More “junkmail” means more revenue for cash-strapped Postal Service
(CNN) – Your mailbox may be getting a lot more junk mail soon.
The New York Times reports the U.S. Postal Service is working to greatly increase its direct- mail advertising customer base.
That means more junk mail deliveries to millions of mailboxes and a lot more revenue for the struggling USPS.
The Times says Postal Service officials estimate increased mail marketing could create more than a billion dollars of new revenue every year.
The report says nearly half of all mail delivered in the U.S. is advertising.
