Customer Question:

The USPS is offering a 2% discount through the 2017 Tactile, Sensory & Interactive (TSI) Mailpiece Engagement Promotion. My company already earns a presort discount on our mailings. If we have a mailpiece that meets specifications and qualifies for the TSI promotion, are we eligible for a 2% discount in addition to our presort discount?

Answer:

The USPS offers workshare discounts, which is a postage discount provided to mailers who presort, pre-barcode, handle, or transport their mail (e.g. all activities the USPS would otherwise have to perform). Workshare discounts are different from discounts made available through the USPS 2017 Promotions & Incentives. In this case, the 2% discount offered through the Tactile, Sensory & Interactive Mailpiece Engagement Promotion is available to mailers who may already receive a workshare discount, provided promotion specifications are met*.
