USPS Full-Service Technical Credit Matched Dollar for Dollar by AccuZIP

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

ATASCADERO, CA – AccuZIP has announced a bold offer for its professional direct mail and QR code tracking service, and other products, to match dollar for dollar the amount of any mailer’s proposed USPS Tech Credit.  This would give each mailer that qualified for the proposed Tech Credit the ability to track and report 100% of their direct mail and QR Codes by simply uploading every IMb to the AccuZIP secure server.  The USPS notified all mailers that qualified for a proposed Tech Credit amount in a February 2013 letter. The letters they sent out included information on the exact dollar amount, the qualifying CRID(s) and the associated mailer information.  The proposed Tech Credit amount was awarded based on mail volume criteria during the period used by the USPS to determine qualification.  AccuZIP’s dollar for dollar matching offer is listed below:   

Permit Holder Volume

125,001 – 500,000

$5,000.00 Tech Credit

AccuZIP president Steve Belmonte stated, “This offer is available to any business that has received the proposed “USPS Tech Credit Letter”. The credit may be applied to AccuZIP’s mail and QR code tracking service, and any remaining credit may be applied toward the purchase of any AccuZIP postal software and data quality products.  We realize that this is an aggressive move, but we value the investment the mailers who have earned these Tech Credits have made or will be making to become Full Service certified.  Our offer will provide a dollar for dollar ‘match’ to any new business these mailers do with AccuZIP.”  Belmonte added, “AccuZIP wants to reward the efforts these organizations have made and let them know that we, too, recognize the cost impact it has had on their business.  This will allow these organizations to push their IM barcode data to our server and have their own branded, professional direct mail and QR code tracking service immediately and fully hosted.  This will allow these organizations to compete in this competitive direct mail communication market by providing a service that the industry expects.” 

AccuZIP is dedicated to helping mailers optimize the value of the proposed USPS Tech Credit and work with them to take full advantage of what they have earned.   If you received the Tech Credit letter dated February 2013, it’s imperative to contact AccuZIP before April 15, 2013 to redeem the full proposed USPS Tech Credit amount.

  • There is no monetary or cash value 
  • Only one AccuZIP Match Amount will be accepted per organization (Tax ID)

  • AccuZIP Match Amount cannot be used to pay for a recently paid product or service. For example, if you have purchased a new service or new product from AccuZIP, we will not cancel that order so you can pay for it using the AccuZIP Match Amount. Instead, you can use the AccuZIP Match Amount to first purchase a new license to AccuTrace, or if you already have a license to AccuTrace, you can purchase another product or service, excluding LIVINGMAIL.

For example, if you own a license for AccuTrace and AccuZIP6 Business Edition and have not had a license to our Pallet option for at least one (1) year, you can use the AccuZIP Match Amount to buy one of the Pallet options
  • If you own a license for the AccuZIP6 Business Edition and do not have a license to any other products or services, you must use the AccuZIP Match Amount for AccuTrace first, then the balance for another new product or service you have not had for at least one (1) year
