I'd check FedEx Ground for rates.  They are consistently cheaper than
any of the above, and you can ship from any Kinkos, since FedEx own
them now.

When I was doing a lot of EBay stuff year before last, essentially I found
if something was going to cost more than flat rate USPS priority or
around $10 via parcel post, FedEx ground would be the best rate.  I
sent huge electronic keyboard (music) with it's folding metal stand and
stool for ~$60 iirc.
