editor Posted March 13, 2008 Share Posted March 13, 2008 How many times can a package travel across the country?So far, the one I sent on February 13th has traveled between Chicago and New York seven times... and counting.Go ahead and track it for yourself.Enter tracking number 0703 8555 7490 3334 9870When the next screen comes up click "Additional details" to see how many trips it's taken.This is a box of stuff that my wife sold on eBay. Thank God the buyer paid extra for insurance. I've filed an insurance claim (you can do that if something hasn't been delivered in 21 days). I wonder if the package will ever get to its destination or if it will keep flying between MDW and LGA until the end of time.I called the 800 number for the Postal Service and learned three things:You cannot get a refund on Priority Mail shipping. Only Express Mail is guaranteed and can be refunded.The people at the 800 number look at the same web site as you and me and don't know anything more than you can see at home.They will hang up on you if you ask to speak to a supervisor.In case the details page becomes unavailable for some reason, here's the status after 28 days in transit:Processed, March 06, 2008, 3:24 am, BETHPAGE, NY 11714 Processed, March 04, 2008, 4:32 pm, ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL 60007 Processed, March 02, 2008, 9:00 pm, ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL 60007 Processed, March 01, 2008, 11:52 pm, BETHPAGE, NY 11714 Processed, February 29, 2008, 11:02 pm, ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL 60007 Processed, February 28, 2008, 11:57 pm, BETHPAGE, NY 11714 Processed, February 27, 2008, 7:46 pm, ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL 60007 Processed, February 26, 2008, 7:03 pm, BETHPAGE, NY 11714 Processed, February 22, 2008, 6:49 pm, ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL 60007 Missent, February 16, 2008, 1:12 pm Processed, February 13, 2008, 8:50 pm, ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL 60007 Acceptance, February 13, 2008, 9:29 am, CHICAGO, IL 60611 Electronic Shipping Info Received, February 13, 2008 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
