I would gladly pay a few bucks more to avoid that kind of wait.

I was thinking that but I selected 9-12 day USPS. So should be here within that range, right?

And I got off the phone with USPS for question about tax&duty, lady said its up to customs.

Anyone think I might get it quicker for the mail delivery selection option I chosen?
Probably not. The 9-12 day USPS just means the in- transit time. What they don't tell you about is the time spent sitting in customs. They use bulk shipping, and that takes even longer. If it goes the Xiamen-to-New York route your'e in for a long wait. I have waited as long as six weeks for mine to arrive, and all the phone calls and website bitching didn't help squat.  And the least amount of time I've waited was eighteen days. But who knows, you might get lucky. And don't worry, it will get there, eventually.

I know next time to spend the extra money at vape shop. I really needed that rba kit. Buying coils is eating my wallet.
Thisight set me over the edge and start smoking again, cheaper. My vape shop is far and the coils are expensive.

RE: Faattech?
Reason I'm stressed now is that I had enough money for coils for 9 days. Dunno what IMA do afterwords. Maybe I should look into a rebuildable deck atomizer. 

Cuz I got authentic rba and coils coming for my crown in with that rx200.

Yep, you got lucky. For some reason, the Chicago route is much faster than the New York route, the customs there usually doesn't hold stuff at all. The last time my order landed in New York it sat there for fifteen days. It's always a roll of the dice with them, glad it worked out for you this time.

So customs is in Chicago? I might still have days before it gets released from Chicago? We will see and will keep thread posted. See how fast this route is from China to home.

Yep. When FT ships stuff it goes to the ISC, meaning international service center, aka customs, in China. When it lands in the U.S. it goes to another ISC, then is cut loose to usps for destination shipping. For some reason, the Chicago ISC is much faster than the one in New York. My orders  have always come much faster going through Chicago. When ordering stuff from ft that's the best you can hope for, you can't tell them which way to ship stuff. Your order should arrive in a few days.

Im thinking it might be here tomorrow. It landed from Chicago to Indianapolis and right now I think it is heading to Gary Indiana then local post office. Lol a lot of destination's.

If u look at a map, my package is all over the place.

Quite possible. Good thing the usps runs 24 hrs. I used to live not far from Gary, in South Bend. Does it still smell as bad as it used to?
