Some places are PICKY on what is considered "media". My buddy got hassled at his P.O. for trying to ship a service manual for a car -- the guy at the post office insisted that was NOT considered "media". I say bullshit - if it's got words on paper, it's MEDIA.

To send something via media mail the material sent must be educational media. It can not contain advertising, video games, computer drives, or digital drives of any kind.
Anyway PARCEL POST is being replaced by a new service called Parcel Select®. Most likely just a new name. Same service.
