Dunno if anyone posted this. but starting today, all packages sent priority mail comes with $50 free insurance. Pretty good for us board gamers that trade alot.
Anyone claimed against that before? How painful is it, if you've had to?
The one time I tried to file a claim, it was for damage during transit.
Basically, they're insurance doesn't cover damage. If it was damaged during shipping, it was (for all practical purposes) always due to inadequate packaging.
USPS insurance really only covers you if they absolutely lose the package.
I never buy any insurance on this sort of thing any more. Nor extended warranties. Better to just pay for the very rare lost package or repair when it happens.
