Well I had a set of photographic equipment that I truly needed to receive by Friday sent out yesterday with FEDEX and marked 2nd-Day Air on the FEDEX Shipping Bill by the sender using my FEDEX account. They in turn mistakenly read the clearly marked box that said 2ND DAY AIR and sent it out 3-DAY EXPRESS, so I won't get my equipment till Monday. Long after the 3 events that I need to cover with it are long-gone! I called and inquired and discovered that I can "request an upgrade" on it and I did. Only to find out several hours later that upgrades really don't do anything and won't affect the shipment date. :D

Nice. So I guess I am out of work this weekend on 3 important events. (cannot locate any of the gear I need locally on in time on the net) --- FEDEX says, "Well, sorry but that is the best we can do..." At least you don't have to pay for shipping, she says! :D

That is reassuring. :D

I always use UPS for shipping. Especially next day or second day. In 10 years, I've never once had a problem with them. There is a reason they call themselves the tightest ship in the shipping industry.
Can you re-order the items and have them shipped overnight? UPS will deliver very early on a Saturday morning. Just return the first items when they show up or refuse delivery from FedEx.

If you paid for next day and it doesn't arrive by the promised time of the next day it is free! At least that's how UPS does it!

it sucks... you pay the money for a reason.. cause you want the stuff on time...

i like UPS, but fed ex is fine too... I used to have a real hot fed ex girl delivering here... whether its UPS/Fed X, DHL or others..you cant fault the driver anyway..

its still amazes me i can burn a Cd in the morning.. have UPS get it in the afternooon.. and get it to California the next day for short money..

Never really used Fed-Ex that much, but I too have never had a problem with UPS. I have a couple friends that have received big RC boats from UPS that were pretty mangled, but again, I have never had any problems.

Sucks that you had to miss the opportunity because of a screw-up on their end. Seems they'd be a little more understanding, too.
