Default Shipping recommendations for packages of top loaders

I bought a bunch of top loaders that are not the right size and it will be too costly to return and pay the shipping on (they had free shipping when I purchased them.) So I was wondering how board members would recommend shipping packages of loaders in the most cost effective yet safe manner.

Thanks!

Depending on how many there are...the best way would be a flat rate mailer...just make sure you choose the right size....

The cheapest way if you can fit them is put them in a flat rate padded mailer...only 5 bucks to ship

Thanks.
What do you recommend if they buy just 1 package of 10 loaders?

Regular Sized Top Loaders (Ultra Pro Premium brand) weigh 8 oz for a pack of 25. That can go First Class Mail, wrapped in a poly-bubble mail (which adds very little weight, maybe 0.2 oz), that would be 9 oz total, First Class, would be $2.66 shipping cost. First Class is $1.64 for the first 3 oz, and $0.17 for each additional oz up to 13 oz.

If you have to pay $1-$2 for a poly-bubble mail, then you might as well just forget the poly mail and First Class, bump up to Priority Flat Rate Padded Envelope like Dacubs says. $5. Easy.

This presumes you are using eBay or PayPal online shipping. Going to the post office is always more expensive.

Those 10 count 138 pts are much lighter than the regular 25 count top loaders. (I can't get an exact weight for you until tonight.) But you can definitely save some money by shipping First Class, using a poly-bubble mailer.

Where are you in Chicago and how much are you looking for on them (minus shipping)?
