Christmas is officially less than 2 weeks away. And here I am, 650+ miles away from a large portion of my friends and family. So, how can I ensure that my packages will arrive safely and on time at a price that isn’t going to break the bank?
This year, I’m choosing FedEx to take care of all my shipping needs. Why? Because I’m tired of standing in long lines at the post office only to find out that shipping charges have gone up – again.
This Holiday season, FedEx is offering us ways to save time and money with discounts that make them one of the cheapest options this December. By signing up for an account on fedex.com, you can save up to 16% on FedEx Express services as well as 8% on FedEx Ground and Home Delivery services. And if you visit a FedEx Office location, shipping with FedEx costs 10% less than the brown-truck guys.
Another great feature FedEx offers their clients is packing. If you’ve got a funky-shaped, awkward-sized, or extremely fragile item, or if you just don’t have the time to package your items at home, FedEx Office professionals can pack and ship your holiday packages for you. They can also give you tips on how to minimize the size and weight of a package to reduce your shipping costs. Just visit any of the FedEx Office locations nationwide.

Not only does FedEx offer cost-effective options for shipping, but you can also find customized holiday cards, stationery, and personalized 2010 calendars that you can get in just minutes either online or in store! And with FedEx Office Print Online services, you can print your holiday newsletters and cards and pick them up at a nearby FedEx Office location, or you can even have them delivered to your family and friends hassle-free.
This year, I know my packages will arrive quickly and on-time thanks to FedEx! Now, maybe I’d better start shopping……..
