    What do they mean by "expedited" shipping? Priority mail? Regular US SNAIL MAIL...? I asked, but it seems to take awhile to get a response. This is my first order with them.

    USPS expedited shipping is priority mail. Standard shipping is by USPS media mail, which is also used for free shipping. However, I have heard that DVDEmpire may substitute first class mail for priority if the shipment involves a single DVD.

    Snail mail can take up to 3 weeks, depending on where they are and where you are, and how busy the postal service is too. If you're starting out, try both of them.

    For me, expedited means that they'll get it out of their door that day. Of course, their responsibility ends there too.

    What I do is to let my wish list pile up and ship them all UPS 2nd day air. That way I know when I'll get it and the shipping charges are spread across several DVD's, so I hardly feel it.
