Last minute holiday shipping deadlines

Last minute holiday shipping deadlines

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Christmas is this weekend, and for those not lucky enough to have gotten their packages in the mail, there is some hope to get gifts there in time, but you may have to pay a little more.

  • Dec. 19 is the deadline for UPS 3-day select service.
Some do's and don'ts to save time and money:

Do – Pay attention to deadlines.
Don't - Wait until the last minute, expedited shipping will cost you more.

Do - Ask questions, certain shipping methods could give you more bang for your buck, depending on the size and weight of your package.
Don't - Gift wrap the box, that's likely to get damaged in transit.

For those who are behind on their Christmas shopping, don't panic.

Most places will actually let people ship up until Dec. 23, but it's not guaranteed to get there in time for Christmas, and it will cost a lot more.
