Post Office Cancels Saturday Mail Delivery

The US Post Office is cancelling mail delivery on Saturday’s. While this move has been expected for some time as a cost cutting measure, what was not expected was that there will still be Saturday package delivery. The only Saturday service that has been cancelled is first class mail delivery. In addition, if a post office location was open on Saturdays prior to the change in mail service, then it will remain open.

Though services are being cut and postage rates have increased, there are still some benefits of the USPS that are of high value to the average shipper.  Home pickup is available for Priority Mail shipments.  This is in addition to the free package materials available for priority mail shipping.  If most of your shipments fit within the profile of a flat rate box, this option allows for expedited packing as no weighing is necessary.  Home pickup can be used for other delivery methods as long as at least one of the packages is being shipper Priority Mail.  Ebay/Paypal and Stamps.com allow for postage to be printed from your home at a discount with free delivery confirmation.

One of the best kept secrets of mailing through USPS is the availability of Priority Mail Regional Rate Boxes.  The boxes are available for free and allow for flat rate shipping for “A, B, and C” size boxes.  There are weight limits, but the an “A” box costs between the 1-2 pound rate, but can ship up to 15 pounds.  Regional Rate shipping really shines if you are shipping to a nearby state.
