Does the USPS Lose $1.46 on Every Amazon Package? No.

By Sahid Fawaz

Conservatives have the USPS in their crosshairs again. This time they claim that it is being taken for a ride by Amazon – to the turn of $1.46 per package.

Conservative media personality Eric Bolling tweeted:

It turns out, however, that he and other conservatives are completely misusing $1.46 figure.

Politifact reports:

“The $1.46 figure comes from an April 2017 Citigroup analysis, but Bolling cites the figure inaccurately.

The number is what Citigroup suggested the post office charge if it wanted to make more money by using a new pricing formula. The report made no suggestion that the post office was losing that much money on current, actual deliveries.

Bolling’s statement is not accurate and we rate it False.
