Signed, sealed, but not delivered-Will you Xmas parcel arrive on time

Today is the last recommended send-by day to ship USPS Priority Mail for delivery by Christmas Day, and Friday is the last recommended send-by day for USPS Priority Mail Express service - see more information on the USPS website.

Nothing quite beats receiving a special delivery in time for Christmas. except perhaps magically finding presents under the tree.

USPS says they are expecting to deliver 3 billion pieces of mail just this week, making it the busiest week of the year.

Priority shipping is the only way to guarantee those items will arrive on time.

McComas added that on an average day, almost 3 million customers visit the nation's brick-and-mortar post offices while more than 2 million customers visit USPS.com online.

Facebook's New Facial Recognition Feature Finds You in Untagged Photos
The facial recognition feature will also notify you if friends or acquaintances upload photos with you in them but don't tag you. According to Sherman, this option will "completely turn off face recognition technology" for a user's account.

Which? advice for consumers this Christmas is that if an order is damaged in the post, you should raise your complaint with the retailer, not the delivery company, as your contract is with the retailer.

"I'm proud of everybody", said Lotito.

Research firm StellaService says December 19 is the most popular cutoff date for retailers, two days earlier than past year.

Monday was expected to be the busiest day for USPS.com as well, postal officials said, with 7 million projected visits.

If you missed Wednesday's deadline for priority shipping, the deadline to overnight is December 22 but it will cost you a pretty penny for that service. "So, consider this more for emergencies, rather than gifts".
