I was on vacation in Florida and live in Switzerland. I went to the Universal Studios and there i got the Gryffindor Sword at the Harry Potter Park. I payed 220 dollars for that. As I wanted to put it in my suitcase I realized it didn't fit. So my only option was to send it back home. I went to the USPS-Office. The guy that worked there wanted me to give him my address so I gave it to him. As i got to the country (Switzerland) he already wanted to enter "Sweden" which is not the same country at all! I told him and he changed it back to Switzerland. I payed about 70 dollars and that was it. I enjoyed the rest of my vacation fishing etc. I was very excited to hang to Sword in my room at home. So after i got home I went to the online tracking site and saw it went to New York and then to Denmark. It was pretty close to Switzerland so i thought it wouldnt take much longer (They told me about 7working days). The next time I checked it went to Sweden which is more North. It stayed there for 5 days so i got worried and called USPS. First its this automatic phone answering machine which doesn't help it just takes forever(Which generates high costs for a international phone call). They told me it was normal and everything goes to Sweden first and gets sorted there. I waited a few days more and then called Sweden. They told me it wasn't normal and i should contact USPS. After HOURS I finally got to the right person that could help me reroute the package. At the end it arrived a MONTH later! It was wet and also the box had holes in it.
I had to pay another 60 dollars for the phone calls and i will never send anything that big with USPS again.
So just a few weeks ago i sent a Postcard to my Girlfriend with USPS again and thought its just a postcard ill sent it with USPS. It still hasn't arrived jet...
U rather pay a little more but have the package arrive!
