2015 Holiday Shipping for Gift Cards, Merchandise and Memberships

It's that time of year again! 'Tis the Season for selling gifts cards, merchandise and membership cards as holiday gifts. For those of you doing holiday promotions, we wanted to make sure that you are aware of the Holiday Shipping Schedule from the US Post Office. 

For any of our clients that use the Agile Fulfillment services, we mail all items via First Class Mail. The last day to mail any items to ensure that they arrive by Christmas is Friday, December 18.  On that day, our Fulfillment center will process two fulfillment cycles. The first cycle will be at 9 AM CST and the second cycle will be at 2 PM CSTAny orders processed after 2PM CST on December 18th will go out the next business day through our regular fulfillment.

For those of our clients that process and do their own fulfillment in house, here is the Calendar that the US Post Office has on their website for mailing within the U.S.:
