      Ive had to add additional postage in the past so how does buying stamps in advance help if I still need to apply the current rate? What am I missing?

        If you get the forever stamps then you won’t have to add postage no matter when you bought it.

        If you buy the forever stamps, you won’t have to add any additional postage. Forever means just that, I have some of the first round of forever stamps and never have any issues with them.

        You can buy the “forever” stamps which are good for a first class letter no matter what the rate goes to.  So, if you buy them for 44c now, you can still use them when the rate goes to 45c.

        Buy the forever stamps. It doesn’t matter if the price goes up…they are still good to use.

      • Diedre

        if you buy forever stamps you dont have to worry about adding extra postage

        You can buy “forever” stamps.  Buy them at this week’s price and use them in the future.

    • buy forever stamps!!  (meaning that the price you pay now is good for any price increase) you never have to add any postage to them.

      I was just at the post office this week and they were out of first class stamps but sold me two books of postcard stamps (which I also wanted) saying they didn’t think the price on those were going up.  Gah!  Now I have to get a bunch of 3 cent stamps! 

    • Strange coincidence!!  I just heard this in the post office this afternoon!  I wonder why there wasn’t more said about it on the news lately.

      Yipee, I bought forever stamps last time.  Don’t think I need anymore this time I still have so many in my safe deposit box.

    • GUEST

      I bought FOREVER Christmas stamps (the ones with the ornaments) at my local Publix… therefore I have stamps for my 2012 Christmas cards.
