Introducing Post Office Box Rewards

Enjoy offers and discounts from our favourite businesses. Simply link your existing PO Box or lease a new PO Box through MyPost. Terms and conditions apply.

Pricing and set-up

You can lease a box or bag for up to one year and then renew it annually. Please check at your individual PO Box location as PO Box sizes and availability may vary. You’ll also get a discount on your annual lease when you pay your renewal by 31 March each year (non-business customers only).

Our pro rata pricing runs from 1 April until 31 March the following year.

For new leases, you'll pay an establishment fee, and what's left of the annual pro rata price, depending on what month you take out your lease. The pro rata charge for each month is one twelfth of the annual fee.

Any lease that starts in February or March will include charges for a full year in addition to pro rata fees.
