Update: Here we go again… Yet another stamp price increase.
It’s that time of year again… Stamp prices are on the rise. This time, stamps will climb from $0.39 to $0.41 on May 14th. Along with the price hike, they’re also going to be introducing the so-called ‘forever’ stamp, which I first wrote about nearly a year ago. The forever stamps are good forever, no matter what happens to prices in the future. In other words, you’ll no longer need those annoying two or three cent stamps to round up your postage to the going rate.
In the short term, don’t stock up on stamps that you won’t use up before mid-May… There’s nothing more annoying than having a giant roll of stamps that are a few cents short. Another option would be to hop on over to Stamps.com for a bunch of free postage.
