It is basically 3/4 of the speed of ExpressPost and priced the same as Regular Parcel.

You would save, yes. Remember, a video card my be light but shipping companies use volumetric weight to calculate the cost of shipping.

I have my small business card from CP, and I really like the fact that the expedited parcel service is the same price as the standard service. So, you get a tracking number and a better shipping delay for a good price.

for the USA orgin shipping use USPS international parcel (5-7 day AIR)

for sure beats UPS ground for when @ your door hit you with fuel,brokerage fees Extra

never paid extra when used USPS for you pay upfront its more then UPS.

but i know when @ door no surprises under the allowed tarrif/customs cost
