THE United States Postal Service (USPS) has an identity confirmation surcharge that will cost Americans – but there might be a way to get your money back.
The government agency allows customers to request a refund at its more than 31,000 locations across the US
However, there’s a caveat for those who need to change their addresses.
The USPS will slap your credit card company with a $1.10 surcharge.
But luckily, it might be reversible by taking action – however, the address must be changed online to qualify for a refund.
After completing the steps online, the USPS verifies everything by matching your billing address with your new or old address.
After you are hit with the fee, you’ll need to call 1-800-238-3150 to put in a request for a refund.
“Refunds are considered on a case-by-case basis,” the USPS policy reads.
While it’s not guaranteed to work, Americans will be refunded $1.10 to their credit cards if approved.
