    I shipped 2 packages, 2 days ago. To this day, there is absolutely NO tracking information on them, July 4th was a holiday, but it is july 5 and still nothing.

    How long does it take for UPS to update tracking on packages?

    That prolly means that your package hasn't left the post office that you dropped it off at yet, or that it just left today/tonight. They can drag a bit with that...

    Well I never shipped anything about, when it comes to stuff coming to me, it varies. I ordered my thingy on July 3rd in the afternoon so I got the notice it shipped but it never moved in reality. Then it took til 1:30 in the morning today for it to move, and it just updated six minutes ago, 6:10pm, saying it arrived in Florida to be driven tomorrow.

    The only thing you'll usually see is when it was dropped off, scanned into the system, left the post office, arrived at your post office, is on the truck, and gets delivered. (That's what I got for the last thing I ordered, took 6 days from CA to MI)

    That's where my post came from, Newegg. I dunno why it's taking so long for you.

    Ok, finally scanned.

    The packages were a Wii and a DS, both going to Nintendo for a repair (Wii had GPU artifacting and the DS was getting old so I just wanted a new one [​IMG] well that and it had a stuck red pixel in the middle of the screen which was pissing me off.)

    The 29th was a friday, so it most likely wasn't physically shipped until monday. Wednesday was a holiday, so friday (tomorrow) is 3 UPS business days from monday.
