UPS sent out a letter last month saying that their shipping would increase 4% and now the USPS is doing it too!
41 cent stamps will go up to 42 cents.
While the charge for the first ounce of a first-class letter rises to 42 cents, the price of each added ounce will remain 17 cents, so a two-ounce letter will go up a penny to 59 cents.
The cost to mail a post card will also go up a penny, to 27 cents
Other increases set for May 12:
— Large envelope, 2 ounces, $1, up 3 cents.
— Money Orders up to $500, $1.05, unchanged.
— Certified mail, $2.70, up 5 cents.
— First-class international letter to Canada or Mexico, 72 cents, up 3 cents.
— First-class international letter to other countries, 94 cents, up 4 cents.
