  • Does UPS provide service on Saturday and Sunday?

    Does UPS provide service on Saturday and Sunday?


    On weekends, UPS works Saturdays but not Sundays. UPS delivers UPS Worldwide Express®, UPS Next Day Air® Early, UPS Next Day Air and UPS 2nd Day Air® packages on Saturdays. Packages must be processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery. The shipper pays extra for Saturday Delivery. Note: If the shipper sends a UPS 2nd Day Air package on Thursday, it will be delivered on Monday – unless Saturday Delivery is specified. Pickup service is available for air and international packages on Saturday via a regular Saturday pickup, UPS On-Call Pickup® service or at retail outlets such as The UPS Store®. Please note that UPS Drop Boxes are not picked up on weekends. (For extremely urgent shipments, UPS Express Critical® service is available 365 days a year.)

    What if the package is at The UPS Store nearest to the destination. Can it be delivered on Saturday?

    Bruce 2/8/2014 9:51:24 PM
    Does, UPS Ground still get processed, through the weekend? Or, does it stay in whatever state it landed in on Friday? Thanks for any input. COMPASS GUY: There's no movement of packages on weekends, unless the package is processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery.

    Andrew Brasosky 3/1/2014 6:56:47 AM
    If ups is responsible for a standard ground shipment being delayed, will they deliver on a Saturday? COMPASS GUY: No, only air packages processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery are delivered. UPS Ground packages are only delivered on weekdays.

    Shirley Vogel 3/8/2014 8:42:11 AM
    According to your tracking system, my package from Home Decorators was supposed to be delivered yesterday, March 7, but was not. The UPS truck stopped outside, but no one came to the door and pkg was not delivered. Please advise/tell me why/and if it will arrive today, Sat March 8? Thank you, Shirley COMPASS GUY: Shirley, sorry that you had problems with your delivery. If your package isn't delivered on time, the shipper can request a claim. Only air packages that are processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery are delivered on Saturday.

    Kim 3/13/2014 11:23:10 AM
    If the package arrives at the UPS location in the destination city on Friday and is not to be delivered until Monday. Can the receiver go pick up the package from the UPS location on Saturday?

    Compass Guy 3/13/2014 12:40:46 PM
    Kim, I don't believe the UPS Customer Centers (attached to the UPS facility) are typically open on weekends. You can confirm the hours of operation for the center near you at Select "locations" and then de-select all options except UPS Customer Centers. This will give you the hours of operation, which vary from site to site.

    Question: If I take a package to the UPS terminal at the Little Rock airport on Saturday afternoon, can I ship it to Detroit Second Day and have it delivered on Tuesday. Thanks, Ed H.

    Fox 3/15/2014 9:49:11 AM
    ARRIVAL SCAN Mar-14-14, 13:14 PM, WEST SACRAMENTO, CA Will it be delivered today? I'm about 30 miles away. It looks like it's been processed, it just need to be delivered?

    Compass Guy 3/17/2014 7:38:11 AM
    Ed, UPS 2nd Day Air packages picked up or dropped off on Saturday will arrive on Tuesday. But I don't know if the Customer Center at the airport is open on Saturday afternoon. The UPS Store is typically open on Saturday if there is one in your area.

    Compass Guy 3/17/2014 7:39:58 AM
    Fox, no. When you track your package, if it doesn't say "Out for Delivery" then it is highly unlikely that your package is being delivered that day. Packages would leave the package center with the driver in the early morning hours.

    Mike 3/20/2014 5:57:19 AM
    I don't know the method that it was shipped, but I am expecting a package where UPS Tracking says 1 business day left as of 3/20 and a scheduled delivery date of Saturday 3/22. I don't know of UPS deliveries on Saturday, so is that right?

    Compass Guy 3/20/2014 7:56:35 AM
    Mike, although I don't know the particulars of your package, if the tracking system says it will arrive on Saturday, it should. UPS does deliver UPS Next Day Air and 2nd Day Air packages processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery. I suspect it is one of those, otherwise the tracking report would have said Monday delivery.

    CJ 3/21/2014 8:00:45 AM
    I ordered a package late Thursday night and selected Second Day Air. Does this mean that the package will get here on Saturday or Monday? By UPS ground, it was 3 days to be delivered to my state, so would Second Day Air mean it would get here faster?

    Compass Guy 3/21/2014 8:13:17 AM
    CJ, if the package was tendered to UPS on Thursday, a 2nd Day Air package would arrive on Monday. Unless you specified (and paid extra for) Saturday Delivery. But often when an order is placed online, the retailer does not tender the package to UPS until the next day. So, in that case, you're looking at a Tuesday delivery. If UPS Ground is three days from the retailer to your home, then 2nd Day Air should be one day faster. Hopefully, they will provide you a UPS tracking number and you can verify when it will arrive.

    Compass Guy 3/21/2014 8:45:51 AM
    Anth, no, I don't think so because Customer Centers adjacent to the UPS hubs are typically only open on weekdays. If you go to and select "Locations," you can find the operating hours of the nearest Customer Center.

    Chris 3/21/2014 2:32:32 PM
    If I ship next day air and drop the package off on Saturday, will it get there by Monday morning?

    Compass Guy 3/21/2014 3:14:58 PM
    Chris, yes, but you need to drop off the Next Day Air package at a place like The UPS Store that has a Saturday pickup. The UPS Drop Boxes are only picked up on weekdays. Packages placed in a box over the weekend won't be picked up by the driver until Monday.

    Michael 3/22/2014 12:34:20 AM
    I ordered a package Friday morning and it shipped on Friday afternoon with ups next day air. Will I get it on Saturday or have to wait till monday?

    Randy 3/22/2014 10:24:21 PM
    Hi, I shipped an extremely important package on Friday and paid through the nose for next day air Saturday delivery. Ups either lost or forgot the package, as it never even received an origin scan. If UPS can magically re-discover this package at the origin facility in Lafayette, La late Saturday night (if they are even open), when is the earliest it will arrive at its destination of Atlanta, GA?

    AR 3/23/2014 10:46:54 PM
    If I placed an order midnight on Friday, and I have it sent "UPS Expedited" (3-5 days); when should I be expecting it to arrive?

    Compass Guy 3/24/2014 9:43:10 AM
    Suzanne, although I don't know the particulars of your shipment, UPS packages that go out for delivery on any day, including Saturday, originate from a sorting facility -- not a The UPS Store location. If you have a tracking number, you can see when the package will be delivered at

    Compass Guy 3/24/2014 9:56:52 AM
    AR, it's difficult to determine exactly because the key date is not when you ordered something but when the retailer tendered the package to UPS. If you ordered it Friday night, it could be picked up by UPS either Saturday or Monday, depending on how fast they pick and pack what you ordered. If you have a tracking number, you can follow the progress at The tracking tool should provide an exact delivery date based on the origin and destination postal codes. UPS Worldwide Expedited is typically two to five days, depending on the distance traveled. But with a tracking number, you should see the exact delivery date.

    LJ 3/27/2014 7:18:54 PM
    if i get standard shipping, and i place my order on tuesday will i get my shipment by monday?

    Compass Guy 3/28/2014 8:12:20 AM
    LJ, delivery of UPS Ground packages depends on distance. So, if you use the Time and Cost Calculator at,, enter the origin and destination ZIP codes, it'll give you the exact date of delivery.

    DJ 3/28/2014 4:24:42 PM
    I ordered mine late Wednesday night and I had the two day shipment why isn't it here yet? lol. It says out for delivery.... Date and time 03-28-2014 04:12 and here it is 5:23...

    Tess 3/29/2014 9:49:59 AM
    My package was scheduled to arrive yesterday via Ground. It made it to the local UPS place, but I got a call early in the morning to confirm my address because they "couldn't find it" in the computer system, despite having delivered here before (and recently). I confirmed the address and told them where to find me, but the last update is from around 12:30 PM yesterday saying the problem was corrected and delivery was rescheduled -- with no rescheduling time actually specified. It didn't arrive yesterday evening. Is there a chance it will arrive today?

    Compass Guy 3/31/2014 7:54:31 AM
    DJ, although I don't know the particulars about your shipment, please remember that just because an item is ordered on a Wednesday night, that doesn't mean UPS has that package Wednesday. The retailer is probably packing and shipping that item on Thursday. So, if UPS picks it up on Thursday and it's shipped 2nd Day Air, it will arrive on Monday. (Saturday is an option but it costs more.)

    Compass Guy 3/31/2014 7:56:50 AM
    Tess, sorry there was a problem with your delivery. But chances are a UPS Ground package won't be delivered until the next business day, Monday in this case. Only air packages processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery are delivered on Saturday.

    Nick 4/5/2014 9:13:30 AM
    I ordered my package from GI Brick on Tuesday on regular service and it hasnt come yet, after a ups truck stopped at my house on friday it did not have my package.

    Ryan 4/5/2014 10:22:23 AM
    I ordered a package and the tracking info lists the Estimated Delivery as Saturday, 04/05/2014. Will it arrive today or is that incorrect?

    William 4/5/2014 10:54:03 AM
    To answer Kim's question, I too had an important package that arrived on Friday and requested to pick it up early on Monday. I still tried to pick it up on Saturday morning and was told it wasn't unloaded yet. It is frustrating to not be able to get a package that's 50 feet or less away. It was free ground shipping so that's the trade off I guess

    Compass Guy 4/7/2014 2:42:49 PM
    Ryan, without knowing the particulars of your shipment, if the tracking system says Saturday, it should arrive then.

    Compass Guy 4/7/2014 2:44:56 PM
    Nick, sorry you haven't received your package. Do you have a UPS tracking number beginning with 1Z? If so, you can track the package from the home page of The system will tell you when UPS received the package from GIB and when it will be delivered to you.

