USPS Christmas Mail

"You can put off Christmas shopping, but you can't put off Christmas." That's the message on this 1989 USPS postcard addressed to "POSTAL CUSTOMER."

I have USPS Christmas advertising postcards dated 1986, 1987, 1988, and 1989 plus several undated ones. I hadn't seen any Christmas cards from the USPS in recent years. Then a new one arrived in my mail yesterday for "Holiday 2006."

Rates for 1989:
Priority Mail: 2-day delivery between major markets and 3-day delivery everywhere else, at just $2.40 for up to 2 pounds.
Express Mail: Overnight service, at $8.75 for up to 8 ounces, and $12 for 2 pounds.

Rates for 2006:
Priority Mail: 2-day delivery in most cases, from $4.05.
Express Mail: Overnight delivery to most U.S. cities, from $14.40.

The new 2006 card also advertises Global Priority Mail, Global Express Mail, and Global Express Guaranteed services. You are invited to visit for more shipping tips.
