New $0.48 Metered Mail Rate Starts for First Class Mail Letters
With the 2014 U.S. Postal Service rates starting on Sunday, January 26, 2014, a new “Metered Mail” rate was introduced for all online postage vendors (i.e. Stamps.com) and postage meters.
This new Metered Mail rate provides a one cent discount for one ounce First Class Mail letters – Stamps.com customers now pay only $0.48 instead of $0.49 to send a letter.
The one cent reduction equates to a 2% discount for all First Class Letter mail.
