The USPS is raising stamp prices in May, so stock up on your “Forever Stamps” before the hike. Starting May 11, the price for a first-class mail stamp will go from $0.42 to $0.44.
To ease the blow of postal rates going up two cents, the USPS is introducing a new stamp that will always pay the postal rate, no matter when you use it.
The Governors approved the Forever Stamp, which will sell at the new 41-cent First-Class Mail one-ounce letter rate. The value on these stamps will always be the one-ounce letter rate and can be used for any future one-ounce letter mailing without extra postage.
