HeyMike

My wife sent a balikbayan box to Cebu City from New Jersey on October 15, 2020 using Will Xpress. We use Will Xpress for sending boxes because they have no weight limit. It's a flat $80 per box. I will post here again when the box arrives at its destination in Cebu City.

You're comparing apples and oranges. 

If you need a replacement credit/debit card or important documents, you need your shipment in a hurry, typically within no more than a few days. So FedEx international priority service is the way to go - you should get it in usually about 4 days. You pay more for the fast delivery.

Whereas a FedEx envelope travels via air from the USA to the Philippines, a balikbayan box is a completely different animal. It will be transported via ocean cargo ship, and could take a couple months or more to reach its destination. So it's intended for items that aren't needed in a hurry. 

Check out DHL, when my credit card expired, master card thru citibank in the usa they sent me a card asap free of charge by DHL and had it in 6 days delivered to my residence.

Credit card issuers that ship cards at their own expense will virtually always use the company they choose, you won't get a choice.

For shipping documents, in my personal experience FedEx is fast and reliable. I've had shipments that were delivered in less than 3.5 days.

I live only about 10 minutes from a full-service FedEx shipping store, DHL offers nothing of the sort in my area.

Also, for security and legal reasons, I prefer using US-owned FedEx, rather than German-owned DHL.

Different strokes for different folks. I'm not criticizing anyone else's choice. Use whatever company that floats your boat.

Reading the various posts, it seems the saying "Experiences May Vary" pretty much fits for shipping things in and out of the Philippines...
