Well the competition is UPS and FedEx, neither of which is reasonable in price. Still no reason for the Postal Service to double their rates.
I was wondering what she was doing typing so much. That explains why USPS won't let them accept hand written ones at the contracted one, they have a computer that you can do one online for an extra dollar. So maybe there is a way to do it online, but then you have to have a scale to enter the weight and all that. So they trying to keep tabs on who ships what where and who it goes to? Rather fishy if you ask me, and totally no logic in the "it is better now" as it costs more/takes more time/and still no tracking even though online makes it sound like it. What a joke.
You can do it online if you have a account with the PO, with the Custom Forms, just need to have a Form on hand for the Number to type in on the web site, this way they will just weight it and scan it, still cost a arm and leg and a couple of fingers
$49 bucks to mail Feb. Hockey Box Break packages today, just unreal!
My days of trading have hit a end with these cost, sure the Box Break rates will go up also, which I will not do if hits $30 a slot!
Will see on that, mainly cause I love the Breaks!
With that, from 2008 to 2013, I have some awsome cards, more than I ever had, I have almost every awsome Red Wings RC that you could ever get, GU and almost every Red Wings Player AU! Think I will take a break form it all, but not leave the hobby, I'm having some cards Graded at SCF, and think I will just be grading my cards as far as spending goes, but wont be collecting anymore, just for now anyways
