^^ Sounds like he was just turning them inside out and putting new labels on them. I have two packages today that I am sending out in reused boxes. We'll see how it goes. One is a Medium box that I cut down and covered in brown paper and taped. The other is a small flat rate that I covered and taped.

I read a couple more articles that said if they suspect it is a Flat Rate box, they reserve the right to open it and check even if its covered. Personally, I disagree with this, but guess it's their rules. I still say if you cut a box down and cover it, you would be less apt to get it looked at.

I've done it and instead of getting charged 12.50 for the med flat rate box, when I reused it I got charged for the weight of it as if it was just a regular box, so if you reuse it the flats rate doesn't apply

I've used and re-used USPS boxes that I've gotten back a few times lol. I just take a blank white paper and cover the old stuff up.
