Still doing last minute shopping? Well, the lucky recipient of your gift just might be abl to open it up December 25 if you send the present through the US Postal Service by the dates below.
“We suggest holiday shippers both in and outside the country use one of our Priority Mail products to send gifts and good wishes,” said Gary Reblin, vice president Domestic Products. “The Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes come in a variety of sizes and are always free. Remember — ‘if it fits it ships’ for a low flat rate.”
Avoid the naughty list and postmark domestic mail — mailed from and delivered within the U.S. — and international mail destined for overseas by:
Domestic Mail Product Mail-by Date First-Class Mail Dec. 20 Priority Mail Dec. 21 Express Mail Dec. 22 DDU Drop Ship Dec. 22
Using a Parcel Post or DNDC Drop Ship won't guarantee receiving the present in time.
International Mail Addressed to: Mail-by Date Africa Dec. 20 Asia/Pacific Rim Dec. 19 Australia/New Zealand Dec. 29 Canada Dec. 21 Caribbean Dec. 20 Central & South America Dec. 20 Mexico Dec. 21 Europe Dec. 20 Middle East Dec. 20
Senders must now use "Global Express Guaranteed," and not First-Class Mail, Priority Mail International or even Express Mail International if the present is to make it into a stocking or under a tree.
