UPS offers Priority Mail 2-Day
Despite the name "Priority Mail 2-Day," USPS does not guarantee their shipping time for the 2–3 days shipping options. They only guarantee delivery for Priority Mail Express shipments, for which you have a Money-Back Guarantee. USPS does not offer this option for their other types of shipments.

If it is within 30 days of when your Priority Mail Express package was shipped, you may take advantage of your Priority Mail Express Money Back Guarantee.
