You should check the end of your driveway, next to the trash can, for packages more often. By leaving them out there for months you're subjecting them to the threat of being stolen, getting rained on, etc.

I always pay for anything that I order online through my credit card and sometimes with paypal as additional insurance. If I do not recieve the item in a timely manner, I file a dispute with paypal and the credit card company. the shipping companies could care less about me, but the other companies have enough clout that they will get answers.

This is new to me: A package from Amazon was sent via FedEx SmartPost, which apparently means that FedEx ships it, but then delivers it to the local post office, which delivers it with the mail.

UPS does this, too.
