Received this email at work from Pitney Bowes.  Maybe this is nothing new, and I just never noticed before??

Ahead of the holiday season, the USPS has announced a temporary rate increase for commercial domestic competitive parcels. The new rates, which affect services such as commercial Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express packages, will be in effect from October 18 through December 27, 2020.

The new rates will be updated automatically in SendPro® Online and SendPro® Enterprise subscriptions, on all connected SendPro® and Connect+ sending devices and on meters using SmartLink.

Get all the details on the rate change and tips on sending smarter at Rate Change Central.

They raise their rates offer crappy service (at least 1 out of every 4-5 packages we ship end up broken because of their carelessness) and wonder why people use them less and less.

They understand that there is going to be a lot of increased shipping and had to get the money from where they can. I wonder if there going to cancel the guaranteed service?

That is a good idea. That gives a month to get it done and time to get the OE ornament on the tree earlier. Oh how I love this time of the year

Only problem is some GDers haven't even logged on for the season yet and won't be until we are well in to October...

I'll get the Secret Santa started this week, and make the deadlines earlier.  Probably not shipping by October 17, but earlier, LOL.  :holiday10

So, seriously, what do y'all think of a November 30 shipping deadline?  Is that too late?  I'd like to keep it after Black Friday, but what say you?

I think that’s a fair deadline. It allows everyone time to jump back in to the boards, a decent amount of shopping time, and hopefully enough shipping time.
