UPS planning to end discounts for oversized packages

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- UPS reportedly plans to end big discounts on oversized packages during the holidays.

The Wall Street Journal says UPS is informing dozens of retailers that it will do away with those discounts year-round in some cases.

Experts say the move could have a major impact on consumers.

Shoppers would be forced to buy items at a store or absorb some of the shipping charges for oversized packages with a value of more than $57.

Items currently included in the discounts range from grills to mattresses and furniture.
