I just got a package back on which I apparently wrote the address wrong. It came back with a barcode sticker on it and the ZIP code scribbled off on the address label and the auto-printed "stamp" I bought at the kiosk. There's no "No such address" or anything on it and the stamp doesn't look cancelled.

Can I just fix the address and put it back in the outgoing mail? Or do I need to buy a new stamp? Anyone know?

I think you'll need to buy a new postage for it, i.e. a new stamp from the kiosk. They'd probably have a record of your previous attempt in their systems and it's illegal to use postage more than once.

Yes you'll most likely need new postage. If it wasn't your fault, i.e. the post office's (good luck convincing them so) then they might refund it, but it'd be a hassle.

The way it's not illegal, I believe, is to re-address a package or envelope and mark it "Please Forward". This presumes that the package has not been opened and that the "forwarding address" is not merely one digit different than the original.

Argh. $15 down the drain. Remember to double check the address! Thanks.
