    I know the media rate is going to change...and I believe the parcel post...but I don't think the first class (1st ounce) and priority are changing at this time.

    Here's the link:

    Glad to see it is not going up until Tuesday Apr 17th - because I believe that tomorrow is the last day to mail your taxes in

    the 1st class is not going up at this time. It is the everything over the 1st class that is going up on the oz over the 1st class. Just another sneaky way to get people to pay more postage. Monday April 18th is the final day to mail your taxes in. sunday is the 17th.

    That really stinks--got postage rates for THREE big pkgs... on Fri. and Sat.
    No one said rates were going up---had to get the PP rate to get paid via Paypal before I mailed them. Now I am MAD!Suppose I will have to absorb the difference and these are PIFS---GRRRR.

    I just paid $25.00 postage for 4 kilos of fabric (8.8 pounds). Postage here is pretty expensive for parcels anyway.

    A regular stamp is not going up. The second and additional ounces are changing from .17 to .20 each. And the postcard rate is raising a penny to .29 . The flat rate bpoxes are staying the same I believe.

    The big change, which will affect some of us who do mail packages or big envelopes, is that first class 1 oz is 44 but each ounce after that will be 20 instead of the former 17. Flat rate boxes will stay the same. Not sure about the media mail, I think that rate is also increasing. I will google and see if there is some more going on that affects those of us who do mail items.

    Every time the postage goes up, I need to make up a little chart to post up by my desk. I don't know why the post office website doesn't have an easy to print out chart like this. It seems like it should be something that they would naturally make available. Just so you won't need to go through the trouble of make a chart of your own, I'm posting the one I made here for you to use.

    Chart as a "gif" file.

    Thank you so much! That is very helpful...I always have to go to usps to look up rates, so this will save more lots of time.
