Just a head's up to all US shippers that the USPS rates for Priority mail
went up this week. I believe this is the temporary "holiday increase" that was
in the news a month or so ago. It doesn't look like 1st class rates changed
form what I can gather...

Thanks for the heads up! But yeah, first class did also increase slightly.

I'm still waiting for that announcement of rates going down anywhere

1st class I believe was .25, we adjusted, hopefully it will revert back but I’m
not holding my breath

Both rates were increased on the 18th. First class is up $0.25 & Priority Mail
is up $0.40. My guess is they will just roll these over into January as every
year there is an increase. this one just came earlier.
