I just placed a preorder with DVD Empire and noticed there was now a "Media Mail" option for shipping. Media Mail is now the name for what has been known for many years as "book rate". For one DVD,the shipping charge is $1.30. Delivery time is listed as 3-7 days as opposed to 2-4 days for Priority Mail. I'll give it a try and see how it goes. I'm only one state away from their mailing site, so I'm hoping delivery time will be good.
