USPS 1st class rates up again

Posted by bitguru on May 11, 2009

postal rate step chartMy blog entry on postal rate increases two years ago has been picking up a lot of hits, so I guess I should set the record straight. As of today, first class stamps are 44¢ and post cards are 28¢. This continues the recent pattern.

37¢ from June 30, 2002

39¢ from January 8, 2006

41¢ from May 14, 2007

42¢ from May 12, 2008

44¢ from May 11, 2009

(Additional ounces remain 17¢ each, up to the 3.5 oz. first-class letter limit.)
