The post card rate will also go up another cent.
Highlights of the increased prices for single-piece First Class Mail include:
- Letters (1 oz.) — 3-cent increase to 49 cents
- Letters additional ounces — 1-cent increase to 21 cents
- Letters to all international destinations (1 oz.) — $1.15
- Postcards — 1-cent increase to 34 cents
I don't use a huge number of stamps except for Christmas card mailings (which I did not do last year), but I like to keep a stock of stamps on hand for unforeseen needs. Therefore, I got myself to the post office to purchase a supply of Forever Stamps while they were still 46 cents.
While I was there, I was informed that all stamps are now Forever stamps, something I had not realized previously. Nice to know.
Do you plan to purchase postage stamps before the price jump?
