Day 31 - $7.70 Flat Rate Postage and Best Rate Calling Cards
Today's mailing tip from Wayne's sister, Nikki:
Priority mail flat rate boxes are now available through the US Postal Service. You can cram up to 70 pounds of stuff into them for only $7.70. As long as you are mailing more than a pound, it is much more economical to use the flat rate box. You can order the free boxes at www.usps.com.
You will have to fill out a customs report. Do not list tobacco, alcohol, or porn on the list. Also, I would recommend leaving off anything of value. Food, candy, books. etc., OK.
Military calling cards are available online for $39.95 (550 units). These ATT Global Calling cards were negotiated with the military at a bulk contract rate. Added value includes being able to replenish minutes by phone with debit or credit card.
Stacy Lee recommended purchasing calling cards cards from Segovia, a satellite communications company. Cards purchased through the Segovia website are calculated at only $.04 a minute. These cards also carry the option to be replenished automatically when the balance falls below $5.00.