    Jessica 4/11/2014 7:49:30 AM
    Hi, knowing that my package wasn't specified for Saturday delivery and needs an adult signature, will I be able to go to the open ups center and pick it up from there with my id?

    Compass Guy 4/11/2014 7:58:37 AM
    Jessica, UPS Customer Centers usually are not open on Saturday. If the first attempt to deliver your package is Monday, and you're not home, follow the instructions on your UPS InfoNotice. One of your options will be to have the package held for pickup. You can check the hours of the UPS Customer Center at under the "Locations" tab.

    gandhi 4/11/2014 12:22:38 PM
    Hi, My package is not moving. I read on your website about what could be going on. It is scheduled to be delivered on saturday. If it is delayed, then it will be delivered monday (which will be too late). is there anyway I can pick it up friday evening/saturday morning from wherever it has landed? can i know what location is it expected to be friday evening and is pick up possibility? Thanks.

    Compass Guy 4/11/2014 12:33:25 PM
    Gandhi, I'm sorry you're having stress about this delivery. My suggestion is to call 1-800-PICK-UPS (press 0 to get to a live customer service rep) because he or she should be able to see the package's progress. It is unlikely that you'll be able to pick it up, though, since the Customer Centers are closed on weekends.

    Jason 4/11/2014 11:54:00 PM
    Hi, I ordered my package on Wednesday, April 9 from Amazon and it is shipped by UPS 2nd Day Air. My package is already at a neighboring city and says Departure Scan, 4/11/2014 at 7pm. What does Departure scan mean? It says that the scheduled delivery is on Monday, but would there be a chance it gets delivered tomorrow? Also I don't see it saying signature required anywhere, so I'm worried that the the package might just be left on the doorsteps since I will not be home on Monday. It's not a safe neighborhood for packages left outside, so would UPS deliver again the next day, or would it be left at a nearby UPS center?

    lois 4/12/2014 1:12:48 PM
    Packages are being stolen from front porches in my neighborhood. Can I request the package be put in the back yard hidden from plain sight?

    Andrew C 4/13/2014 11:09:06 PM
    I picked next day shipping and my package was shipped on Saturday afternoon. Will it be here monday?

    Compass Guy 4/14/2014 9:01:28 AM
    Lois, there are two ways to make this happen. Your UPS driver can put the instructions in the DIAD or you can sign up for UPS My Choice. It's free. And you can put your delivery instructions into the system. And, you will get an e-mail or text the day before your package will arrive. Sign up at

    Compass Guy 4/14/2014 9:08:08 AM
    Jason, if you ordered on Wednesday and the package was picked up by UPS on Thursday, your delivery date would be Monday. (Saturday is an option but costs more.) You might consider signing up for UPS My Choice if you receive packages at home. A free option with My Choice is to have packages held for pickup. Typically, the UPS driver will leave a package if it doesn't require a signature.

    mariah 4/17/2014 10:48:15 AM
    How long will my package take if it's coming all the way from California to Newburgh N.Y.?

    Compass Guy 4/17/2014 3:42:21 PM
    Mariah, to come up with an exact transit time, you'd need to enter the ZIP Codes for the origin and destination into the UPS Time and Cost Calculator (, but I suspect a UPS Ground package would take 5 business days, which doesn't include Saturday or Sunday. Obviously, you have other speed options to get it faster: one-, two- and three-day services. But UPS Ground is the least costly option. The calculator is available under the shipping tab at

    Jeremy 4/26/2014 5:05:45 AM
    My ups ground package is in my home town Friday night/Saturday morning. It's there any way to pick it up from the center or pay extra to have it delivered Saturday? It isn't scheduled for delivery until Monday, but it's only like 5 miles away in my town.

    Vedanshi 4/26/2014 11:05:19 AM
    Hey, my tracking status says PACKAGE DATA PROCESSESD BY BROKERAGE WAITING FOR CLEARANCE, and it has been like that since yesterday morning. I just wanted to know why it wasn't changing.

    megan 4/26/2014 2:31:40 PM
    I had a note on my door on friday (4-25). Will they try to deliver that again today (4-26) a saturday?

    keelan 4/26/2014 7:48:54 PM
    If someone ships me an item on Saturday with the next day air will it be here on Sunday or Monday?

    christina 4/27/2014 11:19:41 AM
    Yes I ordered from amazon on Friday 25th and it's a 2 day shipping and it told me expect date of delivery is on April 27th which today is that day but Sunday? ? If there's no ups on Sundays. .I expect my delivery on the 28th on Monday tomarrow is that correct? ??

    emanuel 4/27/2014 11:33:11 PM
    I am aware that ups does not work during Saturday's or Sunday's. But at what time does it start operating Monday mornings?

    Compass Guy 4/28/2014 8:24:35 AM
    Emanuel, UPS does provide pickups and deliveries on Saturdays but only for air and international shipments. First deliveries on Monday morning are as early as 8 a.m., although operations begin sorting packages in the wee hours of Monday.

    Compass Guy 4/28/2014 8:26:45 AM
    Christina, the key to your delivery is when Amazon tendered the package to UPS. If it was Friday night or Saturday morning, the package would arrive on Tuesday. Hopefully you have a tracking number and can check at

    Compass Guy 4/28/2014 8:29:10 AM
    Keelan, if UPS picked up the Next Day Air package on Saturday, it would arrive on Monday. But if the package was placed in a drop box on Saturday, UPS would pick that up on Monday and your delivery would be Tuesday. So, it depends on when the package was picked up, rather than when it was "shipped."

    Compass Guy 4/28/2014 8:31:22 AM
    Megan, if you had a UPS InfoNotice placed on your door on Friday, typically another attempt would be made Monday and then again Tuesday. After three delviery attempts, the package is sent back to the shipper, unless you make arrangements (which are outlined on that InfoNotice).

    Compass Guy 4/28/2014 8:34:16 AM
    Vedanshi, without knowing anything about the shipment, it sounds like Customs is waiting for a key piece of information before it clears the package. I would consider calling the UPS International Customer Service line at 1-800-782-7892. They'll ask for your UPS tracking number.

    Compass Guy 4/28/2014 8:35:48 AM
    Jeremy, I know it's frustrating to see your package so close to your home, but, no, only the shipper can pay for Saturday Delivery.

    Compass Guy 4/28/2014 8:38:31 AM
    Brandon, it all depends on when your new phone was tendered to UPS. If it was given to UPS on Friday night or Saturday morning, I would think that your 2nd Day Air package will arrive Tuesday, by end of day.

    tonia quarels 5/3/2014 3:36:28 PM
    I placed and order thurday at 10am... I will receive in 2 buisness day...had not recived package

    Celeste 5/5/2014 12:49:16 AM
    I placed my order Thursday night. Paid for 2day air shipment. It is Sunday night & my package says it is in Los Angeles already which is my city. It says delivery to my house will be tomorrow by end of day. What time is "end of day" ?

    Compass Guy 5/5/2014 8:23:38 AM
    Celeste, "end of day" means that before the driver ends his or her day and heads back to UPS, your package will be delivered. Depending on the driver's volume today, it could be as late as 7 p.m., but hopefully earlier.

    Compass Guy 5/5/2014 8:26:53 AM
    Tonia, if your order was picked, packed and shipped on Thursday, your 2nd Day Air package would arrive today, Monday. If your package was tendered to UPS on Friday, your 2nd Day Air package would arrive on Tuesday. If the retailer provided the tracking number, you should be able to find out exactly at

    Joe 5/5/2014 9:34:18 AM
    Do ups drivers get in special instructions on certain packages.? I would prefer that the company packaged the item then explained what exactly was in there.

    Compass Guy 5/5/2014 12:53:26 PM
    Joe, I probably don't have a great answer to your question. To my knowledge, there are no special instructions. Obviously, drivers can have delivery preferences stored in their hand-held device and the speed of delivery is based on the service chosen by the shipper. But no special handling instructions. All packages must be packed well enough to withstand the rigors of shipping. So, it does no good, for example, to write "Fragile" on a box. It has to be packed like it's fragile.

    Rebecca 5/9/2014 4:13:36 PM
    My package was supposed to be delivered on Friday but I had to step out and was not home, and online it says another attempt to deliver will be made. Will it be tomorrow (on Saturday) or will it be Monday?

    Compass Guy 5/9/2014 4:28:31 PM
    Rebecca, next attempt should be Monday.

    Adnan 5/10/2014 9:11:13 AM
    I saw this in a previous Compass newsletter, but my local UPS Store said it wasn't correct. Am I able to drop off UPS Ground packages at my UPS Store on Saturdays? (e.g. if its a 1-day delivery window on Ground) will my Ground package be scanned on Saturday, and get delivered on Monday?

    theresa 5/12/2014 6:35:05 AM
    I mailed my package on May 1st @ 11:26 am from SC to California, 5 days ground, because the worker at the local UPS store assured me it would get there in plenty of time for Mothers Day -- expected date of delivery Thursday, May 8th My package arrived in Vemon CA @ 1:59 pm a tuesday. One would expect a package 300 miles from its final destination could be delivered on time? No, its being delivered today MAY 12th 12 days from when i mailed it -- 8 business days, not 5 as guaranteed. What does your term Guaranteed actually mean? I am beyond angry. So do I deal with my local UPS store to get shipping refund?

    Compass Guy 5/12/2014 9:47:50 AM
    Adnan, there is no movement of Ground packages on weekends. Only business days. So, while you can drop your package off at The UPS Store on Saturday, the package won't enter the UPS system until Monday. So, a one-day ground package would arrive Tuesday. The only way to get delivery on Monday on a package dropped off on Saturday is to use UPS Next Day Air.

