    Okay...

    I've been tracking the progress of my new, (to me that is :) ), Fender Jazz V, and it arrived and departed from Portland early this morning... (Side Note: Does anyone else find their lives dominated by 'Track-a-Package' technology when awaiting a shipment?? :D )... This would indicate a delivery to my door today, but I can't recall ever receiving a weekend delivery... Please put me out of my misery...

    yep, they do....not everywhere though.....what does it show for delivery date? if it says today, then you'll get it today......i also am currently being governed by the track a package feature on UPS......i love watching the package travel across the USA, and the interesting towns it stops in.

    I know that UPS makes commercial deliveries on Saturdays, but I'm not sure about residential deliveries.

    AFAIK, only business and next day air packages that were sent on Friday make it on Saturday. :meh:

    I have received a UPS package on Saturday before. Didn't cost me extra either.

    Check the "scheduled delivery", that will tell you right there.

  6. UPS doesn't deliver ground on Weekends unless they make an exception. Thats because Air drivers cannot handle ground packages.
