You can still buy the $0.41 lifetime stamps that the UPS will always accept though. Load up on those and never have to worry about a price increase again...

I remember when it was .19 They are raising it because everyone is doing online bill paying. I say everybody pay on line and see how long it takes to reach $4.29 per stamp. Silly govt.

yeah, just do the lifetime stamps. The problem I had with the increases was the 1/2 cent stamps always go out of stock and you get fucked having to put double postage just to have enough.

yeah I sold a part to someone in brazil and when he asked the shipping increase I said $1 would cover the international shipment. This has always been the case when I shipped to france, italy, canada, it has always cost me $6.95 for international priority mail. yesterday it was $11 to ship to brazil wtf?

I honestly cannot tell you the last time I had to use a stamp. There are a few times I used 2 old stamps (39c) to use them up. I pay everything thru my bank, and never pay postage.

between email and online bill pay how much personal stuff gets sent out that really effects a person these days? For the Christmas cards and occasional birthday card that is mailed who cares?

I am still trying to get rid of my .37 stamps. Have so many old stamps that I just use 2 on the rare occasions that I have to mail something.
