I checked up on this a few weeks ago. We don't have the discount anymore. I guess you can get a discount with Delta cargo but you have to go to the Delta cargo location at the airport to get the discount.

Thanks for the info. Last thing I would do would be shipping stuff through delta cargo. No baseline insurance no thanks.

Yes, at a fedex storefront. But it has to be airmail.

Iíve never had luck with UPS; whether itís because itís just not a thing or because the employees are stupid is unknown.

Ups? FillerIt's only with FedEx. I quoted it once at a store and even with the 70% off or whatever it is it was still 3 times as expensive as ground. Air is crazy expensive

If you can drop it off at a FedEx airport location and process it right there you get a hefty discount and they will mark it as next day service even though I never pay for next day air. I've been sending gifts to Ireland around this time of year every year using the Delta discount with no issues but for some reason it works better and cheaper at airport shipping site than a retail store like Kinko's

I have no idea about UPS as I've never tried to ship with them.

I think the discount is still a thing...? Unless it's changed between Thanksgiving and now. It was 75% off air freight and 50% off FedEx ground. I just showed the lady at the shipping counter my employee ID during check out. This was done at your standard FedEx Office/Ship store.
