Use of Postal Credit Cards

Postal Credit Cards: Penalty for Private Use

  • Misuse of a postal credit card can result in discipline or removal from your job.
  • Postal credit cards may only be used for official travelrelated expenses. Don’t use it for airline tickets to visit friends or family, for gambling at a casino – even while on official travel (we don’t make these things up!), or purchasing personal items.

Using the postal credit card only for its intended purposes helps the Postal Service control expenses, which contributes to the financial health of the Postal Service.

And that’s smart business.

Contact the Ethics Office (ethics.help@usps.gov) if you need more guidance. But you shouldn’t really need more guidance on this one, should you?
