At what $$ amount do you buy insurance for a used curriculum purchase?

I think you have to gauge your own tolerance for loss. Personally, I would always pay for insurance for anything $100 or more and also for something in the $50-100 range if it is really hard to come by used. Otherwise I just ask if I can pay for adding delivery confirmation (if it is not included in the price and the item is more then $20 or so.)

Agreeing with Claire - though my tolerance for loss is lower than hers :) I always get it for about $20 or more - one thing I want to show the seller that I want that package to arrive on my doorstep :)

Thanks! I took your advice and opted for insurance.
