Postage rates will rise Jan. 22, 2012
In case you haven’t yet heard, postage rates are going up starting January 22, 2012. The cost of a first-class stamp will increase from the current forty-four cents, to forty-five cents. Consider stocking up on “Forever” stamps to save yourself a little money on postage once you run out of your current supply of first-class stamps.
“Forever” stamps were introduced back in 2007. They do not show a value on them so they are good for the cost of a one-ounce, first-class stamp “forever”, no matter the current postal rate.
In my opinion, impending postage rate hikes are usually not very well publicized, so I’m passing this information along as a sort of public service. Pennies count these days.
