Free Shipping on 5 cards - Order more and save
Hi everyone, Now here is something interesting: you can save money on mailing if you order 5 cards or 10 cards at a time.
For example, If you want one card mailed to you (in a protective envelope), the US mailing cost is US$0.98 in postage.
Order 5 cards to be delivered to the same address in the US or Canada and shipping is free! Hooray! Free shipping on 5 cards! (Please just do this once a month or I will go broke. If you need 10 cards, the shipping costs are quite reasonable and you will have all you need this year!)
If you order 10 cards in one protective envelope, to be delivered to a US address, it becomes a parcel and the mailing costs will be US$3.35 within the US (for the entire 10 card package).
Why is this? I don't know. The ways of the Postmaster are inscrutable.
If you order 10 cards in one protective envelope, to be delivered to a Canadian address, the cost will be US$3.60 (for the entire 10 card package).
Why is this? I still don't know.
But I do know that mailing parcels through the USPS takes more time, especially when mailing to Canada.
So, right now -- Today! Order the cards that you just know you will need next year -- (why not include at least one unusual one that just might come in handy). Order 5 cards and the shipping is free. Order 10 cards for delivery to your home and pay reasonable mailing costs. Either way you will have a card ready when life's inevitable events and tricky situations roll around.
If you live in the US, you can even save more money on shipping larger orders. I can fit 20 cards in a small flat rate box for US $7.15. Improve your social relationships so nicely this year by using greeting cards more often!
