anything that looks like it is free, is. the carboard boxes are all free, but they have restrictions, like that they have to be used for shipping, although they probibly wont know, id assume it is some sort of federal crime because it is the governments money...

so wait. are these actually free?? i keepasking this because i dont want to get charger 200 dollars for these boxes. is there any place where the restrictions are? i wanna read them.

yes they are free, you put them in your cart, type in your address and the mail them to you, why, because they will potentially gain your business in return for 25 empty carboard boxes. sounds like a deal.

they ship them for free. the restrictions are that its a crime to use them for something other than shipping (i.e.: building forts or burning)

you wont be billed, theyd make sure you had enough money first. eg credit card, they dont care, once they charge, it isnt their problem, you not paying them directly still is their problem.
