At the end of February, the United States Postal Service announced that the exigent rate case that was passed in 2014 has expired. What that means is that postage rates will decrease approximately 4% for first class rate category mailings beginning in April. The USPS is referring to this savings as 2016 Spring Rollback Pricing.
This may not seem like a big deal when thinking about each mailing individually. It amounts to an average of around half a cent per mailing. However, if you’re sending thousands of pieces of postage every year, that savings can really add up.
The Spring Rollback Pricing should be on your radar.
If your mailing vendor or service hasn’t told you about this change, they’re not helping you find cost savings in your postage and mailing. This could be a significant yearly cost savings that you could apply to another strategic project instead of postage.
