GEORGIA, US– The United States Postal Service (USPS) intends to temporarily increase their prices for the 2022 holiday season.
On Wednesday August 10th, the USPS filed a notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) regarding a temporary price increase for the holiday season. This price increase is something USPS has done in the past to make a revenue while keeping some of the lowest prices in the mailing industry.
The proposed price increase would go into effect at 12 am Central on October 2nd, 2022 until 12 am Central on January 22nd, 2023. The price increase would affect “commercial and retail domestic parcels: Priority Mail Express (PME), Priority Mail (PM), First-Class Package Service (FCPS), Parcel Select and USPS Retail Ground.” International mailing services will not see any price hikes.
