Heads up - another round of price increases are set to take place with some US Postal Service rates on August 29th. This is in advance of expected rate increases for both UPS and FedEx in October.
The 6.9% increase will impact what the USPS classifies as Market Dominant Products. This includes:
- Letter stamps (increasing to $0.58 from $0.55)
- Outbound international letters (increasing to $1.30 from $1.20)
Some products, such as Media Mail / Library Mail, will see price increases closer to 10.865%.
