U.S Stamps To Jump 2 Cents In May

The post office will get an extra 2-cents worth when you mail a letter starting in May. The U.S. Postal Service announced Tuesday that the price of a first-class stamp will rise to 44 cents on May 11. That gives plenty of time to stock up on Forever Stamps, which will continue to sell at the current 42-cent rate until the increase occurs. They will remain valid in the future regardless of rate hikes/AP, SR. More here.

Question: How high will stamp prices have to go before you begin seeking alternatives to first-class mail (if you haven't already)?
