The PO has said they will stop Saturday mail delivery in August, 2013. It sounds like a good money saver to me. They will still deliver packages.

The truth is that we really don't know how much it costs to mail a letter here in the USA. We think it is the price of a postage stamp, but after the annual losses made up out of taxpayer money, the true cost could be many times the postage.
Excellent question. I had forgotten about that ploy.
First I heard about this. Those damn Republicans.
It is suggested that the reason is to drive the PO out of business so they can privatize it. Is that good or bad?
Not sure, but you can bet it would be expensive and all the workers would be part-time, no benefits, I'll bet...
Another corporation to scam us.
A privatized Postal Service would stop taking money from the tax payers to make up losses, and join the list of Corporations giving large campaign contributions for political favors. Which is worse? Maybe we should leave it alone.
There was a letter to the editor in this morning's (02/11/13) that asked the same question and pointed out also that the PO is the largest employer of returning veterans and goes where even UPS and FedEx do not..
An excellent point about the area they cover for delivery. Perhaps they just need to hire someone who understands business to run the operation.
Perhaps you might contact the companies that mail the bills to you and ask that they send them sooner?
That is an unusual circustance alright. Any chance of paying online to avoid the problem?
I've tried everythng. The companies won't send them early and are not online.
If the bills are always the same amount, it is fairly easy to set up auto-pay through your bank. I would not be all that concerned about paying any bill I received in the mail on the very day it was due. Pretty bad business for the company.
