Are they starting to send these out on the day you said you would mail the book?

The last two weeks I've gotten one on the morning of the day I said I would mail. I've never got them on the day I said I would mail (probably because I always either mail before or on the day I said I would!). It just strikes me as odd that they would suddenly do this considering I have two days after today to mark it mailed anyway.

I think I've always gotten them starting the day (or evening?) before I was supposed to mail them.

One of the biggest PITA problems we see in Live Help is members who failed to mark their book mailed. IMO there can't be enough reminders for that, it creates such a mess if the receiver gets another offer on the book quickly.

Oh, I wonder why I never got them before then. Fridays are my mail days, and most often I wait until then even if I could go earlier in the week. I would have thought I'd have been getting them already.

I usually mark my books "I can mail within two days"  When I do this, I don't remember getting the reminder notices (I usually mail my book the next day, but sometimes it is two days.)  If for some reason I know I won't be able to mail my book in two days,  and I choose the date I'll be able to mail then I always get the message on the mail date--or the evening before the mail date.

I always choose "I can mail later." Just in case. Oh well, maybe there was a glitch on my account until recently that didn't send them.