    Compass Guy 5/12/2014 9:50:56 AM
    Theresa, I'm very sorry you have had such a bad experience on Mothers Day. No package should take eight days to arrive. Yes, you have to have The UPS Store file a claim for that package because they are the official "shipper of record" in this case. So, while UPS issues the refund, not your store owner, it is The UPS Store that needs to file the claim on this.

    cortney 5/19/2014 12:26:13 PM
    Hello, I ordered something off of on Saturday and it got shipped on Monday (standard shipping). The place I got it from was Miami, Florida and I'm in Alvin, Texas. Just wondering your opinion on when it would get here? Could it get here on Wednesday? And would they have to fly it or would it be UPS ground? Thanks

    Compass Guy 5/19/2014 12:58:51 PM
    Cortney, I don't think it will get to you on Wednesday. It looks like Miami to Texas is either three days or four, depending on the ZIP Code. So, you're looking at Thursday or Friday. If you go to, there is a Time and Cost Calculator under the Shipping tab. I used a hypothetical 33145 for Miami and then if you plug in your ZIP Code, the UPS Ground transit time should appear. Three days would be Thurday and four days would be Friday.

    Kevin 5/22/2014 6:37:02 PM
    If my second day air package is picked up on Wednesday and scanned for the first time in the evening, will it be delivered on Saturday if it doesnt make it on Friday?

    Bill 5/23/2014 2:48:21 AM
    Hey I ordered A package that departured from Illinois on Monday the 19 it said it would be delivered by Saturday to my house in Los Angeles 90008 but it made it to Los Angeles at 10:30 thursday night it says ground shipping doesnt take place on Saturdays will it be delivered today as in Friday ?

    Compass Guy 5/23/2014 8:00:54 AM
    Kevin, I think if your package was picked up on Wednesday, it should arrive on Friday. There is delivery of UPS 2nd Day Air on Saturday but only if it was processed and labeled for Saturday. It sounds like it was not.

    Compass Guy 5/23/2014 8:04:19 AM
    Bill, can you track your package at No UPS Ground packages are delivered on Saturday, so hopefully it will arrive today. The tracking system should give you the date. If it's not today, Friday, May 23, the next delivery date will be Tuesday because of the Monday holiday.

    Dustin 5/24/2014 7:12:15 AM
    My package was supposed to arrive on Thursday the 22nd and was in my home state. Something happened and the package was mistakenly re-routed to Louisiana. The package finally re-arrived in my hometown this morning (Saturday) but I think it is regular ground shipping. The package was needed TODAY. Will they deliver it today since it is a UPS error or will I have to wait through the Memorial Holiday weekend and get it Tuesday? This is beyond frustrating.

    Compass Guy 5/27/2014 8:02:56 AM
    Dustin, sorry you've had a bad experience. There is no UPS Ground delivery on Saturday, so today --Tuesday, May 27 -- is the next delivery. But if your package was guaranteed to arrive on Thursday, which it sounds like it was, then you should have the shipper file a claim. That still doesn't get the package there when you wanted, so I apologize for that.

    Jerry 5/29/2014 8:34:10 PM
    If i ordered haz orm-d 3-5 day ground shipping on thursday night. It ships early friday when should i expect it?

    Jessica 5/30/2014 6:08:48 PM
    If my order shipped today ups, and I payed two day air will I get it on Tuesday?

    Doug 5/30/2014 8:22:54 PM
    Ordered a package online. On tracking, it says by end of day Friday. It is now 8:30pm on Friday night. Should I not expect this package to arrive tonight? If not, when?

    Kim 5/30/2014 9:34:23 PM
    Is there a way I can pay to get my package on Saturday to a friends? I ordered her a baby shower gift and did 2 day so she would get it today, but it says delivery of Monday.

    Compass Guy 6/2/2014 12:34:21 PM
    Jerry, the only way to know exactly what day your order will arrive is with a UPS Tracking number. (You can track at But a UPS Ground package picked up on Friday with a three-day commitment time would arrive on Wednesday.

    Compass Guy 6/2/2014 12:36:53 PM
    Jessica, unfortunately, the day you ordered something has little bearing on it. The key date is when the package is tendered to UPS. If your package was picked up on Friday, then UPS 2nd Day Air would arrive Tuesday.

    Compass Guy 6/2/2014 12:38:36 PM
    Doug, if the tracking system says your shipment will arrive Friday, it should. But 8:30 p.m. does seem kind of late. Packages not delivered on Friday would likely arrive on Monday because only packages processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery are delivered on Saturday.

    Compass Guy 6/2/2014 12:40:19 PM
    Kim, sorry your package is not arriving on Saturday as you intended. But unless the package is shipped (processed and labeled) for Saturday specifically, it will arrive on a weekday.

    bin 6/6/2014 1:50:56 PM
    my package were scheduled to arrive today(Friday), but this morning I checked and the status says A late UPS trailer arrival has caused a delay. We're adjusting plans to deliver your package as quickly as possible. does that mean ups will deliver tomorrow(Saturday) or Monday? Thanks.

    Sean 6/7/2014 3:56:38 AM
    The tracker said delivery Today, Than it came up with "Attempted Delivery" I never left home and my Doors wide open plus my door bell works fine. What does Attempted Delivery mean? There work day was up, It's time to go home? Or a drive by and attempted to stop but couldn't?

    matt 6/7/2014 5:54:37 AM
    I ordered some stuff on Tuesday and items were shipped on Wednesday, item were suppose to be delivered Friday ( amazing prime 2 day shipping blah blah ) but item did not arrive. Seeing how thisis ups fault for not delivering the item even though the tracking number said it was out for delivery, will this item still be delivered Saturday or was it move to Monday?

    Compass Guy 6/9/2014 8:47:09 AM
    Bin, Monday would be my best guess. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Compass Guy 6/9/2014 8:52:00 AM
    Sean, sorry you had that experience. Can't explain what happened as the driver should have used the doorbell, whether he or she was needing to obtain a signature or whether the package was left at your door. I would call UPS Customer Service at 1-800-PICK-UPS and have the tracking number handy.

    Compass Guy 6/9/2014 8:54:51 AM
    Matt, if your tracking inquiry said "Out for Delivery" on Friday, it seems odd that it wasn't delivered on Friday. But the next regular delivery day is Monday. On Saturday, only packages processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery are typically put on the trucks that day.

    Lashonda 6/11/2014 7:14:00 AM
    If I place an overnight delivery early Thursday Morning will the recipient received it's before or by Saturday at the latest?

    Compass Guy 6/11/2014 8:08:25 AM
    Lashonda, a Next Day Air package picked up on Thursday will arrive on Friday. You can drop off the package at The UPS Store or in a UPS Drop Box (if it meets the size requirements to fit into the box). Pickup times are typically late afternoon.

    Frank 6/14/2014 4:15:42 PM
    Can we get Saturday delivery with a ground shipment if it's timed properly and the extra $15 is paid, but otherwise would arrive on Friday? (We routinely ship on our UPS account from Florida to a Maine vacation lakehouse and know the schedule is reliable; we'd like the package to be delivered during the day Saturday so it's there when we arrive around 8 p.m. Saturday evening.)

    Compass Guy 6/16/2014 8:15:20 AM
    Frank, the best I can suggest is shipping your package Thursday via UPS 2nd Day Air for Saturday Delivery. No UPS Ground is delivered on Saturday. Have a wonderful time in Maine!

    Ryan 6/20/2014 7:58:06 AM
    When tracking a package of mine, it says it in transit and has one day left to get here, however, the estimated delivery is on monday. Would you happen to know why its estimated to be here on monday if UPS does in fact have saturday service?

    Compass Guy 6/20/2014 8:03:59 AM
    Ryan, yes, I can explain. We have Saturday deliveries of Next Day Air and 2nd Day Air packages but they have to be processed and labeled specifically for Saturday Delivery. It costs more. Without that option being requested by the shipper, normal deliveries are on weekdays.

    Hunter 6/28/2014 11:52:43 AM
    I ordered something on Monday and today Is Saturday, it was supposed to be delivered on Friday but there was a delay. I tracked my package and it said that it is IN my city, Will it be delivered to me today? (Saturday) is there anyway I can pick it up?

    riana 6/30/2014 12:32:27 AM
    My new phone says it's estimated to arrive on Monday June 30th @3 pm.. does ups just say 3 pm to give them extra time ? Or will it arrive a bit earlier .I'm really excited for my new device

    Compass Guy 6/30/2014 8:33:07 AM
    Hunter, sorry your package didn't arrive on Friday, but Saturday Delivery is limited to just those that are processed and labeled specifically for Saturday. And pickups are only on weekdays because the Customer Centers are closed on weekends. It should be there today (Monday).

    Compass Guy 6/30/2014 9:05:12 AM
    Riana, your phone is probably coming via UPS Next Day Air Saver and that has a 3 p.m. delivery commitment in most areas. Yes, it could arrive before 3 p.m.

    jill 7/3/2014 10:03:53 AM
    We have a package being mailed ups overnight today. Will this be delivered on 4th of july or Saturday?

    Compass Guy 7/3/2014 10:19:30 AM
    Jill, if the shipper sends the UPS Next Day Air package today (July 3) for Saturday Delivery, it will arrive Saturday. If the shipper did not request Saturday, it will arrive on Monday. There will be no deliveries on July 4.

    rachel 7/5/2014 10:21:43 AM
    If a package is at a local office and will not be delivered on saturday, can I go pick it up?

