Smart idea. Especially since UPS will attempt a delivery 3 days in a row and then ship it back. And who knows how long the mint would take to credit your card back.

My UPS shipments come to my office and our courier will just bring them up from the front desk and have someone unlock my office and put them in there, but I still don't like the thought of that much currency being in my office for a long period of time. If I know I will be gone for more than a few days at a time, I just have the shipment sent to the PO Box
