How to Get a Human at 1-800-ASK-USPS

Sharing is caring!

I consider myself a pretty lucky person… well… maybe moderately lucky – BUT I have NO luck when it comes to getting my mail. I have received empty envelops, dented boxes, mail suspended for a week and all of this is in the last 6 months.

Last week I ordered some items from Amazon ( thank you Swagbucks) – all of them small items.

I have been tracking the packages for days and they were suppose to all arrive yesterday… “were” is the important word here.

3 packages and only one of them was in the locked mailbox. All three had the “delivered” update – all a minute apart.

So one of 2 things happened.

1) Mailman place the packages in the wrong box.

2) Mailman marked it as delivered and did not deliver it.

So I decided to be proactive this morning and call the post office.

Here is my hack to actually talk to actual person at the post office in “one minute”


I now have a case file and they are going to investigate today where my packages are and get back to me within 24 hours. They do actually get back to you đŸ˜‰Â  All this was done in 5 minutes while I was making breakfast.