    Sylvia 7/11/2014 8:56:32 PM
    I have a packaged that was mailed from China on 7 July to Singapore (Opted for the 3 days delivery option). The package is now in Hong Kong since 10 July, with status: "The package is awaiting clearing agency review. The package is at the clearing agency awaiting final release." May I check how long will this normally take? Today is already 12 July 2014.

    Raechel 7/12/2014 12:59:30 PM
    I have a package coming from the US to the UK, Sent on Monday the 7/7/14, was told delivery would be Friday 7/11/14. It wasn't delivered on the Friday. Will it be delivered on the Saturday?

    Compass Guy 7/14/2014 8:23:54 AM
    Sylvia, I'm not sure about the turnaround time for customs in Hong Kong, but I suspect this is not standard practice. You might contact the shipper to make sure the correct export paperwork accompanied the package.

    Compass Guy 7/14/2014 8:26:45 AM
    Raechel, if you have the UPS tracking number, you can find out the status at It's unlikely your package will be delivered on a Saturday, though. We only deliver packages sent specifically for Saturday Delivery, so Monday is your best bet. But I would check the tracking system to make sure.

    Cassandra 7/14/2014 7:33:05 PM
    If I place an order on a weekend at 6pm that says ships Monday, does the after 2 next day shipping still apply?

    Compass Guy 7/15/2014 9:03:30 AM
    Cassandra, if your package is picked up by UPS on Monday, Next Day Air would arrive Tuesday and 2nd Day Air would arrive Wednesday. The clock starts when the package is tendered to UPS, so when you order is less important than when the item is picked up and put into the UPS delivery network.

    Lauren P. 7/18/2014 7:47:59 PM
    I am waiting on a delivery, it was originated late Thursday (7/17) night and picked up at 12:44am Friday (7/18) morning, estimated delivery says Tuesday (7/22) at the end of the day. Being shipped from Lexington, KY to Houston, TX. Last scan was Nashville, TN at 7:15pm today (7/18) Is it possible that it will be delivered before Tuesday 7/22, because that is just an estimate?

    Lela 7/20/2014 8:13:38 AM
    If I place an order on Friday and I picked the ups 2nd day air would it come on Monday or Tuesday?

    Lela 7/20/2014 3:00:08 PM
    I live in a trailer and I placed my order and I don't know if they will know which trailer it is and I'm scared they wont find it but when I bought my ipod and had fedex bring it they found it okay but I'm not sure if ups will. Do you think they will? Is that possible?

    Compass Guy 7/21/2014 8:19:26 AM
    Lauren, if you tracked your package and it said delivery would be Tuesday by end of the day, I think it's safe to assume it'll arrive Tuesday.

    Compass Guy 7/21/2014 8:25:31 AM
    Lela, when you placed the order has little to do with the delivery date. The key is when the retailer tenders that package to UPS. If the retailer had UPS pick it up on Saturday, then I think it's likely your package will arrive on Tuesday. But if UPS doesn't get the package until Monday, then the delivery would be Wednesday for 2nd Day Air. Also, I assume that if your home has a street address, the driver will be able to find you. They're usually familiar with the neighborhoods on their routes.

    Andrew Kearl 7/21/2014 11:05:41 AM
    I shipped a package on Wednesday, July 16th and expected delivery on that Friday. It is now expected to deliver on Monday. Can I get a refund? When I went to UPS shipping location, I requested the package arrive by July 20th in order to receive a refund. They told me that it would, now I'm in jeopardy of losing $140.00 plus the high cost of 2 day shipping when it didn't arrive.

    Compass Guy 7/21/2014 11:16:58 AM
    Andrew, yes, a claim can be filed for a late package. If you processed the shipment, you would file the claim. If The UPS Store processed the package (even though you paid), they have to file the claim for you because they would be the shipper of record for that package. Sorry you had this problem.

    michelle 8/9/2014 9:06:24 AM
    If I second day aired and it got shipped Thursday. Will it be here Saturday? And if it is at a local store for Saturday how do I know what store it will be coming to? Can I pick it up?

    Compass Guy 8/11/2014 9:20:18 AM
    Michelle, a UPS 2nd Day Air package shipped on Thursday would arrive on Monday, unless Saturday Delivery was specified. You can't pick a package up until you've requested "Hold for Pickup."

    Daikel 8/14/2014 7:54:07 PM
    If I did next day & my package is still bring processed will it get here Saturday

    Compass Guy 8/15/2014 7:50:18 AM
    Daikel, a Next Day Air package shipped on Friday will arrive on Monday unless the shipper processes and labels the package for Saturday Delivery.

    paul 8/15/2014 1:41:26 PM
    Today is Friday, 8/15/14. I live in Los Angeles, California. Mass Mutual in Hartford, CT is sending me a Next-Day Air today but they can not request Saturday delivery, only Next-Day Air. My question is if there is any way to make sure the package is delivered to me tomorrow despite the fact that it is not a Saturday delivery package.

    Compass Guy 8/15/2014 2:32:10 PM
    Paul, unfortunately, the only way to get your package delivered on Saturday is for the shipper to send it for Saturday Delivery. A regular Next Day Air package sent Friday won't get to you until Monday. I'm sorry I can't think of any other option on this.

    Arif 8/16/2014 10:19:36 AM
    Does ups move packages around on sunday even though they don't do delivery?

    Compass Guy 8/18/2014 8:33:11 AM
    Arif, Sundays are officially "rest" days and Sundays don't count as transit days, but feeder routes (tractor trailers) between cities do operate even on Sundays. For example, a Next Day Air package shipped on Saturday in Charlotte, NC, would probably be on a feeder to Atlanta on Sunday so it could be delivered on Monday morning.

    Jennifer M. 8/23/2014 2:42:08 AM
    Do UPS drop boxes always stay open? The retailer nearest to me, on its website, says that it is closed on saturdays and sundays. Or could they be referring to the pick up days? I'm a bit puzzled...

    Matt 8/23/2014 6:50:05 AM
    Why is it FedEx delivers all packages on Saturday without paying extra and UPS doesn't?

    Compass Guy 8/24/2014 1:06:15 PM
    Jennifer, you can put a package into a UPS drop boxes at any time, but the pickups are only on weekdays at the time posted on the drop box. So, if you put a package into one over the weekend, it will be picked up on Monday.

    Compass Guy 8/24/2014 1:20:31 PM
    Matt, I'm not an expert on FedEx policies but I think they offer home delivery on Saturday but not on Monday. So, they take off on Sunday and Monday. UPS is off on Saturday and Sunday. Of course, you can get Saturday Delivery from UPS, but it does cost extra.

    Catherine 8/28/2014 10:22:20 PM
    How accurate are the "expected delivery date" estimates? I was told a package I sent would be delivered by EOD Tuesday. It's now EOD Thursday and it is still in transit.

    Keith 8/29/2014 10:47:26 PM
    I had a package that was to be overnight and got a shipping notice that it left thursday and expected delivery for friday. It did not show up can I expect it to be delivered on saturday. If I pay for overnight I expect overnight.

    James Ledbetter 8/30/2014 2:54:11 AM
    Should I drop my package off on a Saturday, or just wait till Monday? From what I understand, it sounds like it will just sit at the store I drop it off at until Monday anyway. Thanks

    Alex 8/30/2014 12:19:31 PM
    Hi, I have a package that has arrived at my local UPS office on Friday, but will not be delivered until Tuesday because of the Labor Day weekend. My UPS customer center is not open on weekends, and probably isn't open on labor day either. I am a MyChoice free member, would I be able to pick up the package at my customer center? There is also a UPS Store near me, but I am not aware of that site's hours.

    Compass Guy 9/2/2014 10:37:41 AM
    Catherine, the "expected delivery date" should be very accurate. So, if there is a two-day delay, I would check with the shipper. Unless there was a weather problem (seems unlikely), it could be an address problem. If the package is just simply late, the shipper can file a claim.

    Compass Guy 9/2/2014 10:43:02 AM
    Keith, if you paid for overnight shipping, I agree it should arrive as scheduled. The shipper of the package would need to file a claim; recipients cannot. The only packages delivered on Saturday, though, are packages processed and labeled for Saturday. So, packages that have missed delivery on Friday aren't out for delivery again until the next business day (Tuesday, Sept. 2, in this case).

    Compass Guy 9/2/2014 10:48:13 AM
    James, you can ship air packages from The UPS Store on Saturday, but a ground package won't be put into the system until Monday. And drop boxes are picked up only on weekdays, so while you can drop it off, it won't be picked up until Monday.

    Compass Guy 9/2/2014 10:52:15 AM
    Alex, unfortunately, until you get your My Choice notification and you reroute your delivery to The UPS Store, you can't pick it up there.

    Tammy 9/17/2014 8:33:45 PM
    I preordered a phone that will be released this Friday with UPS expedited Next Day. Is it possible to pick my package up on Saturday from the ups store or will the package not be shipped until Monday. I am trying to find a way to have my package by Saturday if at all possible.

    Compass Guy 9/18/2014 7:55:43 AM
    Tammy, if the company you ordered the phone from tenders the package to UPS on Friday, your phone would arrive Monday unless they will ship it Next Day Air Saturday Delivery. Then we would be able to deliver it to you on Saturday. If not, the package will still be in transit over the weekend.

    Zack 9/18/2014 3:25:58 PM
    My package is being sent through Next Day Air Saver to my house in NJ. I just got the label for it today and it's being shipped out tomorow which is Friday. Will I get the package on Saturday? Thanks

    Compass Guy 9/18/2014 3:41:14 PM
    Zack, I think Monday by end of day. We offer a Saturday Delivery option for Early A.M. and Next Day Air, but I believe Next Day Air Saver is weekdays only, with residential deliveries made by end of day.

