New USPS® mailing and shipping pricing in 2023

by Jane Ahrens

The USPS new pricing for next year affects the First-Class stamp, metered mail rates, additional ounces, and postcards. These new postage rates are scheduled to go into effect on January 22, 2023.

  • How much are stamps going up and when?
    The price of a stamp is about to go up again, for the second time in six months. The Postal Regulatory Commission approved the US Postal Service’s request to increase first-class stamps (including the Forever Stamp) from 60 cents to 63 cents starting on Jan. 22, 2023.
  • Can I use old stamps after price increase?
    Yes, you won’t have to add additional postage to make up for the price increase. You can still use an original forever stamp purchased 15 years ago for 41 cents to mail a first-class letter today without additional postage.
