Parcel Select Ground is cheaper than Priority Mail, but it's extremely slow... don't use it unless you have to!

Parcel Select Ground is an extremely slow service, with up to several weeks for delivery compared to the 1-3 day delivery of Priority Mail. We don't recommend using Parcel Select unless you don't care when the package arrives, or unless you have to use a ground-only service because you're shipping flammable or hazardous products.
