Postage Rates To Rise On Jan. 27
What does the U.S. Post Office price increase mean to you?
First-class postage stamps will rise by one cent -- from 45 to 46 cents. Shipping packages with Priority Mail will be going up too, anywhere from 45 cents to as much as $1.40 per box.
Years ago, we might have rushed out to the post office to buy one-cent stamps or Forever stamps or using up the old stamps before the price jump.
But nowadays you can pay your bills online and send electronic greeting cards, so do you even need to mail anything anymore?
