Default Does USPS.com take forever to send you some supplies or what?

I ordered some small USPS Priority box back in Jan 14 and so far I got nothing from them

Is this normal?

If you're just ordering free supplies, they put you at the bottom of the list of importance, right behind the religious fliers for the local church group.

God dammit, I think you are right.

I will admit that this will be my tenth time ordering from them. They seem to get slower and slower. I even sent them a message saying is it because I order too much..lol

They seem to deliver fast or not at all. I think when they end up at the local post office sometimes they keep them to give out inside the post office.

What's even better is waiting a week and a half only to get the wrong product. I'm the proud owner of 500 LEGAL sized flat rate envelopes. Checked my order and I ordered correctly :/

My last order took nearly two weeks to complete. It seemed that it came in pieces as well. I just did another order yesterday as well, I was expecting at least a week or two to come in.

I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but cant you just go down and pick them up at the local PO? Assuming its not a super far drive for you.

we have 2 POs that have them right outside the lobby to take as many as you need.

has taken weeks to days, to about 8 years - the 8 years is still an ongoing wait for some regional boxes

UPdate:

I cleared my cookie and cache and that seems to have fix the problem.
I went ahead and order them again adn will see how it goes.
If I still don't get them, I'll have to trek through the cold and the bums of San Francisco to the USPS store.

Its always taken me a long time to get the supplies.
They take time to ship and they ship in multiple parcels (That really annoys me)

They do seem to get there a little faster if you order a full unit of product. At one point I kept increasing my order on padded flat rates envelopes until they sent me a partial case, and now I know the count to order a full case (100). I'll get through them eventually.

I'm going to try that next time.

I usually just order one bundle that contains 10 inside.
