I also think (hope) that if they were not going to make the deadline by sending them out at the end of the month we would have seen something posted or have gotten an email.
I emailed Google and their reponse was that checks HAVE been mailed.
checks HAVE been mailed? But we even have not seen the published July earnings on our "Account Information". Last time, the data were published on July 10 while the checks were cut and mailed out around July 21.
I would keep one eye on the check's issuing date and mail's stamp. It would be a little unbelievable for the mails to take "a couple of weeks" to be received by US publishers.
Of my experience, I would have a question mark in my head if I could not receive the first class air mail in 4 days after it is claimed to be sent out anywhere here in US.
