The postage for a regional B equals the Priority cost for a 4 lb 0 oz package, not 3 lb. You can double check that by entering any 2 zip codes at usps.com and calculating postage at 4 lbs. The rate will be the equal for a regional rate B box and a 4 lb. Priority package.

I'd hate to see mamas running into problems using 3 lbs. for the B rate. Some packages may be ok if they're light, but most would be arriving postage due using a 3 lb rate for a RRB box.

Please don't use fed ex labels if you aren't shipping fed ex! It jumps up their rates because its lost money. just like you shouldn't/can't use priority mail envelopes for regular or non priority mail.

Bumping because this is an awesome post. I do all and agree! Also you can put fragile items in a all priority video box and then put in a padded flat rate envelope and this will help protect things.
