What happens if you buy PBS postage with DC, and the book goes lost in he mail? Do I get to keep the credit, or does the other member recieve their credit back? This was a highly WL book, and I am hoping it shows up, but the DC says it is in New Jersey, and it needs to be in Wyoming. I mailed it about 2  and a half weeks ago. Should I be concerned?

Thanks,

McKenna

McKenna, since you purchased PBS postage you got your credit when you marked the book mailed.  PBS will return a credit to the Receiver who doesn't get the book if it does go Lost, but you keep your credit...you paid for this credit assurance when you bought the postage.   :-)  Also, it may be still delivered, you've got another week and a half before it's marked Lost.

Don't be too concerned about the New Jersey/Wyoming thing yet.  When I track my DC on books I've mailed I'm always fascinated by the wonky routes they take.  I'm in Wisconsin, mailed a book to California, and it went via Pennsylvania.  indecision
