USPS Strikes Again

Company: USPS Strikes Again

Category: Other

I just went to the Post Office (contract outlet) to purchase some postal

stamps. When I made my selections and started to pull out my debit

card, I was politely told that USPS will not accept any more

Debit/Credit cards! It was explained to me that the Post Office does

not want to pay the fee that the credit card companies charge for retail

use of the Debit/Credit card. This became effective about a week ago -

and I haven't seen anything in the press regarding this. Needless to

say, I walked out of the store without making my purchase since I carry

neither cash or checks.

So now we are required to pay for stamps with checks or cash! I will be

doing more bill paying via the bank (until they start charging for this

service).

Is there anything that the USPS wont stoop to get more $? And, on May

12 the first class rate (among other rate increases) goes to .42 for a

letter/card, etc. I think the USPS has really gone too far this time.

While I agree the postal service is money hungry, one of your own comments make you sound like a penny pincher.."I will be doing more bill paying via the bank (until they start charging for this service)"
