  •  It's not even fully cutting Saturday service (1+ / 0-)

    It's cutting 1st class home delivery. Parcel delivery on Saturday is not being cut. The vast majority of Americans won't even notice a difference between 6 day delivery and 5 day delivery of 1st class mail.

    •  so is that a good (0+ / 0-)

      place to cut service or not?

      and cutting 1st class delivery means what? no priority overnight? the PO never guaranteed overnight anyway (at least as far as i remember).

      •  Parcel delivery will be unaffected (0+ / 0-)

        Priority as well. It is standard 1st class delivery (i.e. mail you put a stamp on and bulk mail) that will be delivered 5 days instead of 6.

        And the PO does offer guaranteed overnight or you get a refund, but you have to have it postmarked before a certain time and there are other exceptions such as if it has to go to a remote location.
