Yes, I know that it’s the day before Halloween, I really do. (And I couldn’t be more excited for one of my favorite Holidays!)
But for those in both the online selling and shipping game, as well as the millions and millions of us that love to shop online, there is one day of the year that is quietly special. And that is the day that the USPS publishes their Holiday Shipping Cutoff Dates and Guidelines for getting our brown paper packages tied up with strings out of our festively decked doors and into the mailstream for our customers.
So without further ado, here are the USPS 2013 Holiday Shipping Dates for every territory and level of shipping available whether it be a leisurely First Class or super speedy Global Express.
To ensure delivery of holiday cards and packages, please refer to the below chart to make sure that your items arrive by December 25th. (Click for a larger version.) And don’t forget, this year Hanukkah begins in the evening of Wednesday, November 27, 2013 and ends in the evening of Thursday, December 5, 2013.
Cheers to all!
