The US Postal service is ripping people off with this charge of

theirs for priority mail. People listen real close, your mail is

not going to get there any faster by paying more.

It moves at the same pace as all other mail.

Don't waste your money!

Priority gets special treatment

In most cases Priority mail does arrive faster than first class mail. A letter will arrive just as quickly as a priority package because the letter mail is processed on machines. Priority mail is processed mostly by hand. With priority mail you can add delivery confirmation for 45 cents and know when the package or letter arrived.

PRIORITY MAIL IS JUST THAT --- A PRIORITY

Most often, Priority Mail does arrive at it's destination in the same amount of time as First Class Mail. The reason that you pay more for Priority Mail is because it is sorted at the processing facilities, loaded on the trucks, and loaded on the airplanes before other classes of mail. Many times, First Class and Priority mail are riding side-by-side, however, during heavy mailing periods ( Christmas ), if there is not enough room on the truck or airplane, we curtail lower classes of mail in order to expidite Priority Mail. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of commercial airlines, and we can only load X amount of pounds of mail on the planes. If the plane is full, we load up the Priority Mail first, and send the other classes of mail on a later flight. So, what you are paying for with Priority Mail is really no different than, say, paying an extra $5-$10 at an auto dealearship's service center for "express lube and oil" service, to be placed at the front of the line.
