USPS Dumps Tech Credit

From the DMM Advisory:

Technical Credit Promotion Statement

The Postal Service had proposed the Technology Credit Promotion as a way to help mailers defray some of the initial costs associated with converting to full-service.

However, in light of the Postal Regulatory Commission’s June 10 decision regarding the price cap treatment of the Technology Credit Promotion, and the Postal Service’s present financial condition, we have determined not to proceed with the promotion.


Was  this was all about the money, and not about Full Service adoption?  The USPS said they would reap untold savings and benefits from early Full Service adoption, did those benefits all go away?

This was a classic bait and switch operation – presented as a “Credit”, and then filed as a “Promotion”.  This is not the PRCs fault, the USPS is trying to divert attention away from the real culprit in this failed endeavor.

It is a shame how much time, effort, energy, programming – and MONEY – was wasted here.  And you can’t put a price on the harm done to the mail owner community perception of the USPS.  Many customers counted on these chickens, well before they hatched.   And they will be wary about getting fooled again in the future – that is how they will look at this latest development.

  1. Dirty tactics! How DARE the Post Office make marketers actually pay for advertising! We’re only going to make billions this year now. Might even affect my six figure bonus. Sham.

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only one who sees the situation this way. I really don’t understand how they justify the shenanigans that they’ve been pulling on their “partners” for years.
