Here's why you shouldn't use Priority Mail Regional Rate

If you used your own comparably-sized packaging and shipped with Priority Mail Cubic instead of Regional Rate, you could get the same service standard for less.

Both sizes of Regional Rate Box A are just barely over 0.2 cubic feet. If you shipped a 0.2 tier box with Priority Mail Cubic, you would save up to 27% compared to Regional Rate.

Both sizes of Regional Rate Box B are just barely over 0.4 cubic feet. If you used your own packaging to ship a 0.4 cubic feet box with Priority Mail Cubic, you would save up to 28% compared to Regional Rate. If you resized your box down just a little to be in the 0.3 cubic feet pricing tier, you'd save even more!