    Miley 9/19/2014 6:04:53 AM
    If the package made it to hometown on Friday will you be able to pick it up on that same Friday or no?

    Compass Guy 9/19/2014 7:49:11 AM
    Miley, no. To pick up the package at a UPS Customer Center, you have to request a Hold For Pickup. Otherwise, the person at the counter won't have it ready for pickup.

    trinh 9/19/2014 10:57:19 AM
    If my package says out for delivery in my city at 09/19/14 6:22am and now is nearly 9am when will my package arrive? Is there a set time where the delivery man has to meet?

    Compass Guy 9/19/2014 12:15:49 PM
    Trinh, yes, the driver does have delivery commitments to make. It all depends on the service level of the package. Typically, the commitment for UPS Next Day Air is 10:30, but for many services (such as UPS Ground or UPS 2nd Day Air), the commitment time is just end of day. And that means the end of the driver's day, no set time on the clock.

    Vince 9/22/2014 6:35:26 PM
    So I ordered my daughter something and picked the UPS 2nd Day Air, but it was Thursday night around 10, 11pm. When will it arrive?

    Compass Guy 9/23/2014 9:19:22 AM
    Vince, it all depends on when UPS gets the package from the retailer. Assuming that the retailer picked, packed and shipped the following day (Friday), your package would arrive Tuesday. If you received a tracking number from the retailer, you can enter that number at and get confirmation on the delivery date. Since today is Tuesday, it should say "Out for Delivery" if it is arriving today.

    Arden 9/27/2014 11:51:00 AM
    If a package was scheduled for delivery on Friday but was delayed due to a "late trailer" but still arrived at the local facility on Friday afternoon, would it be delivered on Saturday (even though it had not been slated with "Saturday delivery") or would it be delivered on Monday?

    Compass Guy 9/29/2014 9:18:12 AM
    Arden, I think it will be Monday.

    Jamie 10/10/2014 5:46:28 PM
    Lately almost all of my packages sent via UPS keep getting rescheduled for delivery. For instance a package was sent next day air on Thursday and I didn't get it until Tuesday and it was time sensitive. Now I have a really important package scheduled for Monday that I'm hoping will get here on Monday. Is there something I can do to find out why this keeps happening?

    Jared 10/10/2014 10:32:27 PM
    I think the "Held for pickup" option should be available on Saturdays.

    Nilesh 10/11/2014 12:38:54 PM
    My item was shipped Via UPS Expedited , tracking number says Destination scan on Saturday 11/10/2014 & schedule delivery is Wednesday, 15/10/2014 ...Why it was not updated to Monday ? can't they Deliver it on Monday ? Destination Location is Mauritius...

    maria 10/11/2014 7:23:37 PM
    I order a package but on my mailed says the following Delivery delay will be lifted by October 17 and after that date it will be deliver. Plus I payed extra to be deliver in 3 buissness day. When will it get to my house?

    Semir 10/12/2014 7:36:47 PM
    Hi, I placed an order for Next Day Air delivery on Thursday night 10/9/10 at 7pm. It was shipped 10/10/14 and the arrival scan at the neighboring city on Saturday 10/11/14 9:50 am and a destination scan at 10:30 am. However, it says they will deliver on Monday. I am wondering why the package was not labled as Saturday delivery? Is Saturday delivery not included in Next Day Air or did my package make it too late in the morning at the facility and the truck left already?

    Compass Guy 10/13/2014 9:09:43 AM
    Nilesh, you can call the UPS international help desk at 1-800-782-7892 and have the tracking number handy. They can probably explain the UPS Worldwide Expedited deliveries to Mauritius better than we can.

    Compass Guy 10/13/2014 9:12:08 AM
    Maria, I don't have enough information to help you with this, but if you will call UPS at 1-800-PICK-UPS with your tracking number, they should be able to explain the issue and hopefully the final delivery date.

    Compass Guy 10/13/2014 9:14:29 AM
    Semir, it sounds like your Next Day Air package was not processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery. So, if it wasn't, a Next Day Air package picked up on Friday would be delivered on Monday, typically by 10:30 a.m.

    Bob 10/17/2014 9:57:11 PM
    If a package sent 2nd day air and is" INCORRECTLY SORTED THE PACKAGE AT OUR FACILITY", and it is sitting in the nearest "facility", will it be delivered Saturday?

    alisiana 10/19/2014 4:00:43 PM
    If a package is sent out on saturday when will is arrive?

    Compass Guy 10/20/2014 2:50:16 PM
    Bob, I think the package will arrive on Monday because Saturdays are reserved for those packages that are processed and labeled for Saturday. Anything else -- even a missort -- comes the next business day, which would be Monday.

    Compass Guy 10/20/2014 2:56:48 PM
    Alisiana, unfortunately I would need more information to help you determine when the package will arrive. First, it depends if UPS receives the package on Saturday. If we do, and it's a Next Day Air package, you would receive it on Monday. But ground packages only move on weekdays. So, it would really ship on Monday and then it would depend on the distance to predict when it will arrive (it can be anywhere from one day to six days). If you have a tracking number, I would go to and track it. The system will be able to tell you the day it will arrive.

    Chris 10/23/2014 7:56:00 PM
    question about if no one is home during a delivery. will the package be taken to the local ups store closest to persons residence or to the warehouse where the person will have to go pick it up?

    Compass Guy 10/24/2014 1:01:31 PM
    Chris, if you are not home when the UPS driver attempts to deliver your package, he or she will leave a UPS InfoNotice on your door. The package will go back to the UPS facility at the end of the driver's route, but two more delivery attempts to your home will be made. The InfoNotice will provide you options to pick it up. There may come a time when your package would be automatically brought to the nearest location of The UPS Store, but currently that is not case. The concept is being tested in New York City and Chicago now, so the routine may change in the future.

    Selena 10/26/2014 2:11:06 PM
    I ordered something on Friday. I was suppose to be expecting it on Monday, but I recieved an email saying it would come today, Sunday, Oct.26. Will I be getting it today then? Or Monday? Im confused. I have to be at work but I need to be home to receive the package

    Compass Guy 10/27/2014 10:32:57 AM
    Selena, I don't blame you for being confused. UPS doesn't deliver packages on Sunday, so my guess is it'll arrive on Monday. If it's Next Day Air, it will typically arrive before 10:30 a.m. (to most ZIP Codes). If you receive packages at home fairly often, I'd encourage you to sign up for UPS My Choice. It's free for basic service, and you'll have more control over deliveries to your home so there should be less waiting around. is the place to sign up.

    Chris 10/29/2014 12:36:48 PM
    Often my package arrives in Houston on Friday and sits in your warehouse until delivery on Monday... What gives? UPS' unwillingness to delivery standard packages on Saturday is putting you at a disadvantage against your competitors.

    Chen 10/31/2014 12:57:12 PM
    My package track# states that it will be delivered Saturday to our business location that's closed on Saturday. If the ups guy just sticks the notice on the gate, it will definitely be lost and we would not know about it. Will it be redelivered on the next Monday?

    Compass Guy 10/31/2014 2:58:47 PM
    Chen, not to worry. The driver will make three delivery attempts. So, if the first attempt is Saturday and he or she is unable to deliver your package, the driver will return on Monday.

    Nand 11/1/2014 2:21:17 PM
    So I ordered a package on Monday and I've checked the tracking of my package and it has now arrived at my local carrier facility, one city over. Because I didn't pay for Saturday shipping I'm pretty sure it won't arrive until Monday. Is there anyway I could just go pick it up myself today at the carrier facility so I don't have to wait until Monday?

    Ivy 11/1/2014 3:35:06 PM
    I have a package that I have been tracking and it says that its in my area location, but it is Saturday. Will my package be delievered today?

    Joe 11/2/2014 12:54:03 AM
    I placed a order online thursday around 5pm and choose 1 day shipping. It was coming from about 90 miles away. It arrived at the facility on the 31st. Should it have been deliever on the 1st? I paid 15 bucks for 1 day shipping!

    C-Dubs 11/2/2014 5:08:10 AM
    Aloha! So I've been obsessing about UPS logistics while I await my iPhone... It sat in China for a day, and Friday afternoon it finally departed ANC for SDF. But now it's nowhere. Do 2-Day packages sometimes arrive at SDF and not get scanned on a Saturday morning? Also, does Worldport not operate on Saturday nights? And my last question: I asked for a hold at the HNL customer service desk even before it got on a plane because I work... Will it immediately hold then or have to go through the failed delivery attempt, wasting your gas and time? Mahalo!

    Compass Guy 11/3/2014 10:04:47 AM
    Nand, sorry you've had to wait for the package, but your instincts were correct. No packages arrive on Saturday accept those processed and labeled for Saturday.

    Compass Guy 11/3/2014 10:06:30 AM
    Ivy, no, I'm sorry but your package probably won't arrive until Monday. Only packages processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery are delivered.

    Compass Guy 11/3/2014 10:08:55 AM
    Joe, even though you ordered online on Thursday, the retailer would need to get that item picked, packed and shipped on Thursday for you to get it Friday. That's kind of unlikely. UPS probably received the shipment on Friday. Next Day Air on Friday gets delivered on the next business day: Monday. There is a Saturday option but it sounds like that wasn't the case here. Sorry you've had to wait.

    Compass Guy 11/3/2014 10:11:31 AM
    C-Dubs, it sounds like many people are picking up their smartphones at UPS rather than waiting on the delivery at home. Worldport is operating most of the time, but packages don't officially move on weekends outside of Next Day Air deliveries on Saturday or Monday.

