i will give you the best free hint, never ever use fed-ex to ship to philippines, their customs people will flag it and charge you 10 dollars a day storage just because they know they can do it, they will make up total crap reason why they did it. they know you must then create a fed-ex account and pay the fee, and 100 dollars is if your lucky and catch it fast.

+Doris C - "... helping for moves." +MrIHADANACCOUNT is correct. I understand you may not be aware, but it is illegal to use USPS Priority boxes for that. Pickup any USPS Box and read the notice. It may be worded slightly different from one box to another but basically it says: "This box remains the property of USPS and is provided for use in shipping by USPS Priority. Any other use is prohibited and is punishable by fine or imprisonment". (Well, something like that). And: "Any other use is prohibited", includes using them for moving, wrapping them in paper and using them to ship by FedEx or another carrier, or anything else you can think of that is not shipping by USPS Priority. You might not have known it, or you might think it's not likely they'd find out, but if you happen to be the one they catch, it won't end well.

+Doris C - I'm sorry to hear of your bad experience shipping gifts to your nephew. I don't know what shipping service you used, but shipping by USPS Priority Mail includes tracking and $50 or $100 of insurance per box. This is included on all packages for no extra charge. I don't know if it's too late to file a claim, but you should check out if you can still file a claim. In any case, keep it in mind next time you ship, if the package doesn't arrive, file a claim right away. UPS also includes tracking and $100 of insurance per box. I'm not sure about FedEx.

I see people standing in line at the USPS all the time they usually get hosed with shipping as I have noticed the USPS employees always upsell or just automatically suggest the higher rates. Never ship at the post office do it on your computer you get a big discount. For the ebay shippers when you are shipping always enter the weight and go to the compare shipping to see what is the cheapest (and thru ebay you can ship 1st class up to 1lb and the PO I think it is only 13oz which can be a lot of money saved) . If you need to cram it to fit it though spend the extra money so you don't POff your customers. Always play with your shipping because over a year your savings can really add up. Another thing some ebayer's don't know if you pay extra for a store every quarter you can get $25 free shipping supplies.And the last thing I don't think regional rate C is around anymore.

Cool video BUT....You didn't give up any of the "roton gravy trains" true behavior. ESPECIALLY in the holiday season. Usually within seconds of you dropping of your package. Then the back service worker will take a full "jeep" back to the processing area, Where very large heavy "BMC"'s are in a semi circle with labels for location destination on each. there there are several "sorters" who will with great skill and professionalism start dropping YOUR packages into them according to where they are going....BASKETBALL STYLE !! And when they miss....and they here that sickening sound of "crunch" or "crash" that package shipped with a whole bunch of others in a "bin" to the damage crew. And yes, they do it again!! AND don't CARE and thinks it is FUNNY. So, if you are to give out poop, give out THE REAL POOP!! But hey. most folks don't know ....

If your stuff weighs more than 2 lbs, but less than 15 lbs, and will fit in a "USPS Regional Rate Box A", use it, for domestic shipping.

I used to work at UPS the way they handle packages Is Not Great there's a lot of throwing not the Sorting which is what most people would assume but actually in the filling of the truck a lot of the people will build a wall and then backfill so basically they throw your packages especially small ones... Oversized packages things over 70 pounds get thrown too but that is due entirely to the way they sort them Long story short it's like a kids Slide the big metal ones from the 80s and they tip them tossed them kick them down > the reason they do this is because UPS has a habit of making it a one person job when it's two people required to lift it. I was extremely badly treated as an employee - beyond that as a foster child I had been promised free education through the program called lifts... and both as a foster child and as an employee they made it really difficult to claim On the subject of my no longer being employed there I still haven't gotten my last paycheck*

Old video but NEW subscriber!! I LOVE this video and where have I been that I didn't know about you!?!? Seriously!! You are funny and informative - two great qualities I look for in my content! Will be binge watching and being jealous of all the giveaways I'm sure (I never win at those things). Random picker-thingys just never want to find my name apparently. LOL This is why I don't buy scratch-off lottery tickets or lottery tickets at all anymore.

Hello Matt, Really enjoy your you tube channel. I know this is more than a year old, but I tried to get the "cube" box from USPS, and they looked at me as of I was speaking a foreign language. They told me all the boxes are on the front. Is there another way to order the "cube" box? Thanks

save money don't use fedex or usp and don't lose customer because of sorry carrier option. I will never shop from website with fedex or usp

That completely depends on the size/weight/destination of the package. I shipped an item today from SC to Washington state. It weighed 16lbs and was approximately 14 inches square. USPS was $54, UPS was$28. I ship a lot of items every day and 80% of the time USPS is best but on large/heavy/far items it is always best to check.

Another way to save money but "not a lot" most the time a little over a $1,00 but I ship several of them at a time. is to use the smallest flat rate box and I always ding in the corners and then slide it into a flat rate envelope..

Also let your subscribers know that many times the manufacturer's box is a heavier weight cardboard than the Amazon box they pay for.
