Stocking Up for the Winter

Stocking Up for the Winter

The start of the new year brings winter flurries, cold weather gear, and the inevitable price increase of many goods and services. This bump up in prices also includes shipping and mailing services from FedEx, UPS, and USPS. All have announced service price increases this year by an overall average of 5 percent. While it might be difficult to offset these increases, there is one opportunity some are choosing to lock in the price they pay for certain services.

There are few things in the world that have the ability to hold their value throughout many years of ownership. Aside from collecting classic automobiles, popular works of art, or a rookie baseball card from 1916, there is an opportunity savvy individuals have turned to as a way to lock in the value of a service – investing in USPS postage stamps.

USPS Forever stamps hold their value for the life of their existence. A book of forever stamps purchased today will be just as valuable next year and every year thereafter, no matter what the price of a postage stamp happens to be in the future.

For those who want to take advantage of the power to lock in the price of mailing a letter, the clock is ticking. Postage prices are scheduled to increase from 46 cents to 49 cents on January 26. Stock up today to seal in the current rate forever.
