So, I sent out my first mailer at the end of April and this is what I learned: USPS standard mail can take upwards of 3 weeks to be delivered.
Standard mail is another name for bulk mail, and USPS indicates that standard mail will “typically be delivered in under 5 business days locally, but nationwide it could take 2 to 3 weeks” because it “is delivered on a time-available basis”. Offers2Owners has a similar statement on delivery times on their FAQ page.
Beginner Tip: When determining your purchase agreement deadline, take into account that your mailer may take 2 to 3 weeks to be delivered. Therefore, consider pushing the deadline out 45 to 60 days, as opposed to 30.
The good news: Since Offers2Owners is based in Arizona, any Arizona offers will likely arrive in under a week. (But I’m still waiting for my Colorado offers to show up 2 weeks later. Ha.)
The other good news: Offers2Owners is a great deal compared to other printing/mailing operations — just be sure to take the bulk mail delivery time into consideration.
