The U.S. Postal Service and shipping giants FedEx and UPS are out with their holiday season deadlines and they are earlier than usual this year.
The Postal Service says cards and packages going First-Class need to be in the mail by December 18th for delivery before Christmas and Priority Mail Express needs to go out by December 23rd.

UPS deadlines begin on December 14th for Ground, and run to the 23rd for Next Day Air.

At FedEx, the first deadline, for SmartPost is December 9th, and the last is December 25th for SameDay, SameDay City Direct, and SameDay City Priority.
