This economy sucks, srsly. And if you needed to know otherwise, well, look at it this way: in the 1930's, if you had $.60 in your bank account, you'd have enough money to eat for at least a day and probably buy a newspaper. Now? You can buy a stamp and maybe a pack of gum. Try living for a day off of stamp glue and gum alone.
Enter. Instead of buying that stamp and the pack of gum, you can now log in online and daily send out up to 2 free postcards! So, if you're away on vacation and have your digital camera, laptop, and free wi-fi at your hotel? Forget spending a buck on the postcards, just take a family picture, add on some “Wish you were here” sentiments, and upload and send away.
Sure, they put some advertisements on the postcard, but they print it and pay for the postage and everything! And with the way costs are rising, well, that $1.50 could soon buy you two stamps and a candy bar.
