Did You Know You Can Check Your Mail Before You Get Your Mail?
A poll of U.S. adults reveals that 41% of them say they look forward to checking their mail every day. Now, you won't even have to wait as long to check it!
Let's be honest, when it's not all bills and junk, getting mail can be pretty cool. And now, you'll know how exciting it will be before it even gets put in your mailbox.
It's a real thing. They call it "Informed Delivery" and it's available through the United States Post Office.
Informed Delivery allows you to view greyscale images of the exterior, address side of letter-sized mailpieces and track packages in one convenient location.
Essentially, it's a sneak peak of your mail that you can check on an app. No, you won't be able to read the letter from aunt Edith. It doesn't show you what's in the envelopes, but it will show you the outside of the envelope.
So if you're not a person who gets direct deposit of your tax refund and you're waiting for the check to come, you'll know that it's coming that day before it actually gets there. Birthday cards, letters from over seas, whatever it is that you're excited about, you'll be able to see if it's coming.
You have to get signed up for it though. So if you just can't wait for the mail to come, do it today!
