If you want to know what to expect in your mailbox before the mail even arrives, then the United States Postal Service has a new program just for you.
Informed Delivery offers a sneak peek of letters (but nothing boxed or bulky) sent straight to your inbox at 8 a.m. each morning, if you sign up online for the service.
Well, if you sign up for the service and also happen to live in parts New York, Virginia or Connecticut — the regions where the pilot program is currently rolling out.
While it's only the front of each envelope that will sent, according to the USPS website, Informed Delivery will enhance "the value of mail to consumers who are increasingly mobile and who value digital communications."
And as for senders of junk mail, aka advertisers, the USPS promises a boon for them, too, stating, "The service allows mailers increased access to today’s customers."
