Bought a dozen wine red shrimp as an xmas gift for myself. Paid for express mail and all, USPS delays an extra day and took two days to get to me.
Look what happened... :mad:

Merry xmas to me. 12 dead shrimp.:mad::mad::mad:

DOA should cover it... since I stayed home to get the package immediately and opened the bag within 5 minutes and e-mailed him right away with pictures. I won't get a refund on the $35 shipping, but I do hope to get $240 back. This hurts :( I've been anticipating these guys for over 2 months and it took me a few weeks to even locate a seller. These were his last few shrimp that were available, I think. I'm truly devastated. Not a single one survived.

Well, if you happen to get a refund, I know of a seller in Oregon that can help you.

Also, the seller can request a refund on the shipping fees. From my understanding, USPS gives you a guaranteed time only on express, if they do not meet that, then you can take the receipt and get a refund on postage.

Thank you so much, Shadowfang!!

And thank you everyone for your sympathies. It's truly tragic. Money isn't 100% an issue here, because in the end, I do feel awful that the shrimp died. I know some people see these are just ornamental but a life is a life to me. And the fact that they were getting shipped to me and died due to the cold or whatever happened, I feel awful about having to put them through that. Very sad.

Express is guaranteed 1-2 days. It arrived on the second day ONE minute away from being late. Seriously, it arrived at 11:59, that's when the doorbell rang and the website said it would arrive sometime before 12 PM. I watched the clock tick, literally minute by minute as it drew closer to 12. 11:59...!!!
