I guess no one caught my drift, but the Xbox 360 is a heavy console and I am trying to figure out how to get Priority without getting charged up the wazoo.Shadowrunner wrote:

I really have no control over this, unfortunately. I also don't understand how using a Post Office provided box is being "cheap". Your own packaging and Priority is like $40-50, whereas a Flat Rate box is $13-15; I figure the savings can then be applied to purchasing insurance and that more than makes up for the potential "bad handling". Plus, I've had loads better experience with Priority at the USPS versus the alternative which is Parcel Post.Yazzinit wrote:

Excellent, an actual confirmation! Which one though, as the dimensions I was looking at online and eyeballing, the large flat rates are too squareish.
Once again, I do have my fair share shipping stuff, so it's not so much finding shipping materials and packaging well as trying to get around the high pricing to get anything more than two week long shipping. I don't think anyone likes Parcel Post, so the negativity is really unfounded, though not unexpected, I guess.
