This summer, Standard Mail went on sale for some of our largest customers. And early indicators is that it brought in some good revenue.

Brace yourself. This fall, First-Class Mail will go on sale.

The First-Class Mail Incentive will give eligible companies a 20 percent postage rebate on presorted letter, flat and card volumes that exceed a predetermined threshold. The incentive runs Oct. 1 through Dec. 31 this year.

Here's some of the details:

To be eligible for the incentive, a company must have mailed 500,000 or more non-parcel First-Class Mail presort pieces between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 in both 2007 and 2008.

I think this is a good idea...maybe we'll get back some of the volume we lost from our large (bank) mailers.
