Here is our best advice on selecting a shipping method that will achieve pre-Christmas delivery for parcels delivered to most US addresses. We ship from Laguna Woods CA 92637.
USPS First Class/Priority Mail - USPS First Class provides service at a price that allows us to include free shipping. However, as Christmas approaches, transit times grow a day or two longer. An upgrade to Priority Mail may well increase the likelihood of pre-Christmas delivery at moderate expense.
USPS Priority Mail Express - Priced a little higher than UPS 2nd Day service, USPS Priority Mail Express reaches most addresses overnight, but some may take two days. Reliability is very high, but not quite that of UPS air-expedited services.
UPS - For fast, highly reliable, date-definite delivery, UPS is the way to go, though speed comes at a cost. If you are shipping to a rural or remote area, we recommend that you visit the UPS website to confirm that normal transit times apply to your destination, or call us for assistance at 206-937-1515. Use 92637 as the "From" Zip Code.
