I usually get charged that amount for a 6X9 manilla envie that is stuffed. Sometimes they do charge you more if the envie is fat because it doesn't go thru the machines.

Another factor may be the metal clasp on the envelope...Have you tried taking off the metal clasp in the back?(if you grap it & wiggle it ,it will come off easily-w/out leaving a huge hole).
I was told at the post office that they charge extra if you leave it on(they always flip it over & feel to check if there is one).It probably has to do w/weather they can run it thru a machine vs.handling it by hand.

Definitely watch your thickness-my post office has a template they slide the envies through-if it won't fit-they charge more-it does pay to split big shipments into 2 envies & if you lay all the coupons out in a nice even layer just smaller than your envelope & then slide it in it does make a difference in thickness instead of just cramming them into the envelope.
I have found one post office is just higher no matter what-they always charge me more than the other post office.
And take off your metal clasp....

And I got three- my husband asked just what was going on if it was a pyramid scheme or the like. Thank you!

Thank you for letting me know- again sorry that it went out later that week. I am going to mail early for my trip next week. It is a flying trip so i will get them into the mail on Saturday so there is no risk of them being forgotten in my car at the airport!
