2ND DAY AIR UPS

2ND DAY AIR UPS

On 7/10 I ordered 2 iPhone4 16g at the store.

The rep who processed my order told me they have to do 2 separate orders, so now I have 2 order numbers and 2 UPS tracking numbers on hand. Both phones will be shipped to the store whereI placed the orders.

 

One of the order seems to be already picked up and on UPS system (original scan, TX).

The other order is not picked up yet, UPS tracking info just says billing info received.

 

So... how does the UPS 2nd day air work? Does today count as "first day" since it was picked up at 7am central I believe, and will get to the store by tomorrow?

 

And these phones are for NEW family plan account, if one phone gets to the store before the other, do I have to wait until the other phone gets there to pick them up?

 

One more question, since my phones are getting shipped to the store (business location) does UPS deliver on Saturday like Fedex does?

 

I'm sorry for all these questions, I'm just really excited and frustrated at the same time Smiley Happy

I was expecting Fedex overnight, just like everyone else, and have no personal experience with UPS 2nd day air...

Will UPS deliver early if it doesnt take the full 2 days to get to your location??


I don't want to get your hopes up, but yes.  I send items via UPS 2nd day air AM (may make a difference with AM) about 200 miles and it gets there next day.

Thanks. I just needed to know hypothetically if there was a chance they would do it. We will see tomorrow I guess! I am about 350 miles from where they ship it out in fort worth so fingers crossed that they get here fast...

Re: 2ND DAY AIR UPS

Where does it show the expected delivery date?

 

And mines saids In Transit also. I really hope I get it tomorrow but I would rather get it Saturday than Monday.

http://www.ups.com/content/us/en/shipping/time/service/value_added/sat_delivery.html They do do saturday for 2nd day air, but it says if you click the pricing link, it says it costs 15 dollars. :\ you would think that with all the back ordering and waiting a week or more that they would do us customers a favor and pay the extra 15 bucks per order for saturdays. With all the money they are making with the new iphone 4 and 3GS going for 100 bucks they wont lose that much money.
