You can lock in the price for
Christmases to come by
stocking up on ‘forever’
MIDDLETOWN – Effective in January, the price of a First Class postage stamp will increase by a nickel from 50 cents to 55 cents.
The US Postal Service calls it an “adjustment” in the price.
There is a bright side to mailing your bills and other letters. The post office sells “forever” stamps that have no price printed on them and that means a future savings, said area postal service spokesman George Flood.
“The price you pay now, that stamp will be good forever for a First Class one-ounce letter, so if you buy them now you will save some money next year,” Flood said.
The postal service has been losing money in recent years as more and
more people are using email to communicate and online bill paying instead
of using the post office.
