    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    omg...I just used my last 37 cent stamp. I can't keep up with all the price hikes on stamps...all my penny stamps are gone now also. I'm really glad I rarely use stamps.

    That is the perfect price for a stamp, they should never raise it unless risk the universe and everything collapsing or something.

    Typical gov't...

    Raise the prices, while the service continues a downward spiral.

    Our mail rarely makes it to our house by 5 pm, and isn't even delivered some days!

    Whatever happened to the old saying, "neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow..."???

    I still recall the days when the mail was delivered twice a day. And a stamp only cost about a dime!!!

    Now they can barely do it once a day and will be charging over 40 cents!

    Where's the sanity???

    Ugh... it looks like my husband is going to win the "snail mail vs pay bills online" debate afterall. I just bought a roll of stamps at Costco too.

    I work for a bank, and honestly, it's safer to pay online than have your checks with all of your personal information on them, floating around in the mail.

    Re: Postal Rates Going Up AGAIN

    I always laugh when people get irate over the price of a stamp. You can write a letter, fold it up and put it in an envelope, then have someone pick it up in front of your house and it gets delivered right to someone else's house clear across the country, and yet thirty seven cents, or forty, or even fifty is too expensive? To have something hand delivered across the entire country? That's funny.

    Re: Postal Rates Going Up AGAIN

    I seriously can't remember the last time I used a stamp! I usually pay my bills online, actually, all of them! But with the unnecessary increase in gas prices, regardless of multi-billion dollar QUARTERLY profits, the USPS has some increased operational costs, plus payroll, competition of email, online bill paying, etc... can't really fault them that much for increasing the price of the stamp!
    Three-time MVP Larry Bird, noting that Bryant has been the NBA's premier player for years, told Sports Illustrated's Dan Patrick before this week's announcement, "When someone told me the other day that Kobe hadn't won an MVP trophy, it sort of made me feel like I wanted to throw mine away."

    Re: Postal Rates Going Up AGAIN

    We don't mail too much stuff. A book of stamps will generally last us 2 months or more. (We are still using Valentine's stamps, and have about 1/2 the sheet left)

    I just don't like that it's .37, .42. Just make it .45 and be done with it.

    Yes, the Post Office is coming out with a "forever" stamp in May. There is no price showing and can be used forever, no matter how much the cost of postage increases. But, when you go to buy them, they will be sold at whatever the price of postage is at during that time.
