Contacted them via email for help accessing their web site. Wanted to buy some Forever stamps. Email response directed me to an 800 number for help accessing their web site. OK, the voice asked me to complete a survey before getting to my issue. Rather than a survey, I was offered a free medical alert bracelet which I declined. Then there was an offer for life insurance. Hmmmm, it started to dawn on me that the good public servants at USPS referred me to an 800 spam no. But I played along to be sure. And sure enough, there was a 3rd offer for some other product.


Must be ****-poor morale down at the post office these days.

You mis-dialed by one number. You should have hung up and re-dialed.

Accessing their website is easy. Register, follow the links, pay for the stamps and your postal carrier would've dropped off the stamps the next business day.

This is correct. I order boxes from the website, and they're delivered to my door.

Yeah guys, I've ordered stamps in the past, no problemo, but couldn't access this time. Invalid username and/or password was the emessage. So they first sent me a temp password but that failed. Tried to re-register, emessage said that I was already registered. Duh, I'm aware of that but existing username and PW didn't work. Sent another email and got the SPAM phone no.
