are you even saving money?
Might be better to put that in a savings account and get 1% or whatever you get.

I respect your opinion. Although I respectfully disagree. Good luck here at DP if that is how you are going to express yourself.

I barely use stamps, but I'm surprised that it's only going up by 1 penny.
MrBklynW Oct 13, 2012
damn the stamps are going up again..ahhh

Since my other options are Fedex/UPS (or driving it there), no complaints about the extra penny from me. Asking 0.46 to deliver a physical object 2000+ miles away is not unreasonable.

The price of a stamp should reflect the cost of delivering a letter. Who is going to deliver a letter across the country for less than .50.

you hit the nail on the head,people just don't think clearly at times.

Why do they just raise it a penny at a time, it would be better if they just raised them a dime or quarter and it would help there budget shortfall, nobody uses stamps hardly anymore with electronic bill pay and electronic receipt of your bills.

USPS needs to go to 5 day work weeks....
branie Oct 14, 2012
Agreed. Sounds like a good start anyway. My mail carrier who has done our route long before we moved here, seems to think a Tuesday or Saturday would be a great day to stop delivering mail.

Stamps go up and the mail slows down... :SIGH: If they stopped making all the collectable stamps they MIGHT make a profit. (IMO)

There is still a profit in the collectible stamp for the USPS. They budget out the volume of which stamp is to be printed in quantity.

Why am I not surprised? With email, I wonder how they stay in business now!
tnglm003 Oct 14, 2012
There is still a mass volume of advertising material with businesses delivered, catalogues, magazines and package delivery. They are still in the game and more economical.
shimisi Oct 12, 2012
I wonder if this means they won't need to close any more post offices around the country.

This is not a surprise at all. Surprise to me it is only a penny. I thought for sure it would have been more as the USPS is in trouble. Oh well buy those forever stamps.
