Can I still buy a Christmas gift online?

While the standard USPS Christmas delivery time has already passed, the UPS option has not. UPS still has its three-day service available through Tuesday.

TOLEDO, Ohio — If you’ve been shopping this weekend and wondering what your options are for shipping your gifts, time is running out. However, there are still a few options that won’t cost you too much.

While the standard USPS Christmas delivery time has already passed, the UPS option has not. UPS still has its three-day service available through Tuesday.

USPS and UPS both have expedited and overnight options available for a higher cost later this week.

But what are the chances that your package will arrive on time?

UPS representatives said Monday that 96% of their packages are arriving when expected and customers should feel confident with the quoted delivery times.

“It has been very, very busy and we still expect it to be high season. But the UPS network is working well and our employees around the world are delivering for the holidays,” said Jim Meyer of UPS.

Compared to last holiday season, many transportation services have hired thousands of workers to keep up with demand this time around.

If you plan to ship packages this week, be prepared to wait in line.

“One thing you can actually do is have your package ready to go ahead of time, by create your shipment online“, said Meyer.
