Stamp Prices Increase One Cent This Month

The debut of the U.S. Postal Service's 46-cent Forever stamps brings rate changes on Jan. 27.

Stamp prices will increase one cent starting Jan. 27 to make way for the new 46-cent Forever stamp, according to an announcement from the U.S. Postal Service.

The price to mail a one-ounce letter will increase from 45 cents to 46 cents, but the cost for letters weighing more than one ounce will stay the same, at 20 cents for each additional ounce.

The announcement also states letters under one ounce mailed anywhere internationally will cost $1.10 and postcard stamps will go up one cent, from 32 cents to 33 cents.

Those looking to save a few cents can stock up on the postal service's Forever stamps (costing 45 cents until the one-cent increase on Jan. 27), which are usable even after stamp prices change.

The Post Office is in serious financial trouble. With the advent of email, evites, ecards and paying bills online they are basically "scrooood".
