Pardon me if this question has been answered elsewhere. I am sending out an order for a fairly large number of books. The weight of all the books plus box and packing will be almost 25 lbs. The PBS link to Media Mail postage rates only shows prices for weights up to 20 lb and the CVS link to more prices does not work for me.

Does anyone know if I can send a bunch of books in one 25 lb box by Media Mail? I assume I can but I would like to know before I box them up. I cannot find the answer on the USPS website.

 

Thanks

Yep, Brandy's right.  The rate chart for media mail can be found here:

Just click on media mail.

Shelia, thanks for the link to the rate chart. I could not find that one on the USPS site...I guess I did not look long enough.

 

Thanks to both of you for the replies
