Let's Talk about Freebie Delivery Times!

Money Saving

Hi everyone, I was interested in:

a) how long do your freebies normally take to arrive?

b) does your post(wo)man get annoyed at you when little parcels arrive or is your post(wo)man fine with it?

You may find this weird but I'm trying to prove a point to my best friend who's post(wo)man gets annoyed whenever she orders stuff😂

Weird that the post woman gets annoyed at delivering freebies.

It's paying her wages.

Yeah that's what I thought! If she didn't like delivering parcels why would she want to deliver parcels haha, I wanted to ask incase there was a post person on here who understood.

A post person getting annoyed because they have to do their job? Strange and samples usually takes longer than normal deliveries

That's what I thought ! She seems to think it is totally fine, and that she is to blame! I was so shocked after hearing the post person once got so annoyed they pushed some parcels straight into her and nearly knocked her over. I have told her to complain but she thought I was being silly. Thanks for commenting!

I don’t think the postman gets annoyed... it’s their job 🤣 and I don’t get many Freebies or post in general.. I find it normally takes a couple of weeks and I’ve forgotten about it by the time it turns up!

how do postman even know if it’s freebie or you paid for it? Plus it’s not his/her business , someone pays for it to be delivered so she/him should do their job if they don’t like it should change the job 🤷‍♀️

They don't I don't think, I just meant when you order a large amount of freebies and you get around 7 parcels a day lol. I completely agree!

They used to turn up with no problems, some after a few days, some a lot later. These days, nothing seems to be coming through, even before the lockdown. I don’t think it’s the post people or post office distribution centre - it’s more likely the freebies were never sent, and I find lots of companies who falsely advertise them to get your details to spam the hell out of you
