Default experience with USPS?

has anyone shipped with USPS priority mail service to canada? on the site it says that it takes 6-10 days, and my package was shipped today, and its a gift for my mom, and i need it before christmas, so what is the realistic shipping time for something like that?

I wouldn't count on getting it by Christmas...hard to tell when it'll actually come, but that depends on a lot of things.

Probably would have been more wise to do your online shopping awhile back to get it before Christmas.

I bought a fan and a couple of cathodes that were shipped through USPS. Arrived packaged very securely with bubble wrap wrapped around the fan and cathode tubes. It took longer to actually get to shipping than I would like though.

Don't expect it to arrive at the earliest estimated arrival date. They usually arrive at the latest, if not last minute.
