delivery of an item... just a way to make the USPS workers have to work more overtime. If anything I think they should eliminate Saturday delivery of mail as well. Most of the mail I get is junk and ends up in the trash without being opened... 90% of it.... as for packages shipped well people should plan ahead to get them on time.. if they order something the week of Christmas it's their own fault.
