I've been sending a lot of stuff USPS first class lately and the post office guy alway asks me if I want tracking. I always say "no".

On the receipt, however, are "PID" numbers (Package ID?), and if I plug them into the USPS web site, they effectively act as tracking numbers.

So the question becomes: What is the purpose of buying "tracking" with first class mail if it apparently already comes with it?

Its not supposed to be available with the PID but apparently the system has a problem. Enjoy until its fixed

Ah. Makes sense.

How'd you find that out?

Their tracking system is B0rk3d anyway. Sometimes you get tracking, sometimes not, sometimes it's flat out wrong.

Truth, a lot of the time the tracking don't work until after you've received your mail.
