USPS Price Changes (46¢ Stamps, 33¢ Postcards)

If you are a frequent letter/postcard sender, you’ll want to take note of the United States Postal Service changes that are set to take place on January 27th, 2013. On this date, the price of Forever Stamps will increase from 45¢ per stamp to 46¢ per stamp. In addition, you can expect the following changes…

* Postcards: Increase to 33¢ (1¢ increase)
* Letters to other international destinations: Increase to $1.10 (5¢ increase)

Check out this news release for more information. If you are running low on stamps, I would encourage you to head to your local Post Office this week to snatch up several books of Forever Stamps since you will save yourself 1¢ per stamp. A penny saved is a penny earned.

Is it me or are they constantly increasing postage rates more and more? I did find out they offer "forever stamps" no that do not expire. I purchased some and recommend them;)

I love forever stamps! The trick is to make sure the kids don't get ahold of them ("stickers") ;)
