So, I've noticed lately that a lot of people are just surprised when packages show up and have no notice when things are going to show up especially when they aren't given a tracking number. Well here are the 3 things I use to track deliveries.
All 3 options come with an app that you can use to track your deliveries as well
Most of our packages come through USPS and sometimes we do get some surprise packages that we don't know about. We find that My USPS is a nice addition to USPS and you get real time updates (even real time delivery updates). You can even have a text sent to your phone when the package is delivered. The app and tracking is accurate, unless your postal worker is scanning your packages delivered before they actually are which is a no, no because USPS now uses GPS location when packages are delivered and scanning something delivered when it is not could get them in trouble because you could as for the GPS location for the delivery and if it's not your house the postmaster won't be happy.
UPS My choice has two options, free or paid. I just use the free option because that is all I need really. It sends you an email when you have a package coming and the day before it is scheduled to be delivered as well as the day of delivery. Below is what you get being a free member and what you get being a premium member.
FedEx Delivery Manager is also free and is pretty much the same as UPS, not many of my packages come via FedEx but I do appreciate their delivery window that they provide.
