holiday cards shipping deadlines

Shipping Deadlines: Here’s When to Send Via USPS, FedEx, & UPS For the Holidays

With just a few days left before the year ends, many people still don’t have their packages or cards sent. This is why I recommend you send them now!

The post office is not the only place that packages need to be delivered by December 25th. The U-S Postal Service, FedEx and UPS all have deadlines for sending their mailings as well; make sure you send in your package early or face significant delays!

The postal service is deliberately delaying shipping times this year to reduce the burden on its own employees. This means that shoppers may face longer wait periods for packages, especially during peak holiday season shopping hours when demand often exceeds supply and causes problems in themselves as well due delays from both shippers and post offices alike.

The postal service is implementing new plans to cut costs, and it may cause complications with your holiday shopping.
