USPS is offering a 3% Discount on Your Postage with Use of QR Codes on Your Direct Mail Piece.

This Mobile Barcode Promotion runs July 1, 2011, through August 31, 2011.
For a limited time, the United States Postal Service™ is offering business mailers an upfront 3% discount on First-Class™ and Standard Mail letters and flats that include a mobile (Quick Response) barcode. The following rules apply:

  • Mobile barcodes [QR Codes] must be two-dimensional and readable by a mobile smartphone.
  • Mailing documentation must be submitted electronically, and mail must be sent with postage paid through a permit imprint.
  • All mail pieces in a postage mailing statement must contain a mobile barcode.
  • With the exception of the Intelligent Mail® barcode (IMb™) full-service discount, only one incentive per mailing will apply.
  • The objective of the two-dimensional mobile barcode on eligible mail pieces must be to initiate interaction with consumers via mobile smartphones to market, promote, or educate. Two-dimensional barcodes used for other purposes – such as internal corporate operational processes, or postage evidencing – are not eligible for the discount.
  • Mail must be tendered for acceptance during the promotion period, July 1, 2011, through August 31, 2011.
