I'm probably 'Late getting to the party', but I JUST read about the upcoming 'PRIORITY MAIL' rate changes...

Rate Change

USPS Priority Mail® prices to change effective Sunday, September 7, 2014

The United States Postal Service will change prices for Priority Mail Services on Sunday, September 7. These changes will affect all customers who mail over-sized large envelopes, flat-rate envelopes, flat-rate boxes and packages.  The USPS is introducing substantial reductions to attract customers who ship parcels by ground in the six- to 20-pound range.
The new rates only apply to Priority Mail. The January 2014 rates for First-Class Mail, Standard Mail, Standard Post, Media Mail, Library Mail, Priority Mail Express and International mail will not change.

I hadn't heard it either, but that is heavier than I usually ship anyways so it probably won't help me much. Rats! Priority Mail rates seem so darn expensive now.
