That happened to me last year. But it was FedEx. And I even mailed it on the 20th for next day air. It was an extremely important gift and it did not get delivered until after Christmas.

After a heated rant to their CS, they refunded my money.

Perhaps you should not be ordering your "important" gifts less than 5 days before christmas.

Ironically, a software tutorial book I had on order forever just happened to ship Friday. I got it yesterday. Of course if it was something I was really anxious to get it would have been late.

Yes, UPS does indeed suck.

Ordered my gf a necklace from Tiffany's on the 16th, 2nd day air. Her birthday is on the 20th. Tracked package from NJ to the UPS hub which is just a few miles from my apt. on the 19th. So far so good. But the next morning, there's a note on the tracking sysytem that says they routed the package to the incorrect hub, which is much further away. Still got an "out for delivery" message at 5:30 a.m. However, the package didn't arrive and was returned to hub that evening, essentially ruining my gf's birthday.

Morning of the 21st, the tracking system said "out for delivery" again at 5 a.m. Spent most of the day at home waiting for delivery to show up in fear they'd require a signature.

Didn't arrive until 7:30 p.m. that evening.

I hate UPS.

Both of my sisters sent us Christmas gifts more than 10 business days before Christmas. One went UPS, the other USPS.

Neither package arrived here for Christmas.

My balls of fury gift set was crushed by UPS, but maybe that has more to do with walmart's shitty packaging methods. I blame the latter.

Regardless of what should have been done by the poster he is still in the right. When you mail something and you pay a premium to have it arrive the next day, it better arrive the next day.

I just recently signed up for Amazon Prime and ordered something to be delivered next day air on Saturday. It showed up Monday. Ordered something yesterday as well and it should be here tomorrow.

So far, UPS is kicking ass for me around the holidays!

UPS is OK. FedEx really sucks. And don't expect reliable delivery right before XMas. Busiest time of year and things get held up.

UPS says there are delays around this time of year every year. especially for residential deliveries because the package volume goes up like crazy. i know a UPS driver and he racks up a lot of OT this time of year

Yes, because she is a skank.

Actually, the "88" (or whatever that is) on the brim of her hat caught my eye and I glanced at the other picture and noticed the logo difference.

My UPS delivery people never look like that. If they did I would be ordering a lot more things.
