Postal Services Raises Prices Of First-Class Stamp By A Penny

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Love to snail mail? That letter might cost you an extra pretty penny.

Starting Monday, the postal service is raising the price of a first class stamp a penny – to 45 cents.

Even “Forever Stamps” will get the price hike, and postcards cost three cents more to send, at 32 cents.

However, “Forever Stamps” that were purchased before Sunday will not be affected by the rate change.
