Postage savings

The United States Postal Service increased the price of stamps for first-class mail, single-piece letters from 46-cents to 49-cents on January 26. However, there are a couple of things you can do to save a little money now and in the future.

First, all metered first-class letters that are one ounce or less are 48-cents per mail piece, as opposed to 49-cents if you purchased a physical stamp. The postal clerks in Mail Services will be happy to stamp your mail using our postal meter so that you can experience this savings immediately.

Second, remember that if you purchase Forever/49-cent stamps, they are good to use at any time in the future, or forever, even when the USPS increases the cost of stamps again. Mail Services only purchases Forever stamps for resale so that any potential future savings can be passed on to our customers. Mail Services can keep you supplied with Forever stamps with  the daily limit for stamp purchases being two books, per person, per day. However, with advanced notice, Mail Services can order additional books of stamps to meet your needs.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 501.569.8699 or sdkaufman@ualr.edu.
