Did you know that USPS, FedEx and UPS offer you free shipping supplies? Here’s how to get them.

It would be great if you can get something free from USPS, FedEx, and UPS. But you can! All of the three largest companies in the United States offer free shipping supplies. Below we will explain the freebies you can get and explain how you can get them today.

UPS

UPS is the best shipping provider to use if you use FBA. They, alongside Amazon, process a massive number of packages per day so they will charge you less to deliver a package to the Amazon center than to ship a package somewhere else. An interesting addition is the fact you can get free shipping supplies from UPS. 

To get the free shipping supplies, all you have to do is to go to their official website, create an account if you don’t have it already and pick an option you need. They are the best if you are an Amazon reseller as well. Anyway, you have 4 options to get for free.

Free labels: 
  • 320 – 4″ x 6″- This is a thermal label in a single roll. You will need it if you have a thermal printer such as Zebra TLP 2844 or the DYMO LabelWriter 4XL. Keep in mind that these roils won’t fit a printer, but you can place them on the backside and you will be able to get a job done. The best part is the fact you can print literally for free, due to the fact you don’t need labels nor ink.
  • 940 – 4″ x 6″- Here you can get the same type of thermal labels as in the first case scenario, but you get 940 rather than 320.
  • 50-2 label peel- You get these freebies that are used for printing Amazon tags and shipping labels. They can fit any laser printer.
Free pouches:
  • 50 – 6.5″ x 10″- The pouches are used if you print on standard sheets of paper and then cut them in half. The pouches can also fit a standard piece of paper. 

FedEx

There is no need to mention that FedEx is one of the largest shipping companies in the United States and probably in the world. They give freebies as well and now you can use what they have to offer. 

In order to get free shipping supplies, you will have to go to their online store. Create an account if you don’t have it already and log in using it. Anyway, they will give it to you for free.

Free labels:
  • 5.5″ x 8″- 200-2000 These labels are free and they are actually the same as the third option UPS has to offer. Don’t forget that these ones have a FedEx logo.
  • 5’’ thermal labels- 300-3000 This is the alternative as UPS offers. You can go back to the previous section to get more information.
Free pouches:
  • Thermal label pouches (international) 50-500 They are equivalent to the UPS offer of pouches we discussed above. However, there is one major difference here. You can order as many as needed, much more than UPS offers.


USPS

One of the main advantages USPS has over the first two brands are free boxes for the various shipping types. However, they do not offer free labels, which is a drawback. Anyway, the main advantage here is in the fact if you sell on eBay you will have use of the free boxes and other freebies they offer.

To get the free stuff from this company you will have to go to their official website, log in (create the account if you don’t have it) and then order the freebies. Below you can see what USPS has to offer you for free and you can order all of them if you like.

  • Boxes—All the boxes you will see at the official website are completely free and they come in all possible sizes. You can get a flat rate and standard priority boxes as well and they will be delivered to you.
  • Pouches—They are almost identical to the ones we mentioned above, with the first 2 brands. However, they are a bit bigger and they can be used for papers with 8.5″ x 11″ dimensions. 
  • Envelopes—Padded, standard priority and flat rate variations are available. It is an essential gift if you use a lot of envelopes for your business.

All of the freebies we have mentioned above are obviously free and they are essential if you want to save money and time and to increase your profit. If you are still interested in saving money and time, to a completely new level, you will have to try ShipSaving.
