You Don’t Even Have to Leave the House
You don’t have to leave the house to get stamps, envelopes, boxes, place a hold on your mail, apply for a passport, or change your address. All those things, and more, can be done just as efficiently at USPS.com
Even more surprising, you can opt for free flat-rate envelopes and boxes delivered to your home!
Media Mail Is a Bargain
Sending a Large Flat Rate Box from the Big Apple to San Francisco costs $19.95, but why pay so much when you can opt for the much more affordable Media Mail, which costs as little as $7.43!
Use it to send books, manuscripts, CDs, and DVDs! As long as you don’t add anything else in the package, you’re good to go.
They Don’t Get a Penny of Your Tax Dollars
Surprising? You bet! Not a lot of people know that the U.S. Postal Service doesn’t rely on tax dollars at all.
In fact, they rely on service fees and stamp sales. So, if you want to help them out, you could start your very own stamp collection!
They Won’t Charge You for Mistakes
UPS and FedEx will charge you $10 if not more if you mess up an address. The simple solution to this problem is to rely on the U.S. Postal Service, which won’t charge you a single cent.
