    Peet's had always used UPS prior to Thanksgiving, then they switched to USPS. I don't know if it were because they got overwhelmed with orders as this is the follow-up to the one that took forever...

    Thanks! I've ordered some of the SF Coffee from Amazon. It's decent, but I've been stuck on Peet's (and they ship it as well.) Of course I couldn't find a bag of the Starbuck's Peppermint Mocha...

    All I can say is, DHL delivers on time - from the UK. Two days. While shipping is a premium, I noted that some of the USPS complaints on the link I sent were overnight costing...

    In the long run, I don't think it impacted them that much. They were Lorenzo Villoresi fragrances and I had them until maybe 2014 or so, so they lasted a good ten years. I remember I ranted about...

    Hmm... my order went through. I think I placed it Saturday when I noticed only one left. I already have a tracking # from DHL and it's due for delivery on Wednesday. I received a sample today that...
