Going out of town for the holidays? Don’t forget to put your mail on hold! The USPS now offers a quick and easy way to do this online. Just go to this page, enter your zip code, street address, the dates that you’ll be gone, and whether you want to pick up your accumulated mail at the post office or have it delivered to you when you return. With a few clicks, you’re set!
You can put mail on hold up to two weeks in advance, and unlike submitting a hold at the post office (which you must do at least the day before you leave) mail holds done through the website before 2 AM are effective that same buisness day.
Here’s to stress-free holiday travel!
