Cost Of Postage Stamps To Rise

The US Postal Service (USPS) last week announced the cost of its “Forever” stamps would rise 5 cents on January 27th, from the current 50 cents to 55 cents.

The 10% spike in Forever stamps is the largest since 1996, a USPS spokesperson said.

Priority mail will also rise approximately 10%, the spokesperson said.

Small boxes that currently cost $7.20 will rise to $7.90 and a priority medium box that currently costs $13.65 will rise to $14.35.
