USPS Offering Cash Prizes in Automated Postal Centers Sweepstakes

The U.S. Postal Service wants its customers to handle their own postage — and is offering cash prizes to those who do. At post offices nationwide, including three in Greensboro, customers will get a chance at $250 daily cash prizes and a grand prize of $10,000 when they use the Automatic Postal Center kiosks rather than standing in line to be served.
