U.S. Postal Rates to Increase in January

The cost of sending a letter in the United States will increase a penny, to 46 cents, as of January 27, according to the U.S. Postal Service. Postcard stamps will also go up one cent to 33 cents. Rates will also increase for Priority Mail and other services (including the cost of mailing magazines), subject to final approval by the Postal Regulatory Commission. The Postal Service will also be introducing a "forever stamp" for international postage, at a new rate of $1.10/ounce for all overseas destinations. For more information, see <>.
