Ordered an amazon package to my office, came USPS.  Just got a message that they tried to deliver it today at 2:19, but "business closed." 

No, we have a huge staffed mailroom, which definitely was not closed today.



No mail today. No? Veterans Day

They do that often with amazon packages, so that they can show amazon they were on time but you were not there.
They were probably running a Subday schedule today of only amazon packages but missed your package.

Got the same message an hour ago. The truck didn't even done by then (checked the security camera).
What's Amazon usual comp for this? Extra prime or something better? Should I waste my time?

You can get an extra free month of Prime.

It happens to me alot when my package is scheduled to arrive on shabbos. They always deliver it the following day.

If Amazon doesn't deliver on time...they'll give an extra month of prime for free...but you can push for them to give you credit. I once got $25 credit. Also FEDEX may have the nicest tracking but out of all the shipping comp. (DHL, UPS, USPS, FEDEX)

A study by consumer reports where they shipped packages with sensors (detect temp, drop length) found that Fedex was the worst w/ dropping packages at a pretty high height...and USPS won w/ the best care of packages.

Will search for source if you guys insist.

Just a question, not about hating usps.

I sent something via USPS, I now tracked it and it says;
Your item arrived at the CHINOOK, MT 59523 post office at 8:23 am on December 9, 2015 and is ready for pickup.
Are they not going to deliver it or what?

Same thing happened to me. You need to block out the address or cover over the address
