It's that time of year... everyone's least favorite holiday tradition except for Aunt Ida's fruit cake... the US Postal Service has announced its annual holiday pricing increase.
Here's what will happen:
▪ Beginning October 1, Twisted's threshold for free shipping will go up to $75. (That's in 2 weeks!)
▪ This was a hard decision that we've resisted for years, but with postage rates going up yet again we had to adapt.
▪ On October 3, the postal service will raise their rates for all services. The increases range from $0.25 to $5.00 per package. These rates will be in place until at least December 26th. We don't know what will happen after that. Some years rates drop back; some years the increases become permanent.
▪ The shipping rates offered on our site come directly from the USPS based on a package's estimated weight and will go up accordingly.
