I was trying to send a birthday package to my mother and the printed "expected" delivery date was on her birthday, so I accepted. The package arrived * days after her birthday. ... I paid $**.** for a Priority box (*-*day service), sent on July * and still not arrived on July * (*th day). I understand there is no guarantee of delivery, but there should be a standard of service. It is like saying "we will accept your package, and give you a delivery date, but we will take as long as we want in actually delivering it, as in *-* days, ** days, ** days, *** days or up to "Infinity." I went to the local post office to try to get a refund and was turned away. If they want customer satisfaction they will do a better job at their so-called *-* day service. I am wanting a resolution of $**.** refunded to me. OR, I FOREVER take ALL my packages to another carrier. (as well will the person who has yet to receive the package) Is it worth it to lose * customers over?
This was especially frustrating because they charge a premium rate for a service that they have no intention in honoring. They will get the package to the destination "whenever." Paying $**.** for the USPS just to deliver a package is NO value. It could take *-* days, * days, ** days, ** days, **** days, on to infinity. Why even have an "expected" date on the receipt? Why call it Priority when it is clearly not. It is "Non"-Priority service What they don't realize is that they MUST start giving customers, *) value* *) excellent service, because they are fast becoming OBSOLETE and will go the way of the Pony Express VERY soon.
They could make this right be issuing me a refund for $**.**.
I have been a postal customer for over ** years. Now, I will automate all my bills to be paid autopay depriving them of stamp revenue. I will vow never to send another package via USPS, rather I will send my parcels with another carrier that will honor the agreement.
I already went to my local post office and explained my dissatisfaction about the situation, only to be shut down by the "company line" saying that there are no refunds for Priority mail.
