I need to ship 5 games across the country (from South Carolina to California) and they weigh a total of 18 pounds.
Does anyone know what the cheapest method is?
I tried doing it by weight with USPS and it came out to $53!

Heavier packages are usually better shipped UPS/FedEx than USPS (that is, if the contents are too large for a flat-rate USPS box).

I haven't tried this site out yet but saw it in an article, it compares shipping prices across many shippers so you don't have to manually calculate a price at each company's website:

What kind address info do you need to input into this site? I tried a few and it keep saying "this is not a valid shipping address". This is after auto populating from their own dropdown list too
