Sources of Price Quotes and Discounts

This site compares retail and discount rates of USPS, FedEx and UPS

Discounts this site uses in its price quotes:

You can easily get discount rates for most carriers, even if you don't ship in large quantities. They generally require you to open up an account online, some charge a monthly fee to get a discount, but there are a few options that are free! (Well, you still have to pay for the postage, you just pay less!). See the shipping discounts guide for more tips. While you can guess weights and dimensions when you are trying to get rough shipping estimates, you'll need to be sure to use exact measurements when actually purchasing a shipping label. Invest in a scale and measuring tape so that you have the exact weight and dimensions of your package so that you can easily take advantage of buying your postage online at a discount. If you don't provide accurate measurements, your package will either be sent back to you, or you may end up getting charged a fine, so don't skip the step of providing proper dimensions and weights.
