Yes you can ship priority using your own poly. But you can do the flat rate stuff.

You can but why? Priority supplies are free. You can get them from your PO or order them shipped to you online for free.

some people live in the sticks and have polymailers on hand, but it'd take 3-5 days to get the priority supplies (or longer! eek!)

I just assumed the cost of supplies was built into the cost of shipping something in a flat rate container... maybe not.

There is priority mail packaging like boxes of many, many sizes that are also free and not flat rate. (Most of the time, flat rate is NOT the best price, unless you're shipping far or shipping bricks! Or just don't have time or a scale) If you use your own packaging, put a priority mail sticker on it- just in case. They are also free. They used to have free tape as well, but too many abused the privilege and they took it away. Boo!

I'm finding the flat rate padded envelopes ($5.10 online) and the regional rate boxes to be pretty cost effective over regular priority.

And distance makes all the difference with regular rates. I shipped a nearly 4lb package for $5.90 priority to someone who lives about an hour and a half from me...cheaper than gas!

It's definitely all about location! The regional boxes are great if you are within a couple zones. The regional B size is less than the medium FRB and costs less for many of the places I ship!
