    Chance cards have been renamed Letterbox Luck

    Whoa, like IRL. You get all the delivery texts and emails, then somebody draws from Letterbox Luck and your parcel is redirected randomly across the board so you'll never receive it.

    I have to play that game each time a seller sends via Aus Post.

    Whats with all the hate to the national postal service??

    • +11 votes

      Because it is poor and expensive and doesn't deliver?

      • +9 votes

        It isn't really expensive. The way the model operates is that people in the city pay extra to subsidise deliveries to people who live in the country. Just remember theres heaps of communities where the only way to get to them to deliver a letter is by a 2 hour plane trip. There would be no postal service for half of Australia if it weren't for this model!

        And I think they are doing a great job delivering everything around the country.

        • +2 votes

          They're certainly doing a great job in most cases, but all those other cases make the service largely unreliable.

          And since there's no real competitor with such reach and within the price range, it's just frustrating having to use Aus Post.

            @pizzaguy: In my opinion, all of these couriers can get stuffed. They love delivering to densely populated urban areas but as soon as its rural, they leave the dirty work to AusPost. What sort of useless competition is that? The government should regulated this industry and hand the monopoly for all postal services back to AusPost.

          And I think they are doing a great job delivering everything around the country.

          Live in an area where the delivery contractor is a crap and you'll see the other reality.

          And that's not even including the times stuff takes the scenic route around the country's distribution centres before reaching the last leg person.

      You must be new here.

      Seems you haven't had your weekly dosage of: "we tried to deliver but couldn't find the address/nobody was home despite WFH/we didn't really, please make a trip to your local PO exactly during your working hours" yet.

    •  

      It might have something to do with so many successive corrupt-incompetent CEOs and their shenanigans.

      Even amongst postal geeks like myself, there are mixed feelings. And who else buys stamps anymore?

      •  

        Having said that I will of course be buying this rediculous thing anyway, which is what they were counting on.

      Would take AusPost any day over Fastway/Aramex or Couriers Please… 🤢

    The Chance Card determines if your package gets delivered or if a ‘we missed you pick up your item from your local Post Office whose opening hours are like it’s 1950 because the franchise owners are stuck in the past card’.

    I wonder who in Australia Post came up with this idea.

    Boss: "How are we going to make a profit?"
    Employee: "How about we make (and sell) our own Australia Post version of Monopoly?"

    • +19 votes

      Or maybe it was —

      Boss: "We need to be a monopoly. Sendle/FedEx/DHL and all these other companies are putting us out of business!"
      Employee: "Boss said we need build a monopoly set."

    @HardcoreDBZ thank you legend

  •  

    The one time I had to nip out the parcel guy didn't leave my parcel he left a card. It took 3 days for the parcel to be delivered to our post office as he no longer drops them at the end of his shift he takes it back to base and it then gets delivered to the post office. Yes I called and asked if I could pick it up from base or if it could be re-delivered but no it had to be delivered to the post office.

  •  

    I hope they send the internal guy from whatever division who they can't figure out that has stolen 30% of my standard mail to jail .
    In the end stopping me from sending anything that is not tracked .
    Sample 100 + .

    @HardcoreDBZ do you work for them?
