Using a Postage Meter Now Earns You a Discount from the USPS (Video)

by Janet Granger | January 21, 2014 | No Comments

Many mailers and small businesses are aware that postage meters can help their business be more efficient because:

  1. It’s more convenient than going to the post office
  2. It saves valuable time
  3. It allows you to track the money spent on mailing and shipping – right from your office.

And now, as of January 26th , the postal service will give you a discounted rate on your mailing just because you use a postage meter!

Our newest video, Postal Meters-USPS Rate Changes, discusses how U.S. businesses using postage meters will benefit from a first-ever postal rate discount of 1 cent on First-Class® Mail in 2014.*  Every cent counts for mailers, and especially small business owners, and this new benefit to using a meter can add up to some serious savings over time.

Never before has the price of a stamp and the price of metered mail been different!  So, on top of the convenience and time savings, you have the actual cost savings as a key benefit to metered mail.

We estimate that Pitney Bowes customers in North America will save at least $50 million this year with these discounts.  That’s a significant savings.

When you look at it,  postage by meter costs less than a stamp, so why pay more?

How much will you be able to save using this discount?

And what could it mean for your organization?
