Why did ups give my package to USPS?

UPS passes parcels to the Post Office everyday. The Post Office delivers to every address whether in the city or rural 6 days a week. It is a cost savings for UPS to pass off the final delivery to USPS. Why waste the money to send a package car to the rural areas when USPS is already going there.

Is UPS estimated delivery time accurate?

It is very accurate. The driver scans the pkg at destination & that info is relayed to the center every few minutes . If it should show up early, will be by a few minutes not hours or days . Tracking is accurate, but tells you only where it was in the past, nothing about the future.

Do I get a refund if my package is returned to sender?
