Where do you buy Poly mailers IRL?

Dummy me I put stuff on Ebay and still haven't bought the envelopes to mail it in. I usually buy the ones that are stiff with bubble wrap. Those are getting expensive though. Where can I buy the poly mailers? Wal-Mart, office max, kmart, and dollar stores are my options. Thanks!

The only place Ive seen them is like Staples and you cant buy them individually. And, they are REEEEEEEALLY expensive. Your best bet it to grab a 6 pack of the bubble mailers from WM or Target. Or order some online, and get it priority mailed to you - would still be cheaper than buying them in bulk at a office supply store (they are always pretty over priced on things like that).

yeah, if you buy them online.

before i bought mine online the only polymailers i could find at B&M store was a 100 pack for like 30 something dollars. its called mark up.

and ive never seen them sold indivually sold at any office supply store, even so they'd be just as much as the bubble mailers, i'd assume.

OP, try ebay. i got 100 for 7.49 shipped priority. i think seller is called Value Mailers

Okay... I found a bubble envelope for the dipes that go off today. I have 1 cover that goes off tomorrow. I guess I will just buy another bubble envelope. I will try to order some poly mailers on line before I put anything else on. Thanks!

You know I am not sure what kind of dipes you are sending out or how many or anything but.... if it would fit in a 4 dollar flat rate- go for that. If it is a bigger lot you can pack it in a flat rate 8.10 box- you of course get these from the po and they do not cost anything as the cost is worked into the cost of the flat rate.

They also have envelopes there- not sure how much bubble mailers are but when in a pinch a 50 cent mailer from the po is great and weighs in better than some of those other mailers.

Re: Where do you buy Poly mailers IRL?

If your items weigh at least a pound, you can get free Tyvek mailers at the USPS. I would not reccomend the paper priority envelopes, they always get busted open and in fact, my post office will not accept them if they are distorted from a puffy dipe. You can find waterproof mailers at most office supply stores near your house. I'veeven fou them sold individually at the dollar store!

Or you could recycle ones you have received in the mail from purchases...that is what I do and no one has ever complained!
