It is hard to believe that we're thinking about mailing holiday packages already, but now is the time to think! If you've got packages going to APO and FPO addresses, mailing early can save you a bunch of money. Here are the deadlines:
|Postage Type||APO/FPO 093XX||All Other APO/FPO|
|Express||Not Available||18 December|
|First Class and Priority||04 December||11 December|
|PAL||01 December||04 December|
|SAM||20 November||27 November|
|Parcel Post||13 November||13 November|
More information on various mail services can be found here.
Don't forget that none of these are guaranteed delivery times, just the USPS's best estimates. In this case, earlier is always better.
