Default How accurate is FedEx estimated delivery date?

I have a package coming from topps. It was shipped Monday from PA and I live in Jersey. Its already in NJ but it says I wont get it until Friday. Is this accurate or could I get it Wednesday or Thursday? Seems like a long wait for a package not too far away

sign up for a free fedex account , you can request a specific date and time window for delivery on certain services that the sender used.

Don't sweat the small stuff. It will arrive if you don't watch. It takes water longer to boil if you watch.

Topps is sending MOST redemptions like this.
FedEx drops it at your local PO or sorting center and the USPS delivered it to your house.

Smartpost is very slow. I have found it adds 2 to 3 days to the delivery time of most packages

In my experience if Fedex said Friday, you will get it Friday. Not earlier (which sucks).
