A major holiday is on the horizon…no, I’m not talking about Thanksgiving. I’m talking about what comes after the turkey and family time – Cyber Monday! For the inexperienced, Cyber Monday is one of the biggest shopping days of the year for online retailers and a day when you can score some great deals online. Basically it’s the Black Friday of the online retail world.
I love online shopping – you add something to your “cart” and it magically appears on your doorstep in a matter of days. For some people, however, this process can be a bit more complicated when the delivered shipment requires a signature. If no one is home when the delivery person arrives, the item you shipped for rush delivery could be in your hands much later than anticipated.
But when your online purchase is shipped via FedEx, you can request a redirect to an eligible FedEx Office® in the delivery area of the original destination address via the free Hold at FedEx Location service. With this option you can pick up your Cyber Monday holiday gifts or other shopping splurges on your own schedule instead of waiting for the delivery man. It’s also a great option when you’re trying to throw nosy gift recipients off the scent of your holiday shopping!
To request a redirect of FedEx Express®, FedEx Ground® or FedEx Home Delivery® shipments in transit, go to fedex.com (enter the tracking or door tag number and select Hold at FedEx Location) or call 1.800.GoFedEx 1.800.463.3339.
