If you want to be sure your holiday gifts arrive at their destination on time, today is one of the USPS deadlines for that guarantee.
USPS Ground packages need to be shipped by Dec. 14 for guaranteed delivery by Christmas Eve. Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express deadlines are just days away on Dec. 22.
Free Shipping Day
Also, today is free shipping day at several retailers across the nation.
The day was created more than a decade ago when stores joined together to offer the shipping incentive.
There is no minimum purchase and more than 1,000 retailers are expected to take part this year.
