Most of us don't use "snail mail" as much as we used to, but don't forget, the price of a stamp has gone up yet again. The price of first-class stamps went up Sunday to 46-cents. Forever stamps bought at lower prices, of course, are still valid. Another change, postcards now cost 33-cents to mail.
The postal service now offers a "global forever stamp" for $1.10. It's good for first-class mail to anywhere in the world. The price for priority mail is increasing, but free tracking is now being offered.
