Australia Post: Substantial discountsMay 13, 2009
It’s worth chatting to your postal service people — in my case, Australia Post.
I needed to buy a few tough bags for mailing stuff to clients, but there were only three on display. The retail price was $1.00 per bag, but the lady behind the Australia Post counter said that they had discounts if I needed a few. If I bought 10, then I paid $9.00 getting a 10% discount. But if I bought 100, I only paid $40, getting a whopping 60% off the retail price! And this is their standard pricing, not a sale special.
I bought 100, which should last me quite a while, but hey — they’re not going to ‘go off’.
BTW, I checked the Australia Post website for this discount but all I could see was the generic ‘Discounts for bulk purchases available on application.’
So it’s well worth asking.
