So..last week sometime (I think it was last week...time seems to slip together...) I decided to mail a nerf-esque football to Ms. Ashley's (if she had a blog..I would link to her..*cough* HINT HINT *cough*) better half. While placing the stamps on the ball I decided to do a quick internet search to see if anyone else had tried this before. Look what I found!
This whole site is dedicated to sending balls through the mail!! How cool is that?
Ok. Now the slightly crazy part..they charge around $20 per ball. For those of you who do not regularly send balls (or other odd objects through the mail) $20 is a bit steep. There is $16 for the ball and $4 for the shipping.
Now..you can mail a package (the ball would be considered one) that weighs 13 oz for around $3.42. Now that is a little over the weight of a can of soda (which is 12 oz). OH and if you take a look at their picture...they only put three $1 stamps on the ball!
So how about $16 for a ball? I routinely see them in the stores for under $4. So the total cost to send them should be under $10. But I guess that is how the company makes their money right?
So now let me ask you. Would you pay $20 to send a ball to someone or would you just mail one yourself? (In case you are wondering..I would mail it myself..and I may have to soon. So keep an eye on you mailbox..I may surprise you!)
