SmartPost shipping method
« on: 05:35 PM - 09/13/12 »
Ok, so I busted the screen on my xim 3.  Million-in-one Rube Goldberg accident.  Anyways, I go online to order the edge and I select the SmartPost option.  Why?  It was $3 less.  "More efficient" FedEx claims.  Bullshiz!  I was stoked to see that it arrived at the FedEx facility in my city this morning and was in transit.... but not to my house.  All SmartPost means is that they hand it over to USPS instead of just putting it on the truck that runs the route by your house every day.  This means anywhere from 1 to 3 days extra time for it to get to you.  In my case 2 days, and through google maps I found that the package travels roughly 50 extra miles.  Efficiency, my @#$%. 

Just thought I would give y'all a heads up if you are about to order something.

I feel your pain. Newegg uses the UPS version of this on me. They also use the DHL version.

They ship a package from 1 hour north of me in central/north New Jersey to @#$% Maryland and hand it over to the post office.
