Better prices beat ad campaigns

Share this article:

I read the article (" 'Whiteboard' shows what Brown can do," Jan. 15 DM News) about UPS spending another $35 million on advertising. We switched our shipping from UPS to FedEx about eight years ago because a FedEx rep called and offered a 20 percent discount off the published rates. We had been a loyal customer of UPS for more than 15 years. We are now a loyal customer of FedEx.

UPS can "What Can Brown Do for You" and "Whiteboard" from now until Super Bowl No. 422. I need affordable shipping, not ads.
