Well overnight is more rushed so it's more expensive due to shipping charges. Two days they can more take there time so it don't cost as much.

Yeah, overnight is rushed to get shipped quicker..

it works out better sometimes using overnight - as it suits them more, its also to do with availibaility and easyness for them, they may have a shipment headin in that direction, and wouldnt cost them anything to stick a small package on thr back of a lorry - so they are actually winning!

Yeah, thats probably it! I'd never think of that... Maybe FedEx uses that as some sort of 'cool talk' for their shipping methods, altough it is confusing. Otherwise, it could be a mistake by the computer...
