The United States Postal Service’s (USPS) rates have undergone some major changes in the past 12 months, and it looks like the changes will continue into 2020. USPS has recently filed a notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) to have several changes in rate prices. If the notice is approved, the changes would take effect on January 26, 2020.
The changes being proposed are related to the Consumer Price Index and adjustments related to market conditions. Price changes related to Mailing Services by around 1.9%. Also, Shipping Services will increase, but the changes will vary based on the product or service.
Should the PRC approve the price changes, there are certain elements that would have no increases in the price: First-Class Mail Forever stamp, additional ounce prices for single-piece, and postcard stamp prices, and 1-ounce flats.
