Customers placing orders by December 3rd will receive the flat-rate boxes in time to meet the December 21st holiday deadline for shipping Priority Mail packages. Box orders are delivered to a customer’s home or business address in seven to 10 days.
By using the USPS Click-N-Ship service, customers can print shipping labels, receive an online discount for postage and receive free Delivery Confirmation service on Priority Mail packages. Once you have all of your shipping supplies, make the holidays complete by letting the Postal Service deal with the weather and traffic by requesting free, next-business-day pickup of Priority Mail packages at usps.com/pickup.
Best Holiday Ever! takes on new meaning with free Flat Rate Boxes and Click-N-Ship at
usps.com. The time and hassle of shipping gifts will melt away, setting the stage for a merry and bright holiday season.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
