USPS Helps Make Sure Your Presents Make It to the Chimney on Time

Printer Friendly »

Christmas is just under a month away. While some of us may not be able to spend this holiday season with our family, Santa and his friends at the post office are still on call to help make your season magical. And that means helping to make sure your gifts get there on time.

On their Holiday Newsroom page, USPS has listed the Mail-By Dates for 4 of their shipping services to make sure your packages get there before December 25th, but we decided to get you an early present for being on the Nice List this year.

Shipping Service Mail-By Date*
USPS Retail Ground December 15th
First-Class Mail® December 18th
Priority Mail® December 19th
Priority Mail Express® December 23rd

* These dates are for an estimated delivery time before December 25th and therefore are not a guarantee. The actual delivery date is dependent on multiple conditions such as origin and destination.

You can find the full list of shipping service mail-by dates, including International and Military Mail deadlines linked in our Resources below. Also, you can keep up with the upcoming 2021 Shipping Rate Change for the three major carriers on our Rate Change hub. >. It’ll be sure to “bah” all the shipping humbugs that might appear.
