That standard members receive every month. I've never used this option and would like to. Thank you!

Michele PBS charges users of the PBS Printed postage .55 cents each time they use it.  For 1 time per month they don't have to pay the .55 cents, but they still pay the normal postage to the Post Office. You don't have to request it. It just gets deducted or it doesn't.

Additionally, though it doesn't technically help you yet as TPtB haven't designated an optional use for Free Swaps, but I'm pretty sure that the Free-Postage per month generates a Free Swap when used too.

When we get the no-fee postage printing, the site pays the fee to the postage provider, so we don't get a Free Swap for that printing.
