Tracking Packages in your RSS Reader

Posted by Liz McCoy Monday, November 26, 2007
Hey if you're like me you love tracking your packages on fedex or ups's website....ooh it's moved across state lines!! Yippie only 6 hours until delivery.

Well now you can get the updates via RSS feed in your feed reader!!! How exciting!!!
Just in time for the holidays and all the packages you'll be shipping and receiving.

Check out these resources for turning your Package tracking into a feed URL

track2rss project
towards the bottom of the page there is alittle form you can fill out with your tracking number then it will let you choose which reader you want to subscribe to the feed in.

A "prettier" website that gives you the RSS feed url you can copy and paste into your reader.

If you use Google Desktop there are some nifty desktop gadgets you can download here is one:
Delivery Status 3.9

I subscribe to them in Google Reader and rename them as the item that is being shipped. You could also add them to your igoogle page and once the package is delivered just delete it. You cannot rename the feed on igoogle though.

Hope you all enjoy this as much as I do!!!
