Christmas Tip

While you’re rushing around this holiday season, take a moment to stop and appreciate someone you probably don’t see much—your letter carrier. Buy a box of chocolates, or a bottle of booze, or even a bit of cash, and slip it into the mailbox at Christmastime. They’ll love you for it. And you always want the mailman on your side.

    So if I stick a bottle of scotch in the mailbox for the mail carrier, will he or she have to pay the postage or do I?

    … sorry, just had to share this little known postage factoid.

    1.3Use for Mail

    Except under 2.11, the receptacles described in 1.1 may be used only for matter bearing postage. Other than as permitted by 2.10 or 2.11, no part of a mail receptacle may be used to deliver any matter not bearing postage, including items or matter placed upon, supported by, attached to, hung from, or inserted into a mail receptacle. Any mailable matter not bearing postage and found as described above is subject to the same postage as would be paid if it were carried by mail.
