A Little Shipping Mistake Almost Cost Me 25%

Have you ever found yourself in this situation?

It is Saturday and you realize that you absolutely need to get an envelope delivered by Monday. Where do you go and how much will it cost?

Fortunately, there are multiple choices, UPS, FedEx or the US Post Office.

For me, the least expensive choice was sending it Express Mail with the US Post Office.

But, I almost made a little mistake. I grabbed a Flat Rate Envelope which would have cost me $3.90 more than a regular Express Mail Envelope.

Here are today’s Taylor’s Tips:

  1. Compare the price of the Express Mail Flat Rate Envelope to regular Express Mail. In my case, it was 25% less.
  2. Print your label online. I saved 3% compared to paying for it at the post office.
