USPS Postage Increase 1/27
« on: January 08, 2019, 08:32:49 PM »
If you're like me and buy most of your pony stuff online, you may want to splurge that last bit of Christmas cash before the rates go up.
Here's the list of everything, but I think the most notable increases are:
  • Stamps will go up by $.05 at post office rate, although additional ounces will decrease $.06 to be an extra $.15
  • Priority mail will increase by about 5.9%
  • First Class packages will have zone-based pricing rather than a flat rate (nooo)
  • Parcel Select Ground rates will actually decrease by about 1.3%
I believe International rates will increase as well, but all I could find is that International letters will remain at $1.15. Good news if you write letters!

This is pretty sad cause most of us are not getting a raise or get next to nothing! This is a sign that I need to not be buying so much stuff anymore!

Its so sad that everything is going up. Its going to only get worst! :(
