    That doesn't correspond at all to my experience. I'm currently waiting for an order sent by media mail that shipped February 18, and two-week waits are typical. And I live in the middle of a major metropolitan area (DC), not the boonies. Also, a couple of years ago a book sent by media mail was damaged in transit.

    In contrast, UPS ground shipments routinely arrive in one day, at least if they're shipped from somewhere in the eastern US. I never pay for UPS two-day or next-day shipping.
    • Got a media mail package this week that I ordered late last week. Probably only took about 4 business days to get here.

      Meanwhile, my other media mail package was delayed from Amazon, and when it finally shipped, they FedExed it. It arrived last night.
