USPS Military Pack - Free Packing Materials!

The USPS has a program for military family members and friends to supply them with packaging materials to send packages to troops overseas, Sailors on ships, etc.

Call 1-800-610-8734 and select option #1, then #1 again. Ask them for the "Military pack." They will send you 6 to 8 boxes, tape, packaging materials and labels. They will also give you an I.D. number so if your supply runs low, you just call them up and they'll send you more supplies.

The materials take about four to ten days to receive. Since most places charge you for the box, tape, filler, labels and everything else - this should help save some money.

For more information on mailing items to Service Members, visit the USPS FAQ page.

That's awesome! I just ordered mine. I knew they had flat rate boxes they would send for free but didn't know they'd also send all the forms, tape, labels and stuff. Thanks for the info!

Sara,
The USPS has updated this package slightly since the time of your post and now calls it the "the Military CAREKIT". I am citing the USPS web-page at the link below, as accessed on August 30, 2011. Hope this is helpful to all!
