It either didn’t go through Aurora this time or just didn’t get scanned, but I’ll take it. The estimated delivery date is still Monday, but there is at least a chance it could get here tomorrow. I will try not to get my hopes up too much.


Congrats on escaping St. Louis. My last scan still shows it arriving in St. Louis last night. I can always pray that it's moving through the system in stealth mode. There's precedence for it not being scanned out of St. Louis, but the two prior times that happened it didn't show up anywhere for 2-3 days. I just have to hope it doesn't end up being later than Monday.

Ditto. Showing by 9pm delivery on Monday but here it means Tuesday or Wednesday given no delays in going from St Louis Distro Center thru 3 more centers to get to local Post Office.

There is hope!

Evidently, my package did slip out of St. Louis unscanned. It even managed to sneak in and out of Aurora without been seen. But there is now a scanned sighting of it in Oak Creek as of 25 minutes ago. Normally, it gets to Oak Creek closer to 1pm, so there must have been some unusual logistics at play. However, in the past it has left Oak Creek as late as 9:30pm and still managed to get to me the next morning. And thus there is hope.

Happy for you!

Mine updated with the dreaded "Your package is moving within the USPS network......."

Ouch - I think that translates as "we have no idea where your package is, but we're sure it must be somewhere in our system. Just have patience, Rome wasn't built in a day, and that might be where your package is." Of course I'm talking Rome, Illinois.

It's the default update if there's been no tracking scan in 24 hours.

I still stand by my interpretation.

And after a few days the updates stop and then eventually something happens in a week or two more. Seems to be the story of late though.

Things were back to normal on this shipment. To St Louis, next day to local distro center and received treasure today. 2 days this time. Reminds of me what it was back in 2019.

Same here. I can hope this is a return to some semblance of normalcy. Though I would have liked better scanning updates, I'll take timely delivery instead of accurate scans every time.

Never got a shipping or tracking notification, but my treasure arrived today - huzzah!

My bad luck with treasure draws continues - no URs or higher.
