Did Swiss Post cut parcel delivery prices?

For years the delivery price for parcels up to 2Kg was CHF 9 APost and CHF 7 BPost.

But the last few times I posted parcels the prices were CHF 8 and 6 respectively.

When I check the Swiss Post web site here the prices are still 7 & 9?

I sent a few parcels today by A Post and noticed afterwards that the lightest one (under 1Kg) was only 8 instead of 9, so I guess they have. I'll ask tomorrow when I'm back at the Post what's happened

According to the nice lady at my local post office, they are having a sort of holiday special on packages during December, CHF 1 off the usual price.

Something to smile about on an otherwise grey and rainy day...
