The USPS is suspending Priority Mail Express guarantee between December 22 through 25, citing increased volume and weather conditions during the holidays. It also cited policies of its “competitors” who the Postal Service said likewise adjust their refund policies during the holidays.
In Monday’s alert to shippers, the USPS stated:
“During the holidays, increased volume and weather conditions may affect the ability to transport all Priority Mail Express™ one-day shipments. Similar to our competitors, the Postal Service has an adjusted postage refund policy for Priority Mail Express™ sent during December 22 through 25. While the Postal Service fully expects Priority Mail Express™ to remain one-day where available, postage will not be refunded unless the first delivery attempt or delivery occurs more than two delivery days after the Acceptance scan event.”
