    Hello Everyone,

    I was just wondering if anyone knows when you send a postcard or letter to someone on how long does it take for them to recieve it in the USA?
    How many days? I sented a friend of mine a birthday card in the mail today.
    I'm from New York and she's from Atlanta, GA. Her birthday is this Saturday. Will she recieve it before then or right on her birthday do you think?
    Thanks in advance :)

    3 days or so? That means she may not get it on her birthday it can actually arrive to her late? It's this Saturday coming..
    aaww, I should've sented it out sooner, I wasn't thinking..
    Does the day you send mail out count as day 1? Like, since I sented it today, would today count as 1 day, then tomorrow 2 days so forth? Or actually would tomorrow count as day 1?:confused:

    If you mailed it this afternoon (& it got picked up today), it should get to her by Saturday. You might want to call & wish her happy birthday on Saturday just in case. :)

    I think it got picked up this afternoon. I didn't actually put it in my mail box, I went to the P.O last night & put it in their big blue box thinking that it might get sented out sooner today in their box then it would mine.
    Thankyou, I'll call her just incase:)
