Effective August 29, 2021, the United States Postal Service is implementing a mid-year postage update as part of its “Delivering for America” campaign, a 10-year plan to achieve financial sustainability and service excellence. 

With these postage changes, Bank-A-Count is excited to continue passing the discounted rates we receive as a commercial mailer on to you!  The 3rd ounce free program will continue through 2021, which means any mail piece weighing 3.5 ounces or less will be mailed at the 1 oz rate.

In addition to the discounted presort rates and utilizing the 3rd ounce free program, Bank-A-Count will continue to offer shipping at base cost with no extra handling fees.  We strive to pass on these savings to our customers.

Please review the below chart, which details the breakdown of the postage discounts you will receive by using Bank-A-Count for your print & mail:
