Priority Mail Tips from the Guide:

· For 1 lb. packages, other than the Flat Rate Small Box -- which is the size of an old VHS video tape -- regular Priority Mail is the cheapest option for a 1 lb. package.

· Generally speaking, if you can ship your package in Flat Rate Padded Envelope you can save money. The only exception is if you are shipping to Zones 1 to 3 - Regional Rate Box A will be cheaper than the Flat Rate Padded Envelope.

· Regional Rate Box A is the lowest cost box you can use between 3 and 15 lbs.

· If you are shipping heavy packages that weigh 26 lbs. or more, you'll want to use Priority Mail Flat Rate. You pay the same low flat rate cost whether it weighs 1 lb. or 70 lbs. and cost efficiencies start at 26 lbs
