In Latest Rate Hike, USPS Raises Stamp Prices to 66 Cents

Postage rates have increased 32 percent in four years

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) once again is raising mail prices for most users, pushing the cost of a first-class stamp from 63 cents to 66 cents.

The new rates, which cover other mail items including periodicals and advertising mailers, are poised to take effect July 9 unless overruled by the postal regulator.

The 5.4 percent increase across all first-class mail products is the agency’s fourth rate hike in two years. It also brings first-class mail costs up 32 percent since 2019, when a stamp ran 50 cents.
