I was just at the Postal Regulations Forum and discovered that on April 10th forever stamps drop in value to 47 cents and media mail rates will drop 4%. I had not heard anything about this previously, so thought I would spread the word! It's not much but every penny counts sometimes.

Wow - I don't ever recall a DROP in rates (and, hey, I'm OLD!)....

You mean you don't remember the 1885 or the 1919 price drops?  The only 2 other price drops in history.  LOL

Well dang it!  I just stopped at the APC and bought 2.72 stamps.   Sigh.

The last increases was only temporary and now expires. Good for us
