The Cheapest Way To Ship Gifts To Arrive By Christmas Eve

It's getting down to the wire and many people have yet to ship their gifts to loved ones. WTOP found the cheapest way to get packages to their destination by Christmas Eve.

Quoting a box shipping from D.C. to L.A., we compared three shipping carriers. The U.S. Postal Service is the cheapest.

The caveat -- the package must be sent by Tuesday to get the USPS' best rate using standard shipping.

Sending a 5 pound box will cost $14.20. A 10 pound box will cost $24.46. However, it is too late to use the USPS online shipping option and get it there in time using standard shipping.
