When you guys run your deals like 2 for 1 credit or 4 for one credit, how do you package the books up? Do you still use PBS postage? I want to run a deal, I just want everyone else's suggestions. :)

Depends - several books if not too thick can be wrapped together, bundles of wrapped books of similar sizes can be taped securely together, large numbers of books can be sent in a box.

I have a ream of 11x17 paper that I used to wrap when the 8.5x11 is too small.

I do sometimes use PBS postage - the instant credit feature gets more and more cost-effective on multiple credit deals.  Just enter the right weight.

I haven't figured out how to use PBS postage for shipping more than one book at a time.  But Iuse it all the time for singles.  If I am shipping 2 or 3 books, I wrap them up together in plastic wrap and then brown paper and tape securely with packing tape.  then I take them to the post office to mail.

You can change the PBS postage to the weight you need and it will re-calculate the postage
