Default Fed Ex or UPS Shipping Discount

Anyone know what discounts are available and how to get the deals?

Fedex only as far as I know. Ask for the interline discount and show them your crew ID.

With FedEx it should be 75% off 2 day shipping. Go into any store with Crew badge. They are great to work with.

Thought it was 75% off any option (not sure about International though)

Should be able to ask the counter folks for quotes\options.

75% off on air ( next day ) and a small discount on ground. Many times for me it has been cheaper to ship next day than ground.

Ground shipping is different. Since it doesnít fly there is no discount. 2 and 3 day air are usually the best deals

3-day to ship an empty Luggage Works bag for repairs was $22, a savings of over $44. Not sure if the discount varies by service.

Another Way to save: Itís always cheaper to send to a Business address when able instead of a Residential address.
