Anyone know how to track USPS package without receipt?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I sent my S.S. presents off plenty long enough that they shouldv'e been there by now.
I didn't take out insurance on it.
I don't know if I even kept the receipt, I never considered it may get lost in transit.
I hate for my person to not have their package yet!!

I found the receipt!!!
It was the very last paper in the bag I was going through.

Anyway I tracked it and it left the US through NJ Bulk, whatever that means.
On November 28.
No more information available.


Hopefully it is on its way..........
Don't give up on me!!
I'm trying

I am seriously thinking of talking to my S.S. recipient and telling her myself!

I work for USPS customer service. Once it leaves tht US, we have no way of finding out what another country's postal service does. We get it there by air, but once it gets there, it could be delivered by mule pack.
Did you send it Parcel Post, Priority, or Express? If you sent it Express, you are due a refund of your fee because that is a guaranteed service.
Try the 1-800-ASK-USPS customer service line on Monday, and tell the rep that answers the phone you want to speak to an international agent, they have access to more information that the first person that you speak to after you go through the absolutely useless automated system. They might have some info that has not been posted. Whoever posts the info is very slow about it.
If you get someone that answer the phone, "this is Becca, how may I help you?" you have gotten me.

Yes, it is to a non-US address, but taking that into account, they said "2 weeks". I paid $26. instead of $13. to make sure it got there before the very last minute. For all the good it did me!

They said two weeks for mine as well, [my present was going from NZ to the UK] and it took over three weeks. It will get there.

Thanks from me too. I sent 4 parcels to Canada - 2 on one day and 2 the following day. The two sent the second day have arrived, but the two sent the previous day haven't yet. I was promised a 4 to 6 day delivery and that was 2 weeks ago, so I will be calling that number tomorrow as well. The online checking shows that they didn't leave the US until 3 days after I dropped them off and that it left the US from Miami! I wonder why when we have a perfectly good airport here in Atlanta.

oh.. maybe you should tell your ss that it was you i mean it is christmas next week and November 28 was a fair while ago.
My posts to australia arrive with in a week or so and i didnt think that mail from america took longer.
I once received a Letter and it only took 3 days.

Did you put your return address on it??
This is how my post cards get lost because of some peoples bad handwriting :S and they dont have return address on it!
BUt if one of my parcels got lost
i would be furious at the post office?

I read your responses and am wondering if I sent something Registered mail from the US to the UK shouldn't I be able to track it? All I find is when it was checked into the local post office but nothing further. It has been two weeks already. I went to the local post office and they just tell me that it will take a few weeks to get there so just be patient.

HELP????????????????????????

If I remember correctly, registered mail is not offered internationally. Once it leaves the US and goes into a foreign postal service, it cannot be tracked or guaranteed to be kept as secure as the USPS keeps it. Registered mail is the most secure, because it is kept under lock and key from the time it is posted until it is delivered. It sometimes takes longer to be delivered because of all the security precautions.
Global Express is the fastest way to get a piece of mail out of the US.

We have always been wary of sending something important (well, anything for that matter) across international borders using USPS. We trust USPS for stuff inside of U.S. Territory very much, but the instant we handle something international it goes with UPS. Never failed us in that one.

I've got a question on that: A few days ago, we received an official letter (a set of credit transcriptions) through registered mail from Spain, the University of Seville (a state owned institution) with a Spanish "Correo y Telegrafos" (Mail and Telegraph) Stamp, yet it also had a "USPS Postage Paid" stamp. But the U.S. Postal Service mailman still had us sign a Registered Mail, and he also had us sign the same certification of arrival card from Spanish Mail and Telegraph services which he said would be sent back to Seville... and here's my question: How could the U. of Seville be able to arrange a registered mail sending to a U.S. Territory across international borders and still get them to send back their own confirmation card?
