Several Postal Service price changes will take effect July 9.
Here’s a list of the current and new prices:
• Letters (1 ounce): 63 cents (current), 66 cents (new)
• Letters (metered 1 ounce): 60 cents (current), 63 cents (new)
• Domestic postcards: 48 cents (current), 51 cents (new)
• International postcards: $1.45 (current), $1.50 (new)
• International letters (1 ounce): $1.45 (current), $1.50 (new)
The single-piece letter and flat additional-ounce price remains unchanged at 24 cents.
The changes will raise First-Class Mail prices approximately 5.4 percent.
The Postal Service will also implement pricing adjustments for Special Services products, including Certified Mail, Post Office Box rental fees, money order fees and the cost to purchase insurance when mailing an item.
The price adjustments are needed to provide the organization with much-needed revenue to achieve the financial stability sought by its Delivering for America 10-year plan.
The Postal Service’s prices remain among the most affordable in the world.
USPS announced the price changes in April.
The Postal Explorer website has the price change tables.
