Tracking a Shipment

My wife’s Christmas gift shipped by UPS on the 8th of the month. It gets here today, the 14th. More transit time than I had expected is seen in the tracking details below.

So, what is the gift? An Apple Pro 10.5 Tablet purchased with thousands of available credit card reward points. Apparently, Apple manufactures them in China and has no inventory in the USA. Do we have to learn to read mandarin to set it up? If yes, I will use     or a similar source.

Shipment tracking is a handy service that shows details of stops it made along the way.

  1. Yes, but isn’t it better to know than to be kept in the dark? I love having the ability to know exactly where my package has been and where it currently is . . . even if it means I don’t get it for a while. Glad to see you came over to the dark side! 🙂

    Bought a Nescafe espresso maker for Christmas and the manual is only available in Japanese. The capsules had to be ordered from England. The good news? Everything arrived in time for Christmas.
