  • Yes most of the time USPS is faster

  • Either. Both have over night shipping and 2-3 day shipping. USPS is cheaper, just use the priority boxes.

  • Both are equally unreliable in my opinion. But ups and usps have guaranteed overnight delivery.

  • USPS is just as fast and lots cheaper. I live on Ohio and will mail something to my parents in SC. Just using a regular stamp, it'll get there the next day.

  • It really depends on what you're shipping, where you're shipping it, how fast you want it to get there, how much it weighs. There are a LOT of variables. My husband works for UPS.

  • How fast do you want it there? If I were sending something, I'd send it USPS Priority - gets there in 2-3 days (even cross country).

  • Oh and I'm talking about just standard shipping. I recently ordered something (I didn't have the option for USPS, which is how I get 99% of my online purchases), and I was just wondering if USPS or UPS is faster with the standard shipping. It hasn't left yet, so no tracking info is available.

  • I personally like UPS better, I have never had any issues with lengthy deliveries or shipping. I may be a bit biased though. Our mail carrier tried to steal our rent check out of our mailbox last Christmas, so I don't use USPS unless I absolutely have too.
