I actually send and receive almost EVERYTHING through Priority Mail.
1) All my family (except one UPS traitor) works for USPS so I feel like I am contributing to their employment.
2) It is the cheapest 2-day solution (rarely does it take 3 days)
3) This mail is sent and handled separately that the other mail
4) USPS does not typically hem and haw at the insurance claims, just in case but I have never had to use it
The ONLY drawback is that it does not have decent tracking like the other carriers.
Hope you receive your package safely and we look forward to pictures!!!!
I agree that Priority mail is reliable and fast. You can also track it online through USPS.com. But sometimes when a package is really heavy (like some Coach bags in gift box), I prefer Fedex as it will turn out to be cheaper and with insurance already included.
I ship all my items to buyers in the US via priority mail with delivery confirmation. If the item is over $250, I ship priority with insurance and signature confirmation. I've found it to be extremely reliable.
I ALWAYS use usps priority mail. just be sure and atleast get delivery confirmation if not signature confirmation and/or insurance. I have had great luck with them though, and if you are shipping using their free boxes and flat rate boxes is a great thing too!
