First packets went out on 6/21!
Many more yesterday.
Account holders can check their "My Packets" page to see the status of their shipments!
Reminder that you need to sign for these packets!
Additional reminder to carefully open them as event tickets in particular (If there are just a few) can be missed or attached to your packing list.
And you really should after validating the packet stick the entire thing into the luggage you're taking to Gen Con so that you will see it when you start packing in a few weeks and not wonder where you might have put it down for a minute, weeks ago. :)
Anybody else get the dreaded "Your package is moving within the USPS network and is on track to be delivered to its final destination. It is currently in transit to the next facility" tracking message? Not too worried; I've had these before - usually it will pop up locally in a couple of days. I only point it out because the original message I got said that it was "expected" to be delivered today - the one day I'm actually home to sign for it.
A reminder that if your packet is returned to us we will set it aside for pickup in Will Call.
We do not open it. It lives in the USPS packets Will Call box.
Just let the attendant know that you have a returned USPS packet when you go to to pick it up under your name...and address. That way they do not search through the thousands of Will Call envelopes for it!
Here's a recent experience for everyone's education. I moved since the shipment cutoff date. The post office issued an "exception" for forwarding the packet. That means they sent it to another city to get a stamp telling them to forward it. Then, that city's post office will ship it back to the original post office where they will place it in a PO box 15 feet from the person that filed the exception. I was told this is perfectly normal and that it will take a day or two.
Forgot to post this yesterday but who has two thumbs, as well as his event tix and his badge for Gen Con 2022?.... THIS GUY!!
This years badge design left me "blah"
No not sure how helpful the QR code on the back of the badge is for me, I sue the wallet holder, but I do appreciate that the Power that Be remind me to SHOWER LOL I swear true instruction on the back of the badge
I got a knock on my apartment door at 9am yesterday: The letter carrier with my Gen Con package.
Luckily, I was still awake at that time.
More luckily, I had some pants on.
Tracking status claims that I signed for mine when in fact it was left in my mailbox.
Mine says I signed for it at my home 10 minutes ago while I am sitting in my office at work typing this. :)
Is there someone else at your home who might have signed for it? My husband signed for all of our badges, even though they came in separate envelopes.
Picked mine up yesterday from the post office. First time having shipped. Normally just go pick it up at Will call on Wednesday. Going to be strange not having to do that this year. Hope I can get the Covid verification done on Wednesday. Does anyone know if they will be doing it then? Thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone at the con have a safe trip.
I spoke with my post office last Saturday to have the package held so I could pick it up.
Tracking said it was out for delivery and I was about to get frustrated, but then it got changed to say it was being held by the post office and waiting for me.
Picked it up at lunch today.
Apparently there will be verification on Monday and Tuesday, too, which makes sense (for vendors and other early-arrivers) and is awesome!
Have the verification hours been announced yet?
Apparently mine was brought to my door today but since we are all out on vacation, it wasn’t delivered. So what’s the process from here? Will the post office hold it for a period of time and then send it back?
You can also go to www.usps.com/redelivery and leave instructions for what to do it it. You will need the tracking number, which you can get from this website (it should be in your "My Packets" page).
