USPS Delivery Timeframes

Note:  First class mail does not include tracking information.  If you need to track your letters, you'll need to send them via Certified mail.

A USPS First-Class letter should be delivered within 3 - 7 business days.  A business day is considered Monday through Friday, not counting postal holidays.  

Certified Mail is an added service to First-Class mail and should arrive at the destination in 3 - 5 business days as well.  However, if you requested a signature, the process could take longer if no one is around to accept the letter.

Keep in mind that the USPS does not offer service guarantees on First-Class or Certified letters.  We are aware that some letters never arrive, albeit an extremely small percentage.  We are also aware that some letters take much longer than 3 - 5 days to arrive, especially since COVID-19 started.  That topic is discussed more here.
