I use it all the time. In fact it's my preference. I find that Priority takes just as much time, but their tracking sucks sour frog's balls. You pay more and get less.

There is however a 4lb pound limit with First Class then it has to go Priority.

I've had a couple of First Class items turn up faster than Priority. It's pathetic. I've sent feedback to USPS and heard nothing in return.

I recently got something sent Fedex Priority and it took three days. $32.

USPS is a fucking joke.

It should been last week , Jersey City is close to Jersey Airport but it went New York First Class. My Mcfarlane Spidey should be here this week or next week because of customs ‏ Shocked

My series 2 2012 complete with variants had not been shipped yet and Black Widow (black version) with Winter Solider hopefully would arrive today.

I think you need to have an account with Fedex (the seller). I get stuff from Sideshow and it's their shipping method of choice.

It usually depending where it is coming from. In most cases it fairly much the same. Priority in the USA goes all Air internal, while first class usually goes truck until it exit destination. (so if I shipped something being in the Mid South of the USA. Priority is faster.) From memory some exit ports for mail are Denver, Chicago, Washington, New York, San Diego, San Fransisco & Los Angeles. So if it coming from close from there use First class.

First class does have weight and size limitations. Priority you do get tracking which if it works is great, but with that it also has items that only track til exit of the USA.

Necro Reboot of Sorts.

Warning USPS (United States Postal Service) has increased all there charges drastically as of Jan 27th. The biggest to be effected is international postage in some case increases by 30%. So buying from the USA may now not be as price effective as it use to be.

For example the small flat rate (Which fits about 3 DVD) was $17 now $23.