    Byul 11/3/2014 5:50:09 PM
    If my mom mailed one day shipping from Hanford, CA on saturday morning, will it arrive in San Francisco, CA the following monday? If so, what time approximately? It is currently 4pm and nothing has been delivered :x

    Compass Guy 11/4/2014 7:43:59 AM
    Byul, I don't have enough information to tell you for sure, but here are a couple of scenarios. If your mom shipped something UPS Ground on Saturday, it probably is a one-day transit time, but Ground packages will not move until Monday. So, it would arrive Tuesday, by end of day. If your mom shipped the package Next Day Air on Saturday from a retail location, it would typically arrive by 10:30 a.m. Monday morning, or if she shipped it Next Day Air Saver, it would arrive Monday by end of day. Best suggestion is have your mom use the UPS tracking number at She should be able to determine the delivery time pretty closely.

    david 11/11/2014 9:23:44 AM
    will ups be making deliveries on 11-11-2014

    Compass Guy 11/11/2014 9:44:41 AM
    David, yes. Veterans Day is a regular pickup and delivery day at UPS. There are three upcoming days when there will be no pickups or deliveries: Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. After that, Memorial Day is the next UPS holiday.

    Kim 11/15/2014 8:58:17 AM
    If you order a package on one day does it count as a delivery day?

    Angela 11/15/2014 9:24:02 AM
    hi, i order a birthday gift for a friend this morning around 4 something, (November,2014) and i paid extra ($8) for Priority Mail, the company said they do weekend shipping. can you please tell me when will i receive my item. PS, the location i order my item was in new jersey and i'm located in Georgia. please help me. thanks :)

    Compass Guy 11/17/2014 9:47:40 AM
    Kim, probably not. The days in transit begin when UPS receives the package. For example, I ordered something on Friday morning but the retailer isn't planning to ship it until Tuesday. So, those four days between ordering and shipping have no bearing on the delivery. That said, some retailers pick, pack and ship on the same day as you order. So, the delivery date depends on the day UPS receives the package.

    Compass Guy 11/17/2014 9:50:44 AM
    Angela, it sounds like your package will be delivered by the U.S. Postal Service via Priority Mail. So, I can't predict that one. But remember, it's more important when your package is shipped than when it is ordered. Ordering has little to do with it...

    Duane 11/21/2014 1:55:33 PM
    Recently I had a package that was coming and I heard the truck slow down as it approached my house but when I went to the door the driver was past my place. It was a holiday and the office of the mobile home park I live in was closed. I got a message a short time later saying it was undeliverable because the business was closed. It was just a new driver that missed the address on my house. I received it the next via the post office. Needless to say I put up additional street numbers on my house even though in the 8 years I have lived here it had never happened before.

    Stephanie 11/22/2014 5:48:14 PM
    I have a package that was sent for Saturday dicey, today, but the tracking so says its in transit from the state it came from. It's now 3:45pm here, how likely is ur that I'll so receive it today?

    pondy 11/24/2014 12:57:52 AM
    I am ordering online and they don't have an option for Saturday delivery, and I spoke to their representative and they said they can't do that. can I pay the extra $15 for Saturday delivery?

    Compass Guy 11/24/2014 8:10:02 AM
    Stephanie, if you track a package and it doesn't say "out for delivery" then it's highly unlikely that your package will delivered that day by UPS. Especially if the tracking system shows that it's still in another state. Please check with the shipper to make sure it was sent for Saturday Delivery. If it was and didn't arrive, the shipper can file a claim.

    Compass Guy 11/24/2014 8:11:30 AM
    Pondy, no, I'm sorry you can't. Only the shipper can determine the shipping method for a package.

    Ethan 11/25/2014 3:26:08 PM
    I need a ride to work tomorrow. Can I hitch a ride with my local UPS driver? I'll spot him a $20

    Compass Guy 11/25/2014 4:10:42 PM
    Ethan, although your driver would be $20 richer, I think he'd quickly be out of a job. Pretty sure we have a no hitchhikers policy.

    Payton 11/26/2014 5:04:44 PM
    How do we know what time our packages should be delivered?

    Nichole 11/28/2014 8:17:12 AM
    If I placed an order on thanksgiving day and paid for one day shipment would my package be here on Saturday?

    Jay 11/28/2014 9:39:22 PM
    So, do you deliver on Sunday?

    Matt 11/28/2014 10:00:06 PM
    I had a package sent to me next day air on Wednesday November 26th. I have not received it thus far on Friday November 28th. Will I receive it on Saturday November 29th? I do not have a tracking number.

    tara white 11/29/2014 9:47:46 PM
    So if a package was sent out on saturday for next day air saver there's no way that i can receive it sunday? like they don't make exceptions if the item is marked urgent?

    Compass Guy 12/1/2014 10:09:21 AM
    Payton, it's impossible to tell you exactly what time a package will be delivered, but UPS Ground packages are typically delivered in the afternoon (by the end of your driver's day). Of course, some services have delivery times: Next Day Air is typically by 10:30 a.m. and Early A.M. is by typically 8 or 8:30 a.m.

    Compass Guy 12/1/2014 10:11:01 AM
    Nichole, my guess is your package will arrive today (Monday). UPS probably received the package on Friday (although I have no way of knowing that) and the next business day is Monday.

    Compass Guy 12/1/2014 10:11:35 AM
    Jay, no, there are no UPS deliveries on Sunday.

    Compass Guy 12/1/2014 10:13:49 AM
    Matt, only packages expressly processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery are delivered on Saturday. But it sounds like Friday was the correct day, so the shipper needs to inquire.

    Compass Guy 12/1/2014 10:15:53 AM
    Tara, no, there are no exceptions for anything written on the box. It's all based on the label so a Next Day Air Saver package picked up on Saturday would be delivered by end of day Monday.

    wg 12/2/2014 6:58:37 PM
    @Compass Guy ... there is no movement of Ground packages on weekends.. Meaning what? That on saturdays precisely at 00:01 all long run trucks stop wherever they are and do not start moving again until monday 00:01? Really?

    Compass Guy 12/3/2014 2:00:59 PM
    WG, sorry to be confusing. Trucks obviously do not stop in their tracks. What I meant was weekends do not count as transit days for a UPS Ground shipment. So, if you have a ground shipment that takes three days and it is picked up on Thursday, the three transit days are Friday, Monday and Tuesday. Saturday and Sunday do not count in the formula. But, you're right, a truck going from A to B on a Friday night will complete its run, regardless of the time of day.

    Pei 12/5/2014 2:45:22 AM
    My parcel suppose to deliver by 5 Dec, but now the tracking shown delayed. Meaning? When can I receive my parcel? I need it for my boy birthday on 8 Dec.

    Compass Guy 12/5/2014 8:01:10 AM
    Pei, sorry you're having this issue. I suspect there are multiple reasons why a package gets delayed, including weather, a missort or a late-arriving plane. If you call Customer Service at 1-800-742-5877, they might be able to tell you or just keep tracking it online. If the gift doesn't arrive Dec. 5, Monday would be the next delivery day. It won't be on the truck Saturday because only Saturday Delivery packages are out for delivery then.

    CMofAC 12/11/2014 12:18:12 PM
    I work at a museum that is closed to the public on Mondays. However, our offices are still open. When we've been expecting a package we will often track it online. We have noticed the tracking indicates the business is closed but several hours later we will see UPS deliver to neighboring businesses. Is there any way we can change this so that we can accept deliveries on Mondays?

    Compass Guy 12/11/2014 1:38:53 PM
    Yes, if the shipping manager or someone who has contact with the UPS driver will tell him or her of the situation, the driver should be able to get this rectified for you. If the receiving area is open, it should not matter to UPS if the museum is open to the public or not.

    Manny 12/12/2014 10:23:44 PM
    If my package is to be delivered on Monday, but at the location and since it is the holidays will ups deliver on Saturdays?

    Jenn 12/12/2014 10:32:47 PM
    It says that the package's next scheduled event was supposed to be at 10 am on 12/12 and that its supposed to arrive by the end of today but it haasn't arrived yet (its 8:32 pm right now.) Does UPS have night shifts? Or does "end of today" mean before 5 pm? Thanks

    Julian S 12/13/2014 10:08:16 AM
    hi, i ordered a package to be delivered yesterday friday 12, but failed the first attempt. do you make second attempts on saturdays? im looking at my order no. on your page and found out that is on the way to deliver, but on the online support chat i was told that it wasnt like that. can u make it clear for me please? thank you

    Chad 12/13/2014 11:35:52 AM
    sooo what im guessing my package will not come in today cause i ordered a package and it said dec 9-13 and today is the lasty day for it to come

    Compass Guy 12/15/2014 10:02:55 AM
    Chad, I hope you have a UPS tracking number. If you do, it should tell you the exact date of arrival. If you don't, maybe the shipper could assist you.

    Anshu 12/19/2014 4:52:24 PM
    Hi, I ordered a package Friday evening and selected 2 day air shipping. Can it ship by tuesday?

    Steff 12/19/2014 11:05:37 PM
    I placed an order Thursday but it wasn't prepared till Friday night and it's next day air. Ups hasn't picked it up yet. When should I expect my package.

    Diana 12/22/2014 11:31:19 AM
    I odered a iphone last thursday the 18 and they told me it would be 3 day do u know when it will come im in milbridge maine

    Compass Guy 12/23/2014 9:37:33 AM
    Steff, the package should arrive one business day after UPS picks up the package. So, if it was picked up on Monday, it should arrive today (Tuesday) via Next Day Air.

