The cash strapped US Postal Service has been looking for ways to bring in money and they’re about to test out same day package delivery.

The Postal Service is betting you don’t want to put up that. So, they’re teaming up with at least eight major retailers and on December 12th, will begin same day delivery service in San Francisco.

If it goes well, the program will quickly expand next year to other cities such as Boston, Chicago and New York.

Consumers can order online and have an item in their hands by dinner time.

The Post Office will compete with similar efforts by eBay, Amazon and now Wal-Mart which is charging $10 for same day delivery.
