Stamp Prices to Rise This Month

U.S. Postal Service rates are set to change by one cent on a First Class letter on Jan. 27.

The cost to mail a letter will rise slightly later this month when postal-rate changes go into effect, according to the U.S. Postal Service.

Stamp prices will increase by one cent -- from 45 cents to 46 cents -- to mail one-ounce letters, effective Jan. 27.

The cost for letters weighing more than one ounce will stay the same, at 20 cents for each additional ounce, an announcement from the postal service says.

Postcard stamps will see a one-cent increase, from 32 cents to 33 cents. Letters under one ounce mailed anywhere internationally will cost $1.10, the announcement says.

Those looking to save a few cents could stock up on the postal service's Forever stamps (costing 45 cents until the one-cent increase on Jan. 27), which are usable even after stamp prices change.

Buy stamps locally at the Barrington Post Office on Middle Highway.

The post office is on it's last legs . The more they raise the price the more people will use online services. Like the buggy whip
