We got an email today from Amazon.com about our order for the Harry Potter book. It stated that our shipment was being prepared and that it would arrive, as promised, on Saturday via UPS. I kept staring at the email wondering why it bothered me. I walked away and then came running back to verify what I saw. UPS to a PO box? That's what the email said. I shook my head and waited on hold for a customer service rep to answer.
I made the guy repeat it twice just to make sure I heard correctly... It seems Amazon has made special arrangements with UPS and the USPS so that they can deliver the books. According to the rep, UPS will be delivering to my PO Box. I'm not exactly sure how this is going to work but I'm going to be sitting at the PO waiting for our book. Our PO isn't open on Saturdays but there is a 4 hour block of time that they have someone who will retrieve packages for you. Even if we are disappointed and the book doesn't arrive there is the bonus that we will get the book for the cost of shipping only. It seems like a win-win situation.
