You can look it up on their websites I believe. you should be able to put the weight and dimensions of the package as well as where you are shipping to (and from where) and it will give you a chart with the prices depending which service you choose. personally, I usually find the post office cheapest, but maybe not them most reliable.

generally, I find UPS is cheaper.

Although, USPS (united states postal service) is generally the cheapest (and FedEx and UPS both contract with USPS to use USPS’s shipping routes, btw).

I’m drawn to UPS as well but not because of the color, although I do like brown 😉

Our UPS guy is SO much nicer than our FedEx guy.  FedEx guy is so rude, I hate it when he comes in.

I think they are pretty comparable.  I always tend to use UPS, because the driver that services our apartment knows me from work, and he delivers so much he will go out of his way to bring me packages to work if I am not home.

But, I haven’t had any issues with FedEx either, so I really don’t have a preference,  LOL.

I was asking the same thing yesterday, and I read an article which says that USPS is cheapest if your article is under 2 lbs, but if its more, then Fed Ex is cheapest. UPS is the most expensive all around.
