Stamp Prices Increase Jan. 27: Information for your Next Trip to the Murrieta Post Office

But a new stamp will allow customers to mail letters anywhere in the world for $1.10.

Time to stock up on stamps before postage rates increase at the end of the month.

The cost of sending most letters and packages will jump slightly on Monday, Jan. 27 when the US Postal Service ups its rates to help cover the costs of delivering the mail.

Forever Stamps—the ones that remain good despite future postal rate increases—will increase to 46 cents. (Penny-pinching hint: Purchase a bunch of 45-cent Forever Stamps now.)

Here's a rundown of price increases:

  • Letters (1 oz.) — 1-cent increase to 46 cents
  • Letters additional ounces — unchanged at 20 cents
  • Letters to all international destinations (1 oz.) — $1.10
  • Postcards — 1-cent increase to 33 cents

The USPS will also introduce a new First-Class Mail Global Forever Stamp. The stamp allows people to mail letters anywhere in the world for $1.10.

In addition, several new shipping-service products will be available in January. Free tracking will be offered to all competitive packages, including retail Priority Mail and Parcel Post.

$44,292 yearly to start as a full time USPS employee. $21.29 per hour to start for part time USPS employees. For unskilled, no college needed jobs, this is a really high starting rate. That is why they are in debt and why your stamp prices are going up and up.
