Help Sign Trouble shipping coupons! Help!

...so I went to my post office the other day with coupons in tow for my AFC military families. My first shipment! So exciting!

However, I was told (much to my and the clerk's confusion) that my envelope could only be shipped express - which was over $20.

I can't afford to do that and it certainly isn't what I expected given the stuff I have been reading. What happened?

I tried shipping it in a bubble envelope. Would that be the problem? Would the holiday weekend affect shipping?

Thanks so much, guys. I want to get these things sent out!

Shipping to an APO address should be the same price as shipping to a domestic (US) address. I get an APO large flat rate box and mail them to a military spouse for 12.95 flat rate. It holds a lot. You could do a flat rate envelope for 4.95, I believe. It should not be $20 to ship an envelope.

Yes-the flat rate boxes and envelopes ar the way to go. The $12.95 price on the large flat is a special apo rate and is the best deal if you have that many qs to donate.

Yes, you have to use their envelopes or boxes to get the special rate, but I agree, either is a great value.. If you can't afford it (the postage) sometimes the local VFW or Veteran's HOspital has a group that sorts and sends coupons. Thank you for your generous heart!

Awesome. I'm so excited for tomorrow; I don't have to work so I'll be able to go first thing in the morning! I also have two care packages to go out. Thanks to couponing the contents, while worth much more, have cost me less than the shipping will!

Thank you all for your information and support. It means a lot to me. <3
