are you even saving money? Might be better to put that in a savings account and get 1% or whatever you get.

I respect your opinion. Although I respectfully disagree. Good luck here at DP if that is how you are going to express yourself.

I barely use stamps, but I'm surprised that it's only going up by 1 penny.

Since my other options are Fedex/UPS (or driving it there), no complaints about the extra penny from me. Asking 0.46 to deliver a physical object 2000+ miles away is not unreasonable.

The price of a stamp should reflect the cost of delivering a letter. Who is going to deliver a letter across the country for less than .50.

Why do they just raise it a penny at a time, it would be better if they just raised them a dime or quarter and it would help there budget shortfall, nobody uses stamps hardly anymore with electronic bill pay and electronic receipt of your bills.

Agreed. Sounds like a good start anyway. My mail carrier who has done our route long before we moved here, seems to think a Tuesday or Saturday would be a great day to stop delivering mail.

Stamps go up and the mail slows down... ::SIGH:: If they stopped making all the collectable stamps they MIGHT make a profit. (IMO)

There is still a profit in the collectible stamp for the USPS. They budget out the volume of which stamp is to be printed in quantity.

There is still a mass volume of advertising material with businesses delivered, catalogues, magazines and package delivery. They are still in the game and more economical.

I wonder if this means they won't need to close any more post offices around the country.
