Title I Got Mail #8
Description The United States Postal Service (USPS) is delivering more PACKAGES every day.
If you are using home delivery to avoid going out, you may have already encountered a service termed "UPS Mail Innovations® ".

For this service, UPS begins the package mailing procedure, but then transfers the package to the U.S. Postal Service to complete the delivery.
Because the service is moving through two different companies (UPS and USPS), mail delivery is not day definite. UPS will track the package while they have the package, but once the postal service has the package, one must visit the U.S. Postal Service website for current status and delivery updates.

In other words, one must track with UPS to start, then track again with USPS after the package transfer occurs. The post office, after the hand-off from UPS, will deliver within 3-7 days under normal operating conditions.
Fortunately both sites honor the same tracking number (so far) if the tracking number stars with "927". Track with the original (UPS) tracking number when moving to the USPS tracking website if it starts with “927”. If not, one must use the Alternate Tracking Number found on in the Shipment Details section.

It Didn't Fit
.....Package mailed via UPS
.....Package tracked via UPS first week
.....Package handed off to USPS
.....Package tracked via USPS second week
.....Package too large for mailbox
.....If the package is too large for your mailbox, the package is left at the door
.....And the rest of one's mail is placed in the mailbox
.....It's like Getting Christmas Presents Twice!!
Available or Traded? TRADED
