I need a favor...

I'm at work right now and a mama just bought my BG AIO's...my printer is being wonky at home so I'd love to print a label before I leave work...if it's the cheapest shipping method.

Can anyone tell me what 5 BG AIO's weigh?? On Amazon it looked like the average was about 8 oz each.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Are they sized AIOs mama? What size if so? Or are they BGEs? None of these will weigh 8 oz each though!

If they're BGEs, likely the most economical shipping will be a padded FRE since they're fairly heavy. (They will fit, but you have to cram them in there LOL).

They are larges...should have mentioned that.

I thought 8 oz sounded high! I don't have any shipping supplies at home except brown craft paper...would it be smarter to do a flat-rate box? I want the cheapest on my end...but obviously do what's required to get it to the mama in time.

5 BG's are going to be over 13oz, so the cheapest way will be Priority using a medium flat rate box. You don't need weight for that.

Yes, they're over 13 oz, so first class is a no go.

However, the cheapest option will be a padded flat rate envelope which is half the price of a medium flat rate box.

OP, you don't need a weight for any flat rate packages. 5 Large BG AIOs *will* fit in a padded flat rate envelope which the post office will provide you for free. The cost is $5.15 I believe.

I really didn't think they would all fit in an envelope so that's why I suggested the box I try not to overpack when I ship.

I utilize the padded FREs whenever possible as it's usually the most economical way to ship Priority. I always tape the crap out of the packages though LOL, just to be sure they arrive at their destination safely.

Yes, print the label for a flat rate envelope, get your padded FRE at the PO, and I'd recommend taping the package VERY well as it will be stuffed. If you can bring a roll of tape with you to the PO along with your prepaid label you print, you can save a trip.
