Christmas shipping deadlines

Sorry to be a grinch, but the deadlines to get orders in for (lower cost) ground delivery from UPS, United States Postal Service and Federal Express have already passed.

That doesn’t mean it’s too late to get those gifts to the doorstep in time for Christmas, however. And the postal elves are working overtime to help you make holiday magic. Deadline is Now!!! And for most it was yesterday!

Some 2.5 billion packages are expected to be shipped this holiday season, a new record, up from 2.3 billion a year ago, according to a new study.
