Stamp Prices to Rise 1 Cent This Month

U.S. Postal Service rates are set to change on Jan. 27.

Stamp Prices to Rise 1 Cent This Month

The cost to mail a letter will rise slightly later this month when postal-rate changes go into effect, according to the U.S. Postal Service.

Stamp prices will increase 1 cent, from 45 cents to 46 cents, to mail 1-ounce letters, effective Jan. 27. The cost for letters weighing more than 1 ounce will stay the same, at 20 cents for each additional ounce, according to an announcement from the postal service.

Postcard stamps will also see a one-cent increase, from 32 cents to 33 cents. Letters under 1 ounce mailed anywhere internationally will cost $1.10, the announcement states.

Those looking to save a few cents could stock up on the postal service's Forever stamps (costing 45 cents until the one-cent increase on Jan. 27), which are usable even after stamp prices change.

Pick up your Forever stamps at the New Rochelle Post Office at Huguenot Street and North Avenue soon.
