Next Monday, May 11th, the price for a first class postage stamp is going to increase from 42 cents to 44 cents. Prior to that time you can purchase as many of the above Forever Stamps at the 42 cent rate and they will be good for as long as you have them, regardless of what the postage rate for a first class stamp is raised to in the future.

I posted about this on February 20th here when this rate increase was first announced. I will be buying more of these stamps this week at the 42 cent rate. I still have over 100 I purchased when they raised the rate from 41 cents to 42 cents so I'll be saving 3 cents every time I have to use those 100 stamps.

"Watch your pennies and your dollars will take care of themselves!!!

Something my father taught me at a very early age. I'd delighted to watch the pennies I save on purchasing these Forever Stamps.

You have 5 days left to make this purchase.


  1. Thanks for the reminder - I'll have to pick some up!

  2. Thanks so much for the reminder!
    I'll get on this.


  3. Thanks so much for the reminder! I forgot the time for the change was this soon. I found out about these stamps from you in the first place and went and got some, but now I want to get more.

  4. Paying more for stamps is something that really irks me, thanks for the reminder:)
