The USPS is offering a 2% postage discount to presorted standard, nonprofit and presorted first class mail between March 1, 2013 and April 30, 2013. To be eligible for the discount there are two options.

Option 1: Mobile Coupon

  1. The mail piece must be a coupon that is redeemable in store.
  2. The discount is only offered to the mail piece recipient not general public and is a discount of the price of a product or service.
