The cost to mail a letter is up slightly now that new postal rates are in effect.
Stamp prices increased one cent, from 45 cents to 46 cents, for one-ounce letters, effective Sunday, Jan. 27. The cost for letters weighing more than one ounce stayed the same, at 20 cents for each additional ounce, according to an announcement from the U.S. Postal Service.
Postcard stamps also increased by one cent, from 32 cents to 33 cents. Letters under one ounce mailed anywhere internationally cost $1.10, the announcement states.
Those looking to save a few cents could stock up on the postal service's Forever stamps, which are usable even after stamp prices change.
