Recently, I have had two instances of customers who previously had been paying first class postage when it could have been mailed Standard A, at a great savings on postage. Both customers thought that the USPS required them to mail first class when in fact it wasn’t necessary. If we think that the content of a customer’s would qualify for a lower rate, we take it to our bulk mail unit and get a ruling on whether it can go at a lower rate. In both instances, the customer’s mail was approved to mail at a lower rate and this has saved them hundreds of dollars. There are lots of things that require being mailed first class but it is worth checking out for the added savings. Better yet, bring it to me and we will check it out for you.
