Increase in Stamp Prices Comming

The price of a first-class letter stamp will rise by 3 cents on January 26, 2014 to 49 cents.  This stamp price increase is considered to be "temporary" by the Postal Regulatory Commission which rejected the Postal Service's request for a permanent increase.  The increase to 49 cents for a first-class letter will be in effect for two years.  
In addition to first-class mail, higher rates will also apply to magazines, newspapers, advertising mail and bills.
