HUGE increase in postal rates for our two-pack of DEFJUGs

Jan 28, 2020

We are extremely disappointed in having to increase the price of our two-pack of 2.5 gallon DEFJUGS.  Six months ago USPS removed our capability to purchase postage online for parcel select postage for packages exceeding one cubic foot.  However, we were able to purchase the postage in person at the post office so we did that in order to maintain our prices.  As of January 26, 2020, USPS has eliminated that option, too.  They have fully implemented a dimensional weight cost for packages exceeding one cubic foot, which doubles the price of shipping for light weight packages in large boxes. Shipping a two-pack across the country now costs about $47!  

Other USPS shipping cost increases were more moderate, but are also reflected in our revised pricing.  You will now find it is less expensive to order two single 2.5 gallon DEFJUGS separately than the price of a two-pack.  We wanted you to know why!  Each single DEFJUG will come in a separate box to avoid the dimensional weight increase associated with sending a larger box.  We will continue to look for ways to minimize shipping costs in the future.

Thanks for your continued interest in our products!
