    Why do merchants sometimes ask us for our ZIP code when we buy something? I recently visited the Mob Museum in Las Vegas, an interesting addition to Sin City’s attractions. I paid my admission with a credit card, prompting the museum ticket seller to ask me: “What’s your ZIP code?” When I paused for a moment, she added: “It’s for marketing purposes.” As much as I had heard good things about the museum, I was unlikely to return soon as I live far from Las Vegas, so I was not anxious to receive subsequent marketing. She said it was okay...

  • Legit Question Regarding 5-Digit Zip Code vs 9-Digit Zip Code

    11/30/2006 9:10:27 AM PST · by MplsSteve · 10 replies · 545+ views
    Got a question. Maybe some Freeper out there can answer it. If I were to mail a letter using a 9-digit zip code rather than the 5-digit zip code, will it get to its destination any faster? Or generally does it not make much of a difference? Anyone wanna take a stab at this?

    Just received this in an e-Mail message: Doc, Another Point about CBS, Zip code 77034 does not have and never has had PO Boxes. The closest Zip code in Houston with PO Boxes is 77032. PO Box 34567 Houston, Texas 77034 never existed in 1972 My company is in the data business and has the history on addresses. Propostional spacing was introduced in 1980 with the Xerox Memorywriter which competed with the IBM Selectric. I wouldn't be so sure IBM didn't have a Times Roman font ball. They definitely didn't have it in proportinnal spacing. I spent 28 years with...
