How is your post office doing? charging you correct postage?
In still another attempt at solving the problems with post office clerks charging incorrect prices for bubble envelopes, here is a new thread to try and determine if members are still having problems with the correct postage charges for mailing and receiving bubble envelopes.
Please post here with any info good or bad. Correct prices or incorrect prices, getting clerks to charge the correct price or not.
Please include your location in your post indicating what state you are in and city or town.
If you are reluctant to post your city or town on line, would you please email me through my member page to let me know what city/town you are from and having problems with.
The more info you can provide me, the more info I can then work with, with the post office to try and get this problem finally solved.
Thanks in advance
Here is the chart with the correct info for charges
Bubble envelopes which are empty, or under 3/4" thick are classified as and to be charged as Large Envelopes and referred to as Flats) The contents (seed packs) should be taped in place, so the BE will be uniformly thick, and that the seeds don't shift, and then cause problems with the USPS equipment.

Up to 1 oz=$ .88
Up to 2 OZ=$1.05
Up to 3 OZ=$1.22
Up to 4 OZ=$1.39
Up to 5 OZ=$1.56
Other rates up to 13 OZ can be found at the link below. Anything over 13 OZ will then go as Priority mail (1 LB) and will be $4.80 unless one tells the clerks it is to go Parcel Post.
If there are numerous generous amounts of seeds sent, or if the seeds are bigger, the BE may be more than 3/4" thick, and then will go at Parcel Rate. It is not necessary to tape packets down if it is a bigger bulky envelope over 3/4" thick.
