Get Yourself a (Tiny) Jeep from the U.S. Postal Service

The post office has a selection of die-cast cars including delivery Jeeps and a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, and sales benefit the financially challenged government agency.

 

  • The U.S. Postal Service (which is in need of funds) sells die-cast collectible postal vehicles and muscle cars.
  • The USPS receives zero tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on retail sales, services, and postage for income—these toy trucks, for instance.
  • Nearly all the items cost $5.99, with the exception of a $29.99 semi-truck.

 

You might have heard that the U.S. Postal Service is in need of funding. The USPS is legally obligated to deliver and pick up mail to every address in the United States, all while receiving zero tax dollars for operating expenses. Instead, it makes its money via retail sales and postage. With that in mind, and if you already have enough stamps, there is another way to help the USPS while expanding your fleet of toy cars.

The USPS's retail site has a section devoted to toy cars. For $5.99 you can get one of the latest delivery vehicles, or if you're feeling nostalgic, either a white or a blue 1971 USPS Jeep. You can also go all out and get a Mack Anthem semi-truck with the Post Office logo on the side of the trailer for $29.99.

So you can get a sweet Postal Service jeep, and the Post Office will get some much-needed funds to make sure everyone continues to receive the mail. This is especially important with the election coming up and many with compromised immune systems or at-risk citizens leave their homes during the current pandemic. Plus, service men and women stationed abroad will be unable to get to their local polling place. Those people will likely use mail-in and absentee ballots. Without a functioning Postal Service, those voters could very well be denied that opportunity.
