    USPS Priority Mail vs. UPS ground: which one is faster?

    How long does USPS priority mail take?

  • #2
    USPS Priority is faster (usually two days) but less trackable.

    UPS is trackable, but slower.
    I'm bad at being subtle but I ain't that tough...

        I have had good experiences with Priority mail. It seems to be a day or two quicker.

          My experience UPS ground is good for short distances. Such as next state over. USPS Priority is usually 2-4 days depending on distance. UPS Ground can take up to 6 days. Here's a map from UPS.com. Of course the map is based on where I am. You can go to UPS.com, and click on calculate delivery time, and look at a map based on your area code.

          Also UPS does NOT work weekends whereas USPS does.

            UPS is super fast if the states are close together. PA to MD takes 1 day. USPS is generally 2-3 days no matter where you live. UPS can take a whole week sometimes. UPS doesn't operate on saturday or sunday.

              USPS Priority.

              UPS is good for short distance though.

              What NOT to use? USPS Parcel Post.

                I was about to post about how slow USPS priority is until I figured out I had something shipped to my old address. So address forwarding is a plus!

                  USPS is cheaper too, in my experience. Shipping + insurance + Signature confirmation on a pedal through USPS is usually between $6 and $9 (depeinding on location). I've paid as much as $16 for the same through UPS. And yeah, never had a problem with speed of USPS delivery (except for the one time i forgot to add the apartment address...doh!)
