USPS has released its suggested mail-by dates to help customers make sure their packages, cards and letters arrive in time for this year's holiday season.

The first holiday mailing deadline is Nov. 13 for customers sending Parcel Post packages to APO and FPO addresses. Space Available Mail must be mailed by Nov. 26, regardless of the APO and FPO address.

Last-minute shoppers have until Dec. 22 — the deadline for Express Mail packages — to send mail in the U.S. But they would be wise to send their mail before the final deadline. "We suggest customers mail domestic and international holiday gifts early to beat the rush and avoid the lines," said Gary Reblin, vice president, Domestic Products.

Reblin recommends using one of the Postal Service's Priority Mail products. "The Priority Mail Flat Rate box is available in a variety of sizes and is always free," he said.
