    Bizarre. I don't mean this to sound condescending, but what does it say when you use the tracking number from the shipment email on the USPS website?

    I had that happen to me once with a J Crew Factory order. It took me about a week to sort it all out. It was our normal mailwoman's day off, so someone was filling in. Turned out he delivered it to 707D, not 807D, which was a block down from us. USPS didn't know this, of course, so I left notes in everyone's mailboxes with my phone number and pertinent information. No one called, so I went by 707D and knocked on the door. A nice middle-eastern lady answered the door and said that she had the package. She thought it was her sons because he orders lots of stuff online. The order was unharmed, but what an ordeal.

    tl;dr - Smartpost sucks.

      UPS's version is SurePost and yes, it isn't that great.

      This is my first time (or first time I noticed) that it's through SurePost. Hopefully it'll be waiting at my door when I get home today.

      The annoying part is when you see that it arrived at your local UPS distribution center late night. If its UPS delivering, itll be delivered the next day. But with SurePost, they eat up that day to get it to USPS and you know USPS isn't in a rush to get it out that same morning.

        I ordered blue neumok's off ebay and they were never delivered. I went through ebay at first and ebay person confirmed delivery and all that jazz. Post office even confirmed delivery, but they never showed up. I kept going through the post office until they finally said there was nothing I can do without proof of value which the ebayer had to provide. Then I contacted ebay and was outside their policy. Then I moved a week later. No two companies I hate more than ebay and paypal.

          Got the jacket in Dark Summit! Thanks for the code, I was going to buy this jacket this Fall but the price couldn't be beat!

            It says it was delivered. I doubt it was misdelivered in the way you describe because I had it delivered to work. Sometimes things get misdelivered to one of the other mailrooms in the building, but the people in those places just walk them over to ours (and it had my firm name on it, so it's apparent where it should go). Meh, who knows? I've only ever had this sort of thing happen with Surepost or Smartpost, though.

              YMMV, but my local JCPenney was giving an additional 25% off all clearance prices. Ended up with some Stafford Prep chinos for ~$9, a JCP button-down plaid shirt for ~$9, and a Stafford sport coat (the loud brown plaid from this spring) for ~$27.

                this is a national promo for the holidays; if you use their CC you get add'l 20% off also.

                  When my Smartpost package disappeared, after a week or two, it resurfaced. It never showed delivered on USPS, but it showed that it reached the city it was supposed to be delivered in (which is in NY), and then took a hiatus to Puerto Rico. At that point, I called the company, scolded them for entrusting my package to USPS, and had them reship it. I remember them not sounding surprised.
