Media mail, how do I love thee?

[ #23328 ]
Let me count the ways.

$ 45.53 - $21.04 == $24.49  ( 64 pounds  )
$ 39.62 - $13.24 == $26.38  ( 38 pounds  )
$ 42.63 - $16.54 == $26.09  ( 49 pounds  )
-------------------------------------
$127.78 - $50.82 == $76.96  ( 151 pounds )

I love you $76.96 much. That above is the price to ship a package from Pittsburgh to Portland (about 2500 miles as the car drives) via USPS Parcel Post vs USPS Media Mail (what used to be "book rate"). 151 pounds of books, CDs and DVDs in 3 packages for just $50.82 vs $127.78 conventionally for a savings of $76.96. Sure it can take up to 2 weeks but who cares?
