In our office we use Pitney Bowes for our postage. I got a call today saying that we are on a month to month deal right now since our last contract is expired. The rep on the phone offered me a "upgraded machine" that would save us in ink costs, but cost more monthly. He gave me the model number and I went to the PitneyBowes site and saw that it was about $10/month cheaper for new customers. I told him that and he said that it was for new customers only and that it doesn't include a $10 per postage refill charge. This is such crap. They have you by the balls and since I haven't been able to find an alternative I am stuck with them. Any ideas on other alternatives? stamps.com isn't really an alternative since the last time we used them since we had to do double entry to print the postage. Thanks.
