NEW YORK — Coupons are a classic Christmas gift.
But with the holiday season upon us, people have been buying digital versions of popular coupon products to save on their bills.
Now, a new “acme” digital coupon has been launched by the U.S. Postal Service to help customers save on the cost of Christmas.
“The new digital coupon is a $1 discount off most items,” the USPS posted on its website.
The discount is valid from Dec. 20 through Dec. 25.
And the new offer is available to U.K. customers only.
If you’re not sure where to start, the USPS offers a link to “Coupon Codes” on its web site.

In recent years, many retailers have introduced discount offers for Christmas.
But the U!
postal service has never launched such a discount, and the USPS does not sell the discount directly.
This is a great way to save money, says Jeff Zirns, president of Zirnes Consumer Finance and a longtime postal employee.
People have been saying, ‘We can save money this year, by doing this,'” ZirNS said.
He points to a study by Zirners in 2017 that found Americans spent $2.2 billion on Christmas spending, more than the amount spent on the entire year for the whole of 2017.
There are more than 100 million U.s postal employees, so the USPS has a significant reach into communities.
It’s a new and innovative marketing strategy, ZirNs said.
The new discount offers are not just a way to cut back on the costs of holiday shopping, Zirs said.”
I don’t think it’s about cutting back on holiday spending, but a lot of these programs are really good value for money,” he said.
It’s also good to be able to save some money, Zirin said.
