Default Black Friday Shipping Delays

Is anyone else having delays in shipping with their Black Friday orders? I got 2 orders. The first one I have no shipping info and the second one is not scheduled to be delivered until December 11th. UPS claims "Due to operating conditions, your package may be delayed. / Delivery will be rescheduled."

Is anyone else having issues with UPS delays? Share them here so I know I am not alone.

From ordering on Blowout? I'm pretty sure that their shipping was delayed.

Yes I ordered from blowout. It took 7 days to ship my order but I'm more concerned with the 10 days it is taking UPS to get my order to me.

Two of my three orders -- no problem. Third order I'm still waiting on. Apparently UPS bungled things and I'm going to have to wait for the shipment to be returned to BO and then presumably re-routed to me. Not exactly ideal...

My order was also delayed. Scheduled to finally receive it tomorrow. I'm not so sure if its unique to Blowout because several purchases I made (including a few here) have been seriously delayed going East to West.

One package coming from the MidWest on 11/27 is now comically stuck at the Anchorage distribution center with no ETA as of 12/6.

My draft cases were shipped by Blowout on the 3rd and supposedly won't be here until the 11th. A draft case from a competitor went out today and will be here by Friday.

I have a problem with an Ebay purchase on USPS' end. The tracking shows USPS had it November 30. It then got as far as my state (Ohio) and was supposed to be delivered Monday (the 4th) but instead was sent back to Louisiana and is supposedly en route back to me again.

I made four purchases from BO on BF. Three have been delivered on three different days. The fourth is due today. Tis the season.

One order on time, second one delayed due to UPS, not BO.

Only way to "avoid" it is with a guaranteed shipping method, correct? Next day, 3 day, etc?

I ordered one box and it was delayed. Finally arrived yesterday.

I love Blowout but the shipping is really bad. It’s not their fault. It’s UPS. I wish we had the choice of USPS. UPS ground shipping for my one box of cards was $11.79. I ordered on Friday, November 24th and it arrived yesterday, December 5th. For that same $11.79, if there was a Priority Mail option, it would’ve taken 2-3 days max.

The length of time it takes me to receive my orders from Blowout here in Arizona is the biggest factor stopping me from ordering from them more. It’s a buzz kill to place an order and have to wait 7-10 days to get it.

I know that if I want it faster, I can upgrade the shipping but to go from UPS Ground to UPS 3 day, the price goes from $11.79 to $24.08. That’s a deal killer when you’re buying one box of 2015 Bowman Draft for $39.95.

Mine were shipped the same day, picked up near the same time, and almost identical weight.

One was delivered yesterday and the other today. Both took completely different tracking routes to arrive at my location.

One of my orders was supposed to be delivered on the 30th. It was out for delivery on the 30th, 4th, yesterday and today. Nothing yet.

Another one was supposed to be delivered today. Nothing yet. Last one is supposed to be delivered on Friday, don't have my hopes up.

Another package from a competitor was delivered one the second day the status showed as "Out for delivery today".

Ive got everything from blowout so far..but my order from steel city is worrying me. It was shipped on the 27th and departed on the 28th and then no updated tracking status. I called UPS last night and they opened up a lost package investigation. I've never had a lost package before so I'm hoping it will be found

The period of time from Thanksgiving to Christmas is the worst for shipping anything. UPS, Fedex, and the USPS are all overwhelmed, and with the economy going strong, cannot find enough temporary workers to fill all the jobs they have available.

last year on black friday i placed an order from blowout on friday and another on sunday..

The order number for the sunday order was like 2200 higher then the order # on Friday

How they get out so many orders in a week is nuts imo

Add this time of year.. it is going to be slow

All 3 delivery services are slammed. I'm getting messages from customers that deliveries are being pushed out. Hell 2 days ago I saw a UPS truck pulling a box trailer in my little neighborhood! Like mwf said - no one needs or wants these jobs because the economy is doing well.
