The U.S. Postal Service is offering a discount on its largest largest Priority Mail Flat Rate box for families and friends of U.S. military personnel.

USPS said in a press release that the recommended mailing date for those who want to get gifts to service members by the start of the holiday season should plan to mail them by Nov. 13.

Flat rate boxes are free at any Post Office, and postage, labels and customs forms can be printed online using Click-N-Ship.
