My Pitney Bowes postage meter now costs about $44 per month. Just the basic version. The upgrade with a scale (built-in) will run about $19 per month the first year and then back up to about $44. For those of you that use a meter, do you use PB or someone else? Recommendations? Thanks. On....and by the way...(WARNING-THIS IS OFF TOPIC)...i had a chance to see the TOP-RANKED team in the nation Saturday night. Great game. Miami won 5-2 over Nebraska-Omaha. Saw ex-NHLer Rick Vaive in the stands. His son Justin plays for Miami.
