Small ray of Hope for people wishing for saturday delivery(sprint peeps)

so i figured id see what i could do...

i called fedEX-1800gofedex.. and asked them to HOL(hold at location) so i could pick it up because my package didnt have saturday delivery on it

the guy said its no problem, BUT they typically have to make 1 attempt to deliver first, but its not uncommon if a call is made to get the to look for it.. he told me, "itd basicallt have to be someone whos bored around the warehouse, to go look for it"..

he said that since their technically not for delvery till tuesday that theyll sit with all the other packages slated for then, so its kind of a hassle for them.. but he said again, "its not unheard of, if you get the right person, and are cool about the whole thing"


i doubt its gonna happen, but i had it held anyways, just to be able to try it..... this was inspired by seeing that it left the louisville,KY warehouse at 8tonight... and because i know so mnay more peeps would have theirs tomorrow if we just had saturady delivery option

just wanted to give some people some hope...even if only 1or 2 of you/us pull it off, might as well give it a shot...

Mine's with UPS so I am screwed.

I did the Hold trick few times with FedEx, about 75% chance they won't do it usually, but persistence helps.

Re: Small ray of Hope for people wishing for saturday delivery(sprint peeps)

yeah, i mean the guy told me it was a shot in the dark... just knew alot of people woukld be willing to take a shot, so i figured id post...

ill wait till most of the day has gone by, that way i can make sure its atleast been logged in to my nearby locations warehouse, and give it as shot... i wont be disappointed, just figured it was worth some attempt, rather than no attempt..

really my plans for tomorrow fell through, so i figured id try to get my phone lol

The weird part why most delivery companies won't let you pick it up from the location is that shipping fee includes a delivery attempt. This means that they have to try to deliver at least once to fulfill their obligation to a shipper.

Re: Small ray of Hope for people wishing for saturday delivery(sprint peeps)

makes sense... sprint may be the shipper, but i paid the shipping fee, im who gets billed, so shouldnt it be upto me to pay for shipping and then pick it up?

i could understand if it was a replacement phone, then sprint paid for the shipping, not me

Oh, I tried that one too for some of the other items. But at the end, carriers have 2 parties. Shipper and Receiver. And unfortunately they don't care which wallet money came from, to them, shipper is the boss and receiver is a nobody.

My best sob story was that I am flying overseas next day and whatever's in the shipment is something I have to take with me. That's the most successful one so far.
