Here in Canada you can go to the drug store and send out mail at the postal outlet. I don't know if you have them down there, but if you do I suggest them. The workers are paid by the store instead of the USPS, so they don't try to dupe you into spending more. I have gone to both the PO and the outlet, and have always found that the workers at the outlets will check to see if there is a lower price. At the PO you have to almost fight with the worker to get different rates.
With that being said... I would hate to lose out on continuing trading with the brilliant members south-of-the-border, so I am offering a $5.00 BV slide to my trading partners in the States. I get $20 in total trade value, you get $25 in total trade value. I hope that this will deter some of you guys from NOT trading with me... Hehe! Best wishes, Beckett Community!

Anybody hear of such a thing?

SHOPPERS DRUG MART OUTLET MUCH CHEAPER THAN CANADA POST. AND THE ENVELOPES ALWAYS SEAM TO FIT THROUGH THE LETTER MAIL GUIDE SLOT MUCH EASIER. JUST A QUESTION FOR MY AMERICAN FRIENDS. IF YOU PUT A SINGLE CARD IN A TOPLOADER AND PLACED IT IN A GREETING CARD AND REGULAR ENVELOPE, WOULD IT STILL COST $7.00? I WOULD ASSUME THAT THE CARD WOULD STILL BE WELL ENOUGH PROTECTED....JUST A THOUGHT.......

There is obviously a way to do it cheaper, but my guess is you would really have to go over the USPS rules and rates to find it.
