    I've been surprised how many times UPS and FedEx use the USPS for delivery of items I've bought on the intertubes.  Here, I'm talking about standard delivery - as opposed to overnight, although I've received overnights and 2-day deliveries via the USPS, too.

    The USPS parcel service (packages) even has tracking numbers now and that's something I've wanted them to do for years to match the tracking systems of FedEx and UPS.

    It simply gets down to this:  the USPS is more than competitive with UPS and FedEx for most deliveries and far, far less expensive.

      the employees are very helpful and polite!  I hate FedEx and UPS.  They're expensive and they have screwed up more deliveries for me than the postal service ever could.  My former Libertarian roommate who is pretty much a heavy set version of Gordon Gekko actually tried to tell me the majority of Americans like and trust FedEx more than the Postal Service.  I think that guy was just drinking too much of the Peter Schiff Kool Aid.
