I am giving a thumbs up just because some tool gave this a TD. For a small business owner and the consumers that use them a few penny here and there add up.

And I just bought a bunch of forever stamps last month! But props to USPS, now if they would only bring shipping back down. Went up due to high gas prices, and now with low gas prices still high shipping.

Just bought 100 stamps last week, but they needed to go out, so.. oh well. Good to hear this either way.

They just jacked up prices on everything else by ~20% in January. Talk about inflation! Laughable.

Not a hot deal. The only time it's a potential deal is to buy forever stamps before an increase. It doesn't apply in this instance and doesn't meet the rules/criteria of a hot deal.

There is reason for this. Stamps prices were raised during recession, and federal court recently ruled that those price increase cannot be permanent in nature. Thus, they are complying by court order!

Who cares about their stamp costs, the Priority Mail and 1st Class Package costs went up quite a bit.

The Post Office is already struggling and this mandated price decrease might be the nail in the coffin imo. Time will tell.

This is far from a "slick deal": for those who bought forever stamps.
