EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – It’s just the first week of November, but it’s already time to think about getting your holiday gifts in the mail.
The U.S. Postal Service is releasing ship-by dates for this year.
Some ground-shipping deadlines for overseas military destinations have already passed.
The deadline for first-class mail and packages is December 20th for regular mail to arrive by Christmas. Priority mail’s deadline is December 21st.
And for procrastinators, the priority mail express is December 23rd, but that is going to cost you a lot!
Check USPS.gov for a full list of domestic and international holiday shipping deadlines.
And the United Parcel Service says it expects online gift-giving to hit an all-time record. It expects to handle more than one million return packages every day in December.
