Here the USPS and UPS deliverers ring the bell but the FedEx guys don't do anything. We're retired so normally we're home anyway to get the packages quickly. It also helps that we are in a gated community with a manned guard gate so people can't just follow the deliverers. But a lot of folks in our general area are complaining on our local social media about porch pirates.

I've had the same PO box for 25 or so years. Here's the progression during the last 10 billing cycles. This works out to an average increase of 6.4% (although 9% over the last 3 years). Just "slightly" higher than the official inflation rate (CPI) of 1.2%, LOL.

2020: $168.00
2019: $154.00
2018: $140.00
2017: $132.00
2016: $130.00
2015: $130.00
2014: $128.00
2013: $124.00
2012: $120.00
2011: $96.00

I guess the USPS has to replace a lot of equipment that went out of service in 2020.

For those of you who don't have the option of staying home all day, you can have FedEx hold your package at a nearby FedEx location and pick it up at your convenience. I'm rarely at home to accept deliveries during normal business hours, so I usually do this when I'm expecting a FedEx package.
