Bulk Business Mail Tag

Today was a great mailbox day! My weekly inserts arrived from Krazy Inserts. My double jogging stroller came to review and even though that didn’t fit in my mailbox it still consider it mail. : ) I had a bunch of great freebies but along with them I found a Bulk Business Mail tag. Has anyone ever received a card like this in your mail? From what I’ve read in a few forums it seems that this belongs to the USPS and wasn’t meant for me. That only seemed to be speculation and I was hoping for a more concrete answer. Can anyone confirm that this is true? I guess if no one knows, I’ll just try to catch my mailman and ask him about it tomorrow.

orange BBM card…?

Post by Paul Mart » Thu, 23 Jul 1998 04:00:00 A few days ago lying outside my mailbox, I found something the mailman apparently dropped. It is an orange plastic card about the size of a number 10 envelope, and it reads as follows: “BBM SCHEDULED FOR TUESDAY DELIVERY For use on Bulk Business Mail in conjunction with the National BBM color code policy” etc etc.

>Any thoughts or comments appreciated… > -Paul You pretty much figured it out. A letter carrier has stacks of catalogs lying around and this helps to keep em straight and prioritize them for delivery. A variant of this card reads “BBM RECEIVED MON. FOR DELIVERY NO LATER THAN WED.” for example. Wednesday cards are green, Thursday is purple, Friday is yellow, Saturday is pink, and I think Monday is blue.
