USPS Shipping Rate Increase – January 17, 2016

Posted by on Jan 25, 2016 in News | 0 comments

Hi, recently we here at AA Savory Scent, just found out that the USPS shipping rates have increased an average of 9.5%. We were unaware of this until we shipped out orders on January 16th and noticed a price hike when we shipped similar orders on January 19th.  Here we utilize Flat Rate priority 2 day delivery. To us it is a fast and secure method of getting our consumers their orders as quickly as possible and if there are problems we can track, refund and resend an order with no issues.  We will be sticking with this service but we will be forced to increase our shipping rate to match the current rate. We have also removed some of our larger inventory items from the website due to the fact that they would cost the consumer to much to ship now.   Those items will still be available for local pickups as usual.

Our two primary shipping containers will now be the following.

Priority Mail® Small Flat Rate Box 5-3/8″ x 8-5/8″ x 1-5/8 // 2-Day Delivery $6.80

Priority Mail® Padded Flat Rate Envelope 9-1/2″ x 12-1/2″ // 2-Day Delivery$6.80


We understand the increase is unfortunate but this was something that was out of our hands and we wanted to add the chart below to show you the increases we spoke about.  Even though the price has increased we wanted to show you the shipping scale that Yankee Candle uses compared to what we use.
