Price of Stamps to Increase January 2014 - Stock up on Forever Stamps!
You might want to stock up on "Forever" stamps again as postage rates are ging up later this month.
The 2014 postage increase will take effect on January 26, 2014 and will raise the cost of stamps as follows:
Letter Postage will be 49 cents for a 1 ounce letter. Any additional ounce will be an additional 21 cents.
Postcards: Sending a postcard will be 34 cents.
International Mail: A letter sent overseas will be $1.15 for one ounce.
Buying "Forever" stamps before the new postal rates take effect lets you buy stamps at the current rate and you can use them "forever" regardless of what the actual price of postage will be in the future.
Since first class letter postage will go up by 3 cents, you will save $3.00 when you buy a roll of "Forever" stamps.
