Christmas mailing and shipping deadlines for USPS

This week, Dec. 13-18, is predicted to be the busiest mailing, shipping, and delivery week.

INDIANAPOLIS — People sending a card or package through the United States Postal Service are running out of time if they want to get it to its destination by Christmas.

Here are the deadlines as listed by the USPS:

  • Dec. 17 — First-Class Mail service (including greeting cards)
  • Dec. 17 — First-Class packages (up to 15.99 ounces)
  • Dec. 18 — Priority Mail service
  • Dec. 23 — Priority Mail Express service

The busiest time of the season peaks two weeks before Christmas, when last-minute shopping starts. This week, Dec. 13-18, is predicted to be the busiest mailing, shipping, and delivery week.

USPS has installed 112 processing machines and hired thousands of employees nationwide to process and deliver the more than 12 billion pieces of mail and packages expected this holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.

The following offices are open extended hours for holiday shipping this Saturday, December 18, 2021:
