And just a reminder that Ben and Jerry’s has Buy One Get One Free for the month of May!
There is a new tracking service from Fed Ex that sounds great to me! I don’t often get packages from Fed Ex but it seems like when I do they require a signature on a day I am not home and then it is days before you actually get the darn thing.
So this is pretty cool- you just register for the free service and you can choose to have things held for you and get alerts as to when your packages will arrive.
If you go on vacation you can set a vacation hold- that is an excellent bonus. My friend was gone for a week and had a package coming and they tried 3x to deliver and then returned to sender. She had to pay for shipping again on her item and deal with a ton of hassle to get the thing sent out again.
I ordered some cowboy boots for my little girl’s birthday this weekend and I didn’t think they would come on time. I registered for this service and just got a message that my boots will be here tomorrow. Yeah!
So click the image above and that will take you to the page to register for the service. Even if you don’t get packages very often from Fed Ex this is a handy tool just in case.
