Hi so im sending all the forms this May 21st and im wondering which one is better?

USPS or UPS?

if in case USPS, will it be ok to send it to the FBAS South Dearborn address via Express Delivery? Or it should really have to be the P.o. lockbox address? Thanks

Im checking on each website, i find it more cheaper to send it via USPS :yes:

Yes, it is OK to send it to that address via express delivery through USPS. That's exactly what I did.

Thanks.

I did USPS priority mail, it cost $6 something and they allowed me to obsessively track it across the country. :)

(Or wherever Illinois is...geography is not my strength.)

I used UPS only because I've had USPS screw things up too many times for my liking, a very current example being some posters we ordered that left KY on the 7th, and have not arrived in AL yet, although they were apparently seen in GA a couple days ago.

We sent ours USPS. Regular first class mail. Big brown envelope. No problems :) but Express mail with tracking is the most common choice I think.
