Mailing Services Prices Effective Monday, May 11, 2009

"On May 11 the price for a 1-ounce First-Class Mail stamp will increase from 42¢ to 44¢. Prices for other mailing services — Standard Mail, Periodicals, Package Services (including Parcel Post), and Extra Services — will also change."

"Prices for mailing services will continue to adjust each May. Prices for most shipping services, including Express Mail and Priority Mail, were adjusted in January and will not change in May."

More info here.

Now would be a good time to buy some of those Forever stamps.

I wonder what the significance is that the rates go up just after Mother's Day, but before Father's Day?

Large envelopes – first ounce $0.88
Parcels – first ounce $1.22
