USPS Rate Adjustments for the Holiday Season

As we go into the Fall and Winter holiday mailing season, you may notice that the USPS prices seem a bit higher than usual.  This year, from October 3 through December 31, the USPS will be raising their rates for domestic retail packages (First Class, Parcel Select, Retail Ground, Priority Mail, and Express).  After December 31, prices will revert to their pre-holiday season levels.  International mail will not be affected by the changes.

To estimate your possible costs for sending a package during the 2022 holiday season, take a look at the USPS rate-fold for retail pricing.
