SALT LAKE CITY — As the holiday season kicks into high gear, those planning to send gifts via USPS, UPS, or FedEx should act quickly to guarantee an on-time Christmas delivery.
The United States Postal Service sets the earliest deadline, with standard packages and holiday cards required to be shipped by this Saturday, December 16th, for delivery by Christmas.
UPS and FedEx offer a bit more flexibility, extending their deadlines to Dec. 21 and 22.
Limited services will be available on Christmas Eve, and no service is provided on Christmas Day.
These deadlines are sooner than previous years. This is likely due to how close Christmas is to the weekend with Christmas Eve on a Sunday.
Make sure you ship out your Christmas gifts, and order any last minute ones soon so you don’t miss out.
