Holiday Shipping Deadlines The Professor December 10, 2013 Professor's Tips The holiday season is a busy and hectic time of year for everyone, and for those who have family and friends they wish to send gifts to it can be extra hectic. Getting your gifts in the mail in good time for pre-Christmas arrival isn’t always accomplished. Trust me, I once sent gifts too late and had to tell my family to enjoy their “New Year’s gifts”. While the holiday season isn’t about material gifts, it is nice to show those you hold dear to your heart that you love them with a little token. Shipping deadlines: U.S. Postal Service Standard Postal Service: December 14 First-Class: December 20 Priority Mail: December 21 Priority Mail Express: December 23 FedEx FedEx SmartPost: December 12 FedEx Home Delivery: December 16 FedEx Ground: December 16 FedEx Express Saver: December 19 FedEx 2 Day: December 21 FedEx Standard/Priority/First Overnight: December 23 FedEx Same Day: December 25 UPS Normal pickup/delivery: December 20 UPS 2nd Day Air: December 21 (Pick up service provided for regular Saturday pick up customers of air and international shipments only, or if prearranged by Friday, December 20) UPS Next Day Air: December 23 Keep in mind that the longer you wait, the more it will cost you.
