Reply Rides Free Up to Two Ounces

On Friday, July 29, 2011, we initiated a filing with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) about the Reply Rides Free Program, requesting that the weight requirement to receive credit for qualifying First-Class Mail® letters weighing more than 1 ounce be raised from “no more than 1.2 ounces” to “no more than 2 ounces.”

After PRC review, we plan on making this change available to customers beginning September 1, 2011, and the change will be incorporated into the September 6, 2011, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM®).

For additional information, see the PRC filing.
