Yes, UPS, padded envelope. I receive quite a few things from Amazon in padded envelopes, all delivered by UPS.

L

Interesting!

Yeah, I've gotten a lot of things from them in padded envelopes, though I'd have to say that my impression is  the padded envelopes I've gotten are more commonly things mailed through USPS or courier. 

I get things from them all three ways--UPS, USPS, courier, with no real rhyme or reason.  I got a holder for my EZpass delivered by UPS--the item itself in its packaging was about 3"x4" and it came in a box that was 10"x7"x3", about twice the size of the Oasis box, LOL!

    My ship date for my Oasis (walnut 3G SO) WAS July 12.  Just now got notice from Amazon, delivery . . . TOMORROW!!!!!!!!

    :)  :)  :)  :)  :)  :)

    ETA:  Stay home tomorrow waitin' on UPS.  I'm anxious to find out what pockets in my various Kipling purses the Oasis will fit in.  My Voyage in Oberon sleeve fits so nicely in a number of bag pockets when I didn't expect it to.  I'm wondering about width of the Oasis??

    Disney is in 69 days now, but Oasis is now just 3 days instead of 34!!  Obsessively checked my ship date this morning for the gazillionth time and it's changed from June 6 to May 6 - it'll be here Friday!!!  Doing my happy dance here!  ;D


    Yay!  Maybe you're getting Ann's!

    I haven't been reading this thread too much in the past few days as I HAD such a long time to wait.  Has sudden "delivery tomorrow" happened to others too lately?

    I wonder if my sudden "delivery tomorrow" is due to a number of purchases recently from Amazon (2 X one-day-sale priced Echo, $58 discounted Voyage) and my continual high praise for Amazon's customer service and tech support.  That due to problem with my Echo which seems to have resolved itself after getting second Echo.  First one just needed sibling?  ;)

    Mine is still stubbornly sitting at a June 3rd delivery date with no change whatsoever.    I'm happy for everyone and blindly jealous at the same time.

    Apparently it has arrived at/in mailbox according to the usps website. But, I might still have to wait a bit as the mailman won't let me in until he is done with all of the mail. There are 176 units.  :-X

    Then I'll do my morning exercise by power walking to the box.  :P

    I watch Shark Tank, but can't understand all the business talk.  Could Oasis delivery dates also be affected by whether an order is full payment or five payments?

    I can see the mail building from the dumpster at the next building. The one I have to waddle to. I am now out of trash and recycles to take to see if he is still there.  ;D

    My cc has been charged...still no shipping email or registration number.  Order page still says shipping today arrive, tomorrow.  At least I am real busy at work and have only stopped to check a couple of times instead of every 5 min.

    My 3G Walnut SO left KY overnight and is currently in Little Rock for delivery tomorrow.

    I also deal with apartment front desk staff receiving my packages,but they are pretty good. They have some reason to be snotty, I saw a news report last Christmas that the rise of online shopping made real problems for apartments during Christmas. They were getting so many packages they didn't have space to store them all, and some buildings were just no longer accepting packages!

    My (old) apartment complex consistently gave out packages to the wrong people. I recently moved out, and they lost (gave away to another resident) a pair of expensive running shoes a month prior. I was furious. I was glad I moved before my Merlot shipped. I would have probably gone crazy if they had lost it. And they claim no responsibility because of an addendum they sneakily make you sign when you're signing your lease. Just beware of what you're signing!

    Where are you in Illinois?  My Oasis has left Indianapolis this afternoon for Illinois via UPS Ground.  I'm in the Chicago 'burbs.  Tracking shows delivery tomorrow.

    ETA:  Tracking now shows it's in Chicago.  :)  UPS usually delivers here mid morning.
