I guess I've never understood paying for next-day shipping for forms that take months to process...

The less time they spend bouncing around in the back of a truck, the less chance they have to go missing. I think.

I went to the post office Wednesday afternoon in Las Vegas to mail my (OK, my wife's)  I-485 AoS package.  The options were Priority Mail for about $7, which would take 2-3 days, or Priority Mail Express for $25.50, with a money back guarantee to arrive by noon the next day.


I figured I've spent so much already on this process that I might as well plunk down my credit card and pay $25.50 for the next day service.  But I wasn't happy about it.


Went online with the tracking number and set up email and text message notifications, because I'm neurotic.


I was alerted yesterday that the package arrived at the P.O. Box in Chicago at 12:39 p.m. local time.


Did I go back to the post office today to claim my $25.50 refund because the package didn't arrive by noon? I did. 


And she handed me back cash, which felt even sweeter. 

That is fantastic!  Thanks for sharing.

Whenever I have used USPS during our visa journey, I have always opted for return receipt requested. I just want to make sure it got to the Lockbox location, after that it is like just another brick in the wall for months.....months.....month....

Completed: K1/K2 (271 days) - AOS/EAD/AP (134 days) - ROC (279 days)
