You're good man. I've had cpu's sent to me with less protection then that.

It'll be fine. BTW... First Class less than 13 ounces will get there just as fast as Priority.

yeah it will be fine....

Isn't the only difference between first class and priority that priority is guaranteed to arrive within 2-3 days, whereas first class is not? Handling of the packages would be the same though. And in all probability, it'll arrive in about the same time as priority for such a small package, so you saved yourself some money at the same time!

First Class Mail = Priority Mail

The only difference is that First Class mail has to be 13 oz or lower while Priority Mail can be up to 70 lbs. Also, since it's sent in a bubble mailer, it will actually get processed with the all the rest of the priority mail items and yes it will be perfect and arrive safely.

No the only difference between the two has to do with weight restrictions. If you purchase your postage at the post office (physical location instead of paying online), the difference is a bit more construed and I don't know why. However, when purchasing online, it's just a weight limit. Neither are guaranteed though. The normal delivery time frame is 2-3 days excluding the shipping date.

What happens is when you drop it off at the Post Office, it gets routed to the processing and distribution center for your area and then is normally on a plane by 4 am to the closest Processing and Distribution center of your packages destination. Realistically, most packages actually arrive within 1-2 days but it depends on how much incoming mail they have worked before 5 am at that center as that's when the mail is dispatched out to the trucks to be taken to their respective local destinations to be put on a truck for delivery This process is the same for all items sent Priority Mail or First Class Mail. If you send it parcel post, the method changes. Instead of going on a plane, it gets routed to a larger Parcel Post sorting facility. In my area, it either goes to Memphis, TN or Atlanta, GA depending on the destination (if it's in GA or AL it goes to Atlanta but everywhere else goes to Memphis). Beyond there, it's a little sketchy. I know it gets sorted like Priority Mail and First Class Mail but instead of going on a plane, it's put on trucks to be driven to different locations.

Also, it's important to know that because Retail Post Office Clerks have a really bad habit of never bloody putting Parcel Post with just Parcel post and mixing it in with the Priority Mail, you've pretty much got a 30% chance that some of your Parcel Post mail will actually be sent as Priority Mail.

I like to know how my mail works.
