This may not help now but for the future, you can order Flat Rate boxes from USPS for free and use them whenever you need to. Actually, I am not so sure about the order part but I signed up with them with my address and name and got a pack of 5 of each size for free.

flat rate boxes are free at the post office, so if u have 20minutes free go there get the box, pack it and ship it all at the same time. u should send it certified and insured anyway

Did you read the OP's post? He wants to ship it tomorrow, Monday, which is a holiday. His problem is that the Post Office is closed.

To the OP: Quite frankly, if you knew you were going to sell the iPad and wanted to ship it so fast, you should have gotten the box ahead of time. Trying to do that on a holiday is going to be hard because it's probably not going to be processed until Tuesday, even if you find a way to get it packed up and dropped off tomorrow.

Back in my day we had these things called post offices. You went there, and could ship things.

Just another thought- all the post offices near me have a 24/7 area where the PO boxes are with an automated mailing machine and flat rate boxes available for the taking. Plus a drop box that can fit the large box.

What they said. The post office nearest me has the priority boxes located in the "lobby" area which is open 24/7.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooo ! :eek:

Call Apple and inform them you sold it and give them the name of the person you sold it to. Have the person call Apple to confirm transfer of the device.
