UPS Holiday Shipping Schedule 2009
UPS Ground Orders:
All UPS Ground orders placed on or before Wednesday, December 16th should arrive on or before December 24th. Please refer to the UPS ground map below for the shipping times, which are based on your geographic distance from Austin. Since UPS Ground orders ship out the following business day, and because deliveries are not made on weekends, any UPS Ground orders placed after the 16th need to be timed accordingly. For example, if your order is shipping to Kansas, you need to order on or before the 21st, while orders shipping to Upstate New York need to be placed on or before the 17th in order for it to arrive on or before the 24th.
Also, please note that while UPS is consistently accurate with the shipping time frames below, UPS Ground delivery times are not guaranteed. Unforeseen circumstances such as bad road conditions or other natural disasters may delay an order. Only air packages (UPS 3 day, 2 day, and Next day) provide guaranteed delivery dates. If you are concerned about the timing of your order, we encourage you to select a faster shipping method.
