So has anyone else taken the time to check out the new “lower” pricing that USPS rolled out today? From what I can see so far they seem to have gone up on ALL of their shipping cost.
Here are a few examples of what we paid last week and how much it will cost to ship the same thing this week.
- Regional A, Priority Mail last week was $5.32 for a 13 pound package to a customer in our state. This week the same thing will cost me $6.07.
- 5lb Priority Mail cost me $8.42 last week, this week it will cost me $11.30 going to the exact same address.
- A 7lb package, shipping Priority Mail cost me $7.27 last week. Now with the new “lower” scammed prices from the US Government I only have to pay $10.20 to the exact same address.
That's just the basic Priority Mail crap above. So far EVERY package we have checked has gone WAY UP!
- Flat Rate packages? The basic Flat Rate Priority Mail Envelope went from $5.05 last week to $5.75 this week. The Flat Rate Padded Envelope went from $5.70 last week to $6.10 this week.
Oh wait, the US Government is not done with their lame lies yet! Even the 1st Class Mail has GONE UP!! We paid $2.09 for a basic 5oz package last week. This week that same package will cost $2.68.
So far it doesn't make any difference how you ship stuff. If you use USPS they have jacked the prices up instead of “lowering” them like they claimed. From the smaller things to the “heavier” that they were boasting about.
