does UPS deliver on saturdays?

Dell shipped my new laptop and I woke up today to find that its out for delivery according to UPS. Did they just scan the package and it's going to be delivered on monday? Or do they deliver on saturdays?

I don't think they deliver ground on Saturdays, but they do with 2nd day and overnight.

I got ground shipping, but dell forums say that no matter what the service UPS's tracking info always shows ground. I'll have to see.

No, they do not in 99% of the cases.

I ship material UPS and the only way the UPS system allows Sat delivery is if it ships out on Friday. I doubt, unless you told Dell, that you will receive it today (sat.). My guess is that you will receive it Monday. I think Sat delivery is by Noon.

What does the UPS site show with your tracking #?

it says out for delivery

last scan was 6:57am this morning and it says out for delivery. weird thing is that above the detailed tracking it shows a rescheduled delivery of 5/16. I'm thinking that maybe it arrived last night or this morning and the night/weekend crew put it on the truck ready to be delivered on monday, but scanned it like it's going to be delivered today.

Looks like a Monday delivery since it was shipped Ground. That is why they have a Rescheduled Delivery date of the 16th.

UPS will only deliver on Saturday if it's an Express Delivery, and Saturday Delivery is requested.

I've received packages from UPS before on a Saturday, 2 or 3 different times & I don't get very much stuff delivered by UPS.

I always thought you had to request Saturday Delivery when you order for them to deliver anything to you on a Saturday,otherwise you would just get in on Monday.

I have the same situation where a laptop from Dell shipped out this Friday with next-day shipping. It's scheduled for Monday delivery, so they don't do Saturday delivery by default.

I ship packages with UPS every day. A LOT of packages. The sender has to specify AND pay extra for, Saturday delivery. Even if one or two day air.

It's probably already sitting in your drivers truck waiting for Monday morning when he gets there to deliver it. The loader scans it before he puts it in the truck, and it gets updated as "Out for delivery" then...

Also, Saturday delivery is not available in all areas, probably only hubs and large metropolitan areas and not rural areas and smaller citites/towns.
