  • We use UPS. Why? Because after about 4 lbs worth of weight, it becomes cheaper to ship via UPS as opposed to the US Postal Service. Also, unlike USPS, the tracking number and insurance are included in the price and aren't extra.

  • UPS. For personal reasons.

  • UPS because I have too many issues with USPS and packages being lost or damaged.

  • I use USPS Priority Mail for all of my packages. I sell on eBay and it saves so much money with the flat rate shipping.

  • I use USPS because it is closet and easiest to print shipping labels.

  • USPS usually. It's not necessarily because their cheaper, but their location is so much more convenient for us.

  • USPS because I can print the labels through paypal for business and because they are cheaper for personal. I have had a lot of issues with UPS leaving packages without verifying address and we've often gotten the neighbor's items and ours are often not really delivered. Fed Ex is great, but they cost a lot more than USPS so we go with the cheaper option.

  • USPS - Priority or Flat Rate Boxes for the Most Part. Love printing right at home for both work and personal and having my mailman pick them up from my front door. I have had no issues other than a package arriving one day late once but it was a major snowstorm up north so no one seemed to mind.
