yes for June 2019. So we did not request rush service or pay expedite fees. Hard to top 2 weeks 😃

Regular renewal, did not pay for expedited processing.

Same 13 days

Sent in Jan 24 at local USPS (Irvings, TX)

Payments cleared bank by way of converting checks to ACH on Jan 30. First time I saw a check can be converted to ACH.

Signed up updates on Travel.State.gov site.

Received notifications on Feb 4 about applications in process, followed by another set of notifications the same day about passports were printed.

Today Feb 5th received notifications on passports were sent by Priority Mails with tracking numbers.

Signed up Updates on USPS site, received updates packages will be delivered on Feb 5 by 8pm.

Packages are coming in from AZ despite applications were sent to TX.

Expedited renewal a year early due to running out of pages.

Jan 29: Sent application to PA via Express Mail
Jan 30: Received at Passport Agency
Feb 5 (1AM): Passport Printed
Feb 5 (1PM): Passport Mailed by Express Mail
Feb 5 (7PM): Passport trackable via USPS.com (coming from LIT)

Door to door only 8 days. No idea how long it took last time around, but this was a remarkably quick turnaround.
