USPS Regional Rate Boxes debut today

Mock all you want, I know you're secretly excited about these new boxes. Currently when shipping an item via Priority Mail (2-3 day delivery) customers pay the same price wether going cross-country or cross-city lines. These new boxes operate like first class mail, where cost is distance dependent.

You can order them here: http://www.usps.com/shipping/regionalratebox.htm

This has been a big year for the USPS. Between these new boxes and the padded envelopes for flat rate items, they are really stepping up their shipping options.
