  • I use them for my business and they are good. You can request a kit be mailed to you, but for the small ones you have to get them at the post office. Watch out, though, there are PM boxes that are NOT flat rate and it will cost you like crazy if the box is heavy. Since I sell a lot of books flat rate is the only way for me.

  • I use them whenever I send something because it's easier than finding my own box lol. It's probably more expensive than if I found my own box though. But around Christmas time I only get people stuff that will fit into the box lol. This year though I might just get my own box, because you can ship them priority without the priority boxes. Really I'll just have to see the price difference.

  • LOVE them! I've sold a few things on ebay and they are totally worth it!

  • They are the simplest way to go. Reasonably priced shipping, too.

  • Haven't lately, but when my brother was in Iraq I did all the time - I could load them up with anything (he loved receiving canned fruit, spaghettios, soup, etc) without spending extra. There ARE times that using your own box would be cheaper, but for the most part, the flat rate boxes are the way to go.
