Free reply codes are a mechanism that allows you to send a prepaid return letter to your recipient. This way, when they get your letter, they can reply to it at no cost to them. To add a free reply, you just write your letter and on the review page (just before you actually send your letter) there is a checkbox that allows you to add a free reply code. The cost of the free reply code is deducted from your credit balance along with the letter charge.
