Depends on what is being mailed and where it's going.  I sent  card to my sister in TN and it was there in 2 days (from SC). Sent by USPS ordinary mail.

I ordered a top from Macy's - it shows it shipped with Mail Innovations on Dec 2 from Goodyear AZ - I live near San Diego - the ETA is Dec 12.  10 days seems very slow.  I know the delay with Mail Innovations is the exchange between UPS and USPS.

@simplyfriends.  My last Macy's  order, received about 2 weeks ago, took two weeks to get to me, a week awaiting pick up by the shipper.

Re: Mail services

From what I’ve seen, if something is going, mail all the way there hasn’t been any noticeable delays.

The biggest delays come when shipping services are transferring - UPS or FedEx to USPS.

USPS also has fewer sorting facilities and sometimes are behind on updated tracking info.

My last 3 deliveries were each a day earlier than initially quoted.  Guess things move faster in 'flyover country'.

I must be fortunate because my mail service is excellent.

A Kohls order took a little over a week to arrive.  Same for HSN. Orders started with UPS then handed off to the postal service.  I can live with that.

Yes, for me my QVC orders are now coming at a snails pace. Most all of them are being shipped via Mail Innovations. As an example I ordered two necklaces on Nov. 19th and did not get them till Dec. 2nd. They sat in our capital city USPS for seven days with the dreaded "Shipment Received, Package Acceptance Pending" before finally moving on to the little town I'm in currently. If packages were shipped via UPS Surepost I could upgrade them to delivery by UPS with my UPS My Choice subscription. They would arrive quickly. But with Mail Innovations I do not have that option. Woman Frustrated

 

I'll be honest, this past free shipping weekend with QVC I did not order one darn thing.
