The Christmas Shipping Rush

Posted by EstateBooks on 10 December 2020

The holiday shopping season often creates anxiety about obtaining gift items with sufficent time to share with loved ones during get-togethers. The postal service recommends Media Mail (our standard option) be shipped by December 15th in order to arrive before the 25th. Our expidited options, First Class Mail (generally for softcovers) or Priority Mail should be shipped by the 18th or 19th respectivley. We plan to ship expidited items the same day if ordered before 4PM CT on the 18th or 11AM CT on Saturday the 19th. 

Of course this varies by location, for example mail to Hawaii will need to be expidited and sent by the 15th. These dates are estimates, and you may want to allow extra time if possible, particiularly if you are traveling to meet relatives. 

In terms of cost, the postal service did impose a temporary rate increase ending on the 27th, but this does not impact media mail, and does not alter our prices here on Alibris. All mail rates, including media mail rates, will increase starting Janurary 24th, 2021 and this may result in slight price increases on our lowest priced items. So even if you don't need an item by Christmas, there is no reason to delay on ordering, and it may make sense to stock up before the Janurary rates kick in.
