You’ve got mail (but not on Saturdays): USPS cutting back delivery schedule

USPS will announce today the ending of Saturday first class mail by August, @cbsthismorning reports exclusively.

The failing United States Postal Service will announce today that Saturday delivery of first-class mail will be eliminated in August for a predicted annual savings of $2 billion, a fraction of what the USPS lost in 2012.

Why does the postal service say it’s so cash-strapped? In the past, it’s been blamed on you darn kids and your Internets. (And also the recession, but mostly, get off the USPS’ lawn, whippersnappers.)

Packages will still be delivered on Saturdays.

AP: USPS plans to stop mail delivery on Saturdays starting in Aug. Will still deliver packages. Cost savings: $2 billion.

Update:

Netflix customers are already making plans.

USPS is stopping mail on Saturdays which means 1-2 less movies from Netflix for me each month

The USPS has just announced no more Saturday mail service, starting in August. Begin adjusting your Netflix queue schedules accordingly.

Well now that USPS is ending mail on Saturdays, I’ll have to order my @netflix disc a day earlier

But some people are OK with the news.

What am I going to do without my random three pieces of junk mail that I get every Saturday?#USPS

Yay, no more bills delivered on Saturday !!!#USPS

Prolly in the minority but I’ve been wanting the broke USPS to cut Saturday mail for ages. One less day to open my mailbox to find bills.

No need for Saturday mail. Hell, no need for Tuesday and Thursday mail.
