2013 Holiday Mailing Dates

The United States Postal System (USPS) has announced the recommended mailing dates for packages and envelopes going to APO/FPO/DPO addresses.  Unlike years past, there are really only two sets of dates.

For almost all APO/FPO/DPO addresses:

Priority Mail Express Military Service:  December 17th

First Class mail:  December 10th

Priority mail:  December 10th

PAL mail:  December 3rd

SAM mail:  November 26th

Standard Post:  November 12th

For APO/FPO/DPO addresses that begin with 093:

Priority Mail Express Military Service:  not available

First Class mail:  December 3rd

Priority mail:  December 3rd

PAL mail:  December 3rd

SAM mail:  November 26th

Standard Post:  November 12th

Please keep in mind that these are recommendations and not guarantees.  Earlier is always going to be cheaper and more likely to arrive on time.

I can't believe we're dealing with Christmas already.
