no, it's 50 cents per returned item--if you have a really bad mailinglist,
that can add up...  you also have th option of not putting "address
correction requested" on th pieces, then they just get tossed and your
mailing list stays buggy...

every situation is different, & you have to do the math to compare realtive
prices...  say f'rinstance you do 3 mailings a year, 500 pieces:

                firstclass                      3rd class

permit                                               $85

1500 pieces    x.32 = $480                   x.20@ = $300

returns*                                             $12.50

total                 $480                           $397.5

                *(a good list, 5% bad addresses the
                 first time only 'cause you fix 'em)

and again, i'm figuring round numbers off the top ov my head--check
the post office, they're supposed to help...
