Does 2nd day air include saturday shipping?

Asked by futurelaker88 (1594 points ) May 16th, 2009

i ordered a package and paid $65 for 2nd day air so i would have it before next week. i ordered it thursday at around 5 and i wanted it by today. will they deliver today or will i still have to wait until monday and have wasted all that money?

If it was shipped UPS, you would have had to pay an additional fee for Saturday delivery. If it was shipped FedEx, they will deliver on Saturday.

@harp but isnt today the 2nd day!?!? lol. if it was shipped/processed Thursday, today is the second day! by wouldn’t they include Saturday shipping in a $65 2nd day air order? does it make a difference if i always get packages on sat without paying? a couple weeks ago i ordered something on Tuesday and it came ups sat, does that change anything?

The sender should be able to give you a tracking number that will end all doubt.

Saturday delivery costs more, particularly to a residential address. Unless you specify and pay extra, 2 day air will be 2 business days.

@Mamradpivo – so in other words…i wasted $70 because it wont be here for 4 days at least
