We are members of Escapees and they have a superb mail forwarding service. We have CHANGED our address to Rainbow Drive, Livingston TX and have them send the mail on to us where ever we happen to be as often as we choose. They will send it any way we want , but we usually use Priorty Mail and it usually arrives within two days of being sent. It is a simple email or phone call a day ahead to get it sent (call Mon to have it sent on Tues). We pay a flat fee plus cost of membership plus whatever the postage is. WE do pay extra to have them dump third class mail rather than pay cost of forwarding it. Year 3 and couldn't be happier. When we are at home base we just have them send the mail on there once a week, no need to contact them weekly.

I haven't read all the posts here in detail so I hope I'm not covering the same ground.

We've been goin to Fl for 6 years in the winter. In all those times USPS says forwarding or holding is only good for 30 days. A call to our local PO has always said no problem, just let us know when you get home.

This year USPS has made some changes. There is some service that will forward your mail. It was going to cost almost $300 for 19 weeks. After further investigation, I found an option that if you are moving, but may move back within 1 year it was free.

We get too many magazines to call. What a PITA that would be trying to reach them all. I would much rather have it delivered to the house and let our daughter send us anything important.

A woman on another Forum swears she does a temporary change of address and they forward all her mail including magazines for the 4 months she spends at her son's place in PA.

I think I need to call my PO and see if I can get some information, or go there in person.

Magazines are really easy to deal with today. Stack them up next to the computer and go to the subscription page on each magazine site and enter the change of address. Once you have done this once you can save a list of the urls to get directly to each and quickly enter the address change. Of course more and more magazines are available online so you can just let the dead tree version pile up at home and read them online.

USPS will not forward magazines or apply temporary change of address to them for more 30 to 60 days, just first class mail. Ask me how I know!

This is to complicated, that is why all my magazines and other regular mail goes through my Escapee PMB in Livingston TX. My next step is to make that my legal residence.

Post office will temporarily forward all First Class mail, magazines and packages for 6 months. Packages will be sent postage due. You have an option to extend that to 12 months. All for no charge.
