Be careful everyone! There using a plastic bag inside of opening.....If u don't look for...your placing it in the plastic bag and they come by later and pull it out with the letters going out!

I have been placing my stamps on the bubble envelopes and ......I just got back after 45 days.....with Blue label.....indicating any mailpiece over one-half inch thick that uses postage stamps must be presented by the customer to retail service associate at a post office location for shipment!......returned to u due to heighted security concerns!

Back in November I won a 2019 Topps Chrome Pete Alonso Pink Refractor on eBay for $10 BIN w/ free shipping. After a few weeks I messaged the seller and eventually was refunded my money no questions asked. Fast forward to this past weekend I get a PWE in the mail and lo and behold,it was said Pete Alonso card. I sent the seller an email telling him of what happened and returned the $10.80 he refunded me.

A lot of strange things going on.....PWE I'll continue to do them....but bubble envelopes will take them to the post office....don't want a repeat!!

A couple of things...
1. If you're used.to getting your mail at a certain time and one day a week, it comes later. Probably your mailman day off.
If it happens every day for a week or two...your mailman is On vacation
If it happens for about a month...you mailman bid to a new route or retired and it finally was bid on and you have a new mailman
But!! If it's suddenly totally screwed up and the mailman is running down the street muttering "Sorry, sorry," under his his breath...It means there was a route examination, my some moron in management,who's never carried mail a single day in his/her life an has no clue what "customer service" means!
The latest fun thing is...the Post Office (no longer the USPS, because there's no service anymore,) is hiring college graduates with BAs and putting them in implant support!

Hi David
As long as the package is under a 12 ounces, you can still use stamps...But, another reason to use Paypal shipping...you save 10%!

End joy the cost of postage going up...it pays for the overtime that I get, because management are idiots!
