    Return to sender

    Advertisements
    I shipped a care package last week but I found out today that our fro gave us the wrong mailing address.

    Does anyone know when a package is returned to sender if I would have to pay another $18 to mail it again?

    This happened to me once when I used to sell on ebay; the buyer gave me the wrong address and I got it back and have to send it to a different place.

    What I was told at the post office was that postage can't be re-used, so assuming the postage on your care package got cancelled when it was shipped, new postage has to be purchased. That sucks they gave out the wrong address.

    You'll have to pay postage again.

    Thanks, ladies. I figured as much.

    Depending on HOW BAD that address was messed up it might come back. I have seen where it might be a little off or something and still magically shows up to the service member.

    The official message we got was they gave us the address for the squadron that they are replacing. When that squadron leaves the address expires and everything will get sent back.

    It's frustrating but... c'est la vie.
