Having a USB Scale for weighing items to calculate postage is very handy. Unfortunately, many of these scales are expensive. Stamps.com is currently GIVING AWAY a 5LB USB Scale ($50 value) to new customers and you can even keep the scale after the 4 week trial ends. However, you need to use their proprietary software in order to read the scale and cancelling your Stamps.com subscription prevents you from using their software. Your free scale becomes worthless!
