US Postal Service Releases Holiday Delivery Schedule
Even though it slowed first-class mail delivery on October 1st, the US Postal Service says it's ready to handle your holiday cards and gifts - as long as you "get those packages and good wishes to the post office on time."
The Postal Service says if you want to make sure someone gets the gift or card you're mailing by December 25th, you better have it mailed out by December 15th if you're using retail ground service.
Using First-Class mail to send out holiday goodies? Get it mailed out by December 17th. You have until December 18th if you're using Priority Mail.
If you have loved ones overseas in the military and want to send them some Christmas cheer using retail ground service, you need to have it mailed out by November 6th if you want to make sure they get it on Christmas Day.
Sending gifts or cards to someone with an Air, Army, Fleet or Diplomatic address using First-Class or Priority Mail? Get it out by December 9th.
Most of these deadlines are for the continental US only. If you have any questions, stop by USPS.com.
Oh, and expect to pay more to send packages and cards out this year; increases range from one quarter to five dollars per package.
