    I have heard it as both contiguous and continental, but if you mean to exclude Alaska then contiguous is more accurate. Here is the wiki page on CONUS.

    Ohhhhhh nooooooooooooo, NOT this subject again!

    It's always frustrating when folks THINK shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, & US territories is like shipping "overseas"...NOPE, same old US Post Office rules, regs, & prices apply to ALL 50 states & US territories!


    Please enjoy USPS.COM for your shipping questions & needs!!

    Anyway...my 2 cents...

    When I ship to Hawaii and Alaska on large packages using FedEx or UPS it cost more plus package seem to disappear more, USPS is all the same.
