If you’re shipping a large, light box, Parcel Select® is cheaper than Priority Mail® because it will not get charged for dimensional-weight pricing like Priority Mail® does. With Parcel Select® your package will be rated off the actual weight, no matter how large the package is.
But watch out for balloon rate pricing if you're shipping a really big package with Parcel Select®. If your package's Length (longest side) + Girth (Width * 2 + Height * 2) is between 84" and 108", for all zones you'll be charged the 20-pound rate instead of the actual weight's rate.
