For me, priority mail has been routinely taking around a week each way recently.

Mine hit the PO today with an expected delivery day of Tuesday - allows for a cushion if there is a problem. So far, I've had good luck with items shipped from TD, knock on wood.

Thanks to TD staff and volunteers for doing such a great job sending out the new tokens!

TD should show pics at some point of a typical token drop-off at the PO, whether treasure, token orders, or transmutes. TD must keep that staff pretty darn busy!

From the tracking on my last few transmutes, it looks like TD has either intentionally switched to having USPS come get the packages, or they've had so many packages going in both directions that USPS has mostly been grabbing them from TD as they drop off incoming transmutes.

Sounds like they're currently keeping my tokens company. Mine are also in St. Louis with expected delivery of Tuesday.

In the past, tokens out of Carbondale typically got to St. Louis around 9pm and then departed around 3am the next morning. This time, they weren't scanned in at St. Louis until 1:12am, so I'm doubting they made that 3am departure. So from here, anything can happen. I've seen them ship out around 7am and end up going through the Springfield Regional Center and then head to Aurora before going to Oak Creek. This adds a day, but at least they are out of St. Louis. I've seen them wait until the next morning and then leave around 3am. And, I've seen them go into a depart/arrive St. Louis loop for days before finally escaping. In the "good old days" even if they didn't depart until Sunday morning, I'd still get them by Monday. As has been stated, there's some cushion in their estimate. So, I'm hopeful.

Mine hit St. Louis at 1:15 am and then got departure scanned at 4:08am headed to Springfield, MO (en route to Texas). Also expected Tuesday delivery.

Omg. No departure scan, but my tokens just arrived in Aurora. I feel confident that I might get them on Monday. Just like the old days. They must have smuggled themselves out via the black market.

Edit: Wow. Less than an hour and they departed Aurora, hopefully en route to Oak Creek. Monday is feeling really good at the moment. Heck, i'd get them Sunday if it were possible. Regardless, I should have no issues prior to V4c.

yuck. That happened to me about a month ago. And then they didn't attempt to redeliver until the following Tuesday. I hope that doesn't happen to yours.

Edit: On my front, things are looking much better. Return tokens have reached my local distribution center (15 miles from my house) in less than 20 hours from being handed off in Carbondale. Due to it being the weekend I'll have to wait another 46 hours to get them, but its good to know they are close at hand. But it does prove that faster service is possible.

Still no word on mine; just a new generic message saying In-transit, Arriving Late...for some reason I have a bad feeling about it. It's even messing up my sleep, I woke up way to early worrying about what was going on with my box and couldn't get back to sleep...ooh boy. Would love to see an actual scan, even if it wasn't from St Louis. At least I would know it hasn't been totally lost or something. Now wishing I had dropped the $70 on max insurance. sigh

This thread is kind of like therapy at this point. Hi my name is David and it's been 5 days since the USPS has scanned my package.
