    2019 USPO rates....most going up on Jan 27, 2019!

    First class mail cost is going up from .50 cent to .55 cent. Those using the PWE will be glad to know that the extra oz stamp will be going down from .21 cent to .15 cent. See link. https://www.stamps.com/usps/postage-rate-increase/

    The changes include new zone based pricing for first class packages. You'll see higher increases for shipping to the East Coast, compared to little or no increase for packages shipped locally.

    The postage rates are why I make sure my trades are worth the postage. After a few trades where the postage was more than the cards were worth, I make sure the bv of the cards involved is high enough to justify the trade. The only exception to that is PWE trades where I don't mind helping someone out for the cost of the stamp even if the cards are of little value.

    So I probably average a little under a trade a week (maybe 3 a month) but they are almost always decently high in value.

    I do paypal shipping now- 2.66 for under 4 oz and I don't have to deal with the lines at the PO. Still, postage rates for small packets are beyond ridiculous. They went from about $1 to $3 and up in just a couple of years, ridiculous. Most of the time when I trade I pay more for shipping than I paid for the cards I traded, still its a lot of fun!

    Most of my trading is done with PWE....it helps with the bigger trades using bubble envelopes.....Best regards, David

    Definitely a bummer to see the prices going up again......

    Fortunately, I am not a real high volume trader, so it won't be too bad, especially keeping it to PWE's when possible.

    Where it will hurt is doing the TTM autographs - will see how that goes in the New Year.....
