I've seen UPS (if that's who is delivering?) give an extra day lead on delivery times before. Not sure why. I've had that happen with stuff I've ordered from Amazon before, but it came on time 2nd day even tho the 'anticipated' delivery date was a day later.

The day it is shipped is not counted. And you have to account for weekends.

If you ship next day on Thursday, it will arrive Friday.
If you ship next day on Friday, it will arrive Monday.

If you ship second day on Wednesday, it will arrive Friday.
If you ship second day on Thursday, it will arrive Monday.
If you ship second day on Friday, it will arrive Tueaday.

See the pattern?
