Holiday Gift Items Available at Post Offices

Florida's website reports, "For the first time, the U.S. Postal Service is selling the holiday "Let It Snow" CD and "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" DVD in 5,000 selected Post Offices across the country. They will be offered at a discount if a customer purchases Priority Mail at the same time as the CD or DVD."

Debra Mitchell of the U.S. Postal Service writes, "Postal customers purchasing one of the CDs or DVDs will be given a $2.00 discount if the item is sent via a small Flat Rate Priority Mail box. When purchasing the CD or DVD, the shipping carton is intentionally left open so the customer can put in a greeting card or other personal note."

According to the article, "The holiday "Let It Snow" CD is an exclusive collection of 11 holiday music classics from very well-known artists. Packaging for the CD is in a decorative snowflake box. The CD regularly sells for $12.99. With Priority Mail Flat rate postage the CD sells for $10.99."

The holiday "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" DVD is the classic holiday TV cartoon special of the reindeer who saved Christmas. The DVD regularly sells for $14.99. With Priority Mail Flat Rate postage, the DVD sells for $12.99.

Also available is an Evergreens greeting card set.

The note card set features artwork from the 44-cent Evergreens Forever stamps (shown above), depicting the foliage and cones of four different conifers: ponderosa pine, eastern red cedar, blue spruce and balsam fir.

Each note card set costs $11.95 and includes eight custom-designed envelopes and Evergreens Forever stamps. There are two note cards for each stamp design, with descriptive text about the featured evergreen printed on the back of each card. The inside of each card is blank.
