Default Lost card in mail

The card I bought got lost in the mail what do you all do to protect yourself? Do you request the seller to get insurance?

Depends. How did you buy the card? Through eBay? If so, can you request a refund? On eBay it's on the seller to make sure the card gets delivered to you. However, you should also be charged for insurance on cards that merit it (at least $50 or so).
What is the value of the card? Was there a tracking number? Have you gone into your post office? Need a lot more information to determine what you should do.

Go to the post office and request a tracer. Who is the seller?

It is just part of doing business with the USPS. I have had it happen several times. Have always got my stuff but it has taken up to 6 weeks before.

You can also sign up for email/text alerts online. Good luck, hope your card shows up soon.

Thankfully I have not had many cards actually lost/stolen since I started buying/trading online about 20 years ago. One ebay buy recently took almost a month after showing up in Los Angeles from Asia and it sat there without an update to the tracking for at least 2 weeks. It finally arrived one day out of the blue.

Hopefully yours is just taking the scenic route.

I have been retired sine 2007 and been fortunate since then to be able to travel all over the world on a regular basis. I have come to understand how fortunate we are to have a dependable postal service at a reasonable cost. That does not make mistakes that affect someone any less annoying, but I have come to appreciate the cost and dependability of our postal system.

Was recently involved in a wedding in Paraguay. It involved many people from Paraguay, Eastern Europe and the U.S. To be sure the invitations from Paraguay made it to those in the U.S. and Europe, the hosts sent the invitations on a plane with a courier to NY to have the invitations mailed from there. And if you ever have to send something to residential India........

Usually I find that once I call the USPS 800 number and get a case opened for a lingering package, things shake loose quickly and I get it a day or two later.
