    Default Shipping your case - PPA Fed-Ex Discount

    Just want to encourage others to create an account with Fed-Ex using your PPA discount.

    Two years ago, I shipped my case from the UPS store and it cost me $49. Last year, Joe C mentioned he paid $60 to ship USPS.

    I just shipped my case to SEPPA for $11.65 using my Fed-Ex account. Great thing is, I can do everything online and schedule them to pick-up at my studio (which is next to my house in the middle of nowhere).

    Hope this saves someone some time and frustration.

    How did you manage that? I just shipped my case through Fed-Ex with the PPA discount it cost me $77. Are you one day shipping from Florida? Cause I had to pay for next day air. And when I scheduale a pick up I can never get it until the next day which would not have gotten it there by 5:00 tomorrow.

    Ok, I really dislike the word 'just'. I should clarify, I shipped mine Friday and it is being delivered today.

    Yeah, next day air is REALLY expensive. If you already have the PPA discount, then that's the least expensive alternative I know of.

    When I shipped UPS, I sent it regular ground and it cost me $49. I remember Heather saying it cost her about the same. They charge extra for 'irregular' packaging.

    I've had my FedEx account (Association discount) for years. If you take it to a FedEx customer counter, and I am often going by, there is more savings. YES, do the label online does save.

    Yes, and then they had the audacity to charge me an additional $10 a week after-the-fact because of the "irregular" packaging. I was pretty ticked and stopped using UPS altogether because of it.

    FWIW,
    If you are using WHCC, the boxes that they send 16x20 in are deep enough for most cases to fit into. Saving 10$ each way.

    Fed Ex screwed me over. I paid $77 to ship next day and they didn't get it there. I have no idea if SEPPA will accept the case tomorrow or not.

    This scared me so I checked the tracking number on mine(UPS). It said "Out for Delivery" at 6:30am but it doesn't say it was delivered yet. I'm hoping it made it and the tracking information is just not updated yet.

    The deadline was 5pm but I'm hoping that all is good being that he "Met Customer Woman". I'm guessing he had a truck load of cases.
