We haven’t welcomed trick or treaters, and Thanksgiving seems so far away, but one thing that is going to sneak up on us is the holiday mailing deadlines for shipping packages and letters or cards to friends and loved ones overseas.
If you plan on sending holiday mail, the US Postal Service has some upcoming deadlines you need to know!
The quickest approaching deadline for guaranteed delivery overseas for anything going USPS Retail Ground is November 7, 2016. Priority Mail and First –Class Mail, letters, and cards have a deadline of December 2 or 9 depending on the APO/FPO/DPO ZIP. Lastly, Priority Mail Express Military Service is available until December 16 for some, but not all, ZIPs.
