USPS to Raise Rates Twice a Year
The US Postal Service announced today it will raise rates for Market Dominant services (including the cost of a stamp, First Class Mail, and Media Mail) twice a year – each January and July.
In what appears to be an effort to take the sting out of the bad news, the USPS said it would skip the increase this coming January.
The USPS did not mention a schedule for raising the rates of Competitive services (including Priority Mail).
The USPS filed a detailed notice with the PRC, which you can read on the PRC.gov website.
