    Talking The Stamps

    Postage stamps price increases today

    May 11, 2009

    The cost of a first-class mail stamp will increase two cents to 44 cents beginning today.

    The price of a postcard stamp will increase 1 cent to 28 cents, the first ounce of a large envelope will increase 5 cents to 88 cents and the first ounce of a parcel will increase 5 cents to $1.22.

    There will be no change to the cost of an additional ounce of first-class mail, which will remain at 17 cents, while the cost of a postcard will rise by a penny to 29 cents.

    Despite the rise in the cost of a first-class stamp, Forever Stamps can still be used -- without a 2-cent stamp being added -- no matter when they were purchased.

    The increase in the price of a first-class mail stamp will represent an additional $3 to the average household over the course of the year, according to Postmaster General John Potter.

    The increases were approved by the governors of the U.S. Postal Service Feb. 10 and are the result of rising operational costs and are in line with the amount of inflation, Potter said.

    “The Postal Service is not immune to rising costs, which are affecting homes and businesses across America today,” Potter said. “Even with the increases, the Postal Service continues to offer some of the lowest postage prices in the world.”
