I'm seeing about a day extra for most of my USPS 1st Class packages.

On the plus side, my Priority Mail packages are about a day faster. :D

My experience it all depends on which post office u drop off ur package. Smaller ones causes delays bigger ones and your item is shipped same day.

I guess it really depends on where you live and where it's being delivered. I haven't noticed too much of a difference with my First Class packages except for an extra day or so there (I ship about 30+ a day). I live in CA and even some packages I have shipped recently to the East coast have arrived in 3-4 business days. (Normal before the holidays is about 3 for me)
