Re: Informed delivery

There's very little I don't get images for (including most bulk rate mail).  The last week or so, it's been squirrely, but it seems to have sorted itself out.

Since I use a PO Box, I like the service - it let's me know when I need to bother traipsing out to the PO to get my mail Smiley Happy

Re: Informed delivery

Informed delivery makes me feel like I'm stalking myself, with or without scanned images

Re: Informed delivery

What's even better is when you get scanned images of mail that is supposed to arrive today but doesn't show up until 3 days later.  I gave up on informed delivery as I only found it beneficial if I was waiting for card a new card to arrive.  99% of the rest is junk mail...

Re: Informed delivery

Tracking numbers for packages all in one email from Amazon to VS is the benefit of informed delivery for me. Fiancee and sisters order so much stuff from everywhere it seems like 🤷‍♂️

The guy who had my PO Box before me was a chiropracter so I get TONS of chiropractic gadgetry and pillows junk mail.   I always mark them return to sender and I noticed that after a couple of "RTS"s, I'll see the scans but not the mail.   Pretty sure the post office is tired of me marking those all RTS instead of just trashing them.

Re: Informed delivery



In a way I wish I hadn't signed up for informed delivery. It has made me aware that the mail cariers and/or post office in my area are not doing their job. I get images of items that never show, and most is junk mail, so no worries, but now it's happening to packages. The post office desk clerk told me to check the mailboxes near my house because the GPS delivery data shows it was delivered in the vicinity of my house. Really?!? You want me to go rifling through my neighbor's mailboxes?? Don't think so.

Most unfortunate to say the least! Actually, unreal to suggest you find your mail by going through other mail boxes ... a Federal Offense to say the least.

 

In my area when the USPS would hire part-time Postal Workers that would leave the mail in the truck and take off early to go do other things or off for a few days (went several days at a time with no mail). Miss delivery (tough when there is only three addresses on the block?) became common.

 

About three to four years back, the postal services right sized their budget and eliminated all but one processing center for the state I live in. Now service for over 5 million people works through one center. It takes up to four days to mail a card 3 1/2 miles. Thank heavens for the modern age ... switched my life to electronic and took e type delivery so as to not bother the postal system with mail and it has worked very well. Do not see it improving. Oh, in talking with a major bank in another state where it seems that our state's change in processing was similar to their state. To go on requires me to rant and cross into politics a no no so I end it here.

 

Good luck on your quest to secure information directed to you with your correct name and address Smiley Mad

I feel EXACTLY the same way... Ignorance is bliss.... I signed up for ID like 2 months before the holidays. It was scary to see how many holiday cards/packages never made it to the house. I also had to go to the DMV to get my car registration renewal 3 weeks after I got the ID that it was being delivered that day.
