We have received increased reports of customers experiencing delivery delays. The USPS is experiencing widespread delays due to COVID-19, high mail volume and other stressors. Magazines are being mailed every other Thursday. Normally, USPS takes 2 to 12 business days to deliver. However, many subscribers are experiencing additional delays.
