Express Mail Costs to U.S. and options?

Hi, I need to get some business letters delivered to various places in the United States by the end of the week, and I was wondering if anyone has used DHL or Fed Ex and can give me an ideal on their ballpark prices.

The postoffice will be 76 CHF (For a letter, which seems shocking to me) and the earliest they can guarantee is Friday.

Can someone help with ballpark in for for DHL and Fed Ex? Envelope, less than 10 pages inside.

Thanks!

This might come as a shocker, but have you considered looking on the FedEx and DHL websites?

Re: Express Mail Costs to U.S. and options?

Honestly, I hadn't tried Fed Ex, because the descriptions I read in my extensive googling seemed to be well over 100chf for the timeframes I need.

DHL rates seem to vary a bunch, and I've never used them before, so in that case, I was hoping to hear if anyone had some recent experiences with them.
Edited to Add for people in the future, that it looks like DHL to the states starts at 90CHF these days.

Of course I googled, I asked here in case someone had some helpful information, or confirmation that I'm screwed. I kind of thought that was the point of this bulletin board. I forgot that it's real purpose was to be rude to people seeking help. You know that if you didn't waste time snarking at me, my question wouldn't have wasted your time, don't you?

I also ran at least 15 keyword searches here, so thanks for that suggestion in advance.

Thanks for reminding me why I avoid this place like the plague. My problem's been solved. Mods feel free to delete this if my desire for personal experiences is unnecessary clutter to the board.

Have a nice day everyone!

Re: Express Mail Costs to U.S. and options?

Have to admit that I'm a bit shocked that all I've ever done on this forum was help people and post a few pictures, but the first time I ask a question that someone deems stupid or juvenile I've earned negative reputation.

I hope you have an especially nice day, Village Idiot. It seems like you could use one.
