Yes I read that-whopee!
Nina Hollander, Broker
It was a positive item that all of the media broadcasted about so yes.
We were delighted by the news. A
Yes. Mrs. Lottie Kendall posted about that last week. I have several hundred "forever" stamps I paid more for
I did not know that. Interesting.
I heard that on the news. I overpaid for my roll of Forever stamps.
Did postcards change ?
REALLY?? Who knew? Now i do. :)
really? I had no idea!
Yes and I admit I was surprised. I don't remember having the postage rate drop. A nice surprise!
Good morning Jeff. When I read that was going to happen, I thought it was an April Fools joke.
I did. The last rate hike was a temporary approved measure when fuel costs sored. It was to raise X # of dollars and that amount has been met by the temporary rate hike.
Thanks for the news Jeff, it has been a while since I bought a roll of stamps.
Yes, glad I didn't buy a hundred of them
I do know that and that is a history making day.
Yes, I heard about this in February and I've been looking forward to it.
Yes, I incidentally checked postage for a letter to Germany yesterday and it came up with the new rate. Now, the question is, should I use up all those forever stamps I paid the old rate for or should I save them for when it goes back up?
I didn't know.... the postage machine needs to be adjusted....
I didn't know this. I think it's great to finally see some prices go down. Did Walmart buy the USPS?
That is a first!
And next year, they will raise the rates .04.
That's good news. I wish gas prices would not keep oing up and down. It seems that if the Post Office can be consistant with their prices, the gasoline industry could also. Can you imagine if the postage rates changed by 20% every other day?
Ugh! So now my .49 cent forever stamps are worth less. So much for hedging against inflation!
Wow that stinks for those of us who bought a lot of stamps.
NO, I had no idea. Thanks for spreading it out. I just bought a few books of stamps...
Bummer. I want a refund for the forever stamps I bought last year!
So all those "Forever Stamps" were a big rip off!
Jeff Dowler CRS Yes, I heard it on the news yesterday.
Isn't is amazing! I just wish they would have more postal employees and longer hours of business. I love our mail carrier and do appreciate the hard work and thoughtful delivery of our bulk mail packages. I just wish the actual post office was open in the evening so I could ship and receive packages faster.
Yep, and goddess bless the great USPS.
I did not, until I saw another question on this. Those darn "forever" stamps...
I did, I was at the post office dropping off my monthly Every Door Direct mailing and noticed a substantial savings. They announced the change a while ago I just assumed it would be an increase but was pleasantly surprised.
Funny, we always hear about the increases, but this is a first - a DECREASE!
I'm sure it will be temporary given the financial health of the USPS.
I saw this in news reports.
Thought they were operating at a deficit! Government work!
I knew it when I bought 200 stamps and the total was less than the last time I bought 200 stamps. What a nice surprise!
I did and that's why I waited an extra day to do my monthly mailing. Every penny counts at the end of the day!
What about post cards
I had not heard this. That's good.
bulk probably nada......
For how long , year end?
That's a good thing. Maybe its because people are not using a lot of snail mail anymore.
