    It took about a week and a half for mine to come in. If they have a lot of orders it may take a while. I need to order more.

    They have a better variety online. Plus you can get the padded ones online but not at the PO.

    My free ones usually take a week. But worth it. Ilike the padded small priority packages with bubbles. Then you can order them so they keep coming in on time. My USPS carries all but the new small priority squishie. They are free there too. I guess I am ditto'ing Cjomomma, I looked up and there was her post. LOL Great minds think alike.

    When I have placed a large ordered for boxes in lots of sizes; they start to arrive about a week after I ordered and continue to arrive for two weeks after that. There does not seem to be a real pattern to when they arrive. Bottom line is one to three weeks.

    I think the local post offices carry TWO lines of shipping boxes and materials.

    The NON PRIORITY MATERIALS have to be paid for before using.

    The post office only carries SOME of the Priority Mail mailing materials - the rest have to be ordered on-line. They have flat rate, pre-paid, and non-flat-rate materials available. One needs to look carefully at what one is ordering/picking up.

    The Priority Mail containers can only be mailed at Priority Mail rates.

    Some people were turning the boxes inside out and using them as "ordinary" mail. USPS didn't like that.
