Default USPS Savings Program

Is it safe to join the new USPS Savings Program? When I went to click on the banner it asked if I wanted to share my registration info with USPS. So I declined it. Is it safe join this program with a stealth account?

Yeah because I when I do package pick up via the USPS site, I dont want them to show ebay my real address. I was hoping someone already tried this.

Of course I would not do a "log in" for package pickup if I did sign up for it.

Its a lot of savings from what I saw.

I do NOT Think that you will Save any Money with USPS'

Through Ebay and Paypal Shipping you are already Paying what is known as USPS "Strip Rate" The "Retail" rate whis is what People Pay at the Post office is where the Ad says that you can save Up To 32%. I think that IS the USPS Strip rate,,,so I do not think that you save any money on USPS, If you do is is very LITTLE. By Enrolling I think that you save with UPS and Other Carriers,,,I May be Wrong though

I might go check it out again. From what I saw the rates are still a good deal under what the online price was. Like I said though I want to re check. I may be wrong.

I remember that you do save most compared to counter prices but still 10-15% under the online prices. Atleast for wht I use for packaging.

Hi! Do somebody know how to transfer Paypal address to USPS to print shipping label? It is works perfect on eBay but not for the cheapest shipping option.

I save 33% with program. Its huge especially on International, Express and larger boxes.
If a package was to cost me $39 Overnight it is now $26. Plus I still charge customers the same $39. Pretty much $13 on one item just for joining. This is just a sample. Imagine savings over 500 packages a month... HUGE~

I avoided it, although I did not want to initially. My thinking was I would save a couple hundred or thousand a year, but potentially add one more reason for linking or other issues.

It's a good thing for you big ballers. For us the little people we just go with whatever were given.
