Postage May Be Going Up In January 2017

The United States Postal Service has filed notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) of price changes for mailing services product to take effect in January 2017. The proposal includes a two cent increase in the price of a First-Class Mail Forever stamp, returning the price to .49 each which was the price of a Forever stamp before the USPS was required to remove the exigent surcharge by the PRC. This pricing strategy is designed to keep bills and statement in the mail by continuing to add value to commercial First-Class mail.

This may be a very good time to stock up on those Forever stamps before the first of the year.
