Free shipping kit from USPS

submitted on June 5, 2009 by chinnam in "Member's Lounge"
It looks like USPS is giving away shipping boxes and tapes and accessories. So if you ship stuff a lot or just want store up some box you can order them for free and free shipping

    USPS has been giving free supplies for years. However they do not give out tape anymore. They stopped that a few years back.
    But if you get to know your postal employees and they see you ship a lot like me then you can ask for free priority tape at the counter and more than likely they'll give you a roll or two.

    FYI: You can only use these for Priority Mail and nothing else, as they come pre-marked for it. Unless of course you want to take the time to cover half the package in brown paper or something.

      They don't really work like that. To do so would require that you break one of the corners, and you would lose structural strength and stability, even after attempting to tape it back together. It would most likely be more trouble than its worth anyway, but for priority mail they are nice.

    Yes, it is an on-going deal. No - you can't use them for anything else
