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, their 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.

I can try to answer the question because I asked a USPS post office worker what the insurance covered. Basically, if your package gets lost and it is insured, you have to produce a receipt of purchase and they will refund you the amount you paid for the item/s per the receipt. So, for most trades I don't purchase/need the insurance unless I have the receipt of when I purchased the game.
