Does anyone know if the USPS's Medial Mail rates change per pound after 7 pounds? It seems to increase by $0.41 per pound, but after the 7-pound rate of $4.87, it increases by $0.39. Is this right or just not correctly updated by USPS?

Just a curiosity, as I was looking at the higher rates to mail some heavy packages.

While I'm not completely certain...I'm guessing that it does change.  I seem to recall reading somewhere on here that the heavier the package, the better deal it was with media mail.

Interestingly enough, my package was just over 6 pounds, so I was able to use the $4.87 rate.

Jennifer, you're correct.  Up to 7 lbs, the rate increases by 41 cents per pound.  After, it increases by 39 cents a pound.
