Ask the Readers: Do You Still Send Snail Mail?

Editor's Note: Congratulations to Natasha, Jillian, and Eric for winning this week's contest!

For the most part, snail mail is becoming a thing of the past. Email and texting allows people to send and receive messages instantly, and it's easy and cheap to send cards and invitations electronically. Most businesses now offer online bill pay or automatic payments, so you don't even have to mail a check every month.

But receiving a handwritten letter or card can feel extra special, partly because it's so rare these days.

Do you still send snail mail? What kind of mail do you tend to send — or receive? Are there certain kinds of communications where you would prefer snail mail over email?

Tell us whether you still send snail mail and we'll enter you in a drawing to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card!
