not always, they use whatever is the cheapest for them. myself i am on a UPS only shipment from them and they can only ship to me with the use of UPS, this does eliminate the 'express shipping' charges on things with the green check mark but it is more then acceptable to me.

I don't know about the standard shipping coming UPS, I'm more of a 2 day air for 13.99 person, and that comes UPS. I need instant gratification....typical American.

being an American and living in South Alabama, UPS ground from Champaign IL is 2 days to me, if they ship USPS Priority Mail (their other 8.99 shipping option) then it's 3-4 days.

if you're not a member of the 'Super Saver Club' most of the time they'll take 2 business days to process and ship your order from the Champaign IL warehouse, the Reno, NV seam to always get orders out the day they are placed if placed at an early enough time.

hard to say most of the time the site says 'now being picked and packed' and i'll get a tracking # showing it in transit, the next day it'll say 'shipped'
