More junk mail coming

Posted: Updated:

Your mailbox may be getting a lot more "junk mail" soon. The  New York Times  reports the United States Postal Service is working to greatly increase its direct-mail advertising customer base.  That means more so-called "junk mail" deliveries to millions of mailboxes.  That also means a lot more revenue for the struggling USPS. 

The Times says Postal Service officials estimate increased mail marketing could create more than a billion dollars in new revenue every year.  The report says nearly half of all mail delivered in the U.S. is advertising.
