    Default 3,300 pesos to mail a letter to the states from po

    Yesterday I went to BMcargo to mail a one page letter to the states.
    I have to do this once a year. They said they no longer ship to that
    area. Last year they did but wanted 2,200 to send it. So I used
    the pop general post office. The letter never made it to the states.

    So after BMcargo I went to the UPS office 3,300 pesos. Thats rediculas.
    He said thats next day air. I said I don't need next day. Is there
    a cheaper way. He said no, we only do next day air. ARRGGHHHHH!!!!!

    Any one know of a cheaper way that works?

    I would recommend emailing it. These days emails are very quick.

    INPOSDOM or EPS. Neither way is fast, but both are much cheaper.

    EPS does not send letters anymore. Only by Fedex or UPS at crazy prices. They are great to receive packages under $200, but that is it. Nothing else.

    Thank you for that information that EPS stopped sending letters. Understood on their ability to receive packages for under $200, but I have not used them for that for years now since I use a couple of other couriers that deliver to my door. Does EPS at least deliver now or do you still have to go to their office? Are they cheaper than CPS or Encargopaq for items under $200?

    Back to the OP, then the only cheap way, unless some other courier will handle regular outgoing mail now that EPS does not, is to use INPOSDOM and I see you took that option and it did not work. Oh well, then you have to pay for UPS/FEDEX or other expensive courier unless we find another way. I will certainly be looking into this in the near future.

    I don't believe EPS delivers. I always pick up at the office, never heard of delivery. As for price comparison I can't help you as I only use EPS. I am very happy with the service on packages they have.
