    Free shipping supplies

    Advertisements
    I'm not sure if anyone has ever posted something like this before. Some of you may be aware of this but if you're not, you can get free boxes, tape, custom forms, etc. from USPS. The boxes are flat rate so you only pay the flat rate shipping fee when you send them to your SO.

    Call 18006108734

    Choose the language

    Press 1 for the operator.

    Order the Military Care Kit.

    They usually ship them out to you the next day and you get them in 7-10 business days. I don't remember what all comes with and the boxes arent HUGE but they're a decent size and hey they're free haha. If you call they can give you better details. Just ordered 2 more sets today and figured I would share that information with you guys just in case you didn't know about it Anyone can use it not just SOs. You just have to say you know someone in the military, their parents or whoever can order too. So pass the info along, I didn't even think to tell you guys until I was ordering more today sorry .

    If people are looking for boxes and already have order forms (I grab a stack when at the post office) you an just order them online as well. Cost nothing to ship. Your postman will drop them off at your door stop. And of course you guys can always get the flat rate boxes at your post office I believe the ones online come in packs of 10??? I can't remember there is a small set and a large set.

    If you go to the PO, though, wouldn't you have to pay for the box?
