I noticed today while looking at my eTopps portfolio that starting in 2012 their shipping rates are being increased. To see that shipping rates are going up doesn't surprise me, especially when rates haven't been touched in a few years. What caught my eye was they are discontinuing the use of Performance Points to pay for shipping. Currently one point = $1. I've got 20+ points left and there is nothing in their Rewards catalog I care for so I plan to ship just about everything in my portfolio minus the few current cards I have like Cam Newton and Tim Tebow.
So if you too have older cards sitting there and you want to take advantage of the current shipping rates or use Performance Points to pay for your shipping you might want to act now!
