Flat Rate Box

Regardless of weight, anything mailed in the Flat Rate Box is a postage of $8.10, right?  Or has that price gone up?

Re: Flat Rate Box

Small flat rate box is $9.80

Large flat rate box is $12.95

Large APO/FPO flat rate box is $10.95

 

(I hope that is correct.)

 

 

It seems to me that the weight restriction is 70 lbs.  But I could be wrong on that.

Re: Flat Rate Box

Thanks Squeek for responding to the flat-rate box price question!  You're correct... those are the new May 2008 retail prices for the Priority Mail flat-rate boxes and the weight limitation is 70#.

Re: Flat Rate Box

Hi Kase!

 

Yeah, we get a little crazy with our acronyms!  Sorry!

 

APO stands for army post office.  It is a branch of a designated USPS® civilian post office, which falls under the jurisdiction of the postmaster of either New York City or San Francisco, that serves either Army or Air Force personnel.

 

FPO stands for fleet post office and it is a branch of a designated USPS® civilian post office, which falls under the jurisdiction of the postmaster of either New York City or San Francisco, that serves Coast Guard, Navy, or Marine Corps personnel.

 

Have a great day!