    Compass Guy 12/23/2014 9:39:15 AM
    If the package was picked up on Friday by UPS and the transit time is three days, it should arrive on Wednesday, Dec. 24. Hopefully you have a tracking number and can check on the status at

    Claudio 12/23/2014 12:11:21 PM
    Hi, my package was origin scanned on the 19th of December and shipped from NY,NY to El Paso, TX and it was shipped 2nd day air and I supposed it would arrive today since on the tracking info it has 2 destination scans one on Monday and another today at 4:00am so I'm just wondering if it will arrive today? And also I do not have a scheduled delivery nor does it say how much my package weighs.. Thank you

    Compass Guy 12/23/2014 12:17:56 PM
    Claudio, you're correct. A 2nd Day Air package shipped Friday, 12/19, should arrive today (Tuesday, 12/23). When you track the package, it should tell you the progress of the package delivery at the top of that tracking screen. And it should also say "Out for Delivery." If it doesn't, you need to contact UPS Customer Service at 1-800-PICK-UPS (742-5877). Be sure to have your tracking number handy.

    Walter 1/3/2015 8:34:41 AM
    I ordered sonething online Thursday afternoon. I paid for next day delivery. Will it be here Saturday?

    Katie 1/3/2015 12:21:35 PM
    Hello. My cousin sent a package with regular standard shipping on Tuesday 12/31/14 and I still have not gotten it. Today is 1/3/15 how long does it take? I should have gotten my package by now.

    google lover 1/5/2015 2:16:01 PM
    how many day will it take from Friday if it said 6-9 days

    Compass Guy 1/5/2015 2:22:42 PM
    Walter, the key to your question is not when you ordered the item but when the retailer picked, packed and shipped it with UPS. If the retailer tendered your package to UPS on Friday, it would arrive Monday (unless you paid for Saturday Delivery). It's next business day delivery typically.

    Compass Guy 1/5/2015 2:25:45 PM
    Katie, UPS Ground deliveries are based on distance. So, it can take anywhere from one to six days, depending on the origin and destination ZIP codes. But with the holiday, your package may not have entered the UPS system until Friday. So, Monday would be a one-day delivery; Tuesday would be a two-day delivery, etc. If you have a tracking number, you can find out for sure at

    Compass Guy 1/5/2015 2:29:34 PM
    Google Lover, I don't think UPS told you 6-9 days. UPS Ground packages are typically delivered in one to six days, based on origin and destination ZIP codes. So, it depends on when UPS gets the package. But a six-day delivery commitment (Florida to Oregon, say) from a Friday would be the following Monday. You only count the business days (not weekends). There's no ground package movements on weekends.

    Graham 1/17/2015 11:36:59 PM
    I order a textbook for school in the 15th I paid for 2 day shipping it had arrived at a ups center on the 15 and was being shipped out of that center mind you it is only coming from pa to wv it is now the 18th and has made it to ky and is now in oh when should I expect this package as to my class starts Monday and I need this in just unsure with this shipping and why it hadn't arrjved yet

    Compass Guy 1/19/2015 8:20:03 AM
    Graham, sorry for the confusion. A 2nd Day Air package shipped on Thursday, Jan. 15, would arrive on Monday, Jan. 19 (unless the shipper processed and labeled the package for Saturday Delivery). All these commitment times are based on business days, Monday-Friday.

    Adam 2/21/2015 10:17:54 AM
    I have a package that I don't remember ever paying an extra $15 to be delivered on Saturday. But when I track my delivery it says that it is at my local post office and my estimated delivery time is today (which is a Saturday). I'm not complaining or anything but is the Saturday delivery a default when you order from a site? And if it says it will be delivered on a Saturday, is this accurate? Might be a dumb question but I'm just wondering. Thank you.

    Jess 2/21/2015 7:31:35 PM
    I have a time sensitive package that I paid extra for a Saturday delivery, the tracking page says it's on time for delivery today but hasn't moved from Louisville KY and I'm in NJ. Can I assume that the package will arrive Monday? Why hasn't a reason for delayed delivery been posted on the tracking page? It's frustrating to pay extra for a service and be left hanging on when delivery will occur.

    Compass Guy 2/23/2015 9:38:35 AM
    Adam, your question is a good one. Your package won't be delivered by UPS on Saturday unless you paid for Saturday Delivery. It sounds like final delivery is going to be made by the U.S. Postal Service. Some online retailers select that option.

    Compass Guy 2/23/2015 9:41:33 AM
    Jess, sorry about your delivery issue. Usually the tracking system would explain if there was a delivery delay . If you paid extra for Saturday Delivery and it doesn't arrive on Saturday -- and it's not delayed by weather -- the shipper can file a claim on that package.

    Spencer 3/5/2015 6:19:34 AM
    I ordered a package on Tuesday and it has a 3 day express shipping order will it get here on Friday

    Compass Guy 3/5/2015 8:20:07 AM
    Spencer, if the package was tendered to UPS on Tuesday, then I would expect it would arrive Friday with a three-day commitment. But often times, the retailer doesn't pick, pack and ship on the same day as the order is placed. So, if UPS doesn't get the package until Wednesday, a three-day transit time would mean Monday delivery. If they can provide you a UPS tracking number, you can be certain by tracking it at the home page.

    gio 3/7/2015 10:07:42 AM
    Hello , mr, compass guy I got a package that says out for delivery and today is a saturday I was wondering if I will get it today? Oh and the shipoing says "USPS priority mai"

    john 3/7/2015 10:54:11 AM
    My package was met to be here yesterday but had gotten pushe back due to weather will it be here today

    Amanda 3/8/2015 4:56:57 PM
    I ordered something on Feb.25. It was supposed to be here March 4th. It got delayed to the 6th because of weather. It still has not gotten here. It says it is in Louisville, Kentucky which is around where I live so when should it be here?

    Compass Guy 3/9/2015 9:15:39 AM
    Gio, it sounds like your package must have been shipped using UPS SurePost where the USPS makes the final delivery to your house. Saturday would have been an option, but if not Saturday, then Monday. The UPS tracking number would help, but the final delivery day is just our best estimate since it is not being delivered by UPS.

    Compass Guy 3/9/2015 9:17:28 AM
    John, if your package was not delivered Friday due to weather delays, it will probably be Monday at the earliest. Saturday Delivery is reserved for air packages processed and labeled for Saturday. I'd recommend you keep tracking the progress at

    Compass Guy 3/9/2015 9:19:57 AM
    Amanda, without the tracking number, I can't tell when the package will arrive. But if you track the package at today, it will typically arrive today if it says "out for delivery."

    steve 3/21/2015 5:23:00 PM
    Do you ship on Saturdays?

    Compass Guy 3/23/2015 9:06:43 AM
    Steve, yes, you can ship a package on Saturday. If it's a Next Day Air package, it would arrive on Monday. You can either call for pickup or drop it off at a nearby The UPS Store location. (Drop boxes are picked up on weekdays only.) Most packages are not moving within the UPS system on weekends. Transit days are weekdays. So, if you a ship a UPS Ground package on Thursday, and the transit time is three days, it will typically arrive Tuesday. The transit days are Friday, Monday and Tuesday.

    Eric 3/30/2015 5:44:27 AM
    Hey I ordered a package on Thursday night and it got shipped Friday 2 day priority mail the expected day is today but it still says its in Arizona and in Maryland when will it come ?

    Compass Guy 3/30/2015 8:04:46 AM
    Eric, a package shipped UPS 2nd Day Air on Friday would arrive on Tuesday. But you mention 2-day priority mail in your question. Priority Mail would come via the U.S. Postal Service. If you have a UPS tracking number, I'd keep checking at

    AssassinMan_YT 4/9/2015 5:11:24 PM
    I ordered a package from the Jeff Dunham store and it is about a 3 ft long package and I got UPS ground. How long does it usually take to ship if I ordered it on Tuesday April 7, 2015?

    Compass Guy 4/10/2015 7:56:06 AM
    YT, there are several factors. Even though you ordered it Tuesday, we don't know when Jeff Dunham shipped the package with UPS. Assuming it was shipped Wednesday, it typically takes 1-5 business days, depending on the origin and destination ZIP Codes. If you don't have a UPS Tracking Number (which will typically start with 1Z), you can check the Time and Cost Calculator (under the Shipping tab at Plug in the origin and destination ZIP Codes, and you will see how many transit days are required for UPS Ground. If they shipped Wednesday, and it is a two-day transit time, you'd have your package today. If it's a three-day transit time, it'd be Monday. There are no UPS Ground deliveries on weekends.

    Chad 4/10/2015 8:54:42 PM
    It looks like my package arrived in my city today (Friday), but, because it is not set for Saturday delivery, it will sit until Monday. Can I pick the package up myself on Saturday?

    Monica 4/13/2015 1:42:00 AM
    So I order something and the ups is gonna deliver my package but I wanna know by when will I receive the package if I ordered it on Sunday April 12.

    Compass Guy 4/13/2015 2:36:09 PM
    Chad, no, I'm sorry you can't. Typically the Customer Centers where you would pick up packages are closed on weekends. Also, the package has to be held for pickup at the center. The person at the counter won't have access to all the packages in the hub. Only those that have been specifically held. Monday is the only option unfortunately.

    Compass Guy 4/13/2015 2:39:25 PM
    Monica, when you get your order confirmation from the retailer, hopefully they will include a UPS tracking number. With that, you can visit and enter that number to get all the details. Delivery depends on the service you selected, the day when the retailer tenders the package to UPS, and, if it is a UPS Ground package, the distance that package is traveling.

    John 4/17/2015 11:49:52 PM
    I ordered package from Amazon for 2 day shipping. Ordered on Wed April 15 and UPS tracking number says it will delivered by 8 pm Friday April 17. It's now past 10.30 pm and tracking number still shows out for delivery. What's going on? When do you think the item will be delivered?

