Postage Prices Going Up Next Week

U.S. Postal Service rates are set to change Sunday.

Mailing a letter will cost you a penny more starting Sunday as the U.S. Postal Service rate changes go into effect.

Stamp prices will increase one cent, from 45 cents to 46 cents, to mail one-ounce letters. The cost for letters weighing more than one ounce will remain the same - 20 cents for each additional ounce.

Postcard stamps will also see a one-cent increase, from 32 cents to 33 cents. Letters under one ounce mailed anywhere internationally will cost $1.10.

Those looking to save a bit could stock up on the Forever stamps (which cost 45 cents until the one-cent increase on Jan. 27). These are usable even after stamp prices increase.

The postal service has LESS mail to deliver, but prices are going up? Why?

Simple. Salaries,retirees and benefits but not to worry about the USPS going out of business. Last year they delivered 84 billion pieces of junk mail and just recently signed a contract with a direct mailing marketer to make it 125 billion pieces this year. Oh boy.
