It’s the end of January and that means that the US Postal Service has increased postage rates! The jump in rates is higher than last year, but sending mail is still a great deal.
Here are basic changes to first-class mail that started Sunday, January 26:
Letters (1oz.) — 3-cent increase to $.49
Letters additional ounces — 1 cent increase to $.21
Letters to all international destinations (1oz.) — $1.15
Postcards — 1-cent increase to $.34
Be sure to double check your package and Priority Mail rates too before sending. I use this page on USPS a lot when sending stamped mail!
