USPS Rates are changing on Sunday January, 17th for the USPS. It is quite a jump from where rates have been for the past 3 years. USPS is expected to raise rates from 9-10% in most areas. Compare that to FedEx and UPS which will raise their rates 4-5% and you're not that much of a jump considering USPS hasn't raised rates in 3 years. First Class rates in some areas are going down, especially in the higher weights (13-15.99 ounces). You can see additional information about USPS rates changing at this link USPS 2016 RATE CHANGES . You can also see additional information with the rates images below.
