Postage recently rose from 39 to 41 cents. When it was 39 cents I bought some stamps that say "First Class" on the face rather than the value (39). These are the Lady Libery & US Flag stamps, picture here:
Can I use these stamps in place of the current 41 cent First- Class/Forever stamps? Or do I need to buy 2 cent stamps to make up the difference.
The reason I ask is because these stamps don’t specifically indicate the value, but only say "First Class."
They gave up on printing stamps with a value on it a while ago.
I’ve found some stamps that are old but I don’t know if it’s before the latest postage rate hike. Can I still use a "first class" stamp even though I may have bought it before they raised the postage rates?
I have some USPS breast cancer stamps that were bought around 2004. How much postage do they cover? Will they cover a first class letter today? Thanks.
I have usa 42 worth stamps at home, how do I make them first class? Like do I use more of them, or do I have to buy a first class stamp?
I know usps.com does not let you print postage for media mail. What about first class?
Hello, I bought stamps a few years ago when they raised the price from 37 cents. I rarely mail letters so I still have this book of stamps. All they say on them is FIRST CLASS USA with the statue of liberty and the USA flag in the background. My question is are these still good? I have a letter to mail and am wondering if they are still good. thanks
I bought a book of stamps before the recent rate increase. It’s the Status of Liberty/Flag stamp and it says "first class". Since the rate increase, I have mailed a few letters without adding additional postage for the increase. I have not had any letters returned. This afternoon when I checked mail a bill I had sent was refused by the postal worker picking up the mail from the apartment mail slot. He screened it out and wrote note. It wasn’t stamped insufficient postage or anything. Is this postal worker just extra vigilant and I have been lucky so far? Were they letting it slide because it probably costs more to ask for 2 more cents? What’s the real policy? Do I need to buy those annoying 2 cent stamps?
I have a large, thick, non-rigid envelope (the kind with bubble wrap inside) that I have to send priority mail. (This type of package cannot be mailed first class).
I would like to avoid buying postage online, and also would like to avoid going into post office to purchase postage.
I have several 41 cent stamps. More than enough to amount to the required .60. Would it still be considered ‘priority mail’ if I use these stamps? Is it acceptable?
If i have a stamp that only says "First Class" and the postage goes up do I have to buy 2cent stamps to mail a letter? How does the post office know how much the stamp was when I bought it if it says first class.
My postage stamp that im wanting to use i bought back a few months ago…it says USA First Class Forever and then pas a pic of the liberty bell and has 2009 in small print down the side…can i still use this now? or do i have to buy ones for 2010?! please help! Thanks!
