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.

The following delivery timeframes are based on information from internal and external research, and from utilizing a third-party organization to help us audit the current average delivery timeframes of USPS First-Class mail across the United States.

According to our in-depth research, a USPS First-Class letter is delivered within an average of 3-7 business days, or 6-8 calendar 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 within the same rough timeframe, however, if you requested a signature for Certified mail the process could take longer if no one is around to sign for the letter.

Keep in mind that we're unable to guarantee a specific delivery date. However, you can opt for faster processing on our end so that your mail is handed over to the USPS even sooner. For more information on that, click here.

We are also aware that some letters never arrive, albeit a small percentage.  We are also aware that some letters take much longer to arrive, especially since COVID-19 started.  That topic is discussed more here.
