Just to be clear - its not just one package - you can ship as many as you want on that Tuesday?

Tuesday is 24 hours. Just login during low traffic times.

One free shipment per Tuesday per account, according to the terms.

Did you put the real weight in when you made the label or did you fudge it? Were they large packages?
I have a 6 kg item I want to send, but it's in a big box (50 x 30 x 40 cm) I'm wondering if I can ship it using this promotion.

I'm moving to Vancouver and need to ship things! Not in a huge rush so I can easily ask family to ship each Tuesday. Only thing is the 5kg limit doesn't really seem so great given the potential volume of things I'd want to ship

Am I able to create the account and have someone drop off at Canada Post on my behalf? Can I just pay some difference or something over the 5kg limit?

Basically how can I make the most of this, shopping some of my belongings out to bc :)

It doesn't matter who drops off at the post office. Since you would have already created a shipping label and printed it at home all the counter person does is accept it and scan it.

Easiest thing would be for you to make up a bunch of 5kg parcels in advance. Then have a family member create an account and print one label every Tuesday.

Okay thanks. Having a hiccup creating account on mobile, but it includes the default $100 insurance right? What about tracking?

From one of my posts in last year's thread: http://forums.redflagdeals.com/send-pac ... k-2128367/
"Our last week parcel was 20 lbs and this weeks was 18 lbs. No charge for either on the receipt beside the label print out. Both say 'Total Transaction Amount= $0.00 CAD'"

Yes, Xpresspost comes with both tracking and $100 liability coverage.

Being a Small Business / VentureOne account holder always gives you free tracking and $100 insurance, even for the basic "Business Expedited " service.

Also I always select Do Not Safe Drop, so they don't just dump the package at the door, leaving it vulnerable to porch pirates. That's a free option.
