    I purchased my B9930 from Quinn a few years ago. The purchase was contingent on Quinn receiving my trade in in good shape, so the exact ship date depended on when he received the trade. He received my trade, and proceeded to ship the B9930 to me. I got a notice that it would arrive via FedEx on Saturday.

    The problem is that we were to be away that weekend and I didn't want the package ($$$$) sitting out there all weekend.

    So, I contacted FedEx and arranged to have them hold it at their facility (about 30 minutes from home) until Monday, no problem. I also set up an account, and now, every time I receive a FedEx package I get phone and text messages before and after delivery.

    I had my neighbor still watch for the package, but it worked out really well having FedEx hold it until Monday.

    i just used the calculate function on usps and it looks like it's been changed - for the better - each shipping option appeared with an associated price.

    The website must be different in Colorado. I just tried an imaginary shipment of an 8-oz package and as before there is no first class option let alone a media mail option - just priority and priority express.
    After all these years, what do you practice?
