submitted on September 30, 2010 by midget in "Member's Lounge"
Effective in January the cost to mail a letter will increase by 2¢. Making the cost to mail a standard letter to 46¢.

Other postage costs would rise as well.

The last increase was in July 2010.

    I switched to forever stamps long time ago. You can buy 100 pack at Costco for a small discount

      Yeah, the forever stamps are good but the cost of other mailings are increasing too. That's bad for people who sell on places like ebay, ioffer, and other online venues.

      It usually means that other services such as delivery confirmation, postal insurance and other things go up to.

    ok, it just came over AP that the postal commission has rejected this increase for now.

    Doesn't mean postage won't go up in the future but it looks like for now, the January increase is halted.

      That's good. It's definitely time to stock up on forever stamps.

      Wow happy to hear that. I just started selling on Ebay once in a while and it seems like shipping costs play a huge role in what you get for your item. Being new to it I don't know all the shipping options already and for prices to change...my head would explode lol.
