Save on shipping with this trick for small heavy items FBA

20150224_110130

This is a trick I stumbled on today, and it saves about $1 in postage for a 1 pound 2 ounce box shipping with the U.S. Post Office.  I boxed up the item in a 9x6x3-inch box, and the postage would have been $6.97 if I sent it parcel select.  At this weight Priority Mail is less expensive, so I thought I’d try fitting the box in the Priority Mail padded envelope and… it fit!  Very snugly, but it fit.  This will ship for $5.70 and faster too.  Hope this helps you.
