Money Saving USPO Mailing Info

Hey guys ..... want to send US Priority Mail packages MUCH CHEAPER ?

Here's how ........ Use US Postal Flat Rate Padded Envelopes ....and Regional Box A and B size boxes.

Have something that will Not fit the Small Flate Rate Priority Box  ?   [ $6.80 ]

Well ..... if it will fit in the Flat Rate Padded Envelope the price is $6.80 

[ same as the small flat rate box ! ]

FYI ..... a 4 Cell AK mag pouch with 4 mags ..... Almost 4 pounds .....WILL FIT in the Flat Rate Padded Envelope ......
Translation > you can mail the mag pouch with 4 AK mags for $6.80 .... [ instead of the Medium Flat Rate box $13.45 ]
You save $6.65 !

The Regional Rate boxes run about $4 to $6 cheaper than the Medium and Large Flat Rate Boxes.

A 3 pound Regional Box A runs about $10 to all 48 states .....  the Medium Flat rate box would run $13.45
The Regional Boxes are not Flat Rate ...... so .... for any real heavy items .... Flat Rate may be a better choice.

Go to the USPS website ......   USPS.com  >  Free Shipping Supplies
to order ......... Flat Rate Padded Envelopes  and Regional Boxes A & B
They will mail supplies to you for FREE ..... with a 4/5 day delivery to you .

Pass the savings on to you Customer !

Buddy's gone "POSTAL"...

Thanks for the Excellent information ... to lower the costs of shipping makes our private sales more competitive with the large volume companies....it really sucks when you think your getting a great deal, only to find out it's not so great when the shipping costs are finally added in....

Thank you Buddy. As long as I've used flat rate mailing, I was not aware of regional boxes nor the  flat rate padded envelopes.

Thanks!! I knew about the regional boxes but never thought to use a padded envelope.  

Does anyone know if there are any restriction on the width of the padded envelope?

From the Post Office commercials ..... " If it Fits .... It ships. "

do you mean thickness ?

I would not place sharp items inside the padded envelope.

I just mailed 5 Polish Tantal 5.45 Steel 30rd mags with an East German 4 cell mag pouch in a Padded Flat Rate Envelope .....the weight was 4 pounds 8 ounces > >  Cost was $6.80 !  !

remember ..... You have to order these padded envelopes from usps.com  .... They are FREE and ship FREE

they are not usually in stock at local post offices ...... ORDER NOW !
