it should be 1.13, but some post offices/mail clerks do not charge you the parcel rate (bubble mailers recently became a parcel)... so if you get a different rate it is because the clerk was being a...

That is a good point Molly, not to mention if you take it to the post office and they don't charge you the parcel rate, once it gets to the PO where the other person lives, they might slap you with...

with PWE's, I've never been charged more than $0.58....wait, maybe one time it was $0.75....cant remember for sure, but that's odd that it was $1.30

Hey garnett 21 I found it odd also,even if it was the parcel rate it shouldn't have been that much.when she asked what was in the envelope i told her cards in plastic holders maybe i should have said a birthday card or someting,who knows nowadays with the post office they change rates so many times i don't think they even know the prices take care Steve

Steve - just say 'Cards'....your not lying, and they'll think 'b-day cards' and charge $0.58 hopefully! just make it a little thicker so if they know the size of sports cards, they cant tell as...

It's $1.13 minimum for a First Class Parcel (1oz). A 2oz First Class Parcel is $1.30. PWEs go through a mail sorter and get bent. Anything too rigid for the mail sorting machine should be charged the...

i think .58 is the &quot;non-machine&quot; rate, does that mean it does not go through the machine? that was how i understood it.. i too have been charged $1.30 for a PWE, but not for just one card. I think...

Molly - that's my understanding too...cuz it's too thick....but they also charge $0.58 for 2 oz....so, I guess that would be too thick as well <br />
<br />
that little slot they put the envelopes thru is the...

I send one card in a bubble mailer for the price of one stamp and the cost of the mailer which I reuse alot of those. I've never had a problem.
