Time to stock up on stamps before postage rates increase at the end of the month.

The cost of sending most letters and packages will jump slightly on Monday, Jan. 27 when the US Postal Service ups its rates to help cover the costs of delivering the mail.

Forever Stamps—the ones that remain good despite future postal rate increases—will increase to 46 cents. (Penny-pinching hint: Purchase a bunch of 45-cent Forever Stamps now.)

Here's a rundown of price increases:

  • Letters (1 oz.) — 1-cent increase to 46 cents
  • Letters additional ounces — unchanged at 20 cents
  • Letters to all international destinations (1 oz.) — $1.10
  • Postcards — 1-cent increase to 33 cents

The USPS will also introduce a new First-Class Mail Global Forever Stamp. The stamp allows people to mail letters anywhere in the world for $1.10.

Why is the Postal Service raising the price of stamps, again? Maybe it is because they foolishly give away money when they themselves are in the red? The postal service should stop squandering money on sponsorships for liars & druggies. That money should be used to run their business. Tell Lance to GIVE IT BACK – The entire 30 million!!!
