DVR died. I don't want to pay $20 for shipping. What to do?

I bought an HR24-500 and still had to pay $20 for the Access Card which was no big deal since I didn't want any billing charges related to the previous Owner's Access Card Bills.
DIRECTV CUSTOMER SINCE 1997
Here's My Setup

That possibly doesn't cover the actual cost of the freight.
If I remember correctly they use FedX 2 day delivery.
I just sent my mother a prepaid grocery store card. It was $7.50 for 3 day delivery.
DirecTV has a volume discount with FedEx. I know the discounts we get for $500,000 a week in volume and I suspect DirecTV has a higher weekly volume than that.
What you pay retail is nowhere close to what volume shippers pay.
I can ship an overnight letter via FedEx or UPS cheaper than one can send a USPS priority flat rate envelope without tracking and god knows when delivery.
