Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I do occasional selling on eBay and Amazon, so I jumped at the chance to review this for the Amazon Vines program. I'm so, so glad I didn't actually pay for it.

"$45 in postage*" the description promises. (*$5 immediately, and $40 after 30 days).

"Four weeks of service included*" (*and $17.99/month afterward, which is almost half of that $40 in postage they promised [28<30. Do the math])

"Free postage scale* (*just pay shipping and handling)

"Free delivery confirmation with Priority Mail services" (something that is available through the USPS website to anyone using Priority Mail).

And so on.

What's actually in the package is a bunch of mailing labels and a CD. You do get some mailing management software, but, unless you do mass shipping, it's not clear it's that much better than the interface eBay and Paypal already provide. If you jump through a bunch of hoops, and pay an exorbitant monthly fee, you'll get some value back in postage. Not worth it

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Even though it is a good product, the title is misleading since you actually get only USD 5 worth of postage - 45 on the package is only on subscription.

It would probably be more easier to print labels off from post office website.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Avery has joined forces with stamps.com to offer this "starter kit" for print-at-home postage, and while the box makes big, great-sounding promises: "Four Free Weeks of Service!" and "$45 Free Postage" ... the fine print reveals some major drawbacks.

First, the "free" postage. Actually, it's only $5, not $45, unless you subscribe to stamps.com $15.99/month service. And even then it's not $40, it's $10 per month via four separate coupons (my kit had only one), redeemable only via a mail and requiring an ADDITIONAL "6-8 weeks" of waiting, FOR EACH. Oh and the postcard must be mailed using an Avery stamp and stamps.com postage, notch. Oh and, that "four weeks" of free service? It's actually 14 days. When you sign up, they state clearly they'll charge your credit card for a month's service if you don't call and cancel, "within 14 days."

The (ridiculously high, in my opinion) monthly service fee is prohibitive unless you're mailing upwards of $200-$400/month on a regular basis, so that leaves most home users out. Since the postage MUST be printed on stamps.com approved labels, that's another continuing and significant expense, above and beyond the $15.99 monthly fee and postage costs. I also read complaints from people online that cancellation is very difficult (you have to call and get the hard sell from operators) and can not be done online, leaving some with endless auto debits (the only method stamps.com allows for payment), even when they're not using the service.

All you're actually getting with this kit is 5 pages of self-stick, printable mailing labels (10 total), 4 pages of "3-part mailing labels pages" and 5 stamp pages (20 stamps per page).

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm going along with the many other reviewers out there who feel a little confused & misled by this product name. You don't get $45 in postage without signing up for paid subscription services, and the benefits don't really ever kick in for the casual postal customer.

In order to enjoy real savings (in both time & money) from this kit, you'll need to be the type of person who sends out letters and parcels frequently -- small business owner, online storefront, secretary (?), etc.

As for me, I think I'll stick with using the post office. A paper slip asking me to sign up for some online services isn't really what I'd consider a worthy buy.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a very misleading offer from a company that probably invested way too much VC money in a failed scheme and is now desperately trying to maintain a business that does not deserve to exist.

For the typical user (someone who mails a few things a week) there is nothing you can do with this $18 a month software that cannot be done for FREE online with USPS, UPS, or FedEx.

The Bait & Switch of this offer:

When you look at the description of this product, you are thinking that you get a $45 postage credit, right? WRONG! You actually get $5, but that is NOT made clear until AFTER you have signed up and supplied a valid credit card number. Then guess what - there is no easy way to cancel your account once you figure out what a questionable product this is!

Yes, that's right folks - you have to CALL their "customer service center" which is only open Monday - Friday during normal business hours. I don't know about you, but during that time, I'm BUSY WORKING and don't want to spend an hour on hold waiting for someone who barely speaks English to make it difficult for me to cancel my account.

I was going to post a review about feature/functionality, because I did install the software and use it, taking a lot of notes in the process. However, it would be a waste of your time (and mine) to bother, since the service itself is such a poor value. If you are a business that requires a large volume of mailing, then get a postage meter and dispense with the hassles of this lightweight desktop product. If you are like me (a small home-based business), it is far more economical to just use the various FREE online options for printing labels. For a few bucks you can buy postage labels directly from USPS (for less than what Stamps.com charges, btw).
