As per the announcement made in August, we will be adding a temporary price increase in our shipping due to the following release by USPS. If your shipping can be decreased by shipping it First Class, we will do so with all orders. If you do not want it shipped First Class, which takes longer to receive, please add a note to the comment box when you check out to NOT ship First Class & we will ship it Priority Mail.
U.S. Postal Service Announces Proposed Temporary Rate Adjustments for 2022 Peak Holiday Season
WASHINGTON — The United States Postal Service filed notice today with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) regarding a temporary price adjustment for key package products for the 2022 peak holiday season. This temporary rate adjustment is similar to ones in past years that help cover extra handling costs to ensure a successful peak season.
The planned peak-season pricing, which was approved by the Governors of the Postal Service on Aug. 9, would affect prices on the following commercial and retail domestic competitive parcels: Priority Mail Express (PME), Priority Mail (PM), First-Class Package Service (FCPS), Parcel Select and USPS Retail Ground. International products would be unaffected. Pending favorable review by the PRC, the temporary rates would go into effect at 12 a.m. Central on Oct. 2, and remain in place until 12 a.m. Central Jan. 22, 2023.
This seasonal adjustment will bring prices for the Postal Service’s commercial and retail customers in line with competitive practices. No structural changes are planned as part of this limited pricing initiative.
As per USPS guidelines, here are the cut off dates to have packages shipped & hopefully delivered in time for Christmas!
