Letters do get delivered on Saturdays. Parcels do not.

Priority mail (A-Post) gets delivered on saturdays. Economy mail doesn't.

That's new to me - are you sure? Our post office says no parcels are delivered on Saturdays at all - even if they're A-Post. An exception would be the Express service. And we get economy letters on Saturdays...
