If you order often from Amazon, it’s nice to find a way to reuse boxes and Prime envelopes. But can you actually reuse an Amazon Prime envelope to send your own package? Below, we answer this question and tell you everything you need to know!
You can reuse an Amazon Prime envelope (that is still in good condition) when sending your own package or mail. First, ensure that all previous shipping information and barcodes are completely covered and near impossible to read. Then, go to your mail carrier to pay for shipping.
Keep reading below to learn even more about what you can and cannot do in this type of situation!
Reusing Amazon Prime envelopes is a great way to keep from consistently throwing these envelopes away. After all, if you can use them for another purpose, why wouldn’t you?
If you’re looking to reuse Amazon Prime envelopes, you should first start by ensuring that the envelope is completely sturdy and in good condition. No tears or damages should be apparent. You do want your package to get to wherever it’s headed in one piece, after all.
Then, you should take your time and evaluate the envelope. Cross out with a black marker or Sharpie any previous shipping information or barcodes. You can also completely cover these previous shipping labels with new shipping labels.
Regardless of how you go about this, you should just ensure that all previous shipping information is completely covered. This will help keep any confusion away — and ensure that the wrong barcode isn’t scanned on your package’s journey!
Some mail scanners are very sensitive. They’ll pick up any type of barcode that comes their way. This is why it’s so important to ensure that any previous barcodes are completely covered before you ship your new package.
If the previous barcode is scanned, rather than the new one, then a lot of confusion can happen — and your package may take a long time to be delivered to its location.
So, to keep this confusion from happening, always make sure all barcodes and shipping information from previous shipments are completely covered!
You don’t need to cover any Amazon logos or markings if you don’t want to. Much like when reusing Amazon packages, logos do not need to be covered up at all. Just shipping information and barcodes!
Yes, you can reuse Amazon Prime envelopes when shipping with the USPS. According to the USPS, you just need to ensure that all previous shipping labels and barcodes are completely covered, as we mentioned above.
Once you have your item set in the reusable Prime envelope, and once you have all the previous shipping information covered, just head to your local USPS location to pay for shipping!
Similar to USPS, you can also reuse Amazon Prime envelopes when shipping new packages through UPS. As we’ve already mentioned, just keep all previous shipping information and barcodes completely covered!
Once you have your Prime envelope ready to go, take it down to your local UPS office to pay for shipping!
You can also reuse Amazon Prime envelopes when shipping new packages through FedEx — just as you can with USPS and UPS! Again, just make sure you follow all guidelines and rules to ensure that your package will end up where it needs to be!
There are many ways you can reseal an Amazon bubble mailer. One of the easiest ways is to use high-quality packing tape to ensure that you’re truly resealing the Amazon Prime envelope.
After all, you want to keep the items in the envelope from getting out! As the envelope has already been opened, definitely make sure that you’re resealing accurately!
You can reuse Amazon Prime envelopes when mailing a new package through USPS, UPS, and FedEx. First, only use envelopes of good quality. Then, ensure that all previous shipping information and barcodes are completely covered. Then, head to your local mail carrier to pay for any shipping costs!
