Time To Stock Up On Forever Stamps

On May 12, the cost of a First-Class stamp will increase from 41 to 42 cents.

Tataas din ang presyo ng ibang mailing services, such as Standard Mail, Periodicals, Package Services (including single-piece Parcel Post), and Special Services.

Before May 12, you can save some money by buying Forever stamps.

Last year, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) issued the Forever stamp, which will always be valid as First-Class postage on standard envelopes weighing one ounce or less, regardless of any subsequent increases in the First-Class rate.

“The Postal Service developed the Forever Stamp for consumers to ease the transition during price changes,” said Postmaster General John Potter of the USPS. “We encourage Americans to buy Forever Stamps now for 41 cents, because like the name suggests, they are good forever.”

When the price goes up to 42 cents on May 12, all Forever stamps bought at 41 cents will still (and forever, naks) be valid.