    Compass Guy 4/20/2015 10:32:39 AM
    John, if you haven't already, I would call customer service at 1-800-PICK-UPS. Typically when the tracking system says a package is "out for delivery," that is the day you receive it. Since you didn't, my guess is Monday but I would call to confirm.

    Mariana 4/24/2015 12:05:50 PM
    What holiday is today in San Antonio Tx? The tracking order says it had been rescheduled due to holidays closures.. Will it come later today?, in the holidays you don't deliver doesn't say anything about april 24; Or my package will arrive until Monday?

    Compass Guy 4/24/2015 12:28:30 PM
    Mariana, I wasn't aware of any holiday for April 24, so I used Google. Apparently, today is Fiesta San Jacinto in San Antonio, Texas, and the city offices are closed. Maybe there are lots of businesses closed today also. But the next package delivery attempt after Friday typically would be Monday.

    Justin 4/25/2015 11:28:48 PM
    I had purchased an item on Thursday evening (after business hours). I paid for overnight shipping, figuring the order would be processed on Friday and be shipped out and delivered on Saturday. The package was shipped out Friday evening from Georgia, and made it to the local delivery center prior to 8am on Saturday morning. However, it was not delivered despite paying the extra for overnight shipping. Can you please tell me why this is the case?

    Compass Guy 4/27/2015 8:51:20 AM
    Justin, I probably can. A UPS Next Day Air package shipped Friday will be delivered the next business day, Monday. You can have the Next Day Air package delivered on Saturday, but it has to be processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery (and it costs more).

    Alonso 5/7/2015 10:33:20 PM
    The seller gave me the tracking number thursday night, haven't been shipped yet. The item is in New York and the destination is also New York. The service is UPS Ground, should I receive it Friday? When the time map says 1 day, its 1 day from when the package ships or when they sent me the tracking info? Do you think I should contact the shipper and ask him to Saturday Delivery or is it too late?

    Compass Guy 5/8/2015 7:54:06 AM
    Alonso, within New York, UPS Ground will be a next business day delivery. So, if the shipper did get it to UPS on Thursday, you'd have it Friday. If it doesn't ship until Friday, though, it won't arrive until Monday. No UPS Ground on weekends. Saturday Delivery would be an option for Next Day Air shipped on Friday. But it is considerably higher in price. If the shipper hasn't shipped it, then it's worth asking.

    Tiffany 5/8/2015 9:08:48 AM
    I paid for Next Day Air, the package was picked up on Thursday, and started it's motion to be delivered, I needed this package before 11:00 am. I was notified that there was a late flight that cause my package to be delayed and now I will not be receiving it until after noon. I have no way to wait for it, as it is a signature required package. What are my options, I can't wait until Monday. Could I pick it up from the UPS store on Saturday?

    Compass Guy 5/8/2015 9:25:41 AM
    Tiffany, sorry you're having this issue. If you call customer service at 1-800-742-5877 (1-800-PICK-UPS), I think you can get the package delivered to The UPS Store since you won't be home to sign for the package. You might also consider joining UPS My Choice so that you could do this via e-mail when you receive your delivery alert. The basic membership is free. That won't help you today, but for future deliveries.

    jon 5/15/2015 11:05:02 AM
    I ordered a package that was suppose to take 2 days to come with UPS dose it take 3?

    Compass Guy 5/15/2015 12:19:51 PM
    Jon, if you ordered two-day shipping, it should take two days. However, the clock starts once UPS has the package. So, if the retailer takes a day to pick, pack and ship and it's two more days for delivery, you could be looking at three days total. And if your package was shipped on a Friday, it won't arrive until Tuesday via 2nd Day Air because it's two business days.

    jon 5/15/2015 1:14:15 PM
    How do I track it ?

    Compass Guy 5/15/2015 1:24:55 PM
    Jon, if the retailer gave you the UPS tracking number (which usually starts with 1Z), go to There's a link to the site at the very top of this page. In the upper left of the homepage, you enter that number and it will show you the progress of your package and the delivery date. If you don't have this number, though, you'll need to contact the retailer because you have to have the tracking number.

    ben 5/15/2015 1:47:17 PM
    I ordered next day air on Thursday and it hasn't arrived today (Friday). Will I get it tomorrow on Saturday?

    Compass Guy 5/15/2015 1:54:21 PM
    Ben, if the retailer got the package to UPS on Thursday, it should have arrived today (Friday). However, if the retailer tendered the package to UPS on Friday (which is likely), it will arrive Monday. It could arrive on Saturday but only if the shipper requests Saturday Delivery. A normal Next Day Air package would arrive the next business day or Monday (when shipped on Friday).

    Monique 5/23/2015 10:23:19 PM
    If it says my delivery date is 5/27 but it's literally in the next city over at the post office. Can I just go pick it up instead of waiting 4days to receive it?

    Compass Guy 5/26/2015 8:50:37 AM
    Monique, if your package is at a nearby post office, then it's not going to be delivered by UPS. You might be able to pick it up there, but to pick up a package at UPS, it needs to be "held for pickup" so the Customer Center clerk has ready access to it.

    MDavid 5/29/2015 6:04:18 PM
    Hi there! We ordered new phones Next Day Air on Thursday and the phone company sent an Email saying they'd shipped early this morning but on the UPS website it's saying they have still yet to ship.. What is the chance they will get here on Friday and also would they be delivered on Saturday otherwise?

    Elle 5/30/2015 10:19:45 AM
    My mother sent a package from Texas to me in California on Tuesday. Ups said it would be here in 3-4 days. It was not delivered on Friday so will it be delivered today on Saturday?

    Rachel 5/30/2015 9:21:27 PM
    There is a UPS store open near me on Sunday. If I send a package out on Sunday for next day delivery can it get there by close of business on Monday? It's only going to a city 2 hours away.

    If I ordered a first class package on Saturday when will if arrive because I won't be in town for three days during the week

    MDavid, I suspect your phones will arrive today, June 1. Next Day Air packages sent on Friday will arrive Monday, unless the shipper requested Saturday Delivery (which costs extra).

    Compass Guy 6/1/2015 7:45:54 AM
    Elle, it sounds like your mother sent the package UPS Ground, so it will arrive on a weekday. A four-day transit time from Tuesday is the following Monday.

    Compass Guy 6/1/2015 7:47:37 AM
    Rachel, I don't think so. Had you shipped it on Saturday, it may have arrived on Monday, but The UPS Store packages processed on Sunday will be picked up on Monday. So, it'll likely be Tuesday before the package is delivered.

    Angela, it sounds like you may be shipping this with the U.S. Postal Service since they have First Class. If it is coming via UPS, see if the shipper can get you the tracking number, and with that, you will be able to visit and find out exactly what day it will arrive. The driver will attempt to deliver three times (if signature is required), or the driver will leave it at your home (if no signature was requested and you live in a driver-release area).

    I am having my package shipped UPS ground but I was wondering if I could pick it up at a UPS store on a Saturday instead of waiting the following Monday.

    I'm literally like two miles away from the UPS shipping distribution center and my package is in my hometown. Will I still have to wait until Monday to pick it up, or could I call in to request my package? I know on the UPS site, it lets me select the UPS store (not CC) as a location I can pick up packages.

    I recieved an order from Amazon the didn't have all the parts and needs to be picked up by UPS. The return label says it will be picked up on the next business day. That was on Friday so I'm not sure if that means today(Saturday) or Monday

    Compass Guy 10/12/2015 1:55:33 PM
    Jasmine, the only way to pick up a package at The UPS Store is for you to redirect delivery from your home to that location. Otherwise, I don't think the package will ever be at The UPS Store. You can reroute packages by signing up for UPS My Choice at

    Dirk, usually the UPS Customer Counters are not open on weekends, so even though it's nearby, you can't pick up a package until it's "Held for Pickup" and then the counter will have hours Monday-Friday.

    Compass Guy 10/12/2015 1:59:04 PM
    Sue, business days are Monday-Friday. So, in your case, it should be picked up Monday.

    Justin 11/1/2015 4:06:39 PM
    So my package shipped using UPS Ground on Wednesday10/28/15, However at the top of the tracking info it says next event is scheduled for Monday 11/2/15. The expected delivery date is Tuesday 11/3/15. Now my question to you is why am I not receiving Info till the day before? Is there something wrong with it or is this normal for UPS Ground to not update till day before?

    Compass Guy 11/2/2015 8:46:44 AM
    Justin, I'm not positive since I can't see what you are seeing at but the status wouldn't change on a weekend. Saturday and Sunday are not transit days. But if you find the package isn't moving today, I would be inclined to contact UPS Customer Service. You can call, send an e-mail or ask via Live Chat. Go to

    If my package ships today Wed and it's 3 day shipping will it be here Friday??? Or will it be Saturday??? Its 3 day air from what the company's website says

    Compass Guy 11/4/2015 8:54:54 AM
    Tim, if your package is shipped Wednesday and it's a three-day transit time, I think it will arrive Monday. One-day deliveries are made Thursday, two-day deliveries arrive Friday and three-day deliveries arrive Monday because on Saturday, UPS delivers only Next Day Air and 2nd Day Air packages specifically processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery. UPS Ground packages only get delivered on weekdays.

    Mike 11/6/2015 9:35:05 AM
    If I drop off a next day air package on Saturday will it deliver Monday?

    Compass Guy 11/6/2015 9:57:47 AM
    Mike, if you take your Next Day Air package to a location of The UPS Store or another retail outlet with a Saturday pickup, yes, it will be delivered Monday. But do not put your package in a UPS Drop Box on Saturday. The boxes only get picked up on weekdays.
