Stamps.com has a deal for people who hate going to the post office.
The internet-based mailing and shipping service typically costs $15.99 a month, but new users can try out Stamps.com without spending a dime. The company is offering a complimentary four-week trial and $5 in free postage to new users.
Here’s how the free Stamps.com trial works:
- You sign up for a Stamps.com account.
- Use your free $5 in postage during your trial period.
- If you decide the service is not for you, you can cancel Stamps.com online or by calling 855-608-2677.
- If you opt to continue with Stamps.com after the free trial is over, you will be charged $15.99 a month for the service, including a $15.99 charge for the first month. Paid Stamps.com members will also receive two free $10 postage coupons. You can redeem one coupon per month.
Other perks of the Stamps.com offer include a supplies kit worth $5 that includes address/postage labels and a user manual, as well as a free 5-pound digital scale. You have to pay shipping and handling for the latter. Learn more at the Stamps.com website.
On Jan. 22, a series of postal price increases took effect at the U.S. Postal Service. So, every bit of savings helps.
