**I received this item at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.**
My new Smart Weigh Shipping and Postal Scale is amazing! I dread going into the post office because there are never enough people working the counter and the lines are always so long. I am so excited that I will no longer need to wait in those long lines! When I need to ship a large envelope or box, I can weigh it at home with my postal scale to find out how much shipping will cost me. Then I can go to the post office website, pay for my postage and print off the shipping slip. It's a lot easier to mail something when all you need to do is walk into the post office and put the box on the counter. Luckily, one of the workers always seems to ask if anyone has anything that they just need to drop off. I can't even begin to express how happy this is making me. Especially with the holidays coming up.
It is really easy to use. As soon as I opened the package, I was able to start using my new scale. When I pulled it out of the box, I could tell that this was a heavy duty scale. It comes with batteries, a USB cable and an extendable cord. The scale can hold items up to 440 pounds. There's no way I will ever need to ship anything close to that weight but it's nice to know that I could if I wanted or needed to.
I am so glad that I have this in my home!
