Biggest Postal Hike Ever!

File under: "There is no price inflation."

The price of a first-class Forever Stamp went up a nickel Sunday, from 50 cents to 55 cents. That 10 percent increase is the largest single price jump in the history of the U.S. Postal Service.

The price to mail a small box also rose from $7.20 to $7.90; a medium box increases from $13.65 to $14.35.



  1. I'm sure it's all going to pensions.

  2. It was even worse for small business customers who us the USPS for shipping small items as "First Class Packages" because they went from a flat rate to a rate by region. Shipping a 4 oz or less first class package from the west coast to the east coast went from $2.66 to $3.04!!
