USPS Announces No Rate Hikes for 2010

October 23, 2009 Jared Shusterman


Great news for all our customers using direct mail — and direct mailers everywhere.

The USPS cited that it would not increase prices for "market dominant" products for 2010.

Simply stated, there will not be a price increase for products including First-Class Mail, Standard Mail, periodicals, and single-piece Parcel Post.

Changes in pricing for competitive products — Priority Mail, Express Mail, Parcel Select, and most international products — are under consideration. A decision is expected to be announced in November.
