Update April 10, 2013: The Post Office will still deliver mail on Saturdays. Learn more.
Starting in August, the U.S. Postal Service will no longer deliver first-class mail on Saturdays. First-class mail includes bills, catalogs, letters, cards and other general correspondence.
Packages and express mail will still be delivered Saturdays.
Mail will still be delivered to post office boxes on Saturdays, and Post Office locations currently open on Saturdays will remain open.
The change in service is expected to save the Postal Service $2 billion dollars annually.
The Postal Service is an independent government agency and does not receive tax money to support its operations. It relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
