Which is part of the reason why it takes so long. If you sent it CP when you get tracking you're also actually getting faster service. Plus with the border stuff can sit there forever, it's lame.

As I recall the price for tracking was almost as much as the cost to ship w/o it. (I am reasonably confident it will turn up but this particular mail run has taken longer than any previous one I have done)

Of course. But I had not UOA'd this particular oil previously and so far I have done 4 or 5 consecutive UOAs...I was hoping to keep this continuity.

Because it's an actual upgraded service, not just tracking. It would be nice if you could get tracking for like an extra $1 but they don't do that. I agree it will show up at some point thumbsup

What does this have to do with Blackstone then ? Sounds like an issue with the postal service.

I don't think my post was critical of BS. I have no doubt it has been lost/delayed due to the CP or USPS.

it is still in the same stage after 1 week, but yesterday I received my oil reports from Blackstone lol. Posting from Greece in the cheapest way (9 euros for 3 samples) and getting the results 10 days later is really astonishing... USA
