Now is not the time to procrastinate. Netither rain nor snow will stop mail delivery but neither will it stop the post office from raising the price of stamps on Monday May 11th. This takes the first-class-stamp from 42 cents up to 44 cents.
But one thing you may not have considered is that this increase also increases the price of the Forever Stamps. If you haven’t stocked up on them at 42 cents, this weekend is your last opportunity. Two cents may not seem like much but multiply it by the many letters you send out each year and it could amount to a hefty sum.
If you haven’t planned a trip to the post office today, you might want to make a detour there.
