Have you thought about leaving a note where all the mailboxes are? You never know if one of your neighbours will get the package and a note will help them put 2 and 2 together.

pharmy:  I had something like this happen too. I had 2 things coming in the mail, one was actually delivered but the online tracking said both of them were. I was furious and it was later in the day so I didn’t call anyone. At about 8:30 there was a knock on my door with my other package. Why they were seperate, and why they both said “delivered” is beyond me- but I did end up with both my packages. Hopefully this is the same thing for you!

  • Wedding: April 2014

I just had a problem yesterday that I am trying to hash out with UPS.

I send a lot of my packages to my parents’ house three miles away – gated community and a courtyard so you can’t see packages from the street, but they both work during the day.  All of Signature Requireds I will either send to my house (FI works graveyard) or my office.

I bought my table runners on the 7th and they sent the package with *signature required* all over it, unknown to me.

Yesterday my mother handed me a UPS Notice with 3rd attempt, dated 3/17/14 and now it is being sent back to PA and I can’t get ahold of the sender and even if I can get the sender to mail it again, it’s going to cost me another $20 something to get them to send it AGAIN.  UPS won’t stop the return shipment, won’t flag the package, or anything.  

I.  Am.  Pissed.

I hope I can get my damn runners back within the next 3 weeks, because my wedding is April 12th!

pharmy:  I had this problem a few months ago with USPS. Ordered 2 different packages from the same company, just a day apart. They both said delivered so I went to my mailbox (same kind of setup as yours) and there was just one package inside. I called my local post office, they talked to the carrier, who reported putting it in there. 4 months later and they still won’t refund the money (package was insured by the sender) because it was marked delivered.

I’m sorry that you have to deal with this! It’s completely frustrating!

pharmy:  did the mail lady said she put both packages in your mailbox.  recently i got a package from amazon.  the status on the tracking number said delivered.  when i got home that night i was concerned that it wasn’t there.  i was going to give it one more day then call.

the next day it was delivered.

futuremrsstraight: horrible. Why didn’t you open a dispute with your credit card?

pharmy:  i’m glad it was resolved! Amazon is amazing and I love Prime!

bitsybee:  I let the sender (an online boutique) know and they were trying to resolve it. But I honestly didn’t even think about opening a dispute with my card company and at this point, it’s probably too late :/
