It said I've already requested a trackable. I know that, but I didn't receive it. Oh, well, I'm with USAA, and nobody can beat their rates, so I'll never switch to Geico anyhow.

I got the message that mine was in the mail too, the first time these were available. Anyhoo, I used a different email address on the form this time, and it went through, and hopefully I'll receive the bug this time (again, it said it was in the mail after I submitted the form). Who knows, maybe I'll end up with two of them?

Yeah, when I signed up a few weeks ago, I had to check the box that said I'd put them into circulation within two weeks. However, it's been about three weeks since I requested one!

Mine came today as well - after reading lots of notes about how tiny these things are, I was still surprised by how tiny it is. Just a tad too big for a bison tube, and a tad too long for a film canister.

You're lucky that groundspeak actually remembered to put the TB in the letter Laughing.
