USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes: Your College students care Package

Sept. 15, 2010

Greenfield, WI— Parents who wish to send packages of essential items to sons and daughters they recently shipped off to college after paying cold, hard cash for tuition, books and housing can save some extra money by looking no further than their local Post Office

 

“When shipping packages to college students on campus, Flat Rate Boxes from the Postal Service offer great value and convenience,” says Greenfield Manager Julie Joers. “Everything you need for a student care package will fit into one of four different sized boxes and will ship for one flat price no matter the weight or destination.

 

Home-baked goods and other snack foods, school supplies, gift cards, music CDs and even travel tickets to visit home make the perfect Back to School in a Box package for students.” Joers adds that Priority Mail flat-rate packages arrive on average in two or three days. Saturday and residential delivery is included at no extra cost.

 

There’s a display in the lobby of the Greenfield Post Office stocked with Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes. Available in four sizes, parents can use to ship home-baked goods and other snacks, school supplies, gift cards, music CDs and even travel tickets to visit home and other essential campus-life items to a campus mailroom, dorm mailroom, on or off-campus apartment for a low flat rate!

 

The Greenfield Post Office has an Automated Postal Center in the lobby, a self-service kiosk that works much like an ATM machine at a bank. Joers says to ship Priority Mail Flat Rate Boxes just follow the prompts on the machine and pay with a credit or debit card. Chances are they won’t even have to wait in line.

 

Parents can even skip the trip to the Post Office altogether by going online to www.usps.com. Here they can order free, eco-friendly flat rate boxes and have them delivered right to their home or business. They can even print shipping labels and pay for postage with Click-N-Ship service. They’ll receive a discount for printing postage online, along with free Delivery Confirmation service. Plus they can schedule free package pickup — right from their computer.

 

Prices and measurements are listed below. Customers who order Priority Mail flat-rate shipping online at www.usps.com receive a discount.
