Shipping via the U.S. Postal Service will cost more in the new year.
USPS filed a notice this week with the Postal Regulatory Commission it will raise prices for shopping services starting Jan. 21. The mail service had previously announced stamp prices would increase on that day, rising from 66 cents to 68 cents for Forever Stamps.
“The Postal Service continues to offer a great value in shipping. Unlike some other shippers, the Postal Service has upfront pricing and does not add surcharges for residential and regular Saturday delivery or fuel. Also, the Postal Service offers convenient flat rate and cubic pricing options,” USPS said in a statement.
