    Ordering shipping boxes from USPS.com

    I ordered 10 tube shaped boxes from them online. It says "usually arrives in 7-10 business days". It's been 3 weeks today and still haven't got them. Other times I've ordered the Flat Rate boxes at 9:30 at night and I received them the next day. Just wondering if anyone else has ordered boxes other than the Flat Rate ones and how long it took you to receive them.

    Even the flat rate boxes took two weeks to get to me earlier this fall/late summer - I'm not surprised, but it's disappointing. Don't you have to pay for the tube-shaped ones? I may contact customer support.

    Your postal carrier was fired after a youtube video surfaced of her driving across someone's lawn to deliver a package. Don't worry, a replacement carrier will bring your tubes shortly.

    Re: Ordering shipping boxes from USPS.com

    Back in the day when I posted on pbnation.com, a bunch of people there ordered hundreds of their free boxes just for the heck of it. Kids would build box forts and stuff. It was pretty amusing. I'm pretty sure they changed their rules because of it.

    No, all Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express Boxes and Envelopes are free. You only have to pay for the Ready Post boxes.

    I just ordered some smaller, rectangular boxes just to see if they ever show up.
