Indeed it is October, when direct mailers' and shippers' thoughts turn to high volume, otherwise known as the holiday season. To assist them in their plans, the U.S. Postal Service today released its on-time mailing and shipping deadlines:

Domestic mail-by dates

Dec. 15 for Standard Post: ground service for less-than-urgent deliveries and over-sized packages

Dec. 19 for First Class Mail: service for standard-sized, single-piece envelopes and small packages weighing up to 13 ounces with delivery in three business days or less

Dec. 21 for Priority Mail: service in one, two, or three business days based on origin and destination

Dec. 23 for Priority Mail Express: This is the fastest domestic option, with guaranteed overnight scheduled delivery to most locations. Some restrictions and exceptions apply. (Postage refund eligibility is adjusted for shipments mailed from December 22-25.)
