If you have a loved one serving in the military, and plan on sending cards and presents over the upcoming holidays, the United States Postal Service has some important "send by" dates for you.
Where you're sending your packages and cards dictates how early you need to get them to the post office.
To assure delivery by December 25, generally speaking, standard mail needs to be at your post office by November 7.
If you're sending cards and letters first class, or priority mail, they need to be postmarked between December 3 and December 10.
For military families, the Postal Service offers a discount on its largest Priority Mail Flat Rate Box at $13.80 (online) and $15.90 (retail).
The price includes a $2 per box discount for mail sent to APO/FPO/DPO (Air/Army Post Office/Fleet Post Office/Diplomatic Post Office) destinations worldwide.
To order Military Mail Kits, you can call 800-610-8734.
Guidelines for packing, addressing, and shipping items to U.S. troops can be found at usps.com/ship/apo-fpo-dpo.htm.
To order flat-rate boxes featuring the "America Supports You" logo, go to store.usps.com.
