If its under 1lb then USPS First Class is the cheapest. You can use paypal to create shipment labels at a slight discount: www.paypal.com/shipnow [paypal.com]
I recently used shipment label from paypal and the discount is good. Except it does not check whether or not the address is valid, I made a typo with the address and now the package is taking it's time returning if it ever does. (Other sites like USPS, UPS, and etc. all alerted the address was invalid that I inputted at paypal) Those using paypal should double/triple check the address, otherwise will end up wasting time and money Mad.

Saved $2.05 on Ground shipper.
The 25% off essentially brings the price of Ground down to USPS Priority Mail (USPS' Ground equivalent service)

So to be clear this code doesn't expire until the end of the year?
These things tend to never last hat long but the deal does say that... How is this price compared to USPS?

No, you can actually stack this discount with the eBay rates (which can save an easy 40% on large items) .

Ive seen things get over 50% off when I stacked EASY promo code with eBay discount.

The savings are even more when if you compare a stacked promo code + ebay discount to UPS store rates.

It makes UPS stores look like predatory thieves with their jacked up rates.

I just shipped an entire mid tower gaming desktop that weighed 20 lbs from NC to Ohio for only $19. I can only imagine the rates Amazon gets.
$19 is pretty standard for 20lbs and my company doesn't even get that good rates.

I don't understand logistic and their pricing...to send a 1 cubic foot box with about 10 lbs halfway the USA it cost me $60, yet I order something on amazon that's about $10 from about the same distance and I can get free shipping. I know Amazon is a multi billion company and negotiated a good price, but why not extend that similar pricing to people who ship less frequent? Is it cause UPS market isn't consumer but business and don't want to waste resources with 1 item per person? but rather 100 item per business? and if we pay a huge amount they'll deal with us?

I would definitely ship more to my grandparents and family if it was reasonable. I don't sell any large items on eBay because of the cost to ship it and that cost for an item under $100 would not be worth it. USPS is a few dollars cheaper so I go with them...but I hate USPS. It just don't make sense to ship a birthday gift or christmas gift for items under $100 when its going to cost me $60 or more.
Amazon is UPS's #1 account. Any company that commits to X packages per year and meets that goal gets a discount. Higher ship rates = bigger discount. There is a lot that goes into negotiations with shipping carriers and companies typically use brokers.

Since we are discussing shipping in general, you should also be aware of the "dimensional weight" concept if you do ship items.

Basically, you're going to be hosed when you ship something that is volumetrically large but has light mass. There is limited space on trucks, planes, and rail, so the shipper is going to make you account for that loss of space for other customers.

This also means you should be SMART about packaging items and condense things down as much as you can, without sacrificing protection. I've occasionally made my own "boxes" to fit around oddly shaped goods, and this has often saved me around $10-$15 in shipping fees.

Well hopefully this will get eBay sellers to slow down usage of DHL Global Snail.

Had a $99 shipment, using my ups account dropped it to $80 and using BETTER dropped it to $60

Not bad.

Is that $10 item 10lbs and shipped in a 1 cu. ft. box? Or was it a sub 12oz package that fit into a standard bubble wrap mailer or any weight that will fit into a USPS standard sized box? A 2 oz item that fits in a mailer cots $1.15 for me to ship from SLC, UT to Edison, NJ via First Class (up to 12 oz which is $2.85). A 10lb 1cuft box would be at a minimum $38.58.

And then, to make it even worse, they use their nifty little FedEx/UPS smart post/innovations "deal" that the USPS obviously didn't read to save more money on shipping. Have you noticed how most things mailed that way are Mylar bubble wrap envelopes?

Also, Amazon has baked in the cost of Prime shipping into a TON of items these days. Even their add-ons aren't a good deal anymore. Amazon can be more expensive than normal retail stores nowadays, and frankly, Amazon is often the last to match prices on deals at other stores. I've ended up buying a lot from Target, Best Buy, NewEgg, B&H and if I have no other option WalMart, because of that. And the great thing for me about Target price matches is an extra 5% off.

So, yes, Amazon gets crazy discounts due to volume, but they're also baking that cost into the item. Yes, you will always pay more for shipping than any e/retailer.

Don't forget about the prepaid boxes the USPS sells. And don't forget to add on insurance!

Its a predatory relationship. Amazon shippers, UPS, USPS, need the money, so agreeing to 20 million deliveries for pennies of profit each is still profit. They give Amazon such low rates because they are scared Amazon will go to Fedex, or what is slowly happening, Amazon is building its own shipping and delivery service. Also for USPS, the post office can say 'look we delivered 50 million packages this year, we are losing money so you need to fund us with tax money or else Americans lose out'.

Basically Amazon's near monopoly has shipping companies by the balls, just like Walmart had businesses; theres a story about how Vlasic pickles was contacted by walmart to be sold in stores, walmart wanted more pickles for less money, Vlasic said they barely make money as is, and walmart told them if they wouldnt budge they would put another brand in the biggest retailer in the US, so Vlasic caved because they didnt want to be replaced. Sales of the pickles at walmart surpassed more expensive and profitable grocery store sales, which meant Vlasic was making less money, which contributed to their bankruptcy.

TLDR; Damned if you do submit to Amazon, Walmart, etc, and damned if you dont. These companies soak up all the profits, and dont care what happens to the companies they use to get their profits.
Amazon is building their own because they're tired of paying UPS and the others. It's not even a rate issue it's more of a problem of the insane amount of packages. UPS probably takes on more than the others and we still have trouble handling it. It also doesn't help that Amazon doesn't have a clue wtf they're going to send so they'll tell us 3 trucks and we get 5 or 6 sometimes. 53 footers of padded envelops and the small boxes are fun and obliterate our small sort Smilie. UPS isn't scared Amazon will go to FedEx, FedEx is smart and tells them no, UPS hasn't learned how to do that yet. Amazon is a huge PR cluster @#$#@ for UPS. Amazon promises delivery times during the holidays that we have zero chance of making service on. Works out for Amazon though, UPS has taken the hit on Amazon's asinine service promises a few times in recent years.
