Share this article:

The United States Postal Service has issued further specifics on its proposed “summer sale.

The sale will run from July 1 through September 30 and will be open to mailers who mailed more than one million Standard letters and/or flats from October 1, 2007, through March 31, 2008.

The USPS said eligible mailers will receive a rebate of 30% on any mail volume in the summer sale period, which is over the past threshold.

The rebates will be adjusted if the mailer's October 2009 volume is less than their October 2008 mail volume adjusted their mailing trend.

Mailers will pay full postage during the summer, and their rebates will be determined by the USPS after October 31. Rebates will be credited to the mailer's permit account before December 31. 

The USPS will be sending eligible mailers letters that will provide the threshold as determined by USPS data systems.

Once they receive their eligibility letter, mailers may enroll in the program on the Web on or before July 1.

The summer sale proposal must still be approved by the USPS board of governors and the Postal Regulatory Commission.
